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.

    "I'm hooked!"

    It's been a really long time since I've been so absorbed into a book... I couldn't put down the ipod and listened to it in record time. It's full of mind-boggling tension, fun and romance. I don't think the narrator could really capture the voices of the characters to the full-extent, but the story is not diminished by that. This is definitely worth the 2 credits.

    "Couldn't put it down"

    The story is a fantastic love story. I was hooked. The narrator was wonderful. I have suggested this book to everyone I come in contact with and they all agreed the story is great. It has everything action, romance and humor. I would listen and have listened over and over. Worth it cover to cover.

    "Great!"

    I am listening to the series for the SECOND time and finding things I had forgotten or missed the first time. I am 39 years old and maybe remembering my "younger, wilder" days and maybe this is why I am really enjoying the books so much but I do think they are great. I am having trouble finding another series I want to listen to that I think I will enjoy as much. One thing I like about the books is there is not a lot of cursing and no long drawn out explicit sex scenes that would embarrass me even in my car driving by myself! I am really looking forward to Midnight Sun coming out...eventually...hopefully.

    "Perfect Torture"

    As an adult, I was hesitant to get this book. Several of my friends had recommended it. But I couldn't get past the 'young adult' thing. Boy, am I glad I did. This is one of the sexiest books I've ever read. Anyone who likes a good romance will love this book.

    "Delightful, absolutley delightful ~"

    Great characters, nicely narrated, absolutley one of those books that you could not put down (or turn off until you had gone cover to cover in one listen).
    Definatley addicting, I will have to purchase the next book in the 4 part saga.

    "fun but a little overhyped"

    I had to read this twice to really get into it. Entertaining, but Bella drives me NUTS can we say true victorian heroine, I got a little sick of the damsal in distress, and Edward was a wee bit controling. Come on get a back bone. But have hope, the series does get better, and it is fun.

    "Predictable but interesting"

    I'm a lover of young adult literature, so I was excited to embark on this novel since I've heard so much about it in the press. I think, overall, the story is a good one. It was a little contrived in some parts, and I think the author could have made it a little darker. The actual fight between vampires is just glossed over. There is too much time spent in the beginning, establishing the Bella's meeting of Edward. I feel this could be quickened.

    "Surprised"

    I am 57 and was concerned that this was a book for teens. I love anything about vampires so I gave it a try. I was on vacation and was do happy to have the time to listen each day. I look forward to the next 2. The narrator is great and that makes the world of difference.

    "Vampires are cool!"

    I listened to this book, not realizing it was a 'young adult' fiction and loved it. I gave it to my daughter to read and she's hooked. Its great to have a series of books that we can both read and discuss together.
