Ok. Although that description is very blah, it just about covers it, right?! I don't make it sound very appealing, but I actually found it to be very addictive. Was it because of the amazing writing? Definitely not. I wouldn't consider Stephenie Meyer to be a good "writer" per say as she can't seem to get away from the use of the same words (muttered, murmured, etc), but she does put together a good story. I mean, what girl doesn't fantasize about an amazingly good-looking guy that only has eyes for her? And beyond that, he's not he only one that wants her....& bad! And the 2nd guy that has fallen for her is equally as attractive. SCORE! Throw in the fact that the reader is whisked away to a fantasy word of dangerous, yet sensual creatures, & you have the makings of an un-put-down-able book!
Age recommendation: 14 & up
On a scale of 1-10 stars, I give it 8.
The movie sucked the books better
it was the best book i have ever read! thanks to my home library for having it!
Not sure if it was the book or if it was the narrator but it was a little slow at first. I would say that by the time I got to about have way through the CD's I was thoroughly hooked. Compared to the movie the book, was much better.
