  • Did not disappoint!

    By madewellmom
    Thank you Stephanie for finishing this. I was furious when you were betrayed and hurt. I waited until you had decided not to contribute and you released your unedited version to read the beginning all those years ago and it was my now 14 year old daughter who told me that this was coming. (She has read my copies of the saga recently). Like the others, I could not put it down for long, great job! Cori in Waco, TX

  • I can’t say I didn’t like it.

    When I first began to read the Twilight saga I was 12 years old. Now of course my adolescent-self did not realize how strange the romantic realtionship between an introverted 17 year old girl and a 108 year old self-loathing killer was, but the gloomy love story always intrigued me and most likely shaped my developing style throughout my teenage years. Even though I knew the story I still found myself rapidly consuming this book. Can Edwards self-hatred get tiresome? Yes. Are a considerable amount of his actions argueably creepy and obsessive? Yes. Do Bella and Edward dive into this romantic relationship at a rate that comes off as immature? Yes. But all in all, if you look at these characters as teenagers experiencing first love the actions seem to be less off-putting and more endearing. Not to mention how this book allows the reader to mindread with Edward which I thought was pretty cool. So, if you grew up reading the twilight saga and some part of your childhood self still loves the world Stephenie Meyer created, I’d say you’d most likely enjoy this book. Even though the chances of more books in Edward's perspective are slim, I would love to see them!
  • A Perfect Sequel

    By 2007Sing
    I’ve gotta say, I didn’t expect this book to be good. I didn’t think that anymore could be added to the Twilight series without just being a run-on, but this book answered so many questions. Plus, all the times you wondered “what is Edward thinking?”, now you know. I hope that she does this for the rest of the series, and no offense to any hard-core Bella fans, but I liked Edwards story better. I felt it was more thought out, and that we really felt just how much pain Edward was in every day. This book definitely was a good purchase, and an even better read.

    By Game-ination
    Edward has a fast-paced mind. His world is action-packed and suspenseful while he manages to keep a human pace for Bella.

    Great. I enjoyed hearing Edward’s side of this story so much. Now I hope she does the rest of the twilight series. 😍😍😍
  • Good

    By Tlou great
    The book was good. I’ve always wanted to know Edwards thoughts. I feel like we learned more hearing both sides of the story. My only criticism is that his thoughts often lead to very long drawn out stories. Some are useful for the storyline — some not so much in this moment
  • Absolutely love this book!

    By Nellybelly61008
    I love this book. Once I started I couldn’t put it down. I really hope there are more sequels from edwards view to go along side the rest of the twilight series.
