This review of NEW MOON is brought to us by Ángela, Ana Belén & Beatriz.
As you all know, this is the second part of the Twilight Saga written by Stephenie Meyer. The Twilight Saga is a favourite for many of the students in this class so we want to include reviews for all four books. All of them focus on the town of Forks, where a young girl from Florida, Bella Swan, moves in with her father and quickly falls for Edward Cullen, a seemingly normal kid who hides a big secret: he and his family are vampires.
In New Moon, Bella and Edward are separated after an incident where Bella was almost attacked by Jasper, Edward’s brother. Edward realises that he values her so much that they need to be apart, as he does not want to hurt her or run any risks with her. He is distraught about the changes that his presence has brought upon her life.
Bella is devastated and even considers taking her own life. It is thanks to Jacob Black, a sixteen-year-old werewolf who is in love with Bella, that she manages to get herself together again. Jacob then seizes this opportunity to attempt to conquer her heart.
We especially love the conclusion of this book, which is set in Europe, and ends with the threat of a fight between our vampires from Forks and vampire murderers from Italy, who are upset about the fact that Edward hasn’t made Bella a vampire yet…
The book is above all a love story, and we are sure that the interaction between humans, vampires and werewolves will appeal to all lovers of fantasy books. It combines romance and suspense with a supernatural twist, and it is full of surprising twists and turns! We recommend it to all adolescents and even adults, people of all ages like Stephenie!
And of course, after reading the book, you should see the movie!
