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 felt that this book really captured Bella's time to "shine". The previous books help to bring Bella into the mature protective place that she ends up in the end of this book. I was delighted to see this process finalize with such a strong ending.
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!!!
