Midnight Sun was an expected companion novel to the book Twilight দ্বারা লেখক Stephenie Meyer. It would be a retelling of the events of Twilight from the perspective of Edward Cullen as opposed to that of Bella Swan. Meyer has stated that Twilight is the only possible book from the series that she plans to rewrite from Edward's perspective. To give them a better feel of Edward's character, Meyer allowed Catherine Hardwicke, the director of the film adaptation of Twilight, and Robert Pattinson, the actor who plays Edward, to read some completed chapters of the novel while they filmed the movie.
সম্পাদনা Pre-release history
As of August 28, 2008, the release তারিখ of the book has been postponed indefinitely and it is not certain that it will be published. Meyer halted the লেখা of Midnight Sun after the illegal leak of 12 chapters of the unfinished manuscript on the Internet. She stated, "If I tried to write Midnight Sun now, in my current frame of mind, James would probably win and all the Cullens would die, which wouldn't dovetail too well with the original story. In any case, I feel too sad about what has happened to continue working on Midnight Sun, and so it is on hold indefinitely." Meyer does plan to প্রকাশ the book, because she believes Edward deserves to have his version of the story, too.
Meyer later slightly recanted the statement that appeared on her website, telling EW "That was a joke! And it sounded so serious amidst all the lawyer talk and I think my অনুরাগী thought, Wow, she's threatening to kill everyone! [Laughing] I felt kind of bad about that. I never felt any anger, actually. Just a lot of sadness. I mean it was a sucker মুষ্ট্যাঘাত — like someone came up behind আপনি and just hammered আপনি in the kidneys and আপনি had no idea it was coming." She has made the leaked chapters available on her website in fairness to her readers, now that the novel has been compromised before its intended publication date.
In a সাম্প্রতিক interview done with EW, Meyer has stated that, "So my goal is to go for, like, I don't know, two years without ever hearing the words Midnight Sun. And once I'm pretty sure that everyone's forgotten about it, I think I'll be able to get to the place where I'm alone with it again. Then I'll be able to sneak in and work on it again."This statement jokingly lead to the creation of a nickname for Midnight Sun, created at the Twilight Lexicon: Dark High Noon, in an attempt to still be able to talk about Midnight Sun, but not mention its name directly.
