Midnight Sun is Twilight told from Edward’s point of view. This book is exactly as advertised, the exact same story from Edward’s first-person point of view. I read all of the Twilight novels when they were first out and loved them for entertaining escapism reading. I was looking forward to reading another book in the saga.
I found it slow reading. It was interesting at times, but as you knew everything that would happen, it was not very exciting. I’ll admit, I made it about 350 pages in and then realized I really didn’t care to read the rest and wanted to move on to a different book, so I skimmed to the end and moved on. I was hoping for more differences in the story, especially more background on Edward’s life before Bella. It did give insight on what intrigued Edward about Bella. I loved when Bella talked about her favorite books as they pretty much match what I like to read.
“Mostly I dream about being with you forever.”
Overall, Midnight Sun was as advertised, a retelling of Twilight from Edward's point of view. I didn’t find it to be that exciting of a book.
