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 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 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.
