A Classic, Masterpiece.
One of the Best written Novels ever, my wife got me into it. And since I am secure w/ my manhood ;] & I don't let society dictate what's okay for me to like, at what age(I'm 35). I recognized a great,detail story, by a very talented writer. I like how Stephenie Meyer goes into detail about how the Indian tribes first became shape-shifters, aka "Wolves". She makes the idea of Vampires & Wolves seem like it could really be true. Not the same old, Hollywood , vampires "burn-up in the sun, steak in the heart,sleep in a coffin etc. etc." Or Werewolves bite you,turn you into wolf-man,and watch out for full moons,silver bullets,etc.etc. Don't get me wrong,that's been done well a couple of times,but this is a way more believable story to me. And it's good for a reason. Honestly, The movies DONT do it ANY justice, but has a movie ever done a book justice? but I still watch them w/ my wife. Seriously, I recommend these books to ANY one that's secure w/ themselves :) It's almost as good as the "GEARS OF WAR" story. (almost) But,that a whole other story ;]Read full review
I am a busy on the go mother who is never home and doesn't have time to sit and read a book. I absolutely love the movies and wanted to read the books, but just don't have the time. I saw these and couldn't resist, and I'm glad I didn't. I keep them in the car and listen everytime I'm driving. Ilyana Kadushin reads them wonderfully, the first book she wasn't quite as into it, but the other ones she really emphasizes things and makes you fall into it! I love the books and the movies and now I can't wait for the last 2 Breaking Dawn movies to be out! Twimom
wonderful book series!
I had originally watched the first twillight movie (after it had been out a long time) and really enjoyed the movie, but had been persuaded by many to read the books b/c it was so much more indepth info that was gleened through the books that isn't seen in the movie(s).....and were they ever right. After I rented the series from the library to "read" in audiobook format I knew I had to have this series for myself. I have already relistened to the new moon and eclipse books in preparation for the next movies! Highly recommended to adults. Think youth can be fine with the books as long as parental influence is involved with assisting teens on these books.
Twilight Saga on CD
I purchased these books on CD because even though I have read the books to many times to count I wanted to be able to listen to them while I do my beading. It is really great to be able to do two things I love at the same time. I have also found that when I listen to the CD's I have heard parts that I did not remember reading. I will end by saying that I love the books on CD and I am so glad I purchased them.
Awesome Series / Flawless Flow
It is a perfect series to listen to on an old fashioned car trip or back & forth to work - transition from one book to the next works seamlessly - the characters are extremely believable - the plots work well - by the end of Breaking Dawn you are wanting more about Edward/Bella/Jake & wondering what happens w/Renesmae and her beloved - do Alice/Jasper marry? Seriously, Ms. Meyer - we want more!
