Although I read all the books I wanted them on audio as well, even though this book is my least fav of the 4 as I felt it was oh so drawn out, and Bella seemed be very weak and whiny in this book, the narration was great,I like the fact that Jacob caracter was narrated by a male voice. I had an easier time listening than I did reading it..
I'm a Cardiac Anesthesiologist with two college aged children. I used 2 check my kid's books for appropriateness & now enjoy those books 2.
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 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 know I'm not the intended audience for this series, although I'm female I left "young adulthood" ages (and ages) ago. I enjoyed Twilight and I will probably listen to the fourth book when it's available (I'm compulsive, okay) but listening to this book was like treading water. The "exposition fairy" ran amok in Eclipse and other than that not much else happens. Nothing is resolved. The outcome of the big "battle" is in no way unexpected. And if you edited out every sentence where Bella expresses either her own unworthiness or someone else's perfection, this book would be half as long. Fans will feel compelled to slog their way through this one but here's hoping Bella relocates her brain and her backbone in time for book 4.
Loving books :) Quick and honest reviews.
Yes, I would. The writing style is simple, easy to follow and well narrated.
This book is the weaker of the others. Little more conflict. Little more flare. I think it is a great bridge between the 2nd and 4th book. I think the 4th book will have more crazy stuff that I am wanting.
She does a great job. This book didn't need the 2 narrators.
Well it has been I think. I am a little late jumping on the twilight train.
Great book, ready for the 4th. worth the read. I was very surprised. SO much more than a lame teenage vampire story.
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.
