About three things I was absolutely positive First Edward was a stalker and a creeper Second there was part of him — and I didn't know how potent that part might be — that suffered from Manic Depression And third I was strangely and unashamedly entertained by it allI know what you are probably doing Right now you may have your head cocked to the side with your eyes suinted wondering if you read that last part correctly I will repeat I was entertained First let me clear the air I was not entertained by the story or the writing Shit Heavens no For the same reasons why some found Midnight Sun disturbing I found it unintentionally comical I can't tell you how many times I snickered or LOL'ed Well that's a lie I probably could but it'd be an awful long review However I will touch on a few standout parts that really tickled my pickle OMG did I really just type that? Project Hindsight is melting brain cellsManic Depressed murderous vamp with feelingsLike I mentioned earlier Edward definitely suffers from manic depression He first starts off as an extremely condescending vamp but as soon as he lays his eyes on Bella and gets a whiff of her sweet smelling blood he uickly becomes a murderous hunter Now this I can understand to a degree because vamps ya know drink blood and all BUT as he is thinking of various ways to murder everyone in his biology class and eat Bella he starts whining He literally has a woe is me fuck my life moment Why did she have to come here? Why did she have to exist? Why did she have to ruin the little peace I had in this non life of mine? Why had this aggravating human ever been born? She would ruin me It's all about him isn't it? He isn't the one who's thisclose to being eaten but here he is singing the Why cruel world? song And his bitch fest continues Who was this creature? Why me why now? Why did I have to lose everything just because she happened to choose this unlikely town to appear in? sigh Are you done? Why had she come here Sometimes people move Edward It happens Man the hell up I didn't want to be the monster I didn't want to kill this room full of harmless children I didn't want to lose everything I'd gained in a lifetime of sacrifice and denial Rubs temples I wouldn't She couldn't make me You tell that little human Eddie Pats back Feel better now?Then the next page over he gets back to work plotting Bella's murder You know who Edward reminds me of best in the beginning of Midnight Sun? Have you ever seen The Smurfs? Remember old Gargamel and how he was always either planning some lame attempt to catch and eat the smurfs or crying from failing so hard? Evil crackle YessssI'll get those little blue smurfs I'll sneak into their village while they sleep and boil them alive Won't we Azrael?view spoilerHmmmwhat a weird coincidence I found a pic of that on Google Oh fangirls Still feel like swooning now? hide spoiler OH MY DEAR SWEETI don't even know honestly After reading Twilight I could kinda see how Edward the sparklepire could be appealing to teenage girls in his prissy diamond way but after I read this? This pretty much reads as the Future Abusive Boyfriends of America Handbook Oil her window so you can sneak into her room at night without her permission Force her to spend time with only you isolating her from friends and family YOU ARE NOT DONE WITH HER YET I was so creeped out I may have had to boil myself before being able to continue on in life and not feel dirty i would like to thank not only god but mormon jesus for bestowing this gift upon me in the year of our lord 2020let's all stand for 672 pages of murderous horny edward This is a yet to be completed partial draft of a novel portraying Twilight from Edward's perspective I have read like devoured the 264 pages that Stephenie Meyer posted on her website I love them flaws which were not too many considering it's a rough draft and all It would be really disappointing if Edward's story ended where it does He was always the most intriguing character to me and the story thus far explains so much of his words and actions that puzzled me before It's a bonus that he can read minds so we not only know now what he was thinking but also the thoughts of those around him I've been surprised to read just how much he knew about the future and how early he knew it thanks to Alice Makes me want to slap my forehead and go Duh No wonder he did what he did Stephenie is the only person in the universe who can guide us on this journey into the depths of Edward and I sincerely hope she continues to write this story and not let her faith in humanity be ruined by a few shameless and untrustworthy people Midnight Sun is Twilight from Edwards perspective I am one of the rabid fans who couldn't resist reading this partial draft of Midnight Sun even though Stephenie Meyer would have preferred we not hanging my head in shame but not really I am being totally honest when I say that I loved this partial draft as much if not than Twilight When reading Twilight I often thought Edward was arrogant and insensitive but that is absolutely the furthest thing from the truth He's actually one of the tormented YA heroes I've read about Here is a young 'man' who thought he could never find that deep passionate love between a man and a woman He was going through his existence thinking he was complete in himself never imagining there could be But enter Bella Swan who without trying awakened his 'shut down' heart and gave them both something to live forIn Midnight Sun we see just how tormented Edward is how torn between doing what is in his mind best for Bella and what he so desperately wants that once in an 'existence' love that soul mate that one you just cannot live without Because in my mind understanding Edward is so vital to the storyline Midnight Sun made Twilight really come alive for meI've since moved away from YA novels and on to adult themed PNRVampire stories but if Stephenie Meyer ever finishes Midnight Sun I'll be first in line to buy it I can't believe she thought she could get away with it The same damn book especially once the boy and the girl get together Ooh Read it side by side with Twilight and get Meyer's bad dialogue in stereo And with no change of voice whatsoever even though the narrator has changed As I've said in my other reviews Meyer cannot write We do get a little information on the Cullens but any character development Rosalie especially that may have happened in the first four books is forgotten in Midnight Sun More evidence of Meyer's sloppiness as a writer But if you ever had any doubts about Edward and Bella being a perfect match you can stop worrying They're eually pathetic whiny and shallow Edward might have been interesting as a kickass vampire vigilante in his rebel days; I know some police departments who could use a guy like him and save the taxpayers a lot of money but all we get is a prissy 108 year old virgin who reads and listens to music while the rest of his family have wild house ruining nookySame sloppy prose same shallow characters I suffered through four books already That's plenty Not even for the pleasure of sporking this would I have bought or even borrowed itMy undying gratitude to whomever leaked the manuscriptEdit January 5 2011 Feminist rant; proceed at your own risk I know I've mentioned Meyer's narrow worldview and anti feminism in my reviews of the other four novels but for the sake of consistency I'm going to point it out anyway There's a scene in the manuscript with the Cullens in the Forks High School cafeteria Jasper is as usual marshalling all his willpower to not leap onto the next student he sees and drain them of their blood Alice says something to the effect of it helps if you think of them as people and proceeds to give a little backstory on a student Whitney who walks by their table Whitney who has a baby sister she adores Later on Jasper is having another such moment again about a girl with tasty smelling blood who according to Alice is taking her little brother to the beach on Saturday Jasper seems to struggle with his hunger in the presence of any human so why does Meyer have to point out only the girls who tempt him? And why were both of them portrayed only as nurturing mother figures to younger siblings? Again as in the other four books a woman is only validated by having a boyfriend or a husband and by being a mother; for example Rosalie telling Bella she'd wish to be old and wrinkly with Emmett watching their grandchildren play in their front yard and her rescue of Bella once her pregnancy is discovered Esme's near suicide after the death of her child Leah's rant about how she probably became a shapeshifter because she can't have kids Oh yeah and Bella risking her life to bring her vampire hybrid into the world whatever the cost Any one of these taken separately might not be alarming to me but its prevalence in the books shows how deep Meyer's religious indoctrination runs From the earliest age young girls and women in the Mormon faith are told that they must marry and procreate that the only important work they could ever do will be as a wife and mother How is the single woman the woman with a satisfying and successful career or the woman who cannot have children to cope as a member of a Mormon congregation especially when there are judgmental members around whispering amongst themselves that somehow she isn't worthy or some man would have wanted her or the Lord would have blessed her with children? Instead of carrying this idea to the silly extreme to which Meyer carries it why couldn't Whitney have been a member of the school swim team and taken second in state in the hundred meter freestyle? Why couldn't the other girl too lazy to look up her name sorry have had mad writing skills or play the violin? Alice's powers of clairvoyance could have been used so much better here She'll be first chair violinist in the Seattle Symphony in five years that is if you don't catch her behind the building after classes Alsowhy couldn't either of them have been a guy? Oh yeah because vampirism is a metaphor for sex and you can add chronic homophobia to the list of Mormon dogmaThere's much Mormon meta in these books but that would fill four books the length of Meyer's so called saga itself I don't think Meyer even realizes she's doing it but again here we see Meyer's narrow worldview her lack of imagination her sloppiness and laziness as a writer her fear of creating characters that are anything other than Mary SuesAnd again my undying gratitude to whomever leaked the manuscript P S I've received comments like U R just jellus cuz Stephanie sic wrights better then U111or my favorite You don't like it cuz you don't get it And recently members of the LDS faith have been calling me out for pointing out Meyer's dismissal of any female character without a functioning uterus Rosalie Hale Leah Clearwater portraying them as lesser individuals Leah a badass girl wolf shapeshifter who whines about being defective because she stopped menstruating and that's probably why nobody imprinted on her and Rosalie who was turned as a young single woman I've been saying from a position of personal experience that the narrow worldview comes from Meyer's religious upbringing I understand religious indoctrination and how bred into the bone it can be and I'm saying Meyer cannot seem to get out of that mindset when she's writing I find it shallow and trite and a negative message to the young women and girls who read the books along with the other bullshit about turning your free will over to a controlling abusive man beast and portraying that as romantic because he's rich and pretty I further understand that these books provoke strong emotions in people If you are here out of curiosity and you gave it 5 stars you can forget about a meeting of the minds on the uality and merit of this series So try to be a grownup about other people's opinions differing from yours Read and move on I typically stay as far away from romance novels as I can but I got bitten okay bad pun by the Twilight Series I started reading them because I needed a book fix after the last Harry Potter book may the Harry Potter series rest in peace The first in the Twilight series appropriately named Twilight is pretty good but not Stephenie Myer's best writing With each addition in the series her writing gets better and better I read the last book and started getting geared up for the movie A friend at work told me about the partially completed draft of Midnight Sun being leaked so I went to Meyer's website to see what happened Yep Someone LOSER leaked a version of it Meyer decided that for now and indefinitely she is so upset about the leak that she can't write any in the book THANK YOU afforementioned LOSER She made an interesting move though to save her readers' honor and uploaded the unfinished manuscript to her website herself No one has to feel guilty looking for it and reading it because she's taken the high road and freely given it I started reading it not expecting to be bitten hard enough to become a wannabe vampire myself Wow Midnight Sun is the best book in the series and it isn't even officially part of the series I found myself swooning like a teenage girl okay like Bella herself and wanting Edward to fall in love with ME I'm pathetic I know but that's okay We all need a little nibble of romance every now and then Read the first 11 or so chapters Meyer posted on her website Just as bad as the rest Edward seems pretty delusional about Bella and her non existent personality and he's even creepy from his own point of view Spying on her while she's sleeping and reading and who knows what elseif it was supposed to be and acknowledged as creepy and slightly wrong I wouldn't have a problem with it But apparently Meyer thinks it's perfectly normal and acceptable for teenage boys to stalk young girls and watch them while they sleepThe only good thing I have to say about Edward is that at least in this one I can better see the struggle and temptation he has about killingeating Bella once again if treated as creepy and weird as it should be I wouldn't have a problem with it as opposed to Twilight where there was barely any tension at allAlso about not finishing it just because you are so upset and depressed about it being leaked online? Way to be mature and rational Sometimes I really think Meyer is some whiny teenage girl on the internet writing her own love novel with her playing Bella I for one wouldn't be that surprised I guess it helps me keep hope in the human race that a grown woman isn't writing these and seriously thinks she is writing this amazing wonderful perfect romance because otherwiseI don't know what to think Can't get enough of Edward's hissy snarly growly velvet honey voice? Bella's selflessness? The thirst the infernal burning thirst? Multione dimensional characterizations Esme's tenderness Rosalie's vanity and even dear old Edward who graduates in this draft from paper to origami but still retains his delightfully tiresome diet Byron shtick? Wonder what that waitress was really thinking when she delivered those mushroom raviolis?Boy do I have a book for you Ohhh yeah I went there check out the video to see all my unpopular opinionsif you dareAnyway onwards to the review WHAT THE FCK DID I JUST READ??????? Here's the GLORIOUS LINK After being burned so many timesdo I dare to hope?GUYS her website is a countdown it's notbutwhat if it is???? CUE THE HYPERVENTILATION it was REAL This one's now the partial draft there's gonna be a Midnight Sun Midnight Sun
