I would first excuse me for how much of fiction this story is and than tell them that I read one book after another!
Yes I would.
It is very well read, this makes already half the pleasure. And it is a very romantic story, very much a chick-lit.
"Wonderful and very amusing"
Breaking Dawn is my favourite of the books, it isn't going to the extremes concerning the plot as it is about a coming to age story of a girl in love with a vampire and a wolf. I find Walters impressions of a female voice quite amusing and it made me giggle a few times but it never deferred from the openness and angst of all the characters. I am disappointed that people who are ready to listen to a story concerning mythical creatures and legends are perfectly happy to dismiss the ending of the plot altogether. There is a reason why it's called fiction. Over all a very good read and i find myself hardly picking up the book any more, prefering to listen instead.
"Good narration...poor conclusion"
Having enjoyed the previous 3 books I hoped for a satisfying conclusion but was sadly disappointed.
There was some very lazy writing such as how Charlie would respond to Bella being a vampire (this was one aspect I was looking forward too but it was handled poorly).
Additionally the ending is remarkably dull and very little happens. A poor conclusion to a reasonably good series of books.
I read award winning and thought hmm give it a go.
It was ear vomit.
The story was all padding leading up to an enormous battle at the end, both sides decided wasnt worth the effort went home and the book ended.
Unless you enjoy very long detailed descriptions of the clothes vampires wear get something else Perdido street station was the best ive heard in a while and I dont usually go for that sort of thing
"Surprised that I enjoyed the series"
I would recommend the series - I had not watched any of the films as with the hype made me ambivalent but I decided to give the original book a chance. So glad I did.
I love all three of the main characters and they are so well written that you can read the development of their emotions. Even the non-central characters are well written and developed. I really like Edward and the internal turmoil he is going through - the way he is prepared to release Bella if that is for the best because he loves her but also prepared to fight to the very end if that is what is needed. I also love his complete trust.
I know it is very sentimental but I loved the wedding and ached at Jacobs reaction. I really felt for him but loved the solid commitment made by the married couple.
I cried a few times but during the stand-off when Bella and Edward were saying goodbye to their child made my heartache.
I am so glad this series ended correctly. Lots of turmoil and stress but things do work out in the end with one or two twists.
I recently read a well-known thirteen book series which didn't conclude correctly and caused me stress after investing many hours in the story and characters but The Twilight Series was one of the best thing I have read this year. I will not bother to watch the films as the actors never look the way I picture the characters in my imagination.
Well worth reading.
"AWESOME, AMAZING, FANTASTIC!!!"
Oh so much, I am totally obsessed with the Twilight Saga, and I'm not a teenager! Breaking Dawn didn't disappoint, the narration is wonderful! I loved everything, the romance, great action, all of the great characters and of course the Volturi!
I wouldn't, all the Twilight books are unique to me.
Only the Twilight Saga and they are brilliant! They portray the characters perfectly.
"1st book I've ever read!"
I am 37 years old and have never read a book before just because after 2 or 3 pages I get bored and give up but right from the very first Twilight series book i could not stop reading. Ive stayed up all through the night and had to keep going till it was finished Ive now watched the film too and its the best story EVER. Loved it PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make more!!
"Excellent book to listen to"
the people who narrated the book Ilyana Kadushin & Matt Walters read the book perfectly without over acting. The story was very enjoyable to listen to even though I was hoping for more action at the end of the book with a fight like with the previous stories. Apart from that the end of the story was ok.
"A must read!!!!!!!!!!!!"
With all the bad reviews I have read about this audiobook I must say that I dont understand why people don't like it???? There is nothing wrong with the voices what so ever. Yes it is in an American accent but the characters are american so that sould be expected!!!! It's a must buy if you are a fan of the Twilight saga!!!! 5 out of 5 is my rating
"A fitting conclusion"
I enjoyed the whole series of books and this final installment pulls together all the plot elements both entertainingly and satisfactorily. I'm almost sorry to see it end, although I think it was the right time. If you enjoyed the previous three books then this should not disappoint in quality. If you have not read any of the books, then I would recommend them as a series on the basis that they are all enjoyable books in their own right, but also that the last book does not let the whole series down, as I have experienced with other series in the past. The narrator has done an excellent job throughout the whole series.
"A pleasing end"
After enjoying the other audio's in this series it was inevitable that I would download this one. I enjoy happy endings and on that level this book did not disappoint, in fact it was a little to saccharine sweet even for my taste. I would not listen to this as a stand alone book despite the excellent narration. However, for those who have read the other books do not let that put you off. If you have grown attached to the characters in the other books you will feel this is a nice place to say farewell to them.
