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.

    "Very good"

    I enjoyed the narration. It took a little getting use to, but she actually did a good job. The story is great, except I find Bella hard to relate to sometimes. She's so helpless at times, and there is a strong undercurrent of co-dependency. I still really like the story, and enjoyed it overall.

    "14 and under"

    I am so sorry to have wasted my money on this book. It is poorly written and very simple. Noone over the age of 14 should read this book. I have only listened to the first half and do not think I will subjuect myself to the second. Please if you are over the age of 14 and curious about all the hype, forget about it, you don't want to hear this book.

    "If you are and adult DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME!!!"

    My daughter convinced me that this was a worthwhile read. I struggled to get through it! If you take out all the time the main character spends describing her vampire boyfriend's physical attributes the book would be one third the length! Also, for the first three quarters any time spent on dialogue is the same conversation over and over... "you should fear me!" AAGGGHHH! A little action at the end goes nowhere in making up for hours of adolescent rambling. I've read more plot and character development in a Babysitter's Club book! Remember those? Yeah, I know what you're thinking. We were 10 when we read those!!!! If you're an adult, don't waste your time with these books. The author owns a thesaurus. Big deal. Sorry oldest daughter.... no sale.

    "they made a movie out of this?"

    I love you Edward, I love you Edward, I love you Edward, I love you Edward.
    Ooh scary vampire.... I love you Edward, I love you Edward,.

    That pretty much sums up the book. A waste of 2 credits and 13 hours.

    "Very good :D"

    I read this not to long ago. I thought it was good, but i don't really like vampires much. I like werewolves though. I kinda thought that Bella was extremely predictable and stupid, but thats what makes it so good :D

    i'd recommend you don't read this book at night if you are younger, just because you might get nightmares ;)

    this is NOT a book for GUYS! guys will think its boring. which it kind of is... for guys that is..

    "Twilight is phenomenal"

    I can't believe how I got into this series. Bella and Edward. Edward and Bella. A love story like no other. The depth of emotion and tension in the book is amazing and kept me listening all night long. the rest of the series is just as addictive.

    "Twilight is Fantastic!"

    The audio version of Twilight is just as enchanting as the book. Beware though...the series is so addicting that you'll be forced to pick up the sequels as soon as possible.
