Book group read. Stephanie Meyer is great at thinking up interesting conflicts. She's also pretty good at working up to a climax. But she is a master at the anti-climax. Everything always works out so conveniently. Don't bother getting worried that something might go wrong; it won't, not really. Or if it does, it'll be fixed very soon.
I did like this better than the Twilight books (I couldn't make myself read the last one after the reviews). There were a lot of interesting (or at least potentially difficult) questions raised. Too bad the book didn't really do much with them.
