At last, readers can experience Edward's version in the companion novel, Midnight Sun. This unforgettable tale as told through Edward's eyes takes on a new and decidedly dark twist. Meeting Bella is both the most unnerving and intriguing event he has experienced in all his years as a vampire. As we learn more fascinating details about Edward's past and the complexity of his inner thoughts, we understand why this is the defining struggle of his life. How can he justify following his heart if it means leading Bella into danger? In Midnight Sun, Stephenie Meyer transports us back to a world that has captivated millions of readers and brings us an epic novel about the profound pleasures and devastating consequences of immortal love.… (més)

Quando penso a questo libro mi torna subito in mente il motivetto "Nostalgia, nostalgia canaglia che ti prende proprio quando non vuoi 🎵" perchè si... Sarebbe ipocrita non ammettere che mi manca un sacco l'atmosfera e la spensieratezza dei bei vecchi tempi. Dei pomeriggi trascorsi in compagnia delle amiche del liceo a sbavare su Edward, a dividerci in Team Black e Team Cullen, a rivedere i film e rileggere i libri sospirando come tredicenne in calore. Mi mancano un sacco quei tempi e quella spensieratezza, quelle emozioni così forti. Quei pensieri così "ridicoli" con il senno di poi. La saga di Twilight è stata un'amica per buona parte del liceo, mi ha permesso di conoscere quella che per me è quasi una sorella e come non resistere a quel richiamo? Come non voler rivivere quelle emozioni? Come non procurarmi una copia cartacea di Midnight Sun e come non coinvolgere suddetta amica per una bella lettura di coppia?! Con l'aiuto della preziosa tecnologia, anche se non possiamo più vederci così spesso, siamo riuscite a rivivere la magia di Twilight e... Mi sono commossa come una bimba!
Ho aspettato un sacco il libro su Edward, tutte in classe volevamo capire cosa pensasse quel vampiro tenebroso e cavaliere e nonostante gli anni siano passati... Mi sono sentita proprio come allora. Questo libro sicuramente avrà deluso la maggior parte del Fandom. Edward appare molto meno "senza macchia e sbrilluccicoso" di quanto ci si potrebbe aspettare eppure... Contro ogni pronostico... Mi è piaciuto molto. Sarà la nostalgia, sarà il ridere e scherzare (anche se a distanza) in compagnia, sarà che sotto sotto quella bimba innamorata dei Cullen vive ancora, sogna e prega in un nuovo libro (su Nessie e Jake) fatto sta che... Mi sono divertita un sacco. Edward è un pazzo, è pieno di casini ed è ancora più trash e disagiato di Bella eppure nel suo caos è irresistibile proprio come i vecchi tempi. Vederlo impazzire per il nulla e comportarsi in modo ridicolo, vederlo pianificare stragi di massa, stalkerare la "fidanzata", uccidere durante la notte pericolosi ragni in agguato nelle tenebre e correre al salvataggio della sua amata fanciulla mettendosi per la strada a rubare auto e moto alla GTA.... mi ha fatto morire dal ridere. Questo libro per i non fan è ridicolo, noioso, pieno di clichè e disagio ma per chi ha respirato Twilight, per chi ha sognato quel mondo è... Magia! Tutto è magico. Ho riso, ho urlato, mi sono messa le mani tra i capelli, ho insultato Edward e le sue manie da maniaco pazzo, ho provato tantissime emozioni e mi sono sentita un po' bimba. Non mi sento di consigliarlo non essendo un libro bello ma... Se come me sentite il peso della nostalgia... Non posso che consigliarvi di riprendere sotto braccio le vostre amiche e rilanciarvi nel delirante mondo dei Cullen rivivendo i bei momenti ormai passati. Dopo aver aspettato secoli mi sento soddisfatta. Penso sia stata la ventata d'aria fresca di cui avevo bisogno e a questo punto non posso che non provare la voglia di rileggere per intero la saga. Nonostante il libro sia orrendo una piccola parte di me l'ha amato, la Giada del passato lo ha già messo nella sua Top 5 e non posso non sperare di leggere altro! Spero che l'autrice dopo tutti questi anni si decida a donare a Renesme e Jacob il libro e l'happy ending di cui tanto hanno bisogno. Da amante di Jacob Black spero che presto sia il suo turno e di poter così chiudere il cerchio di questa serie :) nel frattempo...w i ricordi. W i vampiri pazzi e sbrilluccicosi e... w il trash 😂❤️ ( )

Alright alright alright. I did it. I read it.
And whew. Do I have mixed feelings.
It was so hard for me to rate this book as there are many layers of emotions involved with it. I read the original series back in middle school so a part of me will always hold a fondness for this series in my heart. However, there are also so many problematic aspects to these books that I’m not going to get into as they have already been said many times by people far more eloquent than I. With that it’s hard to rate this book solely for itself without these aspects influencing it.

Some positives:
-The writing itself has grown and improved as one would expect over a fifteen year time span.
-Many of the characters were given so much more depth. I really did enjoy getting to expand on the Cullen’s relationships. Alice and Emmett remain my favorites.
-Bella actually seems like a more evolved character in this version. She didn’t come across as quite as flat (though she is still definitely a major Mary Sue/self insert)
-In general I loved the expansion of many scenes and how we got many more of the in between moments that were lost in Bella’s narrative

Some negatives:
-Edward kind of came off as even more stalkerish in some aspects? Like we already knew that he watched her sleep and followed her a few times but now you actually saw through his eyes just HOW MANY times he did it. Like was it necessary for him to watch her read outside her house? To follow her scent out to the woods after she’d gone for a walk? And to see him rationalizing it in his mind was kind of weird not gonna lie.
-There. Were. So. Many. Angsty. Monologues. Despite that I’ve got to say my favorite was definitely when Edward compared himself to Tyler and feared that he might be more Bella’s type because Edward could never be “that normal”. Like that’s peak comedy right there.
-While I appreciate the rarity of a character who has brown eyes (don’t tell me you haven’t noticed authors avoidance of characters with brown eyes) I was about sick of reading “her wide chocolate brown eyes”. Please please please. I don’t need to be reminded of her eye color every single page. I promise I have a good memory.
-There were a few things that felt a little unnecessary? Like that moment involving Edward helping set Angela and Ben up? That just didn’t make much sense to me as why that was included.

Overall: At the end of the day this is still Twilight. It is imperfect and has many flaws. However you can still enjoy a story despite its faults. For anyone who was a fan of Twilight it is an obvious must read. Personally I’m rating it 3 stars because it’s still a mess but I still find aspects enjoyable and that’s just that. ( )

Disappointing. I knew going into this that there wouldn’t be a ton of new content, still I’d hoped it would veer from the Twilight template a little more than it did and reshape it enough to actually feel like Edward’s point of view of his own life rather than his point of view of Bella’s life.

I get that certain moments did need to be here to still tell the story of Twilight, however, the scenes where Edward watches Bella sleep as well as the many scenes Edward wasn’t even technically in that could only be included here in his POV because of his ability to “eavesdrop” (Bella shopping, Bella in classes, etc.), couldn’t those have been replaced with a few more new scenes where Edward would have been an actual active participant? Like why not show more of his time in Alaska (only one scene yet he was there for a week!) or how about showing more of the dynamics in the Cullen household, showing what else was going on in their lives aside from Edward’s romance, or showing more of this vampire’s everyday struggles in navigating small town life and high school and sunlight? If you go by Midnight Sun, Edward occupies most of his time by listening in on Bella’s conversations, which I mean, a) what on earth did he do with himself in the decades before she came into his life and b) I never thought I would say this about a character I loved, but all that listening in and not doing anything made Edward come across as exceedingly dull.

With a few exceptions, Midnight Sun mostly consists of cutting Bella’s thoughts out of the manuscript and pasting in Edward’s over top of them rather than truly digging in and transforming the story to reflect Edward’s Twilight experience. To make matters worse, Edward’s thoughts were repetitive to the point of tedious (he’s a monster, she’s fragile, he doesn’t want her to be a vampire) and those repetitive thoughts weren’t really anything that couldn’t already have been discerned in reading the original Twilight.

I understand that publishing is a business, I don’t begrudge anyone’s desire to make money or profit off of my nostalgia, however, I do begrudge it when I buy something that feels as though almost no work went into it, the bare minimum amount of changes were made to pass this off as a different book from Twilight. Much like the gender-flipped version of Twilight, Edward’s version of Twilight conceptually seemed like it could be interesting but in execution it didn’t feel like much creative energy or effort was spent on this book.

I read all of the Twilight books many years ago so I thought I’d give a new addition to the series a try. At first, I was worried I would be bored with the story since it’s a retelling of what I already know but through Edward’s eyes. I was pleasantly surprised though! The story was very interesting to hear from the perspective of Edward, especially since we never really get to see what he’s thinking or how he’s feeling much in the series. It was fun to see what Edward thought of his fellow “classmates” at school, his family, Jacob, and of course Bella. This is an entertaining and romantic read for older teens or adults.

This book is dedicated to all the readers who have been such a happy part of my life for the last fifteen years. When we first met, many of you were young teenagers with bright, beautiful eyes full of dreams for the future. I hope that in the years that have passed, you've all found your dreams and that the reality of them was even better than you'd hoped.
