I was first introduced to audiobooks during a summer when I decided to drive a truck in order to pay for college. Listening to books all day, every day was the only thing that made that job bearable.
At this point everyone knows what Twilight is about and very little needs to be said about the characters or plot. What does need to be mentioned, though, is Ilyana Kadushin's unparalleled performance as Bella. After listening to this book I had a hard time believing Kristen Stewart's performance in the films. She just falls short of what Ilyana is able to accomplish here. Fantastic.
Tucked away in the beautiful mountains of New Mexico.
We listened to this book on a car trip. While it was a good book with an interesting premise, I think it was a bit too mature for my youngest (age 8). It was appropriate for my daughter, age 12, who enjoyed the book, as did I.
The book had lots of things going on that were fun, amusing and thought-provoking. But it also addressed juvenile death and, somewhat thinly veiled, the loss of virginity.
