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.

    "Perfect ending!"

    I felt that this book really captured Bella's time to "shine". The previous books help to bring Bella into the mature protective place that she ends up in the end of this book. I was delighted to see this process finalize with such a strong ending.

    "Not her best work by far..."

    I may be the only one it the world that feels this way but I did not like this book. It feels like she had to write this book but really did not have anymore story to put in the book. Also the superhero vampires were a bit much for me. I liked the first books in the series but this one was just not up to par with her earlier work.

    "Very Interesting"

    First I read all 4 books. I have an iPod touch so I read e-books which might bug some but not me. The 4th book Breaking Dawn, I also downloaded from audible. I didn't like the fact that it had a 2 credit download so I just bought it. I like audio books and feel kinda like people years ago felt during radio days before TV.
    Although I'm now 60 I like the books. Actually I've been between 25-30 for over 30 years but that's a long story. The author deserves her success. I have the Host, in e-book but have not read it yet. I hope we see some additional books from this author.

    "Was concerned from the other reviews for no reason"

    First of all, I was a little concerned when I read the other reviews about this audiobook. I typically don't like it when more than one author narrates, but it didn't bother me as much as I thought it would. There are separate sections in the book and the male narrator only reads Jacob's section, not Bella's.

    With that out of the way...I loved this book. It was a great addition to the series. My favorite by far. I'm going to listen to it again right away! Thanks to Stephenie Meyer! Another great job. Please keep up the series!!!

    "Sad that this is the last...."

    I was so captivated by the Twilight books and this was no exception. I absolutely love the storyline and all of the characters. Stephenie Meyer does a great job with the development from the beginning with Twilight all the way through to the end with this book. I am very sad that she is not finishing Midnight Sun as this would have been the first book series that I have read that was so interestingly multi-faceted and in-depth with character development. I hope that Stephenie Meyer will reconsider and surprise us with more books with these much loved characters she has created.

    "Not the best book in the saga"

    Although I really enjoyed the first three books of Mrs. Meyer her "Breaking Dawn" is not the best ending for the love story of Edward and Bella. Many of their thoughts are too extreme, too out of context , especially in the first part of the book. I liked the book and the audio rendering but I think it was a bit too much. Nonetheless a very enjoyable audio to accompany you through the day and let you dream away.

    "Fitting Conclusion"

    I had high expectations for the conclusion of the Twilight series, and this book did not disappoint. Ilyana Kadushin is a top notch narrator, and does a great job of conveying Bella's thoughts and emotions. What I was not crazy about was the addition of the male narrator to tell Jacob's part of the story, I found him to be laying on the rebellious teen schtic a little too thick. That aside, Breaking Dawn is still great to listen to, and really allows you to imagine the events being played out. An excellent, engaging listen! (Of course you should have read (and enjoyed!) the first three books in the series so you know what's going on in this book.)

    "okay fiction, okay reader"

    I read the other Stephanie Meyer books and liked them, although they are not as well-crafted as Harry Potter or Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell. I liked--but did not love--this audiobook.

    First, I found the narrator's voice just okay. It's raspy quality didn't seem right for Bella.

    While a really skillful writer can handle adolescent themes with depth, Meyer seems to have to return again and again to tropes in order to write: weddings, fast cars, expensive clothes, beautiful bodies, perfect love, etc.

    I thought I would have to scream if I had to hear one more time how handsome Edward is. I like where the story went, though--
