Love the Twilight books! After reading books 1 & 2, I couldn't put them down to do anything else. I put book 3 on my ipod. Such a dissappointment! The book is wonderful. The narrator is awful!!!! I will not buy the other 3 on audio unless they redo them with a different narrator. I have listened to or own dozens of audio books. The narrator can make or break your enjoyment.
I got this book for my fiance, so this is her review:
I loved this book- it can be a bit repetitive (like the others, New Moon especially)- but there was humor, and real romance in this one that was lacking in the previous books. I actually laughed out loud, and awed as well. I really enjoyed the addition of the male narrator, I only wish they used the male voice more than just in the preface and epilogue. As much as I love the visual connection that the movies provide, there is so much more depth in the books, I got questions answered and more that I had after watching the movies.
I can't wait to get started on Breaking Dawn, I'm an adult, so I'm looking forward to some more, heat, if you will, this book touched a bit more on the main character's physical connection, but nothing more than PG-13.
I loved reading the Twilight series, but being able to listen to it as I drive back and forth to work on my long commute, has been fantastic. I've read each book in the series at least 5 times and didn't think I could find anything new in hearing the audio. Was I mistaken, pleasently so. The experience of hearing these books was just as exciting as reading them and made me go back and verify scenes and statements that I didn't realize I had somehow paid little attention to. I'm excited to get the final book on audio.
The Twilight Saga is the best saga I have ever read. I read all 4 books in a week and loved them. I decided to download the saga on my computer because I wanted to read them again and I knew that once I started I would be sucked in and there goes my house work and other obligations. At least if I was listening instead of reading I could get my house work done.
I loved it. I listened to all 4 books & started over again. I made the mistake & watched the movie after I listen to Twilght. I wasted 2 hrs I will never get back. My husband is making fun of me because my Ipod never leaves my ears now.
Book One - Rad
Book Two - Meh
Book Three - Bella, you are driving me nuts with the whining! Seriously, by about 2 hours in I was seriously wondering how I could make it though the remaining 8 hours or so of tape. The story-line, the chemistry is still there a little bit but she just keeps droning on and on and on. I don't think I'm going to bother with book four
