But when I clicked the link to read the rough draft it would come up blank. I tried over and over again and still nothing. It drove me crazy and what was only one day felt like forever.
Anyways when I finally did get to read it it blew me away. It was like reading a whole different book (I don't know if that makes sense). Even though I would catch myself tying in what would be going on in Twilight it still felt like I was reading a whole new story. I can't believe what really went on in Edward's head! Looking back at Twilight it feels like I was clueless about Edward's inner thoughts. Its so crazy that he had the same feelings and anxieties as Bell, like when ever they were apart and stuff like that. As for the whole watching over her while she slept, I assumed (like so many others) that he just watched her from her window. I never would have thought that he actually went in her room! There are so many things like that that if it weren't for Midnight Sun we would have never known.
I'm actually re-reading Twilight right now and I just got to the part after Bella finds out that Edward is a vampire from Jacob. And after reading the partial draft of Midnight Sun I laughed out loud at the part where Bella opens her bedroom window for the first time and makes a comment on how smoothly it opens even though its been ages since the last time someone opened it. Hopefully Stephenie finishes the book, I know its not gonna happen any time soon but so long as she does it will make me the happiest person ever.
I think that is she finishes this book it will make her fans the HAPPIEST people in the universe! I agree that reading the book from Edward's perspective is a huge difference from Bella's point of view. I think he's a bit mean when he keeps stating that Bella may be a bit unstable and that maybe she should be locked up in an institution. A bit funny when he says that even if she locked up-he'll go visit her everyday.
