    "Robert Whitlow's best!"

    I love Robert Whitlow's books, and this is his best ... so far! Since I live in the South, I am familiar with some of the locations he uses in his books. He is an expert at weaving together a Christian message and an exciting and believable legal drama. I love that he made his main character, Tom Crane, a strong, confident attorney but at the same time he was a Southern gentleman with manners! I definitely recommend this book!

    "How is this part of the series?"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Not really. Story was just okay and narrator was not good.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    No surprises...predictable.


    How could the performance have been better?

    During dialogue portions of the book, he sounded like a kid learning to read and sound out words. Didn't sound natural.


    Do you think Water's Edge needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Not really. Characters were not interesting enough for me to care about what else happens to them.


    Any additional comments?

    This is shown as the 4th book in The Tides of Truth series. I'm not sure why. None of the characters appeared in the other 3 books. It had absolutely nothing in common with the others, except that it was a Christian book. There was no continuity with the others.If you buy it expecting to see what else is happening in the lives of the characters from the previous books, as is the usual case in a series, you will be very disappointed. I usually like Robert Whitlow's books, but this one just doesn't measure up.

    "great book-very true to life"
    Where does Water's Edge rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I enjoyed it for the religious content and the suspense too. It ranks near the top.

    "Narration is terrible."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Water's Edge to be better than the print version?

    No. At least in the print version, I wouldn't have to hear the voice of the narrator.


    What was most disappointing about Robert Whitlow???s story?

    It beats you over the head with religion. It got in the way of the storyline. I am a Christian but the storyline of this book was quite thin.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Joseph Collins?

    Anybody who was really from the South. The fake Southern voice was quite irritating. So much so that I actually searched to see where Joseph Collins from from. I couldn't find anything on him so I suspect that rather than being a voice actor, he was someone connected to the writer who faked, quite terribly, a Southern accent.. it was especially annoying to hear the fake combination British/Southern accent.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I wouldn't even consider making a film of this book.

    "This book is not related to this series in ANY way"
    What did you like best about Water's Edge? What did you like least?

    I began the book quite baffled at how it was connected to the series. Come to find out, it has ZERO-ZILCH-NADA affiliation. None whatsoever. When I finally overcame my confusion, the book turned out to be a good story. However, the book sounded like it was narrated by Forest Gump. Seriously!


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Joseph Collins?

    Anyone
