Is it completely weird that I read on your blog (I really like the "real" letters) but review here?
Again, really liking the slow reveal. It's almost like being there.

I found this story thru a great rec on FB and as people were making comments I discovered you also are writing this on your blog but have handdwritten the letters, which drew me right in. So I'm reading the blog and FFn but am reviewing here. Just a note, this paragraph is not included on the blog, 'I don't know where I'll go when I get out, but I don't have the means to get very far. I came to Seattle to check out the music scene. I never want to go back to Chicago. The southwest does sound nice. Maybe someday . . .' Don't know if it's intentional or not.
I am intrigued already as we learn about these two total opposites. I do wonder about Edward's life before he was incarcerated and what led him to make the choices he made that ended him up in prison. Bella, of course, is just starting her life which is full of promise. I know Edward is probably somewhat defensive and sees it as judgemental, but Bella is absolutely correct to not give out personal identifiers. She doesn't really know anything about Edward other than he is incarcerated. I find it endearing that Edward signs his letters 'Your inside man'. It's really sad that Bella's is his first personal correspondence in all the years he has been in prison. Really loving this story!

Does Edward think that because of the address of the university and Bella's mention of the southwest that she's hiding where she's at? Or simply withholding part of her story? It's sad to see him so lonely and it's obvious he's working to better himself in preparation for return to non-prison life. Good story!

You say you won't judge me, but you have already. You've given me your first name and the address of the university. You say you're from the "southwest."
Ah, I forgot about that. Although, I don't blame her one bit for guarding herself.

He has a point. She did unpuporsely judge him.
You see that. Big word. Lol.

Damn what a lonely life Edward lives in prison. I just wonder what he'll do for work when he gets out. Who would hire someone whose been in jail for ten years.

God he is just so cute in his writing. You just want to hug him. Maybe thats just me.

Like the way that they're slowly finding out about each other.
| pilotnana chapter 5 . 6/4/2011
He is so not used about human contacts, he is so guarded, defensive. still he has a desperate need for someone to hear him, "see" him. " I will never ignore you, Isabella. You don't deserve that" ..10 years for a crime is a long time..can't wait to find out what he did! xxx

Well, learning about Edward is interesting...I like that he does call her out on judging him and he is right on both accounts. She should protect herself, she doesn't know him yet. though I have a feeling that may change in time.

Don't even know what he did and already he's endearing himself to me. :)

So this letter was a little deep. I feel sad for him because he literally has no one.
I was a little offended or affronted, not sure which one fits best, about how he feels judged already because Bella hasn't shared specifics. I know he states that he understands why but I don't think he really does. Even if he wasn't in jail and they met say online I don't think she should share personal information right away either. She doesn't know who he is and they have only just met. I almost get the last name bit but where she lives and such nope. Keep it to yourself sister. People are crazy and what if someone else on the inside finds your info. Oh hellz no. You don't even know he's sex on legs yet.
Oh and yes people will judge and I'm glad he understands that. Unfortunately it is another price paid for bad decisions that land you in the slammer.
Poor guy you see why people that come out have a tendency to go back? The odds are already stacked against them before they even step out. Luckily this is Edward and he's gonna pull through and persevere. With some help from Bella of course.
I feel like I'm being harsh right now but he hit nerve. Looking forward to seeing how Bella responds.
Oh and my fave food is carbs.

Why you gotta make a criminal so damn adorable? If it turns out that he's unjustly imprisoned i'm gonna want B to comfort him, with her vagina. And when they finallu do it, he better bust a nut quickly or i'm calling shenanigans on your story.
