    This set includes all the books from the Twilight Saga, which includes; Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, and lastly Breaking Dawn. The books themselves are exactly likes the ones you find at any bookstore, in hardcover. The case it comes in has all the book covers displayed on each side minus the names of each book.

    What is included that you couldn’t normally get by buying each one individually elsewhere are 4 5×7-ish cards that have the cover picture on one side, then quotes from the corresponding book written on the other. for example: one 5×7 has a picture of the twilight cover, hands holding a red apple, then the other side it says, “About three things i was absolutely positive. First, Edward was a vampire. Second, there was a part of him–and i didn’t know how dominant that part of him might be–that thirsted for my blood. And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him.” (I included some pictures so you can get a better idea of what they are)

    I would recommend this set to those who do not already own the twilight collection(like me) and would like to own all the books(i borrowed them all from a friend). Or of course obsessed twilight fans. There’s nothing truly remarkable about the set so i wouldn’t go buying this if you already own all the books.

    I am very happy with my purchase nonetheless. This saga is one of my favorites.

    This is a value buy for those who are contemplating sinking their teeth [pun intended] into Stephenie Meyers’ Twilight series as it not only offers all four books, i.e. Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn for a great price, they all come housed in a gorgeous keepsake box. I have all four of the books in hardcover, but I purchased them individually as they were released, and am seriously contemplating getting this boxed set which I can keep as a souvenir, and then use the other books as my reading copies.

    Well, for those who are new to the series, the books are in the following order:

    Twilight – Bella Swan moves to a small town near Seattle called Forks and meets Edward Cullen, an enigmatic student at her high school who turns out to be a vampire and lives with his clan in a magnificent mansion. As the romance between Bella and Edward blossom, they have to face obstacles such as the physical ‘constraints’ of being in a mortal-vampire relationship, facing objections from their respective families, and threats from other more vicious vampires.

    New Moon – Edward and Bella are parted and Bella is so heartbroken that her life becomes empty and without direction. Enter Jacob Black, the tall, dark and handsome friend from the reservation, La Push who provides Bella with not only friendship but someone she can trust and rely on during a desperate time. Of course, nothing in Bella Swan’s life is ever quite so simple and complications crop up once again.

    Eclipse – Edward and Bella are back together, much to the disappointment and disgust of Jacob Black, himself now an other-worldly being. Will he convince Bella that he is more worthy of her love or will Edward prevail?

    Breaking Dawn – the final instalment in the series. Edward, Bella and Jacob feature prominently here, with the most pivotal question – will Bella sacrifice her mortality for an immortal life with Edward? If so, what are the repercussions?

    All in all, the Twilight series makes for an interesting and fun reading experience and this beautiful boxed set for the price offered here on Amazon is definitely a keepsake for fans and new readers alike!

    I plowed through all four books in eight days. That might indicate an obsession, a speed reader, an easy read, or some combination thereof. In the case of Twilight, it’s a combination.

    I’ll say up-front that I recommend these books, at Amazon’s amazing price, for anyone interested in Vampires-meets-90210. It reminded me of a coming-of-age, Dawson’s creek-style story with supernatural elements.

    The books are very easy to read. The first-person narrative, written like a journal or diary, gets you into the character’s head and keeps you turning the pages. Though the perspective changes between characters later on; I found that switching to be a weakness. You can’t bare a character’s mind and soul, then suddenly switch to a new mind and soul and ignore the previous one–the readers are cheated out of a deeper insight.

    The plot is interesting enough to want to finish the books; however, it does kind of eye-rolling at certain points. There are definitely a few teen drama moments and more than a few repetitive statements. Those episodes of juvenile insecurity and monotonous dwelling weaken the story; thankfully, it’s not often enough to ruin the entire series.

    Mrs. Meyer gives us an amazing glimpse into the main character’s life, and the author can write some pretty enticing–but not too explicit–sensual scenes. Vampires and sensuality go hand-in-hand, and the author ties them together well.

    Lastly, the overall quality of writing is mediocre. While I’m not a professional, I do understand the basics of grammar and voice enough to know that Twilight, and its successors, displayed plenty of weakness in mechanics. There is a lot of adverb and adjective overkill; the proverbial “Show; Don’t tell” was abandoned in many, many scenes. The use of tag lines (she hissed, he chuckled, she replied, he retorted) is abused throughout the books. When in doubt, use “said” to tell us who is talking.

    Grab the books for the price; don’t expect the next Harry Potter or Anne Rice-caliber novel, but take the story as is and you’ll enjoy it.

    The Twilight Saga is one of my favorite series. I started this series reluctantly by being encouraged to read Twilight by a friend. I checked it out of my local library and knew that I had to own it. Half way through, I queued up New Moon and Eclipse to start immediately upon completion. I then waited for the arrival of Breaking Dawn, which I completed the weekend it was released.

    I have all the books on this series in audio and 3 in print, but I have to say, I prefer the audio by far. Ilayana Kadushin does a fabulous job giving Bella a voice and adds so much more depth and emotion to the story than I could personally get from print. Matt Walters is introduced as Jacob in the Epilogue in Eclipse and Book 2 of Breaking Dawn. He also does a great job of giving Jacob a voice.

    As for the series itself, I loved it. Twilight, Eclipse are my favorites in this series, followed by New Moon and Breaking Dawn. I won’t give an overview of the plot of each of the books as I won’t be able to do them justice individually with limited words. I will summarize series as a whole by saying the first 3 in this series are really about love, conflict, choices with a little bit of the supernatural and some action involved. The last look in this series takes an unexpected turn and is more of a fantasy type novel with a little romance – different than what was laid out in the previous three books.

    Breaking Dawn seemed to be received with more mixed reviews than the previous three because it deviated from the format laid out in the previous books. I had some mixed feelings about the story because of this, but I still enjoyed it.

    This is a fabulous series that is aimed at young adults (mostly female) but has held the interest of adults like myself, and a smaller male audience as well. While the last book in this series is quite a bit different than the previous 3, its still one of my favorite series.

    It’s not a literary masterpiece and certainly has flaws, but the story laid out out and the world created are absoultely fascinating and highly entertaining. This is why is I think it deserves 5 stars….as well as the readers of the audio version. Great performances.

    The audio version is definetly worth the extra expense. If you loved the Twilight Saga, this is a must have in my opinion.

    I bought this to have an untouched set of the books, as my original set has been a bit abused from loaning them out and my own obsessive reading! The box is gorgeous [and sturdy!] with a cover picture of the books on the sides.

    The four lithographs are approximately 4 x 11. Each one is the cover of the book [without any of the words]. The back of each has the blurb from the book it corresponds with, in the Twilight font. They are a nice little addition to the set.

    All in all, if you were to buy the hardback versions separately, this boxed set is only a little more and you get the lithos with it.
