    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 all.I know what you are probably doing Right now, you may have your head cocked to the side with your eyes squinted, wondering if you read that last part correctly I will repeat I was entertained First, let me clear the air I 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 all.I know what you are probably doing Right now, you may have your head cocked to the side with your eyes squinted, 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 cells.Manic Depressed, murderous vamp with feelings Like 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 quickly 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 insigh Are you done Why had she come hereSometimes 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 denialRubs 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 hardEvil crackle YessssI ll get those little blue smurfs I ll sneak into their village while they sleep and boil them alive Won t we Azraelview spoiler Hmmmwhat a weird coincidence I found a pic of that on Google Oh, fangirls Still feel like swooning now hide spoiler Okay, now imagine Eddie just like that while he says, She would go home to an empty house Police Chief Swan worked a full day I knew his house, as I knew every house in the tiny town His home was nestled right up against thick woods, with no close neighbors Even if she had time to scream, which she would not, there would be no one to hear. Conniving little bastard, isn t he _ Of course, then he runs off to Alaska and throws himself one hell of a pity party Then, he goes back to Forks and falls head over heels in love with the most mouthwatering beautiful selflessINSANEgirl This is how I envisioned Edward for most of the partial draft wink book sigh Eddie, Eddie, Eddie You need help, son And there is also another human who had the misfortune to make Edward s personal hit list Mike I actually felt sorry for the douche bag in Midnight Sun If Edward wasn t thinking about eating Bella, gently caressing her lips LOL, who does that , or how she looked in that damn blue blouse, he was thinking of annihilating the obnoxious boy Oddly enough, that too, had me LOL ing I know, I know I m a strange one Heh And when he said,I wasn t going to stand around arguing with the wretch,I fell out LOL.He creeped, He perved, He stalked The creepiest thing, yet hilarious to me, about Midnight Sun is when Edward watches Bella sleep I was repulsed by myself as I watched her toss again How was I any better than some sick peeping tomLMAO, you fucking aren t This book is a Stalker s Handbook In five easy steps you can become the best stalker eva Step 1 Wait until you beloved and her loved ones are fast asleep It would be uncool to be found snooping around your one true love s house during some ungodly hour This is especially important if there is a loaded weapon on the premises Step 2 The window or entry of your liking may creak Don t forget to bring along a can of oil This is imperative to your stalking success You must be unseen and unheard Like a ninjaa really creepy ninja.Step 3 Watch your honey bunny sleep Maybe she s dreaming of you Stay awake, lest you miss the action For maximum effectiveness drink a 5 hour energy drink By all means, snoop around her room This is your show You run this Step 4 Leave before the stalkee awakens I can t even begin to tell you how awkward it would be if you are discovered Step 5 Congrats You have done it You ve stalked your soul mate Now repeat these five steps again and again to receive your Jedi Master level of stalking badge Edward loses his mind and everybody knows it The star of this book for me was Emmett He always said what everyone else was thinking The voice of reason, if you willKid s lost his mind Lost his mind, poor kid This is getting weird You sound like a crazy person, do you know that Exactly like a crazy person You re patheticAnd my favorite part is when Charlotte and Peter Jasper s vamp friends come to visit and Edward is there in a corner looking crazy again.And they all sort of stare at him, yet Emmett sums it up perfectly,MadmanOh and I can t write a Twilight review without throwing in a few hits at Bella I just love it how Edward knows she has got to be crazy, but still wants to be with her Maybe he finds it endearing like her inability to stand on her own two feet with out her face kissing the pavement shrugs I really don t know what goes on inside the head of Edward There is one part where he sits down and questions her sanity He even goes as far to think about having her institutionalizedHow was I supposed to protect someone sososo determined to be unprotectedShe possesses zero self preservation skills Give up, Ed She was impossible. Well, I won t say it I effin told you so I started to wonder if she was entirely stable. You re just starting view spoiler hide spoiler I supposed that I could arrange for her to receive the best care available Carlisle would have the connections to find her the most skilled doctors, the most talented therapists Perhaps something could be done to fix whatever it was that was wrong with her, what ever it was that made her content to sit beside a vampire with her heart beating calmly and steadily I would watch over the facility, naturally, and visit as often as I was allowed I now truly believe both of these clowns are meant for each other Crazy is as crazy does Even though I may have liked Twilight and Eclipse at one point, I feel the same way I felt about Midnight Sun the first time I read it, Is this a parody This can t possibly be legit It is Bahahahaha Somehow that just adds another layer of LOL ing If you are looking for quality YA literature, this ain t it folks Run away If and when this book is ever finished and released, it will only be good for one thing The lolzNext up is Eclipse, but in case you missed it My Twilight review and My New Moon review.And in case you are wondering why I m re reading the series, stop on over to check out Project Hindsight at my blog Cuddlebuggery Book Blog Follow if you like Yes, that was me shamelessly promoting myself Fin BONUS Can you guess my favorite line from Mike view spoiler That pic is so creepyit s perfecthide spoiler

    OH MY DEAR SWEET.I 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 ma OH MY DEAR SWEET.I 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

    This is a yet to be completed partial draft of a novel portraying Twilight from Edward s perspective I have readlike 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 bon This is a yet to be completed partial draft of a novel portraying Twilight from Edward s perspective I have readlike 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 actua 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 thetormented 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 beBut, enter Bella Swan who, without trying, awakened his shut down heart and gave them both something to live for.In 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 me.I ve since moved away from YA novels and on toadult themed PNR Vampire 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 littleinformation on the Cullens, but any character development Rosalie especially that may have happened in the first four books is forgotten 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 littleinformation 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 equally 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 nooky.Same 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 it.My undying gratitude to whomever leaked the manuscript.Edit 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 Also.why 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 dogma.There s muchMormon 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 Sues.And 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 U 111or 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 quality and merit of this series So try to be a grownup about other people s opinions differing from yours Read and move on

    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 evencreepy from his own point of view Spying on her while she s sleeping and reading and who knows what else.if 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 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 evencreepy from his own point of view Spying on her while she s sleeping and reading and who knows what else.if 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 sleep.The 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 killing eating 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 all.Also, 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 otherwise.I 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 Multi one 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.
