Reviews for Summer Interlude
Siriusmunchkin chapter 14 . 1/22/2010
An amendment to my last review. It should have gone more like, Men who are very much in love are frequently dense enough to believe they know what is best for you, and that they know what you want and need more than you do. They are frequently wrong. And they're always convinced that you couldn't possibly really mean what you are saying because it goes against what they believe. It's very frustrating when they're like that as Bella knows all too well. And Edward still needs a slap upside the head with an iron pipe. Wish he'd listen to Carlisle or Alice. Her visions don't lie and Bella is not going to change her decision that Edward is the only life she wants. The man is delusional. Be very interesting to know what she said to Carlisle. I'm guessing it was along the lines of will you change me or is there anything I can do to get Edward to change his mind.

Outstanding. I really want to slap Edward upside the head with an iron pipe to get his attention so I can tell him to listen to what Bella wants, really wants, and stop trying to force her into the life he thinks she should have. Men can be irrationaly dense at times. Thinking they know what's better for you, or that you really don't mean what you're saying. Can be extremely infuriating as Bella knows all too well.
Siriusmunchkin chapter 12 . 1/21/2010
Very, very well written. You so easily capture the feelings and personalities of your characters, and express them in a way that is so easy to see and feel. Billy's reactions pretty much guaranteed it was the Quileutte wolves Bella saw at the accident site. Will Bella question why Carlisle said not to mention the wolves? The Cullen's all obviously know who and what they were. And, of course, that's who(the wolves)Billy was referring to when he had Jacob tell Bella "we'll be watching". Wish your story could have been part of the Saga and Edward really realized how much Bella loved him. But then it would have taken away from the books. And I wouldn't have gotten to enjoy your story. Alice is another favorite. Too bad she couldn't just tell Edward what was going to happen to Bella when he left. Not that he would have believed her. Some men just don't know when to shut up and pay attention.
Siriusmunchkin chapter 11 . 1/21/2010
My first guess is Charlie and Bella just saw the Quileutte werewolves. That would be Sam, Jared, and Paul. Are they just keeping an eye on the Cullen's? Laurent and Victoria don't make an appearance until long after the Cullen's leave. At least we don't know about it until then. Maybe Victoria is sniffing around?
Siriusmunchkin chapter 10 . 1/21/2010
The POV stories really are great. The two prospectives on the same conversation, incident, etc. give more feeling to the words and make it easier to "see the story". Visualization is a very important part of enjoying anything I read. This crash is not going to be a good thing. Edward is obviously about to freak out when he finds no one home. Hopefully Carlisle will check in with the hospital and be able to reassure him that everyone is going to be okay.
Siriusmunchkin chapter 9 . 1/21/2010
Family is important and large families have conflicts. Being the youngest of 7, been there, done that more than once. It's also possible to have close relationships with your siblings even if you don't always get along. And you're always there for each other. You've captured the personalities of each family member pretty much as I'd imagined them. And this is still a wonderful story. I will be sad when it ends. But I'm always sad when I finish a story or book, because I always want more.
Siriusmunchkin chapter 8 . 1/21/2010
Another wonderful chapter. There's a lot of great humor and/or sarcasm and that's my favorite. Will admit the only Cullen I've never been fond of is Rosalie. She's a spoiled bitch, Edward is so right about that. I do have a soft spot for Edward and Emmett. My husband was a combination of the two of them.
Siriusmunchkin chapter 7 . 1/21/2010
If you weren't as obsessed with your characters your story wouldn't be as good as it is. And it is very definitely a good story. Very easy to visualize what you write. And if you can't visualize what the writer is saying then the story is frequently not worth reading.

tears r rolling down my face at the moment...
Siriusmunchkin chapter 6 . 1/21/2010
Enjoying this very much. Not sure which POV I enjoy most. I can see both POV's reflected in my life. My husband and I were as much in love as Bella and Edward. Unfortunately our forever was very shortlived. He died from cancer less than a month before our first wedding anniversary. Maybe that's why I've enjoyed the Saga so much. It's a beautiful thing that two people so in love get to spend forever together.
Siriusmunchkin chapter 5 . 1/21/2010
Still an incredible story. The interaction between Bella, Edward and the rest is what I've visualized. I don't think much about the actual words, which is why I'm a reader not a writer. Think more about how characters relate to one another.
Siriusmunchkin chapter 4 . 1/21/2010
Incredible doesn't begin to describe the way you've written this story. Do you read minds? I swear you're reading mine. I've been wondering how they spent the summer, and it's like you've written the inbetween book Meyer left out. Reading has been my passion for the last 50 yrs, and I always want to know what the characters are doing when they're not on the pages the author has written. I've only just found this site and read some really good stories. This is the first that fills in between Twilight and New Moon. I'm sure there will be more, but this one is how I've been visualizing that time.
Siriusmunchkin chapter 3 . 1/20/2010
Absolutely astounding. You have so captured exactly how I visualized Bella and Edward.
Siriusmunchkin chapter 2 . 1/20/2010
Just as good, if not better than, the first chapter. Love POV stories. It makes real. If that sounds weird, don't worry. I do weird a lot better than Bella.
Siriusmunchkin chapter 1 . 1/20/2010
A great first chapter. If they're all this good I'm going to enjoy this story very much.
