The parallel with Romeo and Juliet was amusing. Jacob was a fun character, and the background of the tribal wolf powers was quite interesting. It is a strange but somehow believable dichotomy that Bella is such a pathetic mess when Edward leaves her, yet turns to extreme sports to try to keep him around in her head. Too bad they didn't have a psychiatrist on the vampire staff as well as an M.D., LOL!

The most comical moment in the book is when Bella gets a tiny paper cut and Jasper goes crazy with hunger. Yet this guy spends most of his time in a high school, where of course no one EVER gets hurt (insert industrial strength eye roll here)....

I didn't like this one as well as the first or third, but if you are reading them in series you really can't skip this one, because you'll want the story of the Quilleute.
