I am 57 and was concerned that this was a book for teens. I love anything about vampires so I gave it a try. I was on vacation and was do happy to have the time to listen each day. I look forward to the next 2. The narrator is great and that makes the world of difference.
I listened to this book, not realizing it was a 'young adult' fiction and loved it. I gave it to my daughter to read and she's hooked. Its great to have a series of books that we can both read and discuss together.
I have to admitt I was more than a bit skeptical about this series because I have heard if often compared to the Harry Potter books which are brillant. However, the Twilight series defintly lives up to the hype. I felt like Twilight the first book in the series did a great job of portraying the sense of longing that you feel for someone that you begin to fall in love with. During the climax of the story I was on the edge of my seat literally. I really enjoyed this book and I hope if you purchase it you will feel the sanme way. :)
This book has caught my imagination in a surprising manner. I am not normally into science fiction, but this is entertaining and romantic. I am fascinated by vampires...now. GREAT BOOK!!!
Make sure you have time to listen to these books for 12+ hours straight. I couldn't stop listening!!! My school work is suffering because after I listened to the frist (Twilight) I had to download the second and thrid!
I never believed that i could find a book that i would love just as much, if not more than, Harry Potter. it was truly entrancing and an amazingly beautiful story. it had made me lose my appetite and even extremely anxious until i finished all of the up-to-date twilight series. I truly hope the series never ends. I would highly recommend this book for everyone of all ages.
I enjoyed the narration. It took a little getting use to, but she actually did a good job. The story is great, except I find Bella hard to relate to sometimes. She's so helpless at times, and there is a strong undercurrent of co-dependency. I still really like the story, and enjoyed it overall.
