I really liked this book...especially after New Moon. A number of friends said this was their favorite in the series and I can see why (although they also said that not many people cared for it, but everyone I spoke to said it was their favorite).I really liked the back story on the Quileute, Jasper, and Rosalie. It really was nice to get to know a little bit more about those kind of tertiary characters. I also thought the amount of action was good, too. I will go on record saying I'm not really a fan of love triangles, though.
