Up until just about now, when Jacob becomes a werewolf, I have been so deeply into this book. Now the tension has broken off, and I can see Bella is returning to reality, Jacob will keep his distance and Edward will come back into the picture to resume their boring relationship.
But until now I have been so into Bella's depression and madness. I really grieved and cried with her, and thrilled with hope as things looked up and up with Jacob. In a lot of ways, this book is actually a lot better than Twilight. I guess though, in either book, the headline romance is not really gripping.
