First, Edward was a vampire.
Second, there was a part of him, and I didn't know how dominant that part might be, that thirsted for my blood.
And Third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him.
Isabella Swan's move to Forks, a small, perpetually rainy town in Washington, could have been the most boring move she ever made. But once she meets the mysterious and alluring Edward Cullen, Isabella's life takes a thrilling and terrifying turn. Up until now, Edward has managed to keep his vampire identity a secret in the small community he lives in, but now nobody is safe, especially Isabella, the person Edward holds most dear. The lovers find themselves balanced precariously on the point of a knife, between desire and danger.
Deeply sensuous and extraordinarily suspenseful, Twilight captures the struggle between defying our instincts and satisfying our desires. This is a love story with bite.
Don't miss the other titles in the Twilight Saga.

Ilyana Kadushin does a bang up job of narrating this super series. I LOVE audio books and have come to appreciate the talent it takes to narrate, change voices and persona and so on, and to really make you feel like you are IN the book/story. I loved the books as I read them and I loved them equally as I listened to them. AAA+++
"Hi My name is Ali and I'm an Audible addict." "Hi Ali!"
I was overall impressed with the audio of this book comparing it to others I have from the website. The writing and story line is weak overall. Brainless fluff, but it's a tween book tight? I will continue on with the series.
I simply LOVED this book and the entire series. I have listened multiple times. The first time for shear pleasure but subsequent times to pick up the finer details that I missed. Lots of information along with a great love story. Twilight is a great "base" for the subsequent books. Listening helps bring the character alive. GREAT job on the readers part.
I am 40 years old and cant believe i liked this book. It took a little time to get going but i have been told to hold out for all the series, that it only gets better
The story has an interesting premise, but it goes on and on about how much one teenage girl wants one teenage vampire and vice versa. By the time you get to a point in the book where things are picking up, there's about an hour left. I kept listening, hoping to get beyond the teenage lust, but it just dragged on and on and on to the point of nausea. . .This might be better suited for teenage listeners, which is why I'm sure it starts out as "Audible For Kids". Don't waste your credits if you're an adult.
Seriously, how hard is it for a reader to do a simple google search to learn the pronunciation of the place names in the book?
I think that I would have loved this book in my early 20s and before my introduction to Anne Rice. If you're an Anne Rice fan, you will be sourly disappointed. The story lacks complexity or even true suspense. I finished the book but am not going to listen to the rest of the series.
