I am so happy that I was able to finish reading the second book of the twilight series, new moon by Stephenie Meyer. The second book adds more excitement on the love story of Bella Swan and Edward Cullen. Though some things had happened that resulted from their “not- so-good- break-up” but still the story knocks me out of my senses.
The story started when a-not-so-happy Bella cerebrated her 18th birthday and she was quite annoyed on the fact that Edward will always remain 17 while she will surely grow old. But Edward made it clear that he will always love her even if she will look like her grandmother in the future. Alice, Edward’s vampire sister, planned a party that turned to be a chaotic one when the clumsiness of Bella Swan took place causing her to spill her blood. Jasper, Edward’s brother, could not take the scent of the blood and tried to attacked Bella.
Though Edward was able to stopped Jasper, he thought that he caused Bella a lot of troubles and his family moved out of Forks, leaving Bella almost dying out of pain. She was so depressed and during those times, she befriended Jacob Black, who turned out to be a werewolf and the mortal enemies of the vampires. She began to develop closeness to Jacob and later on, Jacob become his protector against Victoria, James’ mate.
But Bella become wild that she was trying different dangerous stuffs like riding motorcycles, meadow-hiking and the worst of all, cliff diving. Since Alice has the power to see the future, she saw on her visions that Bella tried to commit suicide, she then confided it Rosalie before going to Forks to see if Bella is really dead.
Though Alice had confirmed to herself that Bella only jumped on the cliff for some recreational purpose and that she is alive but unfortunately, Rosalie had told Edward about it and when Edward called the Swan’s residence, Jacob answered him that Charlie was on the funeral which is Harry Clearwater’s funeral and he thought that it was Bella’s funeral.
He planned not to outlive Bella and decided to go to Volturi to asked for his death but Bella and Alice were fast enough to stop him and the two lovers were reunited and were back in each others’ arm. And Bella was somewhat able to overcome Rosalie’s aversion on her.
The story ended on the confrontations of Edward, Bella and Jacob. The plot was not that good for it causes more trouble on Bella’s part. But the great part about it is the fact that Edward will never leave her no matter what may happen but he is firm that he will not turn Bella into a vampire but he is not aware of the things that may happen in the future.
And I’m just happy about the story and I am very eager to read the third book, Ecclipse. Hoping for more…new excitements and adventures. And I wish the second movie will be out too soon…
