This edition is available only to listeners residing in Australia or New Zealand.

When Isabella Swan moves to the gloomy town of Forks and meets the mysterious, alluring Edward Cullen, her life takes a thrilling and terrifying turn. With his porcelain skin, golden eyes, mesmerizing voice, and supernatural gifts, Edward is both irresistible and impenetrable.

Up until now, he has managed to keep his true identity hidden, but Bella is determined to uncover his dark secret. What Bella doesn't realize is that the closer she gets to him, the more she is putting herself and those around her at risk. And, it might be too late to turn back....

Deeply seductive and extraordinarily suspenseful, Twilight will have listeners riveted right until the very last moment.

Good story bad audio

I enjoyed this story but the audio was glitchy and jumped quite a bit, and the voice was really grating after a while. This would have been so much better with someone else reading it. But as it is, it's put me off getting any more in this series as I don't want to listen to her reading it.

story A+ narration C-

Love this story but I was disappointed with the narration. From Bella's standpoint it was good as she is young but for the males in the series there was no masculine depth to it. They sounded very young , almost babyish. There are other narrators that can do exceptional male and female voices so it would have been great to have that contrast in this series. It would have made a huge difference to the overall enjoyment.

sad about the bad narration

I read this book more than once so I knew what I was getting, but I'm seriously disappointed in the bad narration. listen to Justin Eyre if you really want a good narrator.

OK

The story line was great, it feels like one of those books that just keeps on getting better as the series evolves. The audio recording was sometimes choppy but for the main part nice and smooth. The narrator was ok but it was hard to distinguish between what was spoken out loud and what was only thought, it was also hard to distinguish between characters at times. Other than that it was pretty good but in this instance I think the book would be better then the audio reading.

Beyond and Above

Ilyana is great! I've read this saga 100 times and Ilyana managed to bring a new glow with her beautiful voice.

Great story for Tweens.. skipping audio?

I enjoyed the book. Definitely for teens. Unfortunately, it skipped in places. A shame because we pay money for it. It would be like a hard copy missing a few lines all throughout the book?

How could this book not afford a better editor!

This is a classic tale that most people know and love which is why the editing of this audiobook was disappointing. I always thought that the audio skips/repeats was just a bad download or bad version but even deleting and redownloading didn't fix... apparently I'm not the only one who's quality was terrible... I love this story so I stuck it out but I would've thought a book like this could afford a better production. I didn't mind the narrator, but then I rarely care or judge a narrator based on "the voice" I had in my head, it took some getting used to as I had only ever read the book and got this because I got midnight sun as an audio and then went onto this one straight after... so Edwards voice after the Jake's narration took some getting used to...

I own all the audiobooks for this series and I really hope the quality gets better because this is not a book that should not be let down by such poor editing

Classic Teen Romance

I know that Twilight has some pretty glaring flaws if you over analyze it, but to me this is a classic. The over the top dramatics and the cringey awkward moments make me feel like a teenager again, and I love it.

My First Audiobook

I really enjoyed this performance of one of my favourite books. Ilyana is the perfect voice for Bella and brings something different to each character. This was a very enjoyable first audiobook experience.

Narrator ruins it.

This is a good story but ruined by monotonous voice of narrator.

My daughter listened to it all - but I switched off after 10 minutes. Her voice was too irritating.
