Breaking Dawn is my favourite of the books, it isn't going to the extremes concerning the plot as it is about a coming to age story of a girl in love with a vampire and a wolf. I find Walters impressions of a female voice quite amusing and it made me giggle a few times but it never deferred from the openness and angst of all the characters. I am disappointed that people who are ready to listen to a story concerning mythical creatures and legends are perfectly happy to dismiss the ending of the plot altogether. There is a reason why it's called fiction. Over all a very good read and i find myself hardly picking up the book any more, prefering to listen instead.
I am a Wife, a Mum and a Grandma. I am also strong willed and wilfil at times. I have worked all my life and drempt for wining the lottery
I would recommend the series - I had not watched any of the films as with the hype made me ambivalent but I decided to give the original book a chance. So glad I did.
I love all three of the main characters and they are so well written that you can read the development of their emotions. Even the non-central characters are well written and developed. I really like Edward and the internal turmoil he is going through - the way he is prepared to release Bella if that is for the best because he loves her but also prepared to fight to the very end if that is what is needed. I also love his complete trust.
I know it is very sentimental but I loved the wedding and ached at Jacobs reaction. I really felt for him but loved the solid commitment made by the married couple.
I cried a few times but during the stand-off when Bella and Edward were saying goodbye to their child made my heartache.
I am so glad this series ended correctly. Lots of turmoil and stress but things do work out in the end with one or two twists.
I recently read a well-known thirteen book series which didn't conclude correctly and caused me stress after investing many hours in the story and characters but The Twilight Series was one of the best thing I have read this year. I will not bother to watch the films as the actors never look the way I picture the characters in my imagination.
Well worth reading.
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 read award winning and thought hmm give it a go.
It was ear vomit.
The story was all padding leading up to an enormous battle at the end, both sides decided wasnt worth the effort went home and the book ended.
Unless you enjoy very long detailed descriptions of the clothes vampires wear get something else Perdido street station was the best ive heard in a while and I dont usually go for that sort of thing
This is a guilty pleasure of mine. There's holes in the plot and it is make-believe in the extreme, but that's ok. I listen to these books every so often when walking the dog, easy listening, although the narrator's voice is quite irritating, you do get over it eventually
This is the book with a different gender,love reading the whole series of book,now I want the listening which is Interesting.love the characters.
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.
"It was just great fun listening to this story"
I would first excuse me for how much of fiction this story is and than tell them that I read one book after another!
Yes I would.
It is very well read, this makes already half the pleasure. And it is a very romantic story, very much a chick-lit.
