I was hooked from the beginning. Great characters and a capativating story. The narrator did a good job.
I am 42 and still found the story very enjoyable. I didn't want to stop listening. Sure, I would have prefered that things got a little more... adult. However, I enjoyed it so much that I am moving on to the second book in the saga and happily anticipting Bella's story to continue to unfold. Oh! I am not sure why one reviewer found the narrators voice unpleasant. I happened to LOVE the narrators voice.
I try to read everything that my daughter reads so that we have things to talk about. I am so glad she gave in to peer pressure at school and read this series. I enjoyed the trip to Washington a little too much. Now that i've finished the first three, I miss Jacob... I hope he comes back to me in the next book. Don't miss this series, it's too much fun.
If I could give this zero stars, I would. The writing is TERRIBLE, the plot is nonexistent, and the main character is just a Mary Sue. I couldn't even get halfway through it. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone, even my worst enemy.
The was by far the worst book I have ever read in my life! I finally caved in and read it because everyone, and I mean, EVERYONE was giving it such rave reviews, and I am so sorry I went against my better judgment. This sappy romance is so poorly written that I can't imagine anyone with a fourth grade education or higher would find it entertaining in the least. It was completely mindless and had no literary value whatsoever. There is absolutely no greater waste of time that I'm aware of on the planet. If no stars were an option I would have chosen it.
After I saw all the films, I decided to listen to all the books.
This being the first one, I was (still am) completely hooked.
This was spell binding, fascinating and hard to put down.
I love this book. I cannot recommend this enough.
The book is too long, so much could have been cut out.
Maybe, I would need to read a more adult book, there was so much that just doesn't make sence for example, Why is Bella so important, so special? Ok Edward feels like he needs to protect her but goodness. They are way to dramatic for me.
No, this was a great performance by her.
Please don't turn this into a tv series.
The movie is just like the book, please just watch the movie. Don't waste your time on this slow book.
Because I didn't enjoy the narration, I decided to purchase the book - which I ended up loving. The movie was also terrible - I honestly think this story works best in novel form.
I love the author. I feel in love with the book series and finished each book consecutively. After the TWILIGHT series dies down, I wish the author would go into super-creative mode and create another series as good as this one.
