I've listened to over three hours of this audio book, and I'm at the point where I'm only enjoying it because the narrator, Kate Reading, has a great reading voice. Other than that, I just don't care. There are sort of aliens, souls without bodies, 'seekers,' 'healers,' and other things about which I couldn't give a flying fig. There's the mediocre writing of the Twilight series books without the tension or action. I'm going to abandon this and have absolutely no guilty feeling about it (although I'm slightly irritated b/c I spent two audible credits on it). Tonight on the train, I turned it off and opted to listen to my stand-by David Sedaris, Live at Carnegie Hall, even though I've listened to it at least five times. But at least Sedaris is reliably entertaining. I've even created an entire shelf inspired by the Meyer book! So, read it at your own peril. Or, simply at your own guaranteed boredom.
