I liked the way all the characters came together in the end and how all the little sub-stories were rounded up well. I know it's a pretty obvious conclusion but it's still well written and keeps you wondering what else can stand in the way of there happily ever after.
I like the part where Jacob imprints on Renesmae as it ties everyone together and makes sense of the whole 'relationship'.
IIyana Kadushin does a good Bella.
Oh so much, I am totally obsessed with the Twilight Saga, and I'm not a teenager! Breaking Dawn didn't disappoint, the narration is wonderful! I loved everything, the romance, great action, all of the great characters and of course the Volturi!
I wouldn't, all the Twilight books are unique to me.
Only the Twilight Saga and they are brilliant! They portray the characters perfectly.
Having enjoyed the previous 3 books I hoped for a satisfying conclusion but was sadly disappointed.
There was some very lazy writing such as how Charlie would respond to Bella being a vampire (this was one aspect I was looking forward too but it was handled poorly).
Additionally the ending is remarkably dull and very little happens. A poor conclusion to a reasonably good series of books.
I am 37 years old and have never read a book before just because after 2 or 3 pages I get bored and give up but right from the very first Twilight series book i could not stop reading. Ive stayed up all through the night and had to keep going till it was finished Ive now watched the film too and its the best story EVER. Loved it PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make more!!
the people who narrated the book Ilyana Kadushin & Matt Walters read the book perfectly without over acting. The story was very enjoyable to listen to even though I was hoping for more action at the end of the book with a fight like with the previous stories. Apart from that the end of the story was ok.
With all the bad reviews I have read about this audiobook I must say that I dont understand why people don't like it???? There is nothing wrong with the voices what so ever. Yes it is in an American accent but the characters are american so that sould be expected!!!! It's a must buy if you are a fan of the Twilight saga!!!! 5 out of 5 is my rating
I enjoyed the whole series of books and this final installment pulls together all the plot elements both entertainingly and satisfactorily. I'm almost sorry to see it end, although I think it was the right time. If you enjoyed the previous three books then this should not disappoint in quality. If you have not read any of the books, then I would recommend them as a series on the basis that they are all enjoyable books in their own right, but also that the last book does not let the whole series down, as I have experienced with other series in the past. The narrator has done an excellent job throughout the whole series.
After enjoying the other audio's in this series it was inevitable that I would download this one. I enjoy happy endings and on that level this book did not disappoint, in fact it was a little to saccharine sweet even for my taste. I would not listen to this as a stand alone book despite the excellent narration. However, for those who have read the other books do not let that put you off. If you have grown attached to the characters in the other books you will feel this is a nice place to say farewell to them.
I don't know how many times I can listen or read this whole series of books. Even though it's supposed to be a teens story, it has a depth in the characters that gives it a meaning to all who read it. The only bad thing about the book is, I want more. I want to know what happens after the story ends.
The idea of two narrators for the different storylines is genius, one for Bellas and one for Jacobs story.
I love it!
the story continues...
unfortunatly so does the whining of bella.
as it comes to an end will bella finaly become a vampire....
i stopped caring at book 2.
also these books have some strange veiws on finding your true love!!!.... to fall in love with children is a very odd concept and on the borderline of something oh so wrong..
now i know its not ment in any sexal way, but to some pervs out there this could be seen as a green light. these books had so much promise and fail to deliver on all accounts.The plot of these books has so many holes its like reading a pin Cushion. and just as exciting.
If you did liked these, please try Kelley Armstrong's books, they start with bitten and her writing style is so much better. unfortunatly audible uk only has The Awakening: Darkest Powers, Book 2 (Unabridged) which as it says is part 2 and is aimed at kids.
alternatly the queen of vampie writing... anne rice, this is how a story told from a vampires point of veiw should be.
im sure that the other reveiws out there will sway you into reading this but all i can say is.. dont belive the hype!
