Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing but a slow start When I started reading this it took me a while to push through the beggining, once I pushed through it the book was AMAZING, Stephanie Meyer knows how to write an amazing love story.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great book! I am sure you will like this if you love books with romance, adventure and some thrill in it.... not for younger teens though as the plot is very unusual (as it talks about outer beings and lifeforms)... still recommend this for a great read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it! I read this book a few years ago, and I absolutely loved it. I cried during the movie after it came out because I remembered how emotional the scene was when I read it in the book.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 3 1/2 stars I am not going to lie, this book is great, BUT SOME OF IT IS SO BORING I ALMOST THREW IT ACROSS THE ROOM. I found the book hard to get through, mostly at the part when it was just Wanderer and Melanie talking. Basically, you need a lot of patience to get through this book, although the idea and writing is great. I definitely recommend this book to fans of books like Lux or Shadow Falls.
