So I read this book recently “Midnight Sun” by Stephenie Meyer. It is a companion novel to the book “Twilight”. The Twilight book came in 2005, in which the whole story was narrated by the female protagonist Bella. It was Bella’s side of the story with her perspective about her love story showing her compassion for Edward even though he is a vampire. But in the entire series, we never got to know Edwards thought or his feelings about being in love with a human.
Well people who loved the Twilight series, for them this book is a treat to sink their teeth into. You are going to know Edward’s struggle about his feelings for Bella while his thirst is overpowering his senses. How he falls in love with a human being when all his senses are pushing him to just quench his thirst for blood? Well, this book is going to tell you all about it. Being a vampire, Edward is also gifted with the power of reading people’s mind and hearing everything that is going on in their head. And also he is much faster than other vampires. Well, the twist is he can’t read only one particular human’s mind and obviously it’s Bella. These things are already told in the book Twilight. But in Midnight Sun you will get to know how this particular twist makes Edward curious about the girl he wants to kill the most in the entire world. How his curiosity overpowers his normal senses and reflexes and while he tries to figure this girl out he falls in love with her.
It’s quite funny and romantic, the way Edward tries to figure out Bella by just talking to her and asking her about her favorite books, movies, food, color etc. Well, normal human beings get to know each other the same way, while they make guess and make mental judgements. But being a vampire with the ability to read minds, trying to figure out a human without this ability is very irritating for him.
In this book, you will also get to know more about Edward’s family. You will get to know in detail about Edward’s foster parents and foster brother and sister. And how they react to the addition of Bella into their life.
People who haven’t read the Twilight series yet, even they can also start with this book and if you like the story then you are definitely going to read the Twilight series as well.
