Description

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.

A waste of my time this wasn't.

For months I'd gone back and forth with myself about whether I was going to read the Twilight novels. But being blind, my only options were to either find them in braille, a medium which I find extremely tedious to be quite frank, or to listen to them. I tried at first to listen to the Library of Congress version, also known as the Talking Book version specifically recorded for us blind folks, but the narrator's voice ruined the story for me. But as is often the case in these situations, the commercially available audiobook was done much better. The story itself was far more interesting than I was expecting, always a plus, but Ilyana Kadushin's narration added just that little bit more to the pie, so to speak. Her smooth, slightly husky voice doesn't seem out of place, particularly when the character speaking is Edward Cullen or Jacob Black. I didn't hear the flatness that another reviewer complained about. I don't think they could have picked a better narrator unless perhaps it were Stephenie Meyer herself. Needless to say I'm glad I spent the two credits on this program, although I'll say right here and now that I messed up my sleep cycle for the next several weeks reading the entire series.

My Not-So-Guilty Pleasure

At this point everyone knows what Twilight is about and very little needs to be said about the characters or plot. What does need to be mentioned, though, is Ilyana Kadushin's unparalleled performance as Bella. After listening to this book I had a hard time believing Kristen Stewart's performance in the films. She just falls short of what Ilyana is able to accomplish here. Fantastic.

Vamped up twist of love and compassion

This book was great! I listened for hours because I couldn't put it away. It's an excellent flashback to high school for a 30 something book lover. I initially listened to review the content for my niece, but now I'm hooked and will finish the series. It's vampire lore without all of the descriptive gory details. Vampires with compassion! Can't wait to download the next one!

Compelling listening

For some reason this very simple and beautifully written story was very hard to put down. I am an older reader and have "read" many excellent audio books and this is one is such a lovely story with an excellent narrater and highly recommended.

True Vampire Romance...

First off, I would like to say how I have always been fascinated with vampire lore and the mere thought of undead creatures that live by night and feed on the blood of others. With that said, Twilight was a bit unexpected in that the book's main focus was about true love found between a mortal girl and a vampire. I was easily pulled into Stephenie Meyer's world of Forks, Washington where most of the story takes place. The author develops the characters very will and goes to great lengths to explain and point out vampire strengths as compared to humans. Twilight revolves around a sea of anger, inner conflict, and unexpected, undying love that will keep you listening into the late hours of the night. Personally, I loved this book!

P.S. For those of you who are looking for just another vampire slasher, check out Anne Rice's books. This one would not be for you; however, if you want a great vampire love story, I suggest checking it out.

Suprisingly good

Book review: I watched the movie first, and reading the book filled in all the gaps in details that wasn't covered on film. It's very mild (PG wise), but well written, and really leaves you wanting more. Some phrases are extremely repetitious, and I did get tired of hearing how 'perfect' Edward was. If you're an adult and looking for a little more heat with the same subject matter (vampires/supernaturals) try the Sookie Stackhouse novels.
Narrator review: After getting used to Kristen Stewart it took my ears some time warm up to Ms. Kadushin, but after reading the entire series, Bella wouldn't be right read by someone else.

Wow

I am not a teenager. I do not read fiction. I did end up reading all four books and loved them! I do not want to leave this world. Which is why I am rereading breaking dawn. So..Waiting for Midnight Sun! The movie does not do this book justice and the narrator of this was awesome. I am looking for more books with her as the narrator!

love that's sweet and deadly...

I was pretty late to jump on the Stephenie Meyer bandwagon, but luckily when i did all three of her books were available on Audible! After listening to Twilight i couldn't get the characters out of my head... the love story is beautiful and sweet, and the tension between love and blood-thirst is dizzying... WARNING: you WILL fall in love with these characters, so be prepared to read all three books in rapid succession!

bloodsucking but not literature

I enjoyed this book a little too much. I actually feel guilty. It's a little bit immature and predictable but a nice example of the gothic romance type of vampire fiction popular today. . So it's not a literary masterpiece - so what. Lighten up and practice a little escapism if you like. I've read worse.

Bad narrator

I love the book but the narrator isn't good. She doesn't change her voice for any of the characters so they all sound the exact same. It gets hard to keep up with who is talking. It also makes it hard to really get immersed in the story.

recycled romance

Human girl meets vampire boy - well it wasn't like I was looking for originality when turning to Stephenie Meyer; just some good old dark romance. However, the plot is utterly predictable and all secondary characters remain underdeveloped stereotypes. Looking at the main cast makes me think that maybe that is a good thing: Bella (!) - the shockingly old-fashioned heroine - surrenders herself as unconditionally to the whims of her smart-alec vamp-boyfriend as to her 'fate'. I believe she should be smacked of the head with a bulb of garlic until she can say 'emancipation'. Edward - the broody, all-knowing, luminous hero - clearly had the last bit of humanity sucked out of him, when he was transformed into the peny-dreadful version of a victorian Darcy by his vampire sire. Give me postmodern Buffy any day over this mothy tale!

Wunderbar! Romantisch und Vampirisch!

Jedem Vampirfan kann ich diese Bücher nur empfehlen. Ich habe das Buch gelesen und mir danach das Hörbuch zugelegt und bin von letzterem genauso begeistert, wie von der Version zum Selberlesen. Die Charaktere wurden von der Sprecherin perfekt eingefangen und man lauscht gebannt und hingerissen. Ein muss für alle Vampirfans und für die Bella und Edward-Fans sowieso.

Mitreißende Story, super Sprecherin

Ich war zunächst etwas skeptisch, ob ich mir das Hörbuch kaufen sollte.
Ich habe die Bücher auf deutsch regelrecht verschlungen und lese gerade die englischen Originale, tolle Story also, keine Frage.
Leider habe ich die Erfahrung gemacht, dass englische Hörbücher meist von Sprechern gelesen werden, die extremes british english sprechen, was ich überhaupt nicht mag, häufig höre ich dann die Bücher nicht mal zu Ende, einfach weil mich der Sprecher irgendwann nervt.
Der totale Gegensatz dazu ist Ilyana Kadushin. Ich bin einfach nur begeistert, angenehme Stimme, deutliche Aussprache, was natürlich jeden sehr zu gute kommt, dessen Muttersprache nicht Englisch ist. Sie hat für mich vom ersten Wort an einfach zur Hauptfigur Bella gepasst, sie gibt die ganze Story glaubwürdig wieder, ich konnte mich einfach in die Geschichte 'reinfallen' lassen -- solche Hörbücher liebe ich

Super, aber gewöhnungsbedürftig

Ilyana Kadushin liest wirklich absolut klasse, lediglich die Stimme ist schwer mit der 17-jährigen Bella unter einen Hut zu bringen. Wenn man sich aber erst mal an die Leserin gewöhnt hat, kommt man wirklich in den Genuss eines Hörvergnügens.

Die Story ist und bleibt natürlich super. In der ungekürzten Originalversion für mich also schon fast ein MUSS. Über den Inhalt möchte ich daher auch nichts verraten. Da sollte erst einmal die Inhaltsangabe genügen.

Die Leserin spricht wunderbar klares und einfach verständliches Englisch. Auch tempotechnisch hatte ich nie ein Problem zu folgen. Allerdings hatte ich vorher die Bücher bereits auf Englisch gelesen und das erste Kapitel heruntergeladen, wusste somit zumindest über den "Schwierigkeitsgrad" bescheid. Mit halbwegs gutem Schulenglisch dürfte es also keine große Herausforderung sein.

So weit so gut. Ich für meinen Teil habe aber eindeutig mehr "Kapitel" vermisst. Also diese "Sprünge", die man beim Vorspulen machen kann. Über eine Stunde Abstand fand ich da schon recht unpraktisch. Falls man doch mal ohne Sleep-Timer einschlafen sollte, gestaltet sich die Suche nach Anschluss dann doch recht schwierig. Diese Kapitel-Vorspul-Funktion war da für mich von wenig Nutzen.

Suchtfacktor... hoch!

Dieses hier war meine erste Vampir-Romanze und sie hat mich total in ihren Bann geschlagen. Also, für jeden, der eine romantische Geschichte sucht, sehr gut geeignet. Die Stimmung ist total intensiv und die Spannung zwischen Edward und Bella fühlbar.

Negativ würde ich aus einer gewissen Distanz bemerken, dass die Charaktere nicht gerade komplex sind. Bella mit ihrer schlechten Laune geht einem manchmal etwas auf die Nerven und Edward ist fast zu überirdisch perfekt. Die Vampire-Academy Bücher finde ich da noch vielseitiger, die Figuren komplexer und die Vampir-Gesellschaft weniger schwarz/weiß. Egal, wer was schönes zum Träumen sucht, ist hier super bedient und muss sich von solch kritischem Gemuffel nicht abschrecken lassen.

For Girls only

Romantic story, endless love. Story unimportant. Take care: this story is for girls (also older girls) only. I love it, could not stop listen it, dreamed the whole time. I heard all 4 books in one week (and this after my work!!). By the way: the reader is brilliant.

couldn't stop listening

I'm not a fan of vampir stories. But I really loved this one. It's different from all vampir stories I knew before. I really like Stephenie Meyer's way of writing and Ilyana Kadushin does a gorgeous job.
I couldn't stop listening until I had finished this audio book.
