So, the first book was about Edward and Bella falling in love. The second book is just 500 pages of Bella moping about Edward leaving and basically going mental. This book was worse than the first one and generally nothing of interest actually happens. The only good thing about the book was Jacob Black, but then Meyer decided that he'd be better off as a moody and irritable idiot. Possibly the funniest part of the book was when Bella was thinking about Paris and Juliet being friends/falling in love and likening this situation to that between herself and Jacob. Bella then says that '"Juliet gets dumped and ends up with Paris" would have never been a hit, which is funny considering that New Moon is exactly that and yet, for some absurd reason, it is a hit.
