Reviews for Eclipse


Criticas Reviews 2007 December
Gr 8 Up-Picking up where Luna Nueva (Alfaguara, 2007) left off, this book continues the tortured love story of a human teen and her vampire boyfriend. Having returned from a quick trip to Italy to retrieve an errant Edward, Bella finds herself severely grounded by her father and at odds with her friend Jacob, a werewolf and mortal enemy of Edward [...]. Adding to these complications are Bella's impending graduation and vampire transformation and a wild pack of vampire newborns on a killing spree. As in the two previous installments, it is Meyer's effective and intense portrayal of first love in all its urgency, passion, and confusion that drives the story along with the supernatural elements coming in a close second. [...] Meyer knows what her fans want: thrills, chills, and a lot of romance, and she delivers on all counts. [SLJ, 9/5/2007] Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.

Gr 8 Up-Spanish readers will devour Meyer's vampire love saga. When Isabella Swan moves to the gloomy town of Forks and meets mysterious, alluring Edward Cullen, her life takes a thrilling and terrifying turn. The language is fast paced, realistic, succinct, and easy to follow. The ndice de vampiros in Amanacer, the final book in the series, allows readers to follow the history of the various vampire clans. The effective use of Latin-American Spanish will introduce readers who are fluent in Spanish to a series that has captivated America.-Eric Gmez, Broward County African-American Research Library, Fort Lauderdale, FL
