** spoiler alert ** I can't say I am glad that this book was SO much better than Twilight, because that means I really do need to read Eclipse -- but I am glad I read this book and didn't just stop at Twilight. I cared so much more in this book than in Twilight -- could it be that Jacob is a better character than Edward? the answer, at least for me, is Hell Yes. Jacob would be so much better for our whiny heroine. He makes her smile, and not wonder about the what ifs -- while Edward is the king of what ifs.

I was also glad that most of this book didn't have our "woe is me" hero around -- much like I wanted Bill gone from Sookie's life (the dead series that True Blood is based off of) I wanted Edward gone too. I just didn't know it was so very possible.

I missed Alice and Jasper, my two favorite Cullens, but I was willing to not have them if I could not have Edward.

AND, my new favorite vampire? Aro. Yes indeedy, he is just too awesome for words. I relish the fact that he may return in one of the next two books. Can't wait really.

And I was crying at the end. More even than when she left Jacob at her house to chase after Edward. I feel his pain, and I want him to get Bella. I want Jacob to be happy.

enough of the disjointed review -- I will be reading Eclipse here soon.
