Review: Twilight Audiobook

Twilight (Twilight #1) by Stephenie Meyer - read by Ilyana Kadushin

Published January 5th 2009 by Bolinda Publishing Pty Ltd
Audio CD
Source: Library

"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, mesmerising 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 realise is 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 readers riveted right until the very last page is turned."

- From Goodreads



I have read the Twilight series several times and I'm sure my readers know that I enjoy the series. But wow the audio book was just bad. For one the voices wasn't my own so I had a very different Bella and Edward in my head suddenly.

Now I know that their relationship isn't the best and that it is creepy at times. I know most twilight fans ignore all these facts and just enjoy the story. But this Audio Book made it impossible!

It makes Bella sound even more desperate and Edward even more depraved.

Please if you haven't read Twilight, don't listen to the audio book first, and if you haven't listened to the Audio Book yet, but have read the book, stay away if you want to stay in the twilight bubble :)

I completely agree...I despised the audiobook of Twilight, didn't even finish it. That lady's voice was just too cheerful.

I was so glad to find this review. I have read the Twilight series multiple times and I thought the audiobook would be a relaxing way to spend my commute. Not so much! The reader's inflection is awful and makes Bella sound like a valley girl. I really *wanted* to like the audiobook, but I just do not!

There's a great sense of fun as Astro discovers his ability to fly (jet boots!) and soars though the city replica watches uk, then high above the clouds and then tunnels through a mountain at super speed before erupting through the volcano top. Later Astro rolex replica finds himself in the clutches of a Stromboli-esque figure called Ham Eggs and eventually has to square off against gucci replica a myriad of awesome robot fighters.
