Eclipse

I read Eclipse by Stephanie Meyer yesterday. or, I should say, I started Eclipse yesterday and finished it at 4:15 this morning. It is my fourth book for the RIP challenge, so i've completed the number i wanted to finish. Of my original list of possibilities, two of the four i've read were on it. Ok i guess. I just started Breaking Dawn today and will include that one if i finish by Halloween. No late night reading tonight though!

so, where to begin. I'm not even going into the plot, you know what's happening right? Bella loves Edward, a vampire, but is also friends with Jacob, a werewolf, both of whom are in love with Bella. Much angst ensues. I give this one a 4. Really, Twilight was better than New Moon, which was way, way better than Eclipse. I mean, there is really only so much vacillating, whining, woe-is-me, wanna-be-ness that i can take. Those last couple pages, where we switch to Jacob's POV, were heavenly. Maybe if the books were written in 3rd person instead of 1st i'd like it more? I feel like this book was all buildup. To use a sex analogy, it was all foreplay, followed by 2 seconds of unsatisfactory intercourse. I'll finish up Breaking Dawn, but i'm not thinking i'll love it.
