Love all her books. This one is a bit sappier in my eyes than the other 3 but I do so enjoy her ideas and flow. She writes eloquently and reads effortlessly. I read a novel a week and listen to one at same time and I have read and listened to her series.
The love triangle keeps you hooked. I caught myself laughing a lot with the developing relationship between Edward and Jacob. It just keeps getting better and better. It is worth listening to the entire series. You will love them all. It is hard to pick a favorite. That goes for book and characters.
I know i am not the intended audience for this book but even though am a teen male i loved it. I started reading Twilight without knowing that it was a girls series. Over time i caught on but i kept on reading because i was so gripped. When i read Eclispe i felt that the way that Stephanie Meyer blended 3 such different charecters lives together was brillant and by the time i had read a hundred pages i was enthralled. She also made me really get into these books like she made me personally hate Jacob with a passion, really like Edward and bella. This series is one of my favorite of all time and i hope that other people find my reccomendation helpful.
I hope those considering this book have already read/listened to Twilight (book 1) and New Moon (book 2). Even at 42 years of age I am a huge fan. Breaking Dawn (book 4) is due to be released in 2 days (actually 1.25 days) and I am hoping that it is available on Audible immeditely (Like most of you, I prefer to listen instead of read (I drive all day)). What a truly captivating story.
ps: I also love the young lady reading. It is consistent throughout the three books (soon to be four). and she really brings more dimension to Bella.
I have been pleasantly surprised by this series. I never thought I'd get into a romance novel. Evidently if you add mythical monsters to the mix, I will fall for a cupid story.
This book finds our heroine torn between two loves: her true love and her best friend. Oh yeah, she has a vengeful vamp still trying to kill her; the threat of undead enforcers showing up to check on her status; and weird things are happening in Seattle. All of these things in the mix make this book hard to put down.
I actually got so sick and tired of listening to her drown and on and on about her delimma between Vamp and Wolf, it thorugholy made the book unenjoyable to me. I have a hard time believing one little girl would be so sought after to cause such turmoil. Just get it over with for goodness sake.
The Twilight series caught me by surprise in that it was a much better read (and page turner) than I anticipated, given its target audience.
I was traveling on business and needed a book to listen to on my long haul flight back to the States, this installment more than filled the bill. The characters continue to grow, the story is more compelling and builds extreme anticipation for the final installment - Breaking Dawn. The voice talent isn't necessarily the most skilled in doing different voices, but she's captured Bella well. All in all, a very fine installment that left me wanting more. A worthy purchase.
I'm trying to wean myself and learn to function without earbuds for more than ten minutes at a time. It hasn't been easy. I lose balance...
I'm gonna have to split the praise between the author and Ilyana's reading. But as much as I do love this series, and I really do, I am very afraid of the next one. The portion read by the male voice of "Jacob" was stilted and uncomfortable. It's a very small portion of this book though and I still highly enjoyed it. But I'm hoping it doesn't mean a change in readers for the next. Please don't do it. Ilyana is what makes the books come alive. Having said that, kudos to Stephanie Meyer for another brilliant teen romance that stays away from the trite nonsense of the typical vampire slushpile.
