I was so excited to find out what happened to Bella and Edward that I had to buy the book. I cant wait to hear Ilyana Kadushin read the book. She did such a great job on the first three books that while I was reading book 4 I heard her voice for Bella.
Stephenie Meyer's books have been so great. While I agree with the first review of this book saying 'I hope this isn't the end of the story.'
I am so glad that Audible finally was able to get the 4th book of the twilight series and I have to say that the book lives up to its reputation...I read the book in 8 hours and I couldn't put it down!!
Great book, thank you Stephenie Meyer for giving me a thrilling ride through your characters. You have a gift for inventing realistic characters and its great to see a fellow Phoenician doing such great things!
I am a huge fan of the twilight series, and absolutely love the audiobooks. The narrators are wonderful.... both of them really embody the characters through their voices. I have listened to all four in the series 5 times now, and love to escape into the wonderful world Stephanie Meyer created when I need a break from the real stuff.
I suggest the books to anyone. I am not usually in to this type of fiction but loved it, and could not put it down. However, please be aware Breaking Dawn is a little risky as far as young adult goes. I think it is appropriate for teens that are aware of adult topics, if your teen might not be mature enough for adult topics I would hold off on this book of the series.
Could not stop
The happy ending
Didn't start the series unitl the summer of 2012 because I am not a lover of monster stories. Vampires...who knew. I read the books first and could not put it down after the first couple of pages. I got the audio books because I wanted to read it again. I loved it.
An Excellent conclusion
The narrators bring life and emotion to this book.
I can listen to this over and over. The narrators really make the story come alive for me.
Another great book in the series. Beware though, it's a little darker and not quite as geared toward the younger reader. Although my daughter read the first 3 books, I think I'm going to try to hold this one back for a year or two. I'm not crazy about the "Jacob" narrator, but overall it was a good listen.
I thought the movie (Twilight - 1st book) was just OK, but I am always telling my kids that the book is usually better than the movie. My daughter agreed to read the book if I would read it as well. To my surprise I could not put it down, and have since read all 4 books. I would say this last book is my favorite of the series - but I do believe I could read more! Stephenie Meyer did a wonderful job of drawing the reader into the story. Even helped me to prove a point with my kids, my daughter was so into the books that my 17-year-old son (who only reads automotive books) started reading them and is currently on book 3. My children now agree that the book is better than the movie.
When I say I read all 4 books - I mean I was so into this series I couldn't put them down and was done with all 4 within a week.
Everyone is different and I am sure that some will not like the series, but for me it was great, and now I am left trying to figure out what to read next! I used to read all the time but busy life, business, three kids and so on, I haven't read much in the last few years, but this series reminded me how much I like to read.
I am impressed by this author and look forward to seeing more works from her.
I loved this book! Once it was finished and I was done listening to it all, I was sad that it was over. Great love story and keeps you on your toes the whole time.
As soon as I heard about the Twilight Saga from a friend, and HAD to get the audio books. I got the first two from a friend (although I'm not sure where she acquired them) but I bought this book here, and it was the most wonderful book yet. Every book in this series has been extremely addictive, and I just about constantly listened to them (except they wouldn't let me listen to them while I was at work =( ) I am waiting excitedly for the MOVIE that comes out in theaters 11/21/2008 and there is a sequel currently in the works -- so I'll be watching for it!
I recommend this book to EVERYONE as it is a great story for all ages, boys, girls, young and old. I also feel that everyone should start with the first book if possible, but each book does give enough background as it goes to be able to understand what is going on if read seperately.
Good ending to the series. It got a little too much like the "X-Men" for me, but I enjoyed it nonetheless.
