As before, I borrowed a few differences from this website. Since Eclipse is the last movie out there at the moment, it seems prudent to end this for now… But you know I’ll be back to do the same for Breaking Dawn (parts 1 and 2; as I’m sure you’ve already heard Stephenie Meyer is breaking up the last book into two parts for movies) when they finally come out onto the silver screen. So, for now, I leave you with the differences between “Eclipse” the Book and “Eclipse” the Movie. Hope you enjoyed reading it as much as I liked writing it!
