How was it? Back in the day, when it was announced that Stephanie Meyer had abandoned this book someone sent me the leaked draft to read. I loved the draft, it was everything I had hoped it would be and more.
So I started this book in a very familiar place, it called up memories of the draft, the “Twilight” book, and the movie. I did not need nor did I want to revisit the saga to get back into it. This book was an easy entertaining read, kind of blast from the past. But I have to admit…it is a long ass book. I don’t know if it’s because of the movie but I would often remember my place in the overall story, think I’m close to the end but then a quick page check would let me know that I’m barely halfway through. Despite my perceived length of the book, and the amount of internal dialogue in it, it’s not a boring book.
Midnight Sun is chuck full of additional information and tidbits about Edward, the Cullens, and the Twilight Saga in general but it does make Edward look creepier than he did in the first book and movie. We had shades of it before but here it’s full on stalker.
