I read the Twilight series in the wrong order - I was late to this party and I started with Midnight Sun. This entry in the series let me "hear" Edward as well as Bella throughout the other four books. Eclipse was especially painful to read when I could "hear" Edward. He was becoming so desperate to hold onto Bella that he became possessive and controlling - qualities I was sure he would hate in himself. His journey to learn to treat Bella as his equal became as interesting to me as Bella's choice to give up her mortality. Since Stephenie Meyer isn't going to finish MS anytime soon (and may never continue Edward's point of view in the other books) I decided to take a closer look at some key scenes in Eclipse and try to figure out for myself what Edward is thinking.
This first chapter is from the very end of New Moon, Edward's point of view, confrontation scene with Jacob pages 550-563.
The second chapter is a bit shorter, from Eclipse pages 27 & 28, Edward's point of view, when he offhandedly suggests hunting wolves if they move to Alaska...
Third chapter, Eclipse pages 28 & 29, Wuthering Heights
Snippet:"That thought brought me up short. That thought twisted my mess of thoughts and fears and pain into a knot so tight I could barely see the strands. I would not allow Bella to put herself in danger?? What kind of possessive monster was this thought from? Was my selfish need for Bella so strong, that my love for her could be twisted, tainted by this new possessive beast?"
