    What disappointed you about The Edge?

    The story line was at times interesting if not Illogical and even preposterous but the innappropriate dialogue between characters was so childish it was painful . I had the distinct feeling I was reading a novel written by a 8 grader. The narration was most annoying making the overall experience too much to endure. Sorry, but this one is not worth further discussion.


    Has The Edge turned you off from other books in this genre?

    If the Edge is typical of Catherine Coulter's writing, it will be my last read.

    What did you love best about Blood and Honor?

    The story continues to build on the first book of the series in a logical but interesting way continuing ot develop existing characters and adding new ones. The historical premise is fascinating and I suspect not far from reality and perhaps a good, bad and evil microcosm of a world at war .


    How could the performance have been better?

    Unfortuneately, the narration was, even in the faster speed setting of my ipod, painful to endure. The way too often repeated and labored pronunciation of German and Argentinian military titles was tortured and got in the way of the flow of the story. So distracting in fact I contemplated just giving up many times during the 4 parts. The story was however sufficiently interesting, despite the narration, to continue to the end.....at which point it was kind of like taking off ski boots.

    Kyle McAvoy grew up in his father's small-town law office in York, Pennsylvania. He excelled in college, was elected editor-in-chief of The Yale Law Journal, and his future has limitless potential. But Kyle has a secret, a dark one, an episode from college that he has tried to forget. The secret, though, falls into the hands of the wrong people, and Kyle is forced to take a job he doesn't want, even if it's a job most law students can only dream about....

    JoAnn says: "Good, but not nearly as good as The Firm""
    "Disappointing"
    Overall

    A very interesting and creative premise that was given a ho-hum treatment. The energy dribbled out the story with each new page until it finally seemed to be just "wrapped up" for convenience of the author. It could have gone in a number of far more interesting directions and been a great read. It didn't and it wasn't.

    This is the first full account in nearly half a century of this voyage into history: a tour of the world emerging from the Middle Ages into the Renaissance; a startling anthropological account of tribes, languages, and customs unknown to Europeans; and a chronicle of a desperate grab for commercial and political power.

    Michael says: "A good listen"
    "Like listening to a term paper............."
    Overall

    It is as if the author published his research with out ever having the chance to sort out what is and what is not relevant or interesting. What's more, the narrators wimpy voice is perfect in catching the author's academic and pedantic tone. And wouldn't you think that the narrator would have been selected based on even a passing ability to pronounce Spanish and Portugese words and names? His murdering of the phonetics is so distracting: you wonder what the publisher was thinking.

    There is no entertainment here and it is only useful if YOU are doing a term paper. Otherwise don't go near it.
