Summary from Goodreads:

When Edward Cullen and Bella Swan met in Twilight, an iconic love story was born. But until now, fans have heard only Bella's side of the story. At last, readers can experience Edward's version in the long-awaited companion novel, Midnight Sun.

This unforgettable tale as told through Edward's eyes takes on a new and decidedly dark twist. Meeting Bella is both the most unnerving and intriguing event he has experienced in all his years as a vampire. As we learn more fascinating details about Edward's past and the complexity of his inner thoughts, we understand why this is the defining struggle of his life. How can he justify following his heart if it means leading Bella into danger?

What a flaming heap of doodoo... The only saving grace for this book was the excitement in the end.

I found Edward to be extremely whiny. His inner monologue repeated the same thing over and over and over. Why can't I read her mind? I'm such a monster. I'm going to burn in hell for this. It was almost 600 pages of this and barely any story. Where was the story that I loved so much all those years ago?

The only excitement I had was when the baseball game started and Meyers finally let lose and allowed the characters to flow and be who they where instead of forcing feelings on them. The excitement and action of the Cullen's coming to Bella's rescue at the dance studio really worked. I wished Meyers would have just let it flow instead of whined so much.
