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.

    "Addicted"

    DON'T pass this book up. Young adult or adult, this book is AMAZING!

    I read this book and found myself completely in love with the characters. The author made it very easy to slip into the shoes of the narrator, Bella.

    From the very first moment that mysterious Edward Cullen enters the story, you'll crave more...more of his looks, more of his voice, and more of his life-saving acts.

    I was fortunate enough to have read this after New Moon (the sequel) was already released, so I could immediately continue this fantastic and thrilling love story.

    "Darkly romantic"

    I REALLY enjoyed this book. Though it seems to have been written to be a Young Adult novel, it is smartly written, and detailed enough to draw in and capture the adult reader as well. I felt connected to Bella's teen angst, and reminded of my own first love by the descriptions of her experiences of Edwards touches, kisses, etc. However it still has the energy and mystique of the world of the vampyre. What a mix the romance and desperation of first love, with the passion and dark excitement of the vampyre genre.

    I cant wait to read the next book, New Moon. Thankfully, Stephenie Meyer has vowed to continue the series.

    "Loved It.."

    I just finished this book today and it left me missing the characters. Edward made me fear him and love him at the same time. Just enough teeth to make you aware of the possiblity of a threat but not enough to gross you out.

    Bravo.....Audible should get more books like this.

    "strictly for the romance novel enthusiasts"

    I didn't get when I purchased this book that it was geared to young adults. This, however, became quickly apparent. I stuck with it as long as I could, but finally gave up. It's honestly not bad, just very simple and a bit obvious. I did enjoy the twist on the standard vampire legends and would have liked to see them explored a little more maturely.

    "Really Good (if you are a teenage girl)"

    This book has a few moments, but it is definitely targeted for teenaged girls (my daughter loved it). Even adult chicks may enjoy this book. As a short story this would be really good, as a novel it is somewhat thin, and the characters do some pretty inconsistent things to further the storyline. Not my cup of tea, but for teen girls an excellent book.

    "Twilight"

    Like I heard before reading Twlight, it is one of those books you can't put down or in this case turn off. I'm a 47 year old woman who reads a lot of contemporary romance, so I liked the plot, characters, and the delivery even though I normally wouldn't pick up a story about vampires. However, I did think it was a little junveile for adult tastes. The story is truely a metaphor for forbidden love, but without much sex. I would highly reccomend this for young readers. Edward, the vampire, is drawn to the new girl at school because of her purity and kindness. She has moved to a small town to live with her father in part because her mother doesn't have time for her. She discovers Edward has super powers that rival her law enforcement father's powers to serve and protect. Edward is dangerous yet beautiful. She seems to chip away his cold, granite like, exterior and find something warm and worthy inside. It is strange to say a story about vampires is sweet, but this one is and it will leave you hungry or should I say thristy for more.

    "Great open to a great story."
    What did you like best about this story?

    Its a good start to a story I have high hopes for... I am really excited for book 2.


    What about Ilyana Kadushin’s performance did you like?

    She did a great job. I really enjoy the performance.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did! Then the next day I immediately started book 2.


    Any additional comments?

    Great open to a great story. Keep an open mind for those more mature readers. Although you will enjoy the story keep in mind it’s not a brilliantly written piece. The story isn’t complex or any hidden mysteries. Everything is pretty straight forward but good regardless. I would say the target is more for teens and young adults. Ready for book two.

    "The narrator saves the day!!"
    Any additional comments?

    If you are buying the audio, then I will assume you already like the book or have at least read reviews so you know that people either love or hate this book. Therefore, I will review the narrator.<br/><br/>I am not a Twilight fan. I have read all four books and found them to be entertaining if you don't go into it expecting great literature or polished writing. But after reading many reviews about how terrible the narrator is, I must put in my two cents. This is my first experience with a GOOD narrator making a so-so book better. Usually it's the other way around - bad narrator ruining a good book. <br/><br/>I was pleasantly surprised with the narration. She actually gives Bella more of a backbone - she plays Bella more assertive than the movie portrayal. And Edward did not come across as sullen as he did on the screen. Do not let the bad reviews of the narration keep you from purchasing this book. I really think the people that gave the bad reviews forgot that the character being portrayed is a teenager. Remember, these actors have only the authors words to work with...frankly I think Ms. Kadushin did a supurb job.

    "Beware not a vampire book"

    My mistake. I love vampire/ware wolf stories. I do not like teenage love stories.

    "Terrific story; fabulous narrator"

    This is a wonderful story. I think it's almost better hearing it read rather than reading it yourself. And the narrator is absolutely fabulous. I fully enjoyed this and highly recommend it to others. Beware, though: it's addictive.
