I have noticed a lot of people complaining and giving this book bad review just because it isnt Midnight Sun, but I for one am happy that Stephenie didnt rush the writing of that book just to satisfy a 10 year anniversary. the only negative thing I will say about the book is some of the name choices, most felt awkward aside from a few. but other than that, this is a very enjoyable read as long as you dont go healong into it expecting Midnight Sun.
side note: for anyone worried, this story has an end, it doesnt just leave you dangling in the wind. which I really enjoyed =)
Now we have a gorgeous female vampire in love with a totally ordinary guy and....yawn. Who needs more descriptions of gorgeous, perfect women? You can open up any fashion magazine or Hollywood tabloid and read about them. There is no way for the average Twilight reader to put herself into this story - especially since "Beau" is a totally unappealing character and "Edythe" is just making me picture Rob Pattinson in drag.
I don't know why I'm so annoyed by this book - hey, we're not talking about a literary work like "Pride and Prejudice" here, but for the love of all that is holy (as Meyer herself likes to say), could we just have "Midnight Sun" finished before we are all too old to care about this series anymore?
I'm hoping Stephenie will write more books for this series. If she does, I will buy them in a heartbeat (assuming she stays true to the original characters for whom I have such a fondness.) I've often thought a book that picks up ten years or so into the future from where the series ended would be interesting.

It took a while to stop mapping especiallythe Cullen's to their former names and genders however I finally understood bwhy it was insufficient to simply swap Bella to Beau and Edward t Edythe. Edward related to his opposite in Alice socAlice had to become Archie.
At times the thoughts and actions of the transposed characters just didn't work. Male and female do exist and some of the screenplay was a stretch too far. Mostly it worked and the resolution of he book rang clear and true, I finally stopped trying to think Eleanor =Emmett and just followed the story. But am I the only one that thinks Beau has morphed to Edward by the close?
By chapters 5 I was sold .
Everything I expected , just loved it.
