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.
The story just keeps building. I definately recommend listening to this 3rd book. Vampires, werewolves, humans, romance, mystery and action. Can't wait for the next one!
I love this series of books and have listened to them many times over; however, I got mine for 1 credit each when they were new. The only one I didn't buy from Audible was Breaking Dawn because it was 2 credits. There are many other books with the same price and even higher that are 1 credit. Your 'why 2 credits' excuse doesn't wash.
Let's see if you print this review.
Different...read book first and loved it too
Made me want to move right on to the next
Retired USN! I enjoy movies, books, traveling and making quilts.
The narrator can make a story come to life or not. Llyana does that.
Jacob, because I am a Native American, but mostly because I think most people have been in love and lost that person.
She brought this story to life.
I wanted to. I would find myself listening in my car then putting headphones on continue listeing.
Kadushin is just perfect! She made the story an experience.
The whole book sucked you in.
The book was read wonderfully. However, is my least favorite Twilight Saga book. But I did enjoy listening to the book a lot.
The story is not too bad; but this is the third book. Bella is still whining about her inadequacies. But really, there needs to be a vampire law that says that teenagers should not be turned -- all that teenage drama for an eternity. The Volturi really needs to take this issue on. I get it, she is a klutz and she has self image hang-ups.
I like the additional background stories which provides some depth to the other characters. The movie is better but, of course, things are slightly different and you do not get the whole story.
I work with young people so I have been reading this series to keep up. There are a lot of red flags in Bella's and particularly Edward's relationship (ie keeping secrets from parents, isolation from others, making decisions that will effect the rest of your life - or life after death, love) that provide good discussion opportunities with young people.
I think the narrator does a good job with the reading and the different voices.
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.
