Welcome All!

Hello everyone and welcome to the Stephenie Meyer Eclipse board. My name is Paul Goat Allen and I'll be your humble moderator as we delve into Meyer's realm of vampires, werewolves and, well, complicated relationships. I just finished Eclipse a few minutes ago so I'm really looking forward to discussing everything – the plot twists, the cool symbolism, the themes – so let's go!
Paul

Re: Welcome All!

Well I believ that the 3rd book in the series was the best of them all I didnt like the way the 2nd book started as them being apart i could feel Bella's emptyness and understood why she would do all those crazy things to hear the swwet sound of Edwards voice. The 3rdbook did take me longer time to read but, my favorite part was when Edward and Jacob were talking about Bella in the tent the way the sounded so calm about the whole situation and talked about how much pain Edward had experienced when he had to leave her so she could live a normal life it was so heart breaking for Bella and Edward

Twig-
I know! That scene in the tent was unreal! I could not believe when reading it the amount of self control Edward has; again and again he is tested with that self control in so many different ways!!!

At the risk of sounding really dumb, was that really Edward's voice that she was hearing in book 2? I was very confused by that whole plotline...

Re: Welcome All!

Haha--I think Stepehenie also explains the voices in her personal correspondence--just not sure which one. it really wasn't his voice, just her making it up in her head. if i find the info, i'll paste the link here. :]

Honestly, I loved the second book--stepehnie herself even said to re-read new moon after you finish it. I had to do the same thing because I (along with many other fans) sped right through new moon until we hit a "Vampire" spot (aka Alice). I think if you re-read new moon, that's when you come to love Jacob even more.

Honestly, I'm not sure which one I like more. :] They are all very different and tell very different stories.
