it was ok
bookshelves: supernatural, romance, wtf-crazy, ya

I was so ready to completly hate this book after 400 pages. Man Bella is mean and selfish! (Also needy, useless, weak and annoying.) Edward is boring in every single way. As in New Moon Jacob is the only thing that makes it readable and somewhat compelling, but she seemed to be trying to make up for the uneveness of the Edward vs Jacob battle in the second book by making Edward more understanding (read: dull) and Jacob meaner, something that made the book uncomfortable to read at some points (though i'm willing to forgive him this as Edward is so annoying). Then she put forward a more or less rational explanation for Bella's feelings and I think she might actually have touched on a good idea there - the supernatural vs what would have been if there was no such thing. A nice way to wrap up the love triangle but still leaves the lingering annoyance that she chose to boring, chauvinistic one.
