Publisher's Summary

A story that captured the imaginations of a generation, Twilight is reimagined in audiobook form through the subtle narrative style of Ilyana Kadushin. As she breathes life into Bella's words, allow yourself to get caught up in this undeniable romance.
This edition is available only to listeners residing in the UK or European Union.
When seventeen-year-old Isabella Swan moves to Forks, Washington to live with her father she expects that her new life will be as dull as the town itself.
In spite of her awkward manner and low expectations, she finds that her new classmates are drawn to this pale, dark-haired new girl in town. But not, it seems, the Cullen family. These five adopted brothers and sisters obviously prefer their own company and will make no exception for Bella.
Bella is convinced that Edward Cullen in particular hates her, but she feels a strange attraction to him, although his hostility makes her feel almost physically ill. He seems determined to push her away - until, that is, he saves her life from an out of control car.
Bella will soon discover that there is a very good reason for Edward's coldness. He, and his family, are vampires - and he knows how dangerous it is for others to get too close.

Great story but couldn't bear the narrator.

I really wanted to listen to this story but found the style of reading really offputting. It felt as though the words were fired at me as fast as possible - I really had trouble processing them. I turned to a paper copy of this book - and found I really loved it. Would recommend the story but with a different narrator!

Teenage vampire drama

I probably don't fit the profile of reader that this book is targetting, but I must say that as a man in his late thirties, I still really enjoyed it. Despite all Bella's teenage angst and modest mantra 'why is the gorgeous Edward interested in someone as dull as me' irritatingly cropping up every third page, there is a great story here. I have read the second book as well and Bella is constantly bemoaning her good luck. The overall impression is that Bella never smiles - she seems to be in a constant sulk and between declaring her love for him, she spends most of the time being fractious with poor Edward.

All the same, I did enjoy it and the book is interesting enough for me to want to read the whole series. The film is very true to the book; almost verbatim in places. The only place it actually diverges is in the fact that whereas the book manages to develop some interesting chemistry between Edward and Bella, the actors chemistry in the film is more suited to two teenagers sitting opposite each other in an STD clinics waiting room.
