I felt the same way, it was great to finally see Edward's point of view, since we already had 3 books from Bella's perspective, and one with Jacob's. I think its important to know all the stuff that was going on with his struggle to not kill her, and how he fell in love with her. without this book you don't really get why and how Edward came to love her so much. I think this book is very important to completing the story. There is no way you can not like Edward after reading this.
