I loved Midnight Sun so much better than Twilight because it was just more interesting. To hear the way Edward describes
his first contact with "the girl" and his dry humor. PLUS I would far rather read about the life and happenings in the
Cullen household than what Bella is cooking for dinner. I can only imagine what that meadow scene was like sighhhhh
I loved it because not only is it from Edward's POV but it also portrays the Cullen family in a different light. Emmett is a lot more caring and isn't portrayed as the big hulking goof-ball. He became my 2nd fave character after reading the MS draft. Jasper is my fave purely because Jackson is soooo hot. Also you get to know a bit about the other members (Rosalie's jealousy is a hoot) and also introduces the Denali vamps and Peter and Charlotte. I know these came into it in Breaking Dawn but still it helped. I don't want Midnight Sun to repeat the whole of Twilight, but just cover the 4 books in 1 or 2. New Moon wouldn't be very long. The marriage and honeymoon parts of BD would be interesting. I must admit after reading the MS draft I re-read all the Twilight books and kept thinking, gee I wonder what Edward is thinking during this part.
The think I loved about Midnight Sun was reading that Edward had all the same thought and feeling Bella had... It was just deeper proof that they belonged together... Edward thought Bella was to good for him because he was a "monster" and in Twilight you here Bella saying all the time that Edward is to good for her... I also liked when they talked about there smell... Bella loved Edwards smell and reading Midnight Sun it was the same for Edward!
Edward. Just knowing the type of person he is and how he always over thinks every detail before makig one single step intrigued me. But it was truly the fact that Bella always had her own presumption of what was .. andmost of the tme you wanted his perspective on the sitation. A lot of events needed to be seen from his point of view to get a better understanding of them. So, in my opinion, Midinight Sun would be the best book of them all . :)
The short draft of midnight sun on-line, to me is a gift inspite of the situation. I read it and fell in love with it, also saved it so I can be in tuned with Edward's mind and body whenever I wish. Hey! call me edobsess, but I feel so connected with him in MS. I love MDSN so much, I feel so much compassion for this vamp boy, who struggles with this violent emotions, the true nature of the beast within.
His human life was taken through no fault of anyone, it's one of the casualities of nature, I found myself admiring a character who loved his family, who wanted to serve his country at such a tender age, and for the cruelty of death to come knocking, is one to slap the sweet life of humanity in the face. This young boy thought he was totally dead, only to discover he was a living dead who can't really live among the living without the risks of dangerous encounters.
Adjusting was one of frustration, anger, and rebellion. Settling in became another adjustment, the emotions of love companionship around him, he was all alone.
Midnight Sun will take us through it all, through the mind of Edward and we will feel his yearning. We wil bask in it and enjoy his journey of rough and smooth paths.
Gosh, I have no idea . . . I think it might be the way Edward views the world, and also, Edward's thoughts were always kind of a mystery to me, so i liked having a sense of how he thinks. And i like to see Bella through his eyes, ya know? The intense way he loves her and wants her to be safe . . . I wonder whet New Moon would be like in his point of view ? ? ?
