Publisher's Summary

In many ways, Reeve LeClaire looks like a typical 22 year old girl. She's finally landed her own apartment, she waitresses to pay the bills, and she wishes she wasn't so nervous around new people. She thinks of herself as agile, not skittish. As serious, not grim. But Reeve is anything but normal. 10 years ago, she was kidnapped and held captive. After a lucky escape, she's spent the last six years trying to rebuild her life, a recovery thanks in large part to her indispensable therapist Dr. Ezra Lerner. But when he asks her to help another girl rescued from a similar situation, Reeve realizes she may not simply need to mentor this young victim - she may be the only one who can protect her from a cunning predator who is still out there, watching every move.

From the author of the #1 nonfiction best-seller Perfect Victim: The True Story of the Girl in the Box comes a novel that draws you into a chilling and engrossing world. With powerfully gripping characters and an ending that is a masterpiece of deception, Carla Norton's The Edge of Normal is a stunning debut thriller.

    Story
    "Too long"

    The story started off strong. Much of it was fairly predictable, but it was still good. However, the book should have ended several chapters before it did. It dragged on way past the point of a good ending.

    "Good listen"

    Good story, well put together. I didn't love the narrator. I particularly enjoyed the interview with the author at the end. Definitely added depth and understanding to the story and its raison d'être. I'd love to hear more of these on audiobooks!

    Story
    "hmmmmm..a big fat MAYBE!"

    I didn't like is the narrator she wasn't good at all. It was something about her changing to the male voice that was bad. The story line was typical-nothing really surprising. I don't think it was a great ideal to tell who the main kidnapper was so soon. I was hoping for some huge, great ending but no..it was kind of flat. I read the other comments-I didn't see what was so great or different about the story. I think a twist would have made this perfect.

    "Love the Story, Love the Narrator..."

    The narrator made this story, I was so sucked into all the characters. It was a very visual read, I could see the story unfolding as I listened...
    Great book and listen.

    Story
    "Not the usual heroine for a mystery."
    Would you try another book from Carla Norton and/or Christina Delaine?

    Carla Norton had a fresh approach to her mystery, it would be interesting to see more of her novel approach to a heroine.

    Christina Delaine was difficult for me to listen to. She made the men sound rather slow witted, I would have enjoyed a liittle more variation in voice tempo and inflection.


    What aspect of Christina Delaine’s performance would you have changed?

    Change the speed of some of the characters voices, they sounded the same.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Probably not, the material in this book is easier to read than to take in as a graphic visual. When I read, I can adjust my imagination to a level that is comfortable for me opposed to a movie producer's standard.

    Story
    "I enjoyed the book. But the production was awful."
    Would you try another book from Carla Norton and/or Christina Delaine?

    yes, the story was strong. But not the narrator.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Original story.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Christina Delaine?

    anyone. Between the baby voice of the young teenager and the extreme swings in volume between whispering and yelling, I almost returned the book. It was a hard listen.


    Was The Edge of Normal worth the listening time?

    yes.

    "Story & Narrator GREAT"

    Rare is it when the story holds you (nearly breathless, at times) and the narrator is perfect for the drama. I look forward to the author's next book on 'Reeve'.

    "Too slow"

    The story has good potential but it was too slow for me. The narrator was really good.
