New Moon: Book vs. Movie

posted by Nell Minow

Spoiler alert: My pal Jen Yamoto has put together a great list of differences/improvements comparing Stephanie Meyers’ book, New Moon, and the movie.

    While I agree that most of these are improvements on the book, I think the biggest problem of the book is one that goes completely unaddressed in the movie: the abrupt plot shift when the hunt for Victoria is put on hold to stop Edward from trying to exposing himself in Italy. The first one had the same problem – the equally abrupt arrival of James’s coven – which was arguably fixed by introducing them earlier.
