A slow trudge

Maybe it's the monotone and tired narrator or the schoolboy obsession to mundane and irrelevant detail (not only do we get the make and model of every bit of kit but it's price and it's competitive place in the market place), maybe it's the one dimensional and sanctimonious character of the lead or the constant implausibility of the twists and turns that make this book so flat. Disappointing listen from someone who usually rarely disappoints.

Narrator flattens everything

I too find the narrator seriously distracting. He has a very flat voice. There is a lot of internal dialogue in the book, explaining the thought processes of the main protagonists. This is delivered in such a flat monotone that I find it impossible to accept the main character as a plausible figure. I also found that some of the narrators idiosyncratic pronunciations set my teeth on edge over time (`moble' for `mobile', `colm' for `calm', pri*ma*ry with a stress on the second syllable, and these are just those returning most frequently).

Yes, there are a number of twists in the plot, and some of them stretch credibility. However, I find myself so distracted by the narrator that I feel I cannot fairly review the book on its own merits. I was never really drawn in, and that is fairly rare for me when listening to a Deaver novel. Maybe I'll read the book some time to see what it is like without an ever-present irritant.

To everybody considering this audio book I would strongly recommend trying to listen to an excerpt first.

Great book

This is my second Jeffery Deaver book and I was not dissapointed. I loved all the twists, turns and detailed charaters. Although the book was detailed it was easy to follow. I was on the edge of my seat many times. For those who like Michael Connelly or James Patterson you will love this book.

Great Storyline

What made the experience of listening to Edge the most enjoyable?

Easy listening - excellent narration and very interesting storyline.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I set aside specific times of the day for my audio books and was always keen to get back to this one.
