Jen Yamato, one of the most Twilight savvy reporters out there, has a comparison of New Moon the movie vs. the book and how “changes” in her opinion work.
“If you’re a diehard Twilighter, you might wonder just how different New Moon the film is from the book. Below, we name 20 ways the movie deviates from Meyer’s tome – and works all the better for it.

So how do Rosenberg’s additions, changes, and omissions from the text affect New Moon on film, and which ones work the best?”
Here’s Melissa Rosenberg on the red carpet talking with us about one such change.
