Stunning...I have had many late late nights lying in the dark beside my sweetie with earphones plugged in...I was completely captured by the story that takes place (from Forks to Italy) from the first few chapters of Twilight through New Moon & now Eclipse. My heart broke with Bella's and her pain reminded me of my own first love ended..I am completely entranced with the entire cast of characters in this series. Ms. Meyers has skillfully built so many fascets into each one that with very little imagination entire books could be written about each life...or should I say..life ended.. Hahaha!
2008? That is when the next book is due to be released? I, for one, cannot wait.

STORY (supernatural romance) - Eclipse is Book 3 of a four-book series. I'm a bit older than the target audience and not a fan of supernatural romances, but I've persevered listening to this series in order even though I've been pretty bored. Multiple mega-hit movies and 28,071 Audible listeners rating the series 4.4 overall means something, right?
The series is famous for it's human-vampire-werewolf love triangle, but the werewolf love interest doesn't really become a factor till the end of this book -- after about 35 hours of total listening time. I'm sure I'm a minority here, but I think this would have been better if it had been condensed to about half the total time investment. That said, I'm hooked by the cliffhanger at the end of this book, and I'm probably going to buy the final one soon, rather than waiting for a sale as I usually do!
PERFORMANCE - It's okay. She doesn't try to distinguish between male and female voices at all, which sometimes is confusing. There is a male narrator who reads a small bit at the beginning and an epilogue at the end, conveying Jacob's perspective.
OVERALL - The target audience is high school and college girls, and it's perfect for them. There's no cursing or sex, although there is lots of kissing and talk about when they'll actually go further. There's talk about vampire blood-sucking but I don't think much of that actually happens, and a small amount of violence. You must listen to all four books in order, but think about the time investment. As an adult, I can't say it's worth it till I hear Book 4 and see how everything ends.

This is the third chapter of Edward and Bella's story. As hostilities between the vampires and werewolves increase, Bella finds herself caught between Edward, her vampire lover and her best friend, the werewolf Jacob. Jacob is determined to have Bella for his own while Edward is equally determine to hang onto her. When a threat strikes that effects both vampires and werewolves alike, it seems impossible that this will not end in tears.
