Alright, I guess I should start by saying, I'm a little obsessed. I read the half finished manuscript of Midnight Sun twice. What's that you say? "SOMEones has a lot of time on their hands". Well, it's no gluing penny's on a dashboard, but I still had the same feeling of accomplishment when I was done. And although after talking with St. Jenny about it, I do feel a little bad critiquing an unfinished novel. But since I have NOTHING bad to say about it, I will proceed. I loved it. I loved how I got to know the Cullen family better, I liked getting to feel how his family life was. I liked being able to hear what everyone was thinking. I liked getting to know her friends better through their thoughts, and I also liked that I found myself not liking many of her friends. There were a few things that I read in Twilight thinking, "Did I miss something? An inside joke?" And they were all explained in Midnight Sun. I also liked that I no longer wanted Bella to ever be with Jacob, only Edward. Who doesn't want a guy to feel about them like that? Don't you gize all agree? My favorite thing about the book was in one of the last chapters she wrote. He kept going on making comments in his head about the ugly sweater Bella was wearing, like it was helping him to not want to attack her. Like this one: "For a brief fraction of a second, I was overwhelmed by the idea of holding her in my arms at a dance-where she would surely wear something pretty and delicate rather than this hideous sweater." or "I was grateful to the unbecoming sweater that she wore". There was another one too, but I don't have THAT much time, geesh.
Really the only thing I didn't like was that it isn't finished. Hopefully she will finish it, or maybe I could help her out if she needs me to. I'll be waiting and rereading till I hear from her.
