I'm hooked (finally!)

STORY (supernatural romance) - Eclipse is Book 3 of a four-book series. I'm a bit older than the target audience and not a fan of supernatural romances, but I've persevered listening to this series in order even though I've been pretty bored. Multiple mega-hit movies and 28,071 Audible listeners rating the series 4.4 overall means something, right?

The series is famous for it's human-vampire-werewolf love triangle, but the werewolf love interest doesn't really become a factor till the end of this book -- after about 35 hours of total listening time. I'm sure I'm a minority here, but I think this would have been better if it had been condensed to about half the total time investment. That said, I'm hooked by the cliffhanger at the end of this book, and I'm probably going to buy the final one soon, rather than waiting for a sale as I usually do!

PERFORMANCE - It's okay. She doesn't try to distinguish between male and female voices at all, which sometimes is confusing. There is a male narrator who reads a small bit at the beginning and an epilogue at the end, conveying Jacob's perspective.

OVERALL - The target audience is high school and college girls, and it's perfect for them. There's no cursing or sex, although there is lots of kissing and talk about when they'll actually go further. There's talk about vampire blood-sucking but I don't think much of that actually happens, and a small amount of violence. You must listen to all four books in order, but think about the time investment. As an adult, I can't say it's worth it till I hear Book 4 and see how everything ends.

Twilight Series

Stunning...I have had many late late nights lying in the dark beside my sweetie with earphones plugged in...I was completely captured by the story that takes place (from Forks to Italy) from the first few chapters of Twilight through New Moon & now Eclipse. My heart broke with Bella's and her pain reminded me of my own first love ended..I am completely entranced with the entire cast of characters in this series. Ms. Meyers has skillfully built so many fascets into each one that with very little imagination entire books could be written about each life...or should I say..life ended.. Hahaha!
2008? That is when the next book is due to be released? I, for one, cannot wait.

Continues to Please

Stephenie Meyer has created a world and characters that draw you in. It kept my attention and she always leaves you wanting to see what will happen next. Twilight was probable the best written of the three I have either read or listened to so far but Eclipse provided more action and tied together many of the subplots. The only thing I didn't like about listening to the book was the narration. I guess when you read a book you get a mental picture in your head of what the characters look like and what they sound like and having one person provide the voice for almost all of the characters at times was a little distracting. I like listening to books but in this case I started out reading the first two books then downloaded this one, so that might be the reason why I didn't care for the narration. Anyway it was a really good book and I would encourage anyone who liked the first book to buy this book. The sound quality was very good and when I downloaded it to my MP3 player I had not problems listening to it and the thing I really liked was the fact that it somehow bookmarks where I stopped listening so it picked right back up where I left off even if I skipped to music or a movie and then went back to the book.

We need a man's voice for the male characters

I have read the books twice and seen the movie once. Stephenie Meyer is a very good writer and I am disappointed that she is no longer writing. This particular book in the saga is my least favorite because I felt that too much attention was given to the wolves and Jacob in particular. I felt that he was a distraction and when reading it the first time I didn't understand the need for his character.
To make matters worse the narrator did not, could not read males voices. It was distracting. Especially in Edward's case.

what is not to love....

Although I read all the books I wanted them on audio as well, even though this book is my least fav of the 4 as I felt it was oh so drawn out, and Bella seemed be very weak and whiny in this book, the narration was great,I like the fact that Jacob caracter was narrated by a male voice. I had an easier time listening than I did reading it..

Stephenie Meyer Doesn't let you down

The story just keeps building. I definately recommend listening to this 3rd book. Vampires, werewolves, humans, romance, mystery and action. Can't wait for the next one!

amazing piece of literature

I know i am not the intended audience for this book but even though am a teen male i loved it. I started reading Twilight without knowing that it was a girls series. Over time i caught on but i kept on reading because i was so gripped. When i read Eclispe i felt that the way that Stephanie Meyer blended 3 such different charecters lives together was brillant and by the time i had read a hundred pages i was enthralled. She also made me really get into these books like she made me personally hate Jacob with a passion, really like Edward and bella. This series is one of my favorite of all time and i hope that other people find my reccomendation helpful.

Pretty Good

I really loved the switch between the two narrators as the story changed points of view.

Dislike narrator

I have always been a fan of this series, but the narrator does not capture the personalities of the characters right. If you have not read the actual books, this might turn you off the series.

Eclipse

This is the third chapter of Edward and Bella's story. As hostilities between the vampires and werewolves increase, Bella finds herself caught between Edward, her vampire lover and her best friend, the werewolf Jacob. Jacob is determined to have Bella for his own while Edward is equally determine to hang onto her. When a threat strikes that effects both vampires and werewolves alike, it seems impossible that this will not end in tears.
