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.

    "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.

    "Great Book"

    Even though it is a young adult book, I found it very well written and a joy to listen to!

    "Disappointed After All the Hype"

    I expected this to be the same caliber as Harry Potter -- something intended for a younger audience, but still very enjoyable for adults. While the take on vampires is a clever idea, the longing that the main protagonists feel for one another is overdone and too dramatic, and Bella especially is unrealistically grown up -- as though she has no trace of "typical teenager" in her. I have no interest in reading on in the series. Perhaps I would have liked it better when comparing it to Sweet Valley High and Nancy Drew in my teenage years.

    "This is a child's book."

    In my case I didn't like it because I kept yelling at Bella that this whole situation was wrong. For all of you who love this story I understand why, but there are not any guys that are over 100 years old that you would have the desire to fall in love with that hard.

    "Twilight narrator"

    The narrator's voice for the Twilight series has absolutely no relation to Bella's character. Her voice and cadence are completely wrong, like having Martin Scorcese read a Jane Austen novel. Just read the books, they are so much better that way.

    "Loved it!"

    I am 42 and still found the story very enjoyable. I didn't want to stop listening. Sure, I would have prefered that things got a little more... adult. However, I enjoyed it so much that I am moving on to the second book in the saga and happily anticipting Bella's story to continue to unfold. Oh! I am not sure why one reviewer found the narrators voice unpleasant. I happened to LOVE the narrators voice.

    "I miss him when he's gone..."

    I try to read everything that my daughter reads so that we have things to talk about. I am so glad she gave in to peer pressure at school and read this series. I enjoyed the trip to Washington a little too much. Now that i've finished the first three, I miss Jacob... I hope he comes back to me in the next book. Don't miss this series, it's too much fun.
