Review Round Up: Midnight Sun by Stephanie Meyer

The author of the Twilight Saga has released a new addition to the series – telling the story from Edward’s point of view. Here’s what critics have been saying about it…

The Washington Post: “Meyer wrote with her biggest fans in mind, dedicating the book to them, and plunging into the mind of Washington state’s most complicated teenage vampire as he falls for a woman who is more determined than we’ve given her credit for.”

The Independent: ** “Midnight Sun is a frustrating reminder of how much of popular culture focuses on a helpless woman being saved by a troubled, yet ultimately forgivable man.”

The Guardian: “Unfortunately, Midnight Sun does not make for gripping reading, nor significantly expand Meyer’s vampiric lore, an obvious missed opportunity when writing from Edward’s perspective.”

Den of Geek: “Even Twilight fans will be hard-pressed to find enough that’s new and compelling about this retelling.” “What is actually interesting about Bella Swan, and what I continue to find compelling about her even when she is filtered through Edward’s thoughts, is how ferociously and desperately that girl wants some power for herself. She sees a hot guy who can offer power to her — who can make her rich and hot and strong and young forever”

A Book “Midnight Sun was well worth the wait. I laughed, I cried, I fell in love with the world of Twilight all over again. And I can’t wait to reread it.”

The Times: “This vampiric saga has been sucked dry.”

Midnight Sun is available to buy now.
