What this chapter should be called: Why are there still 2 chapters after this?
Edward creep-o-meter: 5
Well, folks, we are nearing the end of the crapfest that has been Eclipse. This chapter here is pretty much the last one with any real substance, and yet somehow, there are still 2 more chapters after this. There are some things I am never going to understand, and Stephenie Meyer’s writing is one of them.
Let’s just read this chapter, okay? Finding the courage to dive in to one of these things is kind of like ripping off a band-aid. A band-aid that’s practically fused to your skin, stuck to your hair, and to top it off, the majority of your wound is adhered to the sticky part instead of the nice little cotton pad.
Bella is being all sad and shocked, while Edward and and Seth pick up vampire pieces and put them in a pile.
“I didn’t have time to recover before both he and Seth were back, Edward with his arms full of Riley. Seth was carrying a large chunk — the torso — in his mouth. They added their burden to the pile, and Edward pulled a silver rectangle from his pocket. He flipped open the butane lighter and held the flame to the dry tinder. ”
So, Seth has Riley’s torso in his freaking mouth? That can’t taste good. Then again, I wonder if a werewolf would eat a vampire. Not for the taste, but just out of spite. Kind of like the way I always start with the head of the gummy bear.
