I fell in love with Edward Cullen when I was 15. After looking duskI went out and bought all four novels that had been conveniently published before the screen customization started. I was in the middle of my first "serious" relationship at the time, but he would graduate soon and go to college. When he pulled away from me, I delved deeper into this fantastic world, which was characterized by puzzles, adrenaline-charged adventures, romantic gestures of almost comical proportions and, by the way, vampires.
I knew little about romantic love and even less about the inner life of young men. I didn't have the tools or the bare essentials to understand how the story's central relationship – and frankly my own – could be toxic. There was one dusk I would have consumed Roman from Edward's perspective, which I was offered at the time, without question. Stephenie Meyer did just that over a decade later, but circumstances have changed and I'm no longer a teenager. How do you dive back into what once meant something to you long after you moved on? And why would you
How do you dive back into what once meant something to you long after you moved on?
Earlier this year, Meyer confirmed that on August 4, she would publish a fifth and supposedly final novel in the series. Midnight sun would be a retelling of the events in the first episode from Edward's point of view, unlike our previous well-known protagonist and heroine Bella Swan. The author had actually written and planned to release the companion piece in 2008, around the time of the first film, but she finally scrapped her plans after the manuscript leaked online. The state Midnight sun then it was more "an exercise in character development that got out of control," Meyer said recently The Hollywood Reporter.
However, Meyer was ready all these years later. "I don't know how everyone else is dealing with it, but at the moment books are my greatest comfort and happiest escape. I personally would only be happy if one of my favorite authors announced something new for me to read," she wrote the announcement on hers Website. "I hope you enjoyed and enjoyed this announcement. You can look forward to it."
The timing is indeed correct, and the new rate may help take up all of the free time at home that we suddenly inherited from the pandemic, but Meyer must have been preparing for the release Midnight sun long before. Why now? The optimist in me thinks Meyer may have felt an obligation to finally complete this "character development exercise" so that she can officially share it with the world, while the pessimist only believes that more can be got out of this financial source . The realist can't answer the phone right now.
"We had a lot of fun, didn't we?"
Meyer himself admitted Midnight sunrather abrupt entry or reentry. "Working on a book for more than thirteen years has been a strange experience. I am not the same person as I was then. My children have all grown up. My back became strange. The world is a different place. I can only imagine everything the things that have changed for you, "was her statement. Then she wrote something that really caught me: "We had a lot of fun, didn't we? Throw proms and hang out in hotel rooms and read on the beach (while we got the most epic sunburns of our lives). We made it funny t-shirts and fabulous ones Websites. We found related spirits that are still in our lives. I hope that you will also be reminded of all the fun when you return to the beginning of Bella's and Edward's story. "
We had a lot of fun, but I think my trip is with me dusk should resemble the high school itself. You write "keep in touch" in the classmates' yearbooks, at least for a while, until you talk less and less. Then not at all.
I still don't know if I'll end up reading Midnight sun. I currently have no plans to do so, but I am also fully aware of the fact that my curiosity is able to overcome all of the above doubts and hesitations just to have it read in one session on a moody autumn weekend. And I'm sure it will be fun.
