, so true!

I completely agree. Reading from Edward's perspective gives a whole new, more insightful view point and it captivates the reader so much more. There were so many times that I was caught off guard because I was so sure Bella was right on her assessment on Edward and then BOOM! We find out she couldn't be farther off mark[Twilight
was right next to me at ALL times for reference
]. His mind works in strange
For me, the one thing that took me by complete surprise and I would never have guessed was Edward's insecurity. We knew he thought of himself as a monster, but it was more "I'm condemned to this inhuman, half-life and that's what makes me a monster." His real insecurites spell from so much deeper than that. He couldn't even fathom that Bella's heartrate sped up because she found him attractive! Literally, he had no idea just how into him Bella was. So sure the touch of his skin would repulse her
. It made me want to cry. It's also really something to see where his negativety and pessimism comes from. Also, why he was able to leave in New Moon
. He loved her enough[aw!]! On so many levels, he's selfish, and so many others the most unselfish being there could be.
Another thing I wasn't expecting was his humour. Truly, Edward Cullen is a funny, HILARIOUS vampire-man. His mind, so dark and brooding, is quite possibly the most entertaining place to be. He's sarcastic! Something that wasn't to be expected. He comes up with the quickest retorts, but half the time keeps them to himself. He's just so...amusing
! I LOVE LOVE LOVE when he's questioning Bella's sanity and contemplating taking her to a mental hospital. That's just beyond funny.
. He's crazy! Not insane-crazy, but obsessive crazy. We knew Bella was, but Edward is on a completely different level. I always thought when he watched her sleep(before she knew about it) that he simply watched her from her window. I didn't imagine he actually sat down in
the room AND explored the house! On a side note, it's quite nice to be right that he was the one watching Bella when she woke up from her afternoon nap in her backyard. The bottlecap was another thing I found humourus. At first I thought..."creepy" but then it really was just sweet. Strange, but sweet.
The composition of Bella's lullaby....just beautiful
