    Could that name have been more irritating???

    I liked Midnight Sun and agree that it made Edward a much more interesting character. Still, he is quite controlling, he acts like Bella is going to trip over her own foot and impale herself on a stick if he's not there all of the time. I also found it a little disturbing that he would watch her sleep, uninvited. I think the first time I read it I was swept away in the romance of it all. then I started thinking how really psychotic that is. I dislike the way he is so controlling and she is so weak.

    I think that part of the thing about Edward being scared that Bella is going to kill herself is because of the theme of destiny running through the books. Bella jokes that she was fated to be squished by Tyler's car in Twilight, and i think that thought freaked Edward out once he realised he was in love with her.

    I also reckon that Midnight Sun is Stephenie Meyer's best work because it's her most recent, she's very much a novice writer and she's improving her game. Still. Renesmee. Wtf. I did like the Loch Ness Monster references, but that's to be expected

    I finished it! Now I'm on to New Moon. I want to read what ya'll have to say about Twilight in this thread, but I'm scared of spoilers.

    I want Edward or someone to go ahead and "change" stupid Bella. Maybe then she'll be more interesting.

    No New Moon, Eclipse or Breaking Dawn Spoilers In This Post!!

    Weeeell Twilight is the best of the books, it's got the most butterflies-in-stomach moments. I love the part where Edward and Bella are driving back from Port Angeles and they're talking over Edward's...condition. Bella is so freakishly OK with it that Edward is being surprised left right and centre, and that's something he's reeeally not used to. The meadow scene is just magic, I don't think I breathed at all the first time I read it!

    Then when Bella makes a run for it to go to James to save her mother, it's really Bella's finest moment up to that point. You see just how selfless and loving she is, because even though she's crapping herself she still goes through with it to save those she loves.

    And -of course- falling in love with Edward Cullen for the first time was awesome

    I didn't really get into it until the whole tracker part. Nothing really happened up until then. It was really slow. I did like it though. Bella kinda sucks, but I like the Cullens.

    Ohh no I think Alice is still awesome in Breaking Dawn. The rest of them just should have had more faith.

    ***Spoilers**** Well what Alice did in Breaking Dawn was to help the family. She didn't really run away. She went to get help. *** End of spoilers.
