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.
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.
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 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
Breaking Dawn was propably my least favourite out of the whole series. My favourite was definitely Eclipse! I loved the whole Warewolf/Vampire/Human love triangle. In some ways I agree with another reviewer's comment on leaving the series as a trio. But I think a conclusion of this sort was necessary. At the end I was sad to say goodbye to all the characters and now am eagerly awaiting all the films!
Had heard a lot about this series ... Got bought the books as a present and got hooked ... Knew that my husband would enjoy the stories but didn't have the time to physically read them so I downloaded them all. I listened to them and got hooked all over again. Would thoroughly recommend especially if you have seen the films as it fills in all of the gaps. This being the last book pieces it all together and so is the one you really won't want to put down. My husband needless to say was totally hooked much to his surprise.
I like this book very much. Is the type of the story each teenager should read. I have read it in Romanian language , in English and now I`m listening it. I can`t get enough of it.
Having read the first 2 books I decided the 3rd was larger and time was of the essence in the lead up to Christmas I got this title by audiobook so I could listen and complete the series before I went to see the cinema version I could then listen whilst on the go in the car , walking to work and decorating my lounge
I was not disappointed by my decision it was a excellent listen and the drama unfolded in a better flow as I could listen most days rather than if I had attempted the novel and not had time to sit and read!
The narrator was good to listen to with a voice that invited you in to listen more
I am a huge fan of the twilight series and this really is one of the best. Without any spoilers only disappointment was the end. Still a great book and well worth a credit.
