I was overwhelmed by the truth of my own words. This moment was so perfect, so right, there was no way to doubt it. His arms wrapped around me, holding me against him….
If felt like every nerve ending in my body was a live wire. “Forever,” he agreed.
WHEN YOU LOVED THE ONE WHO WAS KILLING YOU, IT LEFT YOU NO OPTIONS. How could you run, how could you fight, when doing so would hurt that beloved one? If your life was all you had to give, how could you not give it? If it was someone you truly loved?
TO BE IRREVOCABLY IN LOVE WITH A VAMPIRE is both fantasy and nightmare woven into a dangerously heightened reality for Bella Swan. Pulled in one direction by her intense passion for Edward Cullen, and in another by her profound connection to a werewolf Jacob Black, she has endured a tumultuous year of temptation, loss, and strife to reach the ultimate turning point. Her imminent choice to either join the dark but seductive world of immortals or pursue a fully human life has become the thread from which the fate of two tribes hangs.
After reading Twilight and New Moon I didn’t know what other kind of dangerous trouble that Bella could get into next. Eclipse was a very interesting book to read because it remined me a bit of the limiting perspective of the characters when reading a book in the first person. I thought it was also very limited when I was reading Twilight and New Moon too but I guess it finally got to me when I started reading Eclipse. I wished to myself that if only Meyer could write about what was going on with both Edward and Jacob besides what Bella is seeing or hearing or feeling. I felt so sad for Jacob when I was reading this novel because he is suffering so much. Bella felt for the pain that he is feeling but she was the major cause for the pain period of his life. I was totally on Jacob’s side in this book too but I began to notice that Edward is so much more mature than Jacob. I also finally see that maybe Edward is someone that I think might be what Bella needs in a love mate. Jacob is only a 16/17 year old even though he has grown physcially to be in his mid-to-late twenties while Edward has matured after living for almost more than 100 years.
It was very exciting to read this novel because there where a couple of issues that were left unsolved in the last two books that I really wanted to know about. There was also a lot of cool legends that were told in this story that I really enjoyed reading because it helped explain a lot to me that I was curious about. I finally got the end and I wanted to know more because Bella and Edward were on their way to becoming married and then Bella was going to be an vampire immortal. I also couldn’t wait to get into the last book in the series Breaking Dawn because I heard so much gossip about it and I wanted to know what all the fuss is about. This was one interesting novel that I had a good time reading and can now understand all the Twilight addiction going on that kind of reminds me of how everyone was so in the Harry Potter series a couple of years ago. I’m definitely excited about the movie and I hope that it won’t be the last because I think that the other three books in the series, New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn, could be turned into some amazing movies just like I know the movie Twilight will be amazing but not as good as the novel. Here are the descriptions of the books from the back cover and cover flaps and pictures:
“BELLA?” Edward’s soft voice came from behind me. I turned to see him spring lightly up the porch steps, his hair windblown from running. He pulled me into his arms at once, just like he had in the parking lot, and kissed me again. This kiss frightened me. There was too much tension, too strong an edge to the way his lips crushed mine—like he was afraid we had only so much time left to us.
I FELT LIKE I WAS TRAPPED IN ON OF THOSE TERRIFYING NIGHMARES, the one where you have to run, run till your lungs burst, but you can’t make your body move fast enough…. But this was no dream, and, unlike the nightmare, I wasn’t running for my life; I was racing to save something infinitely more precious. My own life meant little to me today.
