AFTER AN ECLIPSE

It was my network programming lab exam and I was busy copy pasting the code for my question..I felt a bit embarrassed and I  realized that my standards as a B-Tech graduate had fallen steeply..Then I questioned myself, "why didn't I make an effort to study??"..Well, It was because I was totally absorbed into this book called Eclipse..

Firstly the reason why I chose to read the book was because of the movie Twilight..I literally loved everything about the film and its cast (specially Kristen :P)..Although I had seen it long ago, I resisted myself from reading the novel on which the film is based..Just a couple of days ago, I replayed the films twilight and new moon in my laptop and out of impulse, I got my hands onto the third part of the twilight series book called Eclipse..well, the book was good to start off and hence I initially came out with status updates on facebook and twitter claiming that it was a good book..There was a mixed reaction from my friends..Actually few of them supported the statement and the rest almost started considering me as a gay emphasizing on the fact that it was a girly novel..Well I couldnt exactly understand what was wrong with the book unless I finished half of it..By the time I reached 100 pages or so, I started to feel a bit dizzy with this obsessed love of Edward and Bella..I felt jacob was a sigh of relief when I read the story..His emotions were technically so feasible and genuine..The most annoying part was the narration that seemed fairly awkward..I bet that, atleast 30% of the novel has sentences like "He put his lovely arms around my waist" or "He kissed me gently and slowly that washed away my pain" or something like "I could feel his cold breath" or "I hugged him and pierced myself into his stony cold chest"..lmao..who cares if Edward's chest is stony??..Goodness gracious..Even if his chest was stony, as a reader I dont have to be reminded of his stony chest a lakh times till the end of the book..Maybe the author was under the presumption that I have a bad memory or maybe she was trying to make me fantasize their romance..lol..

I patiently continued turning the pages and at a point of time the novel reached an acme..I suddenly felt that the novel was turning out be marvellous..At this point when I started liking it, I had analysed again the things that I didnt like in it..Then I tried to relate this too-much-of-intimacy thing between Edward and Bella with one crucial point that I missed out..Bella and Edward (seemed) were teens and it was their first love..This point is reasonable enough to wipe out the negativities I had about their obsessed love..First love/teen love is genuinely obsessive even in real life and that answered the overdoing of their intimacy too..Okay fair enough I continued..The mind blowing part of the story was the perfect triangle love..I had never seen perfect triangles onscreen or even in any of the books that I have read..In every triangle one person necessarily ought to have a negative side(probably to give a good ending)..But in this case, it was totally different..It had three perfect characters totally and genuinely in love with each other..I really cant stop myself from quoting this part of the book..

Edward to Jacob: “And if you ever kiss her again, I will break your jaw for her.”
Jacob to Edward: “What if she wants me to?”
Bella to Jacob: Huh??..(shocked)
Edward to Jacob: “If that’s what she wants, then I won’t object it.”

oh god!! what a triangle..!! Awesome really..:) By the time I reached the end, I joined hands with the twilight supporters..Now I am against the critics..All in all, the Edward-Bella-Jacob's love was fantastic..The final analysis of the emotional drama I went through after reading the novel is this...Usually, the people who criticise Twilight are those matured ones whose brains really can't digest the existence of unconditional sort of love and fairytale romance that exists(might exists) in the world..People who love it are the ones (like those dreamers) who do believe in such existence of unconditional fairy-tale kind of love between a man and woman..There is a big line of seperation in the way these two kinds of people think..I am of the latter kind because there is certain truth associated with what you fantasize and dream about..I personally believe in the fact that you be what you dream..So there is no harm in fantasizing about unconditional love just like that of Edward and Bella..People of the first kind usually analyze a lot on the needs and wants of what their love has to be like, and Hence it is likely that their love might turn out to be materialistic..Instead it will be a selfless love if we just go along with the natural flow of emotions from the heart..Phew!! I guess I came out with a twilight philosophy here..

Anyways, Thanks to u, Bella, Edward and Jacob!! I love you all but I will not forgive you fellas for screwing my lab exam..:-|

  7. Nethra says:

    I will also love someone unconditionally if he has super powers like Edward or Jacob. Fantasy fictions are fun, lots better than the reality and hence I too enjoyed the book.

  8. Amogh says:

  9. asm says:

    Yup...there are four books and another one called Host that's written from Edwards point of view so that wont have description of cold stony chests and stuff. :P

  11. Nethra says:

    By the way, I love this font. Best for reading something related to fairytale and stuffs. Gives the effect, you know. ;)

    @Nethra Thanks..:) I never knew abt host actually..:P I will see that after I finish breaking dawn..

  13. garima says:

    what's wrong if she really wants the readers to fanticize abt their romance....???

    And this book is meant for both guys and girls... so clearly "stony chest" is not being refered for the interest of boys....:)

    Anyways.... it was a nice blog...

  14. vamsi says:

    yeah I accept dat there is nothing wrong in it but I just felt she overdid it..:)

  15. Richa says:

    Ooh.. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Twilight Series, absolutely! All the books, really! AAND the stone chests included!
    But I suppose they're excusable for a lab exam.. ;)
    I've lost count of the things I've screwed up myself, reading those. :)

  16. I managed to catch up on both the movies - Twilight and New Moon sometime back.Twilight was ok-ish but I felt New Moon was too cheesy.

    Now that I've read your post,may I'll give the books a shot :D

  17. Well written! :) .. And now even I gotta read this book. Though I don't really believe in fairytale romances but your description of this one-of-a-kind love triangle makes me want to read it..

  18. Yemiledu says:

    Hey that was a wonderful analysis.
    I havent seen the movie or read the book. But reading your review. I feel I will absolutely love this book.
    But will read it when I have no exams :~P

  19. nikhil says:

    back to the juncture where u told me the gist of eclipse. Out-and-out love in true-blue n yeah.. the triangle concept exhumed my ebullience out. It wonders me if such love ever exists?? reading
    such books at the cost of a lab exam(as u presumed so, i dont believe..:P :D:)) is worthy enough. Well expressed, expecially the dissimilitude between the 2 kinds of psyche
