This is the second book of the Twilight series. While I thought the first was one was ok, I disliked this one immensely. Not only were the characters simple and obvious, but the entire plot was depressing. If I wanted to read a depressing book, I would just go read a unfiction murder mystery, not a vampire romance book with irrational characters. Saying that, the book was better then the movie, and that’s just saying how bad the movie was.

This is Part two from the Twilight series, I don't think its as good as part one. I love they brought Jacob's character more alive. He becomes a wolf this time. So now its vampires mixed with wolves, you'll have to read it to see how that works!!

I have not finished the book, I love the storyline. But if you are someone who loves good literature, this is not the book for you! Last year I finished the Harry Potter books. The writing was awesome! After that I read Twilight. The writing was not nearly as good! Fun Fact: J.K. Rowling won a children’s literature award!! So I also recommend Harry Potter!!

Yeah, I know you've all read this but this is a great book! Probably, though, the only reason I like it as much as I do is because it's part of the "Twilight" saga and I'm hooked. It's very sad. "New Moon" is my leaast favorite book in the saga.

I really enjoyed reading this book. Stephenie Meyer really has a style of writing that captures emotion and makes the reader understand. There is a lot of suspense and action, especially at the end. I would recommend this book to everyone who has read the first book. As for anyone who hasn't read the first book, read it. You will not regret it. You will simply want more...

Who said 2 books can't be equally good? I think so. Stephenie Meyer has done it again in this fantastic sequel to Twilight. Bella fuigures that Jacob a.k.a Jake is a warewolf after a movie in port angles. ANY GIRL 10 OR OLDER SHOULD READ THIS BOOK! I STARTED THE BOOK ON MONDAY AND I FINISHED IT ON WEDNESDAY! IT WAS SO GOOD!

This is a continuation of Twilight and I was NOT disapointed! It was just as good if not better then Twilight! If you've read twilight you will love New Moon with its suspence. Trust me, it will keep you up at night worrying for Bella and trying to solve her problems in her head! You better read it!!!

I actually thought this book was even better than the first-more unexpected twists. I also liked how the other weaved other well known stories into this one-particularly Romeo and Juliet.

I thought this book was awesome! It is just as good as the first book. First it was vampires and now it's vampires and warewolfs. This book is full of adventure twisted in with an extra bite.This book makes you want to keep reading and reading. I would say that this is one of those books that keep you on the edge of your seat.

This book is absolutely amazing. Meyer spins this story more like a severed artery, the pain and depression is very realistic. She describes a great friendship between Bella and Jacob. With a happy ending this truly is a classic

As New Moon, the sequel to Twilight, begins, a bloody incident at Bella’s 18th birthday party forces Edward to conclude that, as a vampire, by his mere nature his presence is dangerous and that he’s compromising her safety. Edward and his family leave town and Bella is devastated and spends several months despondent before finding new companionship in Jacob, a family friend. But she is surprised and hurt when, after a few months, Jacob also begins acting strangely.

New Moon doesn’t quite measure up to Twilight, but it’s an enjoyable read. I’m still not convinced that Bella and Edward are actually in love – Edward seems to be influenced more by Bella’s “scent,” and Bella by Edward’s glamour, though I suppose if they’re both happy, what’s the difference? I’m looking forward to Eclipse.

Ms. Meyer acknowledges both Muse and My Chemical Romance as inspiration for this book. How cool is that?

This book is the sequel to Twilight and its very hard to put down just like Twilight was. It tells about Bellas adventures to save Edward. I can't wait until Breaking Dawn comes out in August. I truley love this series. THe way the author wrote the book and the idea is great! I don't know how you could ever think of it.

The second book in the Twilight Series (see Twilight below). This is a really good book, but really sad and it broke my heart. It's not as good as the first book (Twilight) or the book that follows it (Eclipse) but is still really good.

This terrfic book, sequel to the bestseller Twilight, is action packed and very detailed. The book continues the relationship of the now 18 year old Bella Swan and her true love, vampire Edward Cullen. When a accident occurs at Bella's birthday party, Edward rethinks his actions and leaves Bella. Bella's life takes a major turn, and her only comfort is an old family friend, Jacob Black. But when she finds out a secret about Jacob that threatens her relationship with both him and Edward, she realizes she has to pick a side. And with an angry vampire hunting her down, she must do it fast. This book is amazing, and the plot makes you want more. The characters are very relatable, and you can feel every emotion along with them. I enjoyed this book very much, and I know that people who like sci-fi, vampires, and romance will too.

New Moon is one of the greatest books of all time! It is about a girl named Bella who is strong in her relationship with the good vampire, Edward. When Bella turns 18, she gets a party with Edward and his "family" of other good vampires. But when Bella gets a papercut tearing off wrapping paper on her present, everything goes wrong. This is a wonderful book for people who like romance and action. It is a terribly sad book, too, and let's you have a good cry. I would recommend this book to all teens!!!!! (New Moon is the second book in Stephenie Meyer's series)
