What is this... I know it translates to 'Edward at the first glance' and it says something about being in Edward POV but I've never herd of it?
His face was almost supernatural already but his view was stechend and hasserfullt.
The first encounter between Bella and Edward brings to the strong shivering as the cold wind. But what Edward thinks and feels when he Bella provides for the first time?
The first encounter between Bella and Edward - this time from Edwards perspective.
I tried using google language to translate it.
So is this just the first chapter of Midnight Sun...but in book-form and in German? Does anyone know? I've never heard of this.
Yes, this is the first chapter of "Midnight Sun" as a German hardcover. You cannot buy this little book in bookstores. I guess the publishers printed this version for a book-fair.
Yeeeeeesh...I realiy hate that stupid waiting..its really unfair!first I thoght reading TWILIGHT is enogh,but once I began reading this one...really intriguing. MS.Meyer has done a great job on it.
I'm hangging here, stephanie..
Midnight Sun, Edward's point of view of twilight, won't be coming out anymore
due to a 12 chapter leak. Stephanie Meyer has posted the first 12 chapters on her
website (www. Stephanie Meyer.com) for those who want to read it.
I read that it was temporarily postponed, but that Stephanie Meyer will work on it when she feels "alone with it".
I don't want to read it if the book isn't going to be published. I understand that Meyer's is upset about the leak, I would be too. But why should the rest of us have to suffer for it. Who wants to read the first 12 chapters of a book and then stop?
I'm so sad that shes not writing it anymore :(
i hope that she has some other great plot coming up since shes not writing midnight sun already!”
I read the 12 chapters and thought they were really really good. It sheds such a different light on the whole story. I wish it didnt leak and she would have finished writing, but I do see why she isnt going to.
YOU READ THE 12 CHAPTERS OF MIDNIGHT SUN??? WHERE??
I HOPE SHE GETS OVER IT AND THINKS OF HER FANS... I LOVE HER WRITING SKILLS
I'm not going to read this until it is published. I would feel like I was betraying Stephanie Meyer.
I absoulutley agree. I think it is such an abuse of her rights that it has been leaked in such an unfinished format. I hope she has the heart to even continue with the story!
i couldn't agree more-though i'm totally anxious, i just can't make myself read it.
YAY you I feel the same exact way and am really angry at the people who are reading it!!!
i said the same thing, then i noticed that she posted it on her official website herself, so i couldnt resist. i wouldnt have gone to look for it though.
me too, like i started it, and i couldn't continue.
it just made me feel really weird, not having the book in my hands.
it felt really bad and illegal. haha.
I read the portion up on Stephanie Meyer's website. I loved what was there so far. I really hope she gets it published soon!
I love this book! I hope Stephenie Meyer fnishes it. It would be rather silly if she doesn't. I mean, boohoo. It was leaked on the web. Get over it Stephenie and think of someone other than yourself!
I have to say that I really like Edward's view of the story. I always thought he was an over-protective old fool, especically in the later books, but Midnight Sun made me see his side of things better. I still think he's over protective and needs to take a chill pill, but I understand it just a little bit more.
I do wish that Stephenie would publish it and just get over the leak. Books are leaked all the time and the writers are some how able to get over it.
But I do think that courtney was a little harsh. Yes, Stephenie may seem to be thinking only of herself, but writers are always better when they write for themselves, not for the fans. When writing strictly for the fans and fame, the stories, more othen than not, are really lame.
You And Me Both
I get you want to read it, get your Twilight fix, but if you have had your car broken into, or something of yours stolen you might get how she feels. I get you are a loyal fan, but if she keeps writing when all she feels is anger, sadness, or any other emotion than what Twilight needs that book is going to suck big! Giver her some time to cool down and boohoo to you, get over yourself!
IS SHE REALLY NOT GOING TO CONTINUE THE LAST BOOK "MIDNIGHT SUN" OVER SOME IDIOT ..WHAT ABOUT HER FANS? SHES A WRITER... WHERE IS HER LOYALTY TO US...:(
I totally agree. I think it is so stupid. It was like when one bad thing happended she just gave up. And she just left her fans hanging and hungry for more!!!! It is totally unfair!
Yeah but think bout it from her point of view, she has worked her butt of 2 give us another book and some idiot ruins it by spreading it all, u would b pissed of 2!!!!!! so give her a chance 2 get back in the right head space so she can give us the best book she can. I personally would rather wait 4 an extra year or so and get another great book!!!!!
Okay, folks, do you honestly believe that if Meyer had a contract for another Twilight saga book with Little, Brown and Co. that they would let her out of it without serious repercussions with the way the publishing industry is right now? Let me spell it out for you: the big publishers are collapsing. I highly doubt she ever meant to publish Midnight Sun, or if she did, it will magically appear around the time the New Moon movie comes out. I liked Midnight Sun as much as anyone, but I can't help thinking that the little scandal was part publicity stunt to generate interest in the author, the series, and the movie.
well what she has done is awesome! I like it even better then twilight. I think it is really cool how she puts it in Edwards point of view. It really makes you rethink the whole twilight saga. Now I want to know Edwards take on all of the books!
I have to admit that I want Stephenie to wrote all the books form Edward's POV. I read the couple of chapters prior to reading Breaking Dawn and several time through Breaking Dawn, I couldn't help but to think "what is Edward thinking here?". I doubt that she will continue but we can always hope that she would keep it secret and publish all of the Twilight series through Edward's POV!
i agree with the two of you. reading it in Edwards's point of view will be more fun, to know the story in both POVs of Edward and Bella
Join the club.After reading it, I'm literally dying to know what Edward is thinking anytime he is mentioned in any of the books- and he is mentioned all the time- one can hardly guess how tormenting it is
It is reallly descriptive. Edward sees things differently than Bella. He actually sees things better and to me that is what makes it so cool to read.
She has finished it and showed it to her mother already and is hoping it turns up on shelfs soon
OMG THATS SO AWSOME WHEN YOU FIND THE DATE TELL ME ......lol bye!
wow!!! that's very very good news!! i really hope it turns up on the shelves soon :D
how do you know that? on her official page it still says "on hold indefinitely"
omg really... how do you no this??
How do you really know this because she would say something on her website and plus it could be just a rumour.
Believe me, you'd know if she'd turned the book over to her publisher. They'd want to start generating interest in consumers as soon as possible. The Twilight saga is such a cash cow for the Little, Brown and Co., and with the way the publishing industry is foundering at the moment, they wouldn't pass up an opportunity to expand their market with a new book from the hot vampire's perspective.
Thats a tad too good to believe. Its a rumor. We (the fans) are still being punished for someone leaking the darn biik. So...yeh. Unlikely. They've already posted the movie dates AND I HAVEN'T SEEN ONE THING ABOUT Midnight Sun which KINDA TICKS ME OFF. WHY ARE WE ON PUNISHMENT FOR SOMETHING WE DIDN'T DO !!??!! Can you say overreaction?
Are you suggesting they make a Midnight Sun movie? It would be "Twilight" with a few different scenes! What a waste. Furthermore, you aren't being punished, and Stephenie Meyer owes absolutely nothing to the fans. She's given us three mediocre books, one really bad book, and a half-way decent, FREE draft. Again, bear in mind that the half book we have of Midnight Sun is LEGAL and FREE.
Its not finished but i have read the first twelve chapters do you think she will finish it?
I truly hope (with all my heart) that she does.It seems she is pretty upset about half the manuscript leaking out.
She quoted on her website on August 28,2008," So where does this leave Midnight Sun? My first feeling was that there was no way to continue. Writing isn't like math; in math, two plus two always equals four no matter what your mood is like. With writing, the way you feel changes everything. If I tried to write Midnight Sun now, in my current frame of mind, James would probably win and all the Cullens would die, which wouldn't dovetail too well with the original story. In any case, I feel too sad about what has happened to continue working on Midnight Sun, and so it is on hold indefinitely."
I was really heartbroken to read this. However, she hasn't absolutely refused to continue it and it has been around 6 months since this post. So there is hope after all
how do u get ahold of this book if its unfinished
It's on Stephenie Meyer's website. She originally posted the first chapter as a teaser but after a "scandal" (right...) she posted the first half of the book or so.
Heres the link: http://www.stepheniemeyer.com/pdf/midnightsun_partial_draft4.pdf It's only about half of Twilight told in Edward's point of view
you can google it and than download the copy if you rlly want to.
The first like 12 chapters are on the authors website.
You read the unfinished version on her website =P
just follow this link
what site can i read this on? is it like the stephanie meyer site?? please tell me i have to read it!!!!!
You can read it at www.stepheniemeyer.com. Then you just look around that website and you should find it. You have to read it, it's AMAZING! i really hope she finishes it.
Go to stephaniemeyer .com If that doesn't work look up stephanie meyer on google and click on the official website. After that click on the books tab. Then click on midnight sun and scroll til you reach the draft link
Just make sure you spell her name correctly when you go looking for the draft...
its legally recomended by meyer herself to read it as well she had displayed it in her ebook session
this is direct link ....follow it....enjoy
go to scribd.com
If it doesnt work, type scribd on google.

I think a copy of the book was circulating through emails
go to stepheniemeyer.com... it's there!
did u read it yet? cuz if u havn't then i can attach u the pdf to an e-mail...let me know if u still want it[3
i would really love to read this book i wish she finish it so it can be published and read by many desprate readers of stephenie meyers ( i love the twilight sage and i wish more to come)
its 12 chapters hav been published....follow above link
You can go to www.stepheniemeyer.com/pdf/midnightsun_partial_draft4.pdf or just www.stepheniemeyer.com When you get there (to the last one) click on Twilight series, choose Midnight Sun, go to the bottom of the page, and click on read partial draft.
I, for one, really hope she decides to publish... one day in the future.
My collection seems incomplete without it.
does any body know when or if shes publishing it?
It's up in the air. She said she put it on hold, and she doesn't know when or if she'll publish it,
if she doesn't want to publish it she could put the rest on her website. I so want to know what he's thinking when he asked bella if she ever met someone she wanted and when said ``not in phoenix``
I want to know what was going though his mind while they were in the meadow, and how he felt when he kissed her for the first time! Please Stephenie Meyer, finish the book soon!!!!!!!
i love it and i want to read the read of it
Seriously Edwrad's version was completely a different experience, i think i enjoyed it better than bella's version though it was only 12 chapters!
I loved how he described tania's desire for him lol
Where/how can I read this?
--I want to know, is she gonna publish it? I am almost afraid to hear his point of view--it will change the way i think of the story...
Its only 12 chapters and you can only find it online. Enjoy :)
i prefer bella's version.edwards more about emotions and feelings.
I loved this version a lot!! Almost better than the original (bella's). Now this book expains a lot of his weird reactions and emotions...
No matter how long he has lived, he is going through the emotions & feelings of love for the first time, so he natural acts like that awkward first love.
This was an awesome book! even if it was only partial. I loved knowing what edward was thinking. i love when he is appalled at the thought of loving bella.
this is just my opinion, but if i was stephenie meyer this is what i would do:
write twilight, new moon, eclipse, and breaking dawn.
then, backtrack. publish midnight sun, and then begin her pov (point of veiw) novels: New Moon in Jacob and Edwards mind, and then eclipse in edward and jacob's mind, and then do breaking dawn in edward's mind, and finally breaking dawn in jacob's mind where bella narrated in the book, and bella's mind where jacob narrated the book. That way the times where we read part bella, then part jacob, then part bella again, there will be instead a reversal and it will go jacob, bella jacob. The timew of Bella's wedding will be from Jacob's pov, the time where Bella is prego will be from her own point of view, and her time as a new vampire will be from jacob's point of view.
That is what I would do too. But I think she would get sick of the books by then.
i agree (w. Tape Abuser) i like the idea of diffrent pov's but i think bu that time id be sick of reading them, even though i love twilight, and strongly think she should finish midnight sun, i think 4 more books would be a little over kill. expecialy since shes done with the series...
When is Stephenie Meyer going to actually add more to the story? I'm really mad! I haven't heard ANYTHING about it!
I think this gonna be one the best books I ever read besides the Twilight saga. It better be good my friend read some of the previews
Wait is this book even out yet? And is it part of the Twilight Series? Because It doesn't say The Twilight Saga above the title like the other books...
I don't know if it's out yet, I would think we would have heard a lot more about it if it was, I've heard you can find it online, but I really want it to be published! I think it's the Twilight series from Edward's perspective...that's about all I know!
It is in Edward's point of view for Twilight so it is just a different version of Twilight. :)
AHHHH! Im so excited :D
i kno its so exciting right!!!!!!!!
Just so everyone knows, if you go to Stephanie Meyer's website there is a link you can click on to read Midnight Sun....can't decide whether I should do it or not...don't want to violate her wishes, but am so excited and want to read it!
I say read it because she has put the project on hold indefinitely. That means she may never write more than what she has given us.
she has put it out there for us to enjoy. she has said that she plans on finishing the book one day but not any time soon.
so is it being published or not? because on her website it says that theres no way shes finishing (and i already read the first half...) but does any one know if shes actualy publishing this?
I read it and it gives quite a bit of insight into Edward and why he is so protective (or overbearing as some would say) of Bella. I do wish she would finish it. I think she probably will at some point, but no time soon.
I loved what i read on her site but I was surprised that Edward Hated her so much in his head! How violent.... but i still want her to finish it before next year
When does the book come out?
it doesn't come out you can get the partial draft off of stephenie's website...it was leaked over the internet and out of frustration she quit writing it because she said she would have done things to the characters she would have regreted.
Stephanie said in an interview that she was over the leak 2 weeks later but she just hasnt gotten into the zone to start back writing it again.
Some of you are getting mad because it hasn't been published yet. I'd like for you to go try to write a book. A book that is well written, a plot that makes a reader keep turning the pages...then see if you are still mad. Writing isn't like reading or watching. It takes time, and when you are on a roll and something gives you writer's block, then you just have to wait it out or you will end up with a pretty crappy story. Be patient. It will come when it comes.
i can't wait ti'll this comes out i luv her
m jus dying to read this one...plz publish it early........
This book will not be published. Go to Stephanie Meyer's Website for full explanation.
should I read this book?
I'm sad the book was so good, stupid the one that put it only, because she say she's not going to finish it TT
omg. i can't wait. ihave read most of it online and its amazing.
Stephanie said she put it on hold indefinetly if she decides to continue to write it she will i she doesnt she doesnt move on with your life and read until she decides what to do
It looks really good, I wish she would write it already!
I read the first chapter of it on her website and it sounds pretty good. One could hope...
There's another document lying there, with 12 chapters. I think it's at the bottom of the page.
I really hope she finishes it soon. I am already starting to lose interest in it. If it takes much longer I will probably be over it and not read it.
Given the reaction I heard in the theater to the Eclipse trailer today, I'd say she's missed her opportunity to get this one out. I doubt she's going to finish it - and if she does, I doubt it's going to be noticed/cared about by the public.
A movie is no match for a book. I loved reading the Twilight saga, but I think the movies are rather mediocre. Couldn't care less about what they do with Bella and Edward on the screen. I just hope Midnight Sun gets published eventually.
I still prefer the first moviie to all of them. I think that was a movie in it's own right, while the second and third are a little more blah. I severely dislike the second one, the music is extremely intrusive.
has anyone read this book? If so id like to know more about it
If you haven't yet, I really reccommend you go to SM's website and read all the extras and outtakes. There are plenty of more material if you miss the Twilight universe and have read everything else. The extras and outtakes are all related to the soecific books and can be found under each book. Sadly, they become increasingly scarse as she becomes a more adept writer. As she says, at first she just wrote but later on she wrote everything with a purpose - so a lot less got cut.
It says by some of the editions, that Christiaan Meyer published the book... Is he the one that leaked it prematurely?
I am so happy this is out! I didn't even realize! YAY!
