What is it about Stephenie Meyer’s “riveting vampire love saga” (direct quote from the book jacket :)) that makes her books so irresistable? Is it the other-worldliness of it? Is it the depth of the characters…one in particular? Is it the devotion, the inevitability, the sacrifice? Lisa and I can’t figure out why we are UNABLE to put these books down. And I mean this literally-it’s ridiculous. I received my copy of Eclipse in the mail this week (thank you again to my birthday benefactors) and when I haven’t been reading it I’ve been pondering the plot and the characters. This morning it took every ounce of self-control I had to put the book down (in an out-of-the-way place so I wouldn’t be tempted to read it) and get on with my morning. There are few books I’ve read that are this compelling..but I mean really-vampires & werewolves?? What is it that makes a book, especially this book, so enticing? PLEASE NOTE: I have not finished Eclipse so please don’t give away anything past page 410 :).
