    1 thought on “The Edge of the Water

    1. Okay there were definitely flaws in this one But it was such a joy to have a quick fast paced read Part of that is because it s a book two and there s no reason to set the scene And part of it because it s a book 2 but it s not just a longer version of book 1 Obviously there s a selkie in this one, which is pretty clear from almost page one And there s than one pov character And lots of confusion And there s change and growth and it didn t have to continue in the obvious path with Becca s stepd [...]

    2. I love how the author gave different point of views throughout the entire story That way readers can get a look at what s going on in the lives of the other characters instead of just the main one.I didn t expect the twist of Jenn s thoughts and emotions on her sexuality, but I think it touched the book in a thoughtful and diverse way.Annie though, gosh What the heck is wrong with that girl She is all sorts of messed up in the head If I didn t know better, I would say that she got fumed with tha [...]

    3. Review I liked this book overall If there was one thing I d change it would have action I knew that Becca and Jen would become friends in the first book because you can t possibly hate someone that much for no apartment reason I was also pleased to find out that Becca did tell Diana about her whispers PlotThe plot of this book was about Nera Nera is a jet black seal It comes to Whidbey Island every year and this year is special because a marine biologist is trying to figure out what Nera is On [...]

    4. Omg I finally finished I started this book in July 2014 and had it sitting on my desk forever unfinished I never really could get into it Today I put my foot down I stayed up until 3 in the morning to finish it too.I m giving this sequel 2 stars In the first book The Edge of Nowhere , we meet Becca a 15 year old girl from San Diego We find out Becca s step father has killed his business partner So Becca and her mom make a run for it Fear that they will be killed as well In their haste to hide, B [...]

    5. This book continues the story begun by author George, in The Edge of Nowhere Becca King is now living in a treehouse provided by Seth She still remains in hiding from her stepfather She and Derric are officially a couple, but Derric is having trouble with the secrets and the Seth thing What are they to each other Why can t Derric know the secrets Seth knows This eventually leads to a breakup and to Derric taking up with Courtney, high school it girl.On a side note, Jenn McDaniels, sworn Becca en [...]

    6. Wow Dit tweede deel van het fluistereiland was nog beter als het eerste deel Het eerste deel heb ik in augustus gelezen voor de leesclub van Chicklit NL Nu, in oktober, werd er voor gekozen om deel 2 voor de leesclub te gaan lezen en ik kan je vertellen dat dat me heel goed is bevallen Deel 1 eindigt met een enorme cliffhanger Deel 2 speelt hier bijna niet op 1 Dit vond ik wel een beetje raar Hoe kun je nu deel 1 afsluiten met zo n einde en dan in deel 2 hier eigenlijk weinig over te vertellen T [...]

    7. This is a book received through First reads.This novel appears directed to a young adult market and I would describe it best as a mystery novel which operates at several levels While the main mystery and story line revolves around an unusual seal NERA who shows up annually at a small coastal line, mysteries and secrets are also part of the make up of each of the main characters involved in the book The strength of the book lies in its character development and witty dialogue The story itself hol [...]

    8. This little series by Elizabeth George is one of my summer guilty pleasures While the writing isn t as good as in some of her other books, I enjoy the odd abilities of Becca she can hear the whispers we think in our heads and Diana Kinsale she touches people and has visions And Jenn has really come into her own, too Without giving too much away, the novel is set on an island off the Washington state coast, where Becca uses her unusual talents as well as the library and her brain to discover the [...]

    9. If I hadn t won this book through a Giveaway, I don t think I would have read it I must say it was very disappointing.The overall plot of this novel was messy and it felt like it was out of place and irrelevant I don t even know where to begin on the charactersI guess I just didn t find them interesting at all.

    10. Elizabeth George s YA books have left me disappointed I am a big fan of her adult mysteries, but it seems like she is trying too hard to break into the YA market by hitting all the teen check boxes, i.e mind reading, fantasy, young love angst, bully become friend, oh, let s though in a little mythology in there too It s too much She should of just stayed with the straight mystery.

    11. Het vorige boek vond ik eigenlijk 3,5 sterren waard, deze misschien 2,5, dus allebei afherond drie sterren gegeven Terwijl ik het eerste boek dus wel beter vond dan dit tweede boek Dit boek gaat voor een groot gedeelte over een zeehond en daar heb ik blijkbaar niet zoveel mee Ik hoop op een beter verhaal in boek nummer drie

    12. Being an avid Elizabeth George fan, I was stunned to read this book I would never have thought she was the author of this book The characters are not nearly as well drawn and seem to lack depth The storyline is very YA in nature and than a bit superficial What a disappointment.

    13. Although the first book was okay and realistic, this one is really far streched and completely exaggerated Absurd even

    14. I really enjoyed the novel, The Edge of the Water Honestly, to simply tell what it is about would not do it justice Umm, so these teens live on this island in the Northwest, and there is this seal that keeps visiting every year The whole town is obsessed with the seal Some want to protect it at all costs, some want to kill it, and some want to exploit it This type of plot is normally not my cup of tea I mean seals , but throw in a love triangle, a poor girl trying to find her way out of a dead e [...]

    15. 3.5 stars.I, again, really enjoyed the coming of age part of this book, but the magical bits were too much for me this time The first book didn t have as many, and I liked it for that I still am interested in reading the rest of the series, but only if they take out the extra strange magic bits.

    16. Wonderfully atmospheric Pacific Northwest setting Four stars because the paranormal element came late in the book and was too fleeting I found myself rethinking the story in my imagination, had the mythology been woven through of the book For me, it would have added richness and connection, but George is a great author and this is a gritty and compelling story.

    17. Moins passionnant que le premier tome, ce livre est tout de m me bien sympa J ai pris plaisir retrouver Becca et surtout avoir le point de vue de Jenn, qui n est pas simplement la petite peste du premier tome Derric, par contre, j aurais pu me passer de son point de vue autant je comprends pourquoi il s est f ch avec Becca, autant le reste de son histoire ne m a pas du tout int ress e

    18. 3.5 starsAt first I wasn t too sure about this book There was quite a bit of teen angst which is something that I normally don t like, but it was handled very well I liked how we got good insight and development for several characters The author then brought them together and finished the story on a strong note I am looking forward to the next book.

    19. Why is this so much about sex with only a side of paranormal Sigh Not as young adulty as I was expecting although there was plenty of angst It was alright, very mysterious, I still plan on reading the next one out of curiosity so I guess that speaks for itself also, view spoiler Cilla the seal lol hide spoiler

    20. This is the second of a series of young adult novels that are set on Whidbey Island The story deals with themes that would be of interest to a younger reader but I enjoy picturing the sites on Whidbey that I recognize now that I am spending time there.

    21. Don t get me wrong I loved the book and the character development is just phenomenal I just don t really understand why the whole book revolved around a seal I thought the series was about Becca, not the secrets of the island.

    22. This book is quite slow at points but I love these characters and the relationships they have with each other Jenn is my precious little baby, I love her so much.

    23. c tait pas tout fait a je lirais quand m me la suite par curiosit une histoire bien adolescente , sans myst re sans surprise la fin c est n importe quoi

    24. I wouldn t have bought this book if I had known it was a teen novel That said it wasn t bad even managed to surprise me.

    25. And so it continues, each book gets further and further into each character and with the OMG twist at the end Loved it.

    26. A lot of the problems I had with the first part were addressed in this book I liked the story better as well even though it was rather predictable.

    27. REVIEW BY ADAM 8 2 AND WILL 8 3The Edge of the Water is the second book in the Whidbey Island Saga, prequel to The Edge of Nowhere, Elizabeth George s first YA novel.The Edge of the Water is set in the twenty first century on Whidbey Island The book is about a mysterious black seal called Nera who returns every year to the same place at the same time, but, this year the seal returns early along with a marine biologist who is writing her dissertation on the seal and, unknown to the other characte [...]

    28. This sequel definitely wasn t as satisfying as I had hoped It s been a while since I read the first book and I m sure it had its flaws but I loved it It s one of those books that have stuck with me ever since I finished it This book, however, I can t say left much of an impression It was a little hard to read through to be perfectly honest and I think it s primarily because it seems so vastly different from what was presented in the first book The first book was suspenseful story about a girl ou [...]

    29. It would be impossible to pace the plot slowly than in this book and so far, this series The main plot, from book 1, is no further along, and instead she introduces a supernatural element Still rather badly written I m still wondering what will happen in the main plot since she s given us so few clues and that might be enough for at least one book, but no stars for this sucker
