Publisher's Summary

To be irrevocably in love with a vampire is both fantasy and nightmare, woven into a dangerously heightened reality for Bella Swan. Pulled in one direction by her intense passion for Edward Cullen, and in another by her profound connection to werewolf Jacob Black, she has endured a tumultuous year of temptation, loss, and strife to reach the ultimate turning point.

Her imminent choice to either join the dark but seductive world of immortals or pursue a fully human life has become the thread from which the fate of two tribes hangs.

Now Bella has made her decision, and a startling chain of unprecedented events is about to unfold with potentially devastating and unfathomable consequences. Just when the frayed strands of Bella's life - first discovered in Twilight, then scattered and torn in New Moon and Eclipse - seem ready to heal and knit together, could they be destroyed...forever?

The astonishing, breathlessly anticipated conclusion to the Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn illuminates the secrets and mysteries of this spellbinding romantic epic.

Don't miss the other titles in the Twilight Saga.

    "Not All Enjoyable Reads Have to be Good Literature"

    Is this book literature--No, most definitely.

    Is is wonderfully written, lyrical prose--ah, no, not really.

    Is it fun? Absolutely. Reading, unless you are still a college student, is for entertainment, and this book, as the others in the series, is fun, and entertaining.

    The love story is great, and more mature in this book than the others. If you want to read something for fun, this series fills the bill.

    I do have to say I wish the author would invest in a Thesaurus. She does tend to overuse phrases and certain words. I would say almost once per page someone "rolled his/her eyes." It got tiresome, but overall I really enjoyed this book.

    We can nitpick her writing all we want, but she can grin all the way to the bank. Getting a mainstream novel published is not easy and the scrutiny of details by editors is over the top and very wearing on an author.

    Just read and have fun.

    "My Favorite - Highly recommend"

    I loved the 4th and final Twilight book, Breaking Dawn. I think it is the best of all the books, though the first book, Twilight holds a close second. I'm so sad that the story is now over but maybe in the future Stephenie Meyer will want to return to her vampires. This book was my favorite not only because all is resolved to my satisfaction but it had good suspense througout the book, quite a few surprises and the continuation of Bella and Edward's love story. I found the 2nd book too sad and melancholy and had a hard time waiting for Edward to return. The 3rd book was good but didn't get too exciting until the 2nd half. Even with these comments they are probably now one of my favorite sagas of all time.

    "Best Series Ever"

    I am a huge fan of the twilight series, and absolutely love the audiobooks. The narrators are wonderful.... both of them really embody the characters through their voices. I have listened to all four in the series 5 times now, and love to escape into the wonderful world Stephanie Meyer created when I need a break from the real stuff.

    I suggest the books to anyone. I am not usually in to this type of fiction but loved it, and could not put it down. However, please be aware Breaking Dawn is a little risky as far as young adult goes. I think it is appropriate for teens that are aware of adult topics, if your teen might not be mature enough for adult topics I would hold off on this book of the series.

    "Not as good as i hoped.."

    I loved the other books in this series, but this one i was disapointed in, the plot seemed overly drawn out to me...granted it is hard to end a series, but i feel this one could have been done better, i gave it three stars...

    Story
    "Just my opinion, that's all."

    The performance itself was marvelously well done. The choice to use two narrators, one for Bella's two books and one for Jacob's one book, was a very wise decision. Both narrators read with vigor and personality which made it very easy to listen to and follow. I've found that sometimes when readers personalize what they're reading into character voices and such, it can be interesting but at the same time it can get very tiresome and irritating after a while; however, some people seem to manage to not overdo or "under" do a reading and that's what these two did quite successfully. As for the story itself, it was a relatively good story that flowed nicely and wrapped things up for this series well enough, but I have to say, Meyers sometimes stretches the writers' saying "show don't tell" a little bit too far. I like detail, but there is such a thing as too much detail. Tolkien often comes close to that edge, but Meyers jumps right off, especially with the first book of Bella. I'm sure that many out there would disagree with me, but personally, I think that the story could've been told with just a few less words is all. Overall, this particular audiobook was very good, not great, but very good nevertheless.

    "Wonderful Production! Highly Recommend."

    Having read all the Twilight series in book form, I just had to listen to them as well. I find the experiences uniquely different in that both add to the story if done RIGHT. This is the key in audio books. The wrong material may be saved by a great narrator. A bad narrator rarely raises the material to listening level. Yet, in the Twilight audio series both are present.

    "First Time Audio Listener"

    This was the first audio book I have listened to and I really enjoyed the two readers for this book. As far as this book and the writer... well, I myself enjoyed it very much. I wasn't expecting an ending that happened so I was especially surprised at the end. Great book, great writing and gread audio voice clarity. (two thumbs up)

    "Wow!"

    Ok I am not a fiction reader AT ALL. I only read true crime-facts and statistics! Let me just say I was totally sucked into this world and awaiting the next book..Midnight sun! I have read all four books in less than two weeks! I am reading this one again. There is more action and plot twists in this one then all other three combined! Awesome. Ilyana Kadushan is an awesome Narrator by the way. I am looking for more books narrated by her now!
