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.

This one is not for me

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

This just isn't my type of book. I assume this is what you'd call a paperback romance novel.

Would you ever listen to anything by Stephenie Meyer again?

nope

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Twilight?

They described the guy as shiny.

Saw the movie-fun to hear the book

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. My daughter-in -law told me about the books even before I saw the movies and how she thought I would like reading them. Not sure which is better to see or read first, but enjoyed the extra details in the book.

What other book might you compare Twilight to and why?

First one I have read like this.

Which scene was your favorite?

When she was so confused why Edward was acting so odd when she sat down by him.

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

Nothing extreme, just found I enjoyed reading about movies I have already seen.

I hate to admit it but I love this series.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Edward is interesting I would love to see a serious on him without Bella she is annoying.

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

No but she did a great job.

Any additional comments?

Funny enough I had this in my library before the hype and I did not finish it because it seemed so juvenile but when it got popular I thought I better try again and I so glad I did.

Roped into a Teenage Life

Not the best writing in the world, but I think that is what pulls you into the world from a teenager's perspective so well. I was definitely roped in, and enjoyed the return to my teenage years.

Epic, Teenage Tragedy

What made the experience of listening to Twilight the most enjoyable?

Listening to the book and following along made everything clear. You could understand the emotion better and think while you read. I found that I grasped the story better listening to this audible. Ive read this book about 10 times and find my reading experience is better with the audible.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Twilight?

The bedroom secne has been a huge hit with the media and movie goers. The kiss, talking, and the touch between one another. It was something worth keeping in your brain and heart.

Which scene was your favorite?

My favorite part has been and always will be the resturant scene in the book. This is the first time Edward and Bella open up to eachother. You see the strain that he has for her, and the want she has for him. The barely know eachother and yet their love is capable of so many things in this scene. Shy touching, embarrasing smelling of jackets and admiring the color of your dates sweater. It has fariy tale and everyday life written all over it. The author really touched base on this specific scene with the relationship between Edward and Bella.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

A Thrilling Teenage Movie.. Romeo and Juliet in Modern Day

Any additional comments?

The feeling of this book gives a person not the want to be a vampire, but the want of the connection that Bella and Edward share. This is a true romance novel that has reached to many people of all ages, genders, and knowledge base.

Fantastic

Where does Twilight rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Pretty high. It is such an entertaining love story and all the characters just come to life!

What other book might you compare Twilight to and why?

Dead Until Dark. Same type of story line ... I think this series was written before Ms. Meyer wrote hers.

What does Ilyana Kadushin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She puts a lot of feeling into each character - she makes it "believable" - just what you want to hear.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Edward and Bella, babyeeee!

Any additional comments?

Loved the books. Enjoying the movies .. waiting for part two of the last movie to be released in November. I'm definitely not a teenager, but these stories just take you away, which is just perfect sometimes.
