Publisher's Summary

About three things I was certain.

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.

    "Utterly Transformed My Commute"

    I commute to work, about 40 minutes each way, and love to listen to audio books. Unfortunately, I'm very picky and if the narrator doesn't do a great job and transport me into the story (or if the story sucks) I stop listening and turn on music. I admit to enjoying the Twilight movies and my friend was able to get me to read the first 2 books. I can be a bit of a speed reader if I'm really interested in what happens next, so it took me 3 days to read the 2 books but I felt like I was missing a lot. This audio book was fantastic. I was instantly transported to Forks each time I drove to and from work. I even began listening on my days off. Now, maybe a month later, I just downloaded the 4th book, and amazing series with a terrific narrator!!

    "Took me a bit to get use to the narrator..."

    At first the narrator of this audiobook took a while for me to get use to...but now I love her. I guess the reason it took a while is because at first I was comparing her voice to that of Kristen Stewart. And even though I read the book before seeing the movie, and then listened to this, I can say that hearing it read aloud was like reading it all over again. I could see different images than when I read it myself. It was great. The author just sounds older than we all know Bella is, which is where it threw me.

I just -WISHED -- that Stephenie Meyer would write the Book Midnight Sun finished all about Edward's part, that is as much , if not even the most best of them all I love reading the draft she has on her webside!!! I just hope she will write Midnight Sun finished !!!

    "Awesome story, irritating narrator."

    I agree that the narrator's voice is extremely irritating on some parts. Especially when she actually says "BELLA", she over enunciates it. But I do love the story to bits. I just wish they could remake this audio book series with a different voice.

    "wonderful story"

    Wonderful story, the whole series. I did not like the narrator at first, but you get use to her. Great story and I had refused to read or listen, because I did not think I would like a story about vampires. Basically are really good love story.

    "Great books, unfortunate choice for narration."

    The choice of narrator can make all the difference in the world and I am sorry to say they really blew it with the choice of narrator for the entire Twilight Saga series. This series was my very first experience with audiobooks. Having now completed the whole series (67 hours of narration collectively), I can honestly say that loved everything about the story and Stephenie Meyer's writing. However, the narrator's voice and speech patterns (I believe her name is Ilyana Kadushin) almost made me quit before completing first book. Listening to her reminded me of a bratty, whiny teenage "valley girl", and every single time she would mention her own name, "Bella"... ugh, it just made me cringe. I cannot imaging this would have been Meyer's choice, she could not possibly have wanted Bella to speak that way. Too bad, otherwise I really enjoyed the books.

    "Read the book, don't get the audio"

    I've read the books and they are great, the audio however is terrible. I couldn't even stand to listen to the samples!

    "Interesting"

    Stephenie Meyer did a wonderful job in this book painting the picture of a teenager, Bella, in a small town and falling in love with a vampire. Unfortunately, the narrator IIyana manages to make this boring and bland. I love this book and the way it grabbed my attention, but when I listen to it I start drifting off because the narrator never managed to do the same.
