My curiosity won in the end and I, admittedly, devoured this. Did I like it? Not really, but I also couldn't put it down... I blame the nostalgia and my love for cringe. It's interesting to see the story with fresh, mature eyes. I realize how the relationships in this series skewed my expectations of love & desire when I was younger. To be honest, I reread the rest of the series when I was finished with "Midnight Sun;" I think the books from Bella's perspective are far more engaging and offer better plot development.
