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.

I have been married to my wonderful husband for almost 30 years. I love reading - romance, adventure... Captain Blood is really great!
Cannot tolerate the performance. She put her own spin on the characters and makes them seem childish and immature. I love the book and the series and it is not how I would of read it to someone else.
Edward Cullen - complex character. He is a vampire who wants to be good but will never see himself as anything but a monster. he is so much more than that. If you have ever met your soul mate you can relate to their story.
I was moved by the love they have for each other - they want to be together through very defining differences and they find a way to make it work.
I would listen to it over and over . I also have the movies.
It is extremely hard to decide which characters are my favorite. Since I like vampires it would have to be Edward and the Cullen family.
The only Ilyana Kadushin's performances I have listen to is the Twilight series, so I have nothing to compare it to.
Yes I laughed, I cried but It didnot stop me from reading the whole series.
....The book was a pretty good read all except for the annoying and cloying instances of "I love you" and "don't leave me" said about 10,000 times too many....I was okay with it at first but then it just got on my nerves each time it was said.........can you say OVERKILL.....the story line is intriguing though and I am willing to finish the series to see where it will lead.............I just hope that the I can stomach the "love" issue.....and that is hard for me to say since I am a very romantic and lovey person.....I just know when to stop when it's enough..... : )
If you have not heard of this book or the Movie, then you have been living in a cave in a super remote part of the planet. So I don't think a review is needed. The movies are just bad.. No other way to put it. The acting is atrocious, and the story does not convert well to film. But the books are absolutely amazing. I don't even know why, the story while good does not account for the magic I feel when I read this saga.. I don't know what kind of magic Myers has with words, but I sure wish she would put some more into books. THERE IS A REASON THAT MILLIONS ARE IN LOVE WITH THIS SAGA!!! The audio is perfect, and I enjoyed it so much more then reading it myself. Download today, and ENJOY!! You will not regret it..
Vampires, WereWolves, Westerns, Fae...I love all the bloody weird!
I was so in love with the movie and to actually have the story of the book and the discriptions of the characters be so on point was refreshing after being disappointed by the vampire diaries.
I can't compare it to any. This is very buble gum pop compared to my other vamp titles.
The narrator was very fitting for the voice of Bella, but other characters...no.
I was just satisfied.
This book is very buble gum pop to me. But I love it because, it doesn't hurt to feel like your a 14year old in highschool again and this is what this book brought back for me... a smile of a teenager!
I consider both to be favorites.
The audio version was great!
I have not listened to any, only Twilight Series and they are all very good. I would certainly listen to others.
The entire book moved me.
Sure, it was entertaining!
I have only listened to the Twilight Series but I love her performances!!
I am a middle-aged reader, and I thought this book was incredible. I found it hard to stop listening, and in fact, I ended up listening to it again. I loved the narrator's voice for this book. I thought it matched the characters perfectly.
I am a Twilight fan to begin with. I have read the books quite a few times, and watched the movie multiple times. This is my first audio book, and I have to say, as critical as I am when it comes to Twilight, I thought the performance was excellent. I have no complaints with this audio book at all.
I thought she did a wonderful job with Twilight. If she has read any other books that I might order, I would not hesitate to order.
Hearing it and invisioning the characters as you see them in your mind. The book is so well written and the movie doesn't even come close. You can smell flowers, feel the warmth, heartbreak and conflict the surrounds Edward, Bella and Jacob.
I was on the edge of my set when Bella was in the alley surrounded by the four drunk guys.
I loved all the Characters. She was able to put a unique spin on each voice to make them individuals. would love to hear more of her.
Way better than the movie. Get the book first!
