Review Quotes



[Midnight Sun] is more complex, more sophisticated and less innocent than Twilight. Although it was Bella's story that launched more than a decade's worth of young adult sci-fi and dystopian heroines, it turns out the narrative power -- and compelling internal drama -- was on Edward's side all along.--Time

For ardent fans of the star-crossed couple, [Midnight Sun] offers a more richly detailed view of Forks, Wash., and its inhabitants, undead and otherwise.--The New York Times

So, will team Edward be happy with this book?... Absolutely. Meyer wrote with her biggest fans in mind, dedicating the book to them, and plunging into the mind of Washington state's most complicated teenage vampire as he falls for a woman who is more determined than we've given her credit for.--The Washington Post

Stephenie Meyer's Midnight Sun brings about a long-awaited consummation. It's not a climactic moment between teenager Bella Swan and the gorgeous vampire Edward Cullen but a consummation that reconnects Ms. Meyer with her vast and hungry audience.... Will gratify devotees.--The Wall Street Journal

The new book does, however, unexpectedly and rather wonderfully, suggest that the Bella-Edward relationship was never the central love affair of the Twilight series. Humans and vampires may gaze meaningfully into each other's eyes, but the true passion in the books is Meyer's love for her readers -- and their love for her.--NBC News

Q: Does Midnight Sun have any content that is inappropriate for a younger reader?

submitted by TJ - 2 years ago
  • A: There will be descriptions of violence, so not for under 13 years old, I'd say.

    submitted by - 2 years ago
  • A: Midnight Sun is an exact retelling of Twilight but from Edward's perspective. Pretty much everything that happened from Bella's point of view was PG, but since it is in Edward's POV and we don't know what happened 100% from his side of the story, can't really say unless someone who's bought this book and read it answers this.

submitted by byron b - 2 years ago

MillieB - 1 year ago, Verified purchaser
Were the original books so negative and degrading towards Bella? Edward is a Narcissist in this - determined to make himself and everyone around him miserable, including the reader. Such a drag to pull yourself through this book. He complains when Bella wears something he considers bulky and ugly, is controlling, manipulative, and constantly tells her she's wrong, backwards, and messed up in the head. It's truly an abusive mind game. So sad and unhealthy if this is what we all loved as teenagers. I wanted to love this book and read it as a romance as the other reviewers did, but as an adult in 2021, the content of Midnight Sun perpetuates outdated norms that may influence our teenagers perception of what types of behaviors are acceptable in a relationship. I get that this is meant to be a dark Vampire romance, but there are other ways to achieve this. Normalizing the objectification and degradation of Bella and minimizing her to someone who is constantly "wrong in the head" or "not wearing the right thing" is a completely confounding choice and just feels gross in 2021.

Loved it. Everything I hoped it would be. It is very long. But if you liked Twilight you have to read it. I remember reading and loving Twilight in high school (I’m 30 now) and it was like a trip down memory lane. So glad this finally came out.

I’ve followed the Twilight Saga since the movie debuted 2008. I liked how the author gives you a very deep look into Edward Cullen, but it may not be everyone’s cup of tea. It is VERY romantic, it’s almost nauseating.

I enjoyed the book, as I have the others. Was a good read. But the binding of the book crack before I was even half done. I am very careful with my books as I like to keep them in good condition. Was very disappointed. If they all are going to break, just borrow it from a library.
