Like another reviewer, I loved this book in particular, but the whole series. After I finished listening to it, I was sad that it was over. Stephenie Meyer does an excellent job creating a novel where the reader feels as if they know the characters. I was totally absorbed in the story. ?It is an excellent book and series!
For me, this was the best of the books. It was a very good ending. As with the other three, Ilyana (the reader for Bella) did a great job. Such a great series; so sad to have them end.
well, maybe not all sweet, but compared to Charlene Harris or L. Hamilton, sweet indeed. I read the first 2 several years ago and didn't even know the other 2 were out until my daughter wanted to check them out from the library.
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.
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.
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.
"What happens next..."
Okay, Now the Series must come to an end.
As usual in this series Ilyana Kadushin is the voice of Bella and for the second time Matt Walters is the voice of Jacob.
These two voices team up very well, and for me the voice of Jacob is a welcome change, because at this point as much as I am now addicted to this series, hearing how perfect some people/ vampires are is becoming just slight tiring
So this story has been split into 3 books. 2 before, 1 after. Before and after what I?ll leave you to figure out.
The only thing I have against this partial story is that the ending fell just a little flat. The first 26 Chapters is the Bella/ Edward Romance, it doesn?t disappoint and it keeps your attention and had me laughing out loud in some places, and then from chapters 27 ? 39 the build up for a really big excellent physical fight starts and it totally sucks you in, and then what I call a political move comes a steals the thunder. It?s not a bad move, but the bloodlust at this point was drawn out in me, and for once in this series, it was not satisfied.
No matter what your feelings about this story are, it still keeps you coming back to it. But for once with this partial audio, I treat almost like an encyclopaedia and on re-listen to the chapters I really enjoy rather then the whole.
I love the twilight series and i think Breaking Dawn is the best one of all. I absolutley love the way it splits into three boks, i think it gives the story some perspective
This is the final chapter of Stephenie Meyer's compelling Twilight Saga that has charmed the hearts of fans the world over. As Bella and Edward attempt to make a life for themselves, they must face the biggest test of all, one which threatens their very survival and will almost certainly separate them from the one thing they can't live without (each other). This is a powerful and fitting conclusion to a truly amazing and inspiring series.
