Twilight/New Moon/Eclipse/Breaking Dawn Unabridged Audiobook CD
Author: Stephenie Meyer
Read by: Ilyana Kadushin, Matt Walters
Not just another February/December romance.
The Twilight Series is a collection of four books, with an incomplete
fifth available on the author's web site, (a retelling of the first which
was leaked). The series follows a pair of dissimilar, almost star-crossed
lovers, Edward Cullen and Isabella Swan, and the beginning of their
journey together. Translated into 20 languages, the books have sold over
17 million copies worldwide, and stayed on the New York Times BestSeller
List for over 140 weeks. A motion picture based on the first novel will be
released later this month (oh look, trailers!).
The first installment of the series, Twilight, surrounds Bella's move from
Arizona to Washington, where she moves in with her father, the local
Sheriff, and starts a new school. Bella meets Edward Cullen and they fall
in love. She begins to uncover some of his secrets. His family welcomes
her with open arms... mostly.
As relationships with age disparity go, this one takes the cake. Both are
high school students; Bella is independent, intelligent, and thoughtful.
Edward's family is wealthy and secluded. He is a bit mysterious and
appears to be of similar age (but is actually obscenely older). Of course
they're both attractive.
Oh, and he's dead.
