    What did you love best about The Other Side of Midnight?

    Good, entertaining summer reading.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot was fun. The character Noel Page was interesting, although the other characters not so much. I always wonder at the male ego who thinks he can write a book from a woman's point of view.


    Have you listened to any of Steven Pacey’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The narrator had a lot of voices, even for his characters with accents, which must be very difficult. His American accents were mostly New York, which got rather annoying to listen to after a while.

    Fleeing assailants through alleyways in Denver late one night, Thomas Hunter narrowly escapes to the roof of an industrial building. Then a silent bullet from the night clips his head and his world goes black. When he awakes, he finds himself in an entirely different reality, a green forest that seems more real than where he was. Every time he tries to sleep, he wakes up in the other world, and soon he truly no longer knows which reality is real.

    Overall

    If this book is written for children, it should be advertised as such. As it is, that is the only excuse I can find for such an amateurish, poorly written novel. The author's long passages would repeat the same words over & over, such as "And then....And then...And then..." That's just bad writing. The fantasy world was childish, with the bad black bats and bad black forest, and the good white bats and good colored forest. The whole fantasy parts were just boring. I kept finding myself daydreaming, waiting for the author to switch back to the real world. There is a lot of dialog in the book and sometimes the narrator did the voices well and sometimes you couldn't tell who was saying what - you just had to guess from the content. Perhaps sometimes the narrator would forget which voice was for what character? Sometimes he would use an incorrect word, leaving me wondering if the book had a typo or if the narrator just made a mistake. The book ends with a cliff-hanger (just like in children's books) and frankly, I could care less what happens next.
