The character Bella is a nonentity, she has no character at all except that she is silly and stupid, very annoying.
The main narrator for this story is excellent but the narrator for Jacob could well be left out in this book - his voice is only heard briefly which is a good thing.
Despite the flaws, this story is rivetting.
I found myself fraught with anticipation, and wanting to skip to the "last page". Emotionally up and down... A reminder of high school and the emotional upheaval. THIS is what a book should be- all consuming. Why else do we read? I haven't been this enthralled with a series of books since I read "Heart Shaped Box." I will definately read everything written by this author. "Bravo!" and "GIVE ME MORE!"
ok, so i have listened non stop to these audiobooks for about 4 days... i just finished eclipse and it was good, MUCH better than new moon.... that one was way too slow for me... I AM sick of the caracter jacob... he is getting on my nerves.. i would muchhhhhhh rather get into edwards head.. or even alices...
anyhow... aside from all that, i recommend this series hands down.... it makes harry potter look like crap!
Entertaining! I read the entire Twilight Series and enjoyed each and every one of them. The characters were well developed and the storyline in each book was interesting and very entertaining. I would have loved to have more to read and was sad when I finished this last of the series.
I am a hopeless bibliophile and audiobooks are perfect for me. I get to read and keep my hands free. Perfect for a busy mom/ nurse.
this series just gets more and more engrossing, I love how the characters are written and the narrator does a great job. I was totaly wrapped up in the story and the characters personal journies.
Contrary to some, I actually like the narrator. SHe does read a bit slow than if we were reading it ourselves, but she is good. AFter reading the other 2 Twilight SEries, I must say Bella is starting drive me crazy, talk about indecision with what she wants and a big big worry wart. Don't know how many times Edward and Jacob have told her not to worry. Also not to be able to tell Jacob that stop trying to kiss me, I love Edward would be a nice start. Jacob is right she is being really unfair to both. I am droning down my excitement on the series now. I heard this one is based on Wuthering Heights and the last one on Romeo and Juliet. A bit of originality would of been better as they could of been done so much better!!
As with New Moon, I felt that this story was filler. Again, the relationship between Bella and Jacob seemed a stretch and contrived to cram a conflict down our throats. Oddly, I found the Seth character more believable and delightful than the Jacob character. Edward and Alice are their usual wonderful, interesting, and colorful selves while Bella -- well she could be anybody. She is so not spectacular. The only interesting thing about her is the fact that Edward digs her and since he digs her -- we as fans, get to spend time with him.
I have worked in information Technology for 25 years and have run my own small business for 23 years. I love books!
What a great book - it is wonderful to be able to escape into this world!
