New Moon

We would like to point out that we are, without a doubt, not hungry for any more. But we can’t exactly turn back now that we’ve started and have a handful of readers. We are under strict time restraints with this particular book, but we will strive to meet the standards we set in reviewing the first.

Meyer preludes “New Moon” with a quote from “Romeo and Juliet.” We, as proud English majors, are very insulted. We’re sorry, Will; we really are.

We start out this book with Bella running, running, running, tripping, running… we don’t know WHY she is running, but we are assuming it is to save *someone’s* life. A clock tolls (cuckoo!) and she knows she did not run fast enough. The end of the prologue? “For in failing at this, I forfeited any desire to live. The clock tolled again, and the sun beat down from the exact center point of the sky.” (3)

We feel we may end up, unknowingly, forfeiting our sanity.

Read on, dear friends…

  4. if you sanity does go, at least you’ll have the comfort of knowing it was for a noble cause…. giving twi-bashing fun to the masses!

  5. Do you reckon that Twilight is being used as mind control for a massive cult?
