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.

    "great teen tragic romance"

    The timeless young adult tragic romance is luring and fascinating. Creatively pieced together, i enjoy this book. I personally however could not enjoy the narrator. She spoke clear and had a pretty voice. Thats it. Zero character depictions or even attempts to use tone and depth to bring you into a moment. Real bummer.

    Story
    "Hooked all over again. "

    This is the first time hearing this book, though I did read it years ago. The narrators voice took me awhile to get used to, only because I have seen the movie so many times and was expecting something closer to the actress that played Bella. It is also the first book I have listened to narrated by a woman. Some of the conversations were hard for me to follow because there wasn't a notable difference in the voices between Bella and Edward. However all that said, I loved reliving the story and am moving on to the next book!

    "Not my favorite reader"

    The reader used weird, emotionless voices for most of the story. Kristen Stewart had more emotion in the films.

    "I don't really like the narrator. "

    The book is as ok as is always been. Guilty pleasure from my teen years. The narrator is only just bearable. Any worse and I would have had to turn it off in the first chapter as I did with The Host, though I like that story better.

    "Story is fabulous; Narration was horrendous"
    What did you love best about Twilight?

    The depth of the story.. it's an absolutely fascinating read. I love all of the twilight books. But the narration was so terrible that I just read the books myself. The reading is bad acting at its worst. Inflection was all wrong, and I couldn't stand her rhythm or cadence. And the way she says Bella's name made me cringe. Everything was all wrong. I have never left a negative review before, but this was so bad I had to put it out there. There are many who love the narration .. I don't get it.


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

    Not in a million years.

    "It sucks you in"

    I will admit the first time I listened to this, I got a few hours in, and I had to turn it off. It had nothing to do with the narrator, because she perfectly captures the voices of the various character, but the story was tiring me out.

    But strangely enough over the week, when I didn't listen to it, I kept on thinking about it, wondering how is it going to end, and to remind myself that this is a book for Young Adults not the normal audience of the Christine Feehan or Sherrilyn Kenyon books that I normally read or listen too.

    So a week later I found myself starting from the beginning, and within 2 days I had finished it, and I have gone back to it more times then I can count. Excellently performed it's a story that will suck in you even what you don't want it too.

    "I gave it a fair try"

    Sorry, it's a crap story, poorly written. The reader does her best (she gets the stars) but you can't make a silk purse from a sows ear.

    "Positively moronic"

    I listened to this to see what the hype was about and am appalled. Before anyone protests that this is a 'young adult' book, lets just remember that young adults are not complete morons. Sadly, Stephanie Meyer seems to believe her reader has the vocabulary of a 7 year old. The language is truly awful, the storyline is very questionable and sets a wholly unlikeable and empty character up as a dangerous role model in terms of abusive relationships. Really, don't bother.

    Oh yes, there are some nice twangy guitar bits at the start of each section - presumably because its 'for kids'. Doesn't make up for its rubbishness.

    "Twilight"

    I discovered this wonderful series last year. I bought them on CD initially and spent many sleepless nights caught up in the story and afterwards I bought them as downloads so I could take them on holiday. Twilight is the first of Stephenie Meyer's epic romantic fantasy saga about Bella and her vampire lover Edward. The books have already enjoyed best selling status and I happen to believe they make up the most wonderful romance I have ever read. My imagination and my heart were alike captured from the start. Buy it and lose yourself in this story and its delightful and human characters.

    "Almost exactly the same as the movie"

    Having seen the movie and thoroughly enjoyed it I had to listen to the book. The two tie in almost exactly with very few changes to the plot, which made the listening experience that much richer and more enjoyable as you had concrete images of the descriptions. I can't wait for the rest of the series on film but in the mean time I will just have to make do with the books.

    "more than surprisingly amazed!"

    When I realised I had downloaded a 'kids' book I was mildly annoyed, and the inital focus on 'high school' life filled me with some concern, and if I'm honest it was probably the fact that I listen to several hours in one sitting that got me hooked. The narration is excellent, the story pace fast, and despite some quite exceptional acceptance on the part of the main character Bella I found the story more than captavating - in fact I have listened to it 3 times - something I have never done in many years as an audible regular. If you listen to audible for mindless escapism then this is a winner.
