I read the other 4 books and loved them. Stephenie is a brilliant writer!
I did feel "cheated" in one area and I realize this is because the books were written & marketed for a younger audience. What area? To put it boldy, the sexual intimacy, frusteration, etc. that Edward & Bella both must have been experiencing. Yes, it was talked about. But, Stephenie did such a wonderful job with her writing and drawing us into these characters, their minds, thoughts, etc., and it felt like the sexual intimacy was basically just glossed over.
For example: The "morning after" during the honeymoon ~ there are feathers everywhere & the headboard is missing a chunk. I was laughing as I read this, but my mind also went 'and?' as I wished we would've had more details about the experience. It's not just that experience either. I really felt as though the should've been more put into the sexual tension and frusteration that both Edward & Bella were experiencing. Every movie or book you read about vampires is fraught with sexual tension and I feel like that whole thing was kind of brushed aside.
So, my thought. I would love to see Stephenie write all 4 books from Edward's perspective & to write them for adults so that a little more detail can go into this. Am I alone on this? I hope I worded this write, because I don't want it to sound as though I want to see a big smut session.

I really enjoy the series, and cannot wait for the next book to come out, but do not think it's very mature of the author to put out a "leaked partial draft" on her own site, then state that she cannot finish it, because of someone else's actions. Admittedly, this is a YA series, but DA, we're not. (D-dumb) Fine. Get your publicity, then PLEASE JUST FINISH THE DARN BOOK!!! 12 chapters "Leaked" or not, I'll certainly buy the thing in its entirety!!
