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.

    "Loved everything!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Twilight to be better than the print version?

    I would considered them to be equal.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Twilight?

    When Bella and Edward were in the meadow.


    Which character – as performed by Ilyana Kadushin – was your favorite?

    There were two characters that stood out they were Bella and Edward. IIyana changed her voice reflection when reading their words and thoughts. That was my favorite part of llyana's work.


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

    Yes

    "Narrator Blah!!"
    If you could sum up Twilight in three words, what would they be?

    youth I wanted


    Would you be willing to try another one of Ilyana Kadushin’s performances?

    NO!!


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

    Should have been.


    Any additional comments?

    I am a Twilight junkie. So I do not like that the fact that I did not enjoy this listening. Kadushins reading was beyond lacking. No feeling. No emotion. Ben Stein could have done better.

    "So descriptive!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, this is a must listen! The characters feel so real, and you get sucked into their world!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love Bella. She is so interesting - mysterious and an open book at the same time!


    What about Ilyana Kadushin’s performance did you like?

    She did a great job making me feel like SHE really was Bella's voice, and not just the narrator.

    "Love this book!!"
    What would have made Twilight better?

    Cannot tolerate the performance. She put her own spin on the characters and makes them seem childish and immature. I love the book and the series and it is not how I would of read it to someone else.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Edward Cullen - complex character. He is a vampire who wants to be good but will never see himself as anything but a monster. he is so much more than that. If you have ever met your soul mate you can relate to their story.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Ilyana Kadushin’s performances?

    Absolutely not


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I was moved by the love they have for each other - they want to be together through very defining differences and they find a way to make it work.

    "Love any and all vampire books."
    Would you listen to Twilight again? Why?

    I would listen to it over and over . I also have the movies.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    It is extremely hard to decide which characters are my favorite. Since I like vampires it would have to be Edward and the Cullen family.


    Have you listened to any of Ilyana Kadushin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The only Ilyana Kadushin's performances I have listen to is the Twilight series, so I have nothing to compare it to.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes I laughed, I cried but It didnot stop me from reading the whole series.

    "Sooo.....I can finally say that I read "Twilight'"

    ....The book was a pretty good read all except for the annoying and cloying instances of "I love you" and "don't leave me" said about 10,000 times too many....I was okay with it at first but then it just got on my nerves each time it was said.........can you say OVERKILL.....the story line is intriguing though and I am willing to finish the series to see where it will lead.............I just hope that the I can stomach the "love" issue.....and that is hard for me to say since I am a very romantic and lovey person.....I just know when to stop when it's enough..... : )

    "Better then the Movie!!!"

    If you have not heard of this book or the Movie, then you have been living in a cave in a super remote part of the planet. So I don't think a review is needed. The movies are just bad.. No other way to put it. The acting is atrocious, and the story does not convert well to film. But the books are absolutely amazing. I don't even know why, the story while good does not account for the magic I feel when I read this saga.. I don't know what kind of magic Myers has with words, but I sure wish she would put some more into books. THERE IS A REASON THAT MILLIONS ARE IN LOVE WITH THIS SAGA!!! The audio is perfect, and I enjoyed it so much more then reading it myself. Download today, and ENJOY!! You will not regret it..

    "I amazed at how close the movie was to the book"
    What made the experience of listening to Twilight the most enjoyable?

    I was so in love with the movie and to actually have the story of the book and the discriptions of the characters be so on point was refreshing after being disappointed by the vampire diaries.


    What other book might you compare Twilight to and why?

    I can't compare it to any. This is very buble gum pop compared to my other vamp titles.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narrator was very fitting for the voice of Bella, but other characters...no.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I was just satisfied.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is very buble gum pop to me. But I love it because, it doesn't hurt to feel like your a 14year old in highschool again and this is what this book brought back for me... a smile of a teenager!
