Description-

  • To be irrevocably in love with a vampire is both fantasy and nightmare woven into a dangerously heightened reality for Bella Swan. Pulled in one direction by her intense passion for Edward Cullen, and in another by her profound connection to werewolf Jacob Black, she has endured a tumultuous year of temptation , loss, and strife to reach the ultimate turning point. Her imminent choice to either join the dark but seductive world of immortals or pursue a fully human life has become the thread from which the date of two tribes hangs.
    Now Bella has made her decision; a startling chain of unprecedented events is about to unfold with potentially devastating and unfathomable consequences. Just when the frayed strands of Bella's life—first discovered in Twilight, then scattered and torn in New Moon and Eclipse—seem ready to heal and knit together, could they be destroyed...forever?
    The astonishing, breathlessly anticipated conclusion to the Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn illuminates the secrets and mysteries of this spellbinding romantic epic.
    From the Compact Disc edition.

About the Author-

  • Stephenie Meyer graduated from Brigham Young University with a degree in English literature, and she lives with her husband and three young sons in Arizona. After the publication of her debut novel, Twilight, booksellers chose her as one of the "most promising new authors of 2005". (Publishers Weekly.) Look for Twilight, New Moon, and Eclipse on audio from Listening Library.

Reviews-

  • AudioFile Magazine This final novel in Meyer's popular teen vampire series is sure to satisfy fans, even with its somewhat fizzled-out ending. Unfortunately, narrators Ilyana Kadushin and Matt Walters do little to enhance the tension, romance, and excitement of the plot. Kadushin's voice is lovely to listen to when she reads Bella's sections, but she adds little inflection or vocal variation among speakers, resulting in whole sections where the listener is unable to identify which character is talking. Walters's performance is certainly more varied and more effective, but his characterization of Jacob's narration sounds contrived--a caricature of what an angsty teenage werewolf "should" sound like--gruff, angry, and loud. One wonders if the all the hype surrounding Meyer's series encouraged a rushed job on this audiobook. A.A. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine

    It ought to seem redundant to dismiss the fourth and final Twilight novel as escapist fantasy-but how else could anyone look at a romance about an ordinary, even clumsy teenager torn between a vampire and a werewolf, both of whom are willing to sacrifice their happiness for hers? Flaws and all, however, Meyer's first three novels touched on something powerful in their weird refraction of our culture's paradoxical messages about sex and sexuality. The conclusion is much thinner, despite its interminable length. Everygirl Bella achieves her wishes quickly (marriage and sex, in that order, are two, and becoming an immortal is another), and once she becomes a vampire it's almost impossible to identify with her. But that's not the main problem. Essentially, everyone gets everything they want, even if their desires necessitate an about-face in characterization or the messy introduction of some back story. Nobody has to renounce anything or suffer more than temporarily-in other words, grandeur is out. This isn't about happy endings; it's about gratification. A sign of the times? Ages 12-up.
