I busy myself living life, chasing smiles, and enjoying adventures!
This is one of my favorite books and I've listened to it multiple times. I am a road trip junkie and when life interferes with my wanderlust I hop on the bus with Cam and Andrew and sit back and enjoy the adventure. The tragic event that this couple encounters near the end of the book is so well written that I literally had to pull my car off the road, sobbing while clutching my hands to my chest clinging to every word. Spoiler - I was smiling at the end. A definite must read!
Being a mom, career woman & student (again) I don't have time to read and miss it. Driving to/from work/school is now fun thanks to audible!
Why is it that authors have to write stories about female main characters that overthink everything and come up with very bizarre thoughts (frustrating assumptions) rather than just communicate to their lovers? I think if we cut this behavior out, it would make for a far better and more exciting story!
It's a typical young love story about 20 something's falling in love. They act like high schoolers just learning how to love for the first time in a relationship.
The very ending of the story was good. Then again when the book finally ended, I finally finished suffering through the main female character's non-stop false assumptions of what every action or word her new lover had. Why is it that author's mostly write about wishy-washy women with no common sense, strength, or brain? Had the main character communicated she'd save herself and me from the grief of hours of nonsense and wasted time!
I had high hopes because of the good reviews this book got. It's like I listened to a completely different title than what those reviews described!!!
The Edge of Never was painfully dull-- took forever to pique my attention at all.
The dialogue between the characters was juvenile and the EXCESSIVE cursing added nothing to the story.
It's predictible at every turn, it's a storyline that we have all heard 100 times: two 20- somethings find solace in each other because they both think their problems are the end of the world. They hook up, have no jobs and tons of sex. And they live happily ever after.
I was so disappointed with this non story. I didn't bother to finish it. Boring and juvenile. I will look much closer at reviews in the future. I'm amazed at the number of positive comments. Were they listening to the same book?
Defintely not for me. The characters are shallow and romance is the topic of the day. Don't look here for any depth.
The whole premise of the story and and oh how I love Cam & Andrew!
She was awesome!
I cried for the first time ever listening to a book!!!!!!!
Please hurry up with the second book!!!!!
The narrator did a fantastic job! She really captivated the personalities of each character. However, I have listened to 30+ audio books in the last 5 months, and I literally couldn't stop listening! The story was fun, romantic, exciting, sad, and happy! It captures all of your emotions and you feel like you're emotionally invested of each of the main characters. Honestly, best book I've listened to yet! Can't wait for the second book!
Honestly, I think both Cameron and Andrew were fascinating! I loved them both!
Being a wanna-be musician myself, I LOVED when he got her to get up, face her fear, and sing with him on stage! It was adorable!
I laughed, I cried, and at one point; I seriously almost threw my phone out the window, but recovered. Loved the characters!
I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
The Edge of Never had the perfect blend. It was everything I would want out of this genre. You had your edgy hot sex scenes and plot! imagine that. The sex scenes were pretty steamy and I loved it. There was a real nice slow burn leading up to them. The sexual tension grew as the story progressed and when things finally heated up, I was cheering for them. What I loved the most about the romantic situation is that they meant something to each other by then.
So the book starts out with Camryn. She's going through some hard times.. depression sucks. Something happens, I won't elaborate on what, but it pretty much breaks the last straw for her and I can imagine why. That would probably do me in too. So she's off, with a small bag to wherever the Greyhound bus will take her.
The Edge of Never sucked me in pretty quickly, because I was so curious what this trip would bring and where it would take her. She meets a guy, Andrew Perrish. He's also on the bus for different reasons. I adored their interactions. I was also pleasantly surprised when I realized Andrew has some POV chapters.
I really enjoyed this book. The adventure, the message, the sadness, and over all just the whole feel of the book. Then ending though, it totally caught me off guard.
I loved The Edge of Never. So glad I gave it a try. You should too!
Lauren Fortgang did a great job with the delivery of the story.
