I downloaded "Breaking Dawn" in order to be able to listen to one of my favorite books while on one of my many road trips. I already owned "Eclipse" and was greatly disappointed by it, so I was nervous about spending my money on "Breaking Dawn". However, my friend convinced me to give it a try and, to my suprise, I REALLY enjoyed it. The narrator had improved her reading so much since "Eclipse", and the addition of a male narrator for Jacob's book made this a very enjoyable listen. I would recommend it to anyone.
Like another reviewer, I loved this book in particular, but the whole series. After I finished listening to it, I was sad that it was over. Stephenie Meyer does an excellent job creating a novel where the reader feels as if they know the characters. I was totally absorbed in the story. ?It is an excellent book and series!
For me, this was the best of the books. It was a very good ending. As with the other three, Ilyana (the reader for Bella) did a great job. Such a great series; so sad to have them end.
well, maybe not all sweet, but compared to Charlene Harris or L. Hamilton, sweet indeed. I read the first 2 several years ago and didn't even know the other 2 were out until my daughter wanted to check them out from the library.
I may be the only one it the world that feels this way but I did not like this book. It feels like she had to write this book but really did not have anymore story to put in the book. Also the superhero vampires were a bit much for me. I liked the first books in the series but this one was just not up to par with her earlier work.
First I read all 4 books. I have an iPod touch so I read e-books which might bug some but not me. The 4th book Breaking Dawn, I also downloaded from audible. I didn't like the fact that it had a 2 credit download so I just bought it. I like audio books and feel kinda like people years ago felt during radio days before TV.
Although I'm now 60 I like the books. Actually I've been between 25-30 for over 30 years but that's a long story. The author deserves her success. I have the Host, in e-book but have not read it yet. I hope we see some additional books from this author.
First of all, I was a little concerned when I read the other reviews about this audiobook. I typically don't like it when more than one author narrates, but it didn't bother me as much as I thought it would. There are separate sections in the book and the male narrator only reads Jacob's section, not Bella's.
With that out of the way...I loved this book. It was a great addition to the series. My favorite by far. I'm going to listen to it again right away! Thanks to Stephenie Meyer! Another great job. Please keep up the series!!!
