As usual Paul kept us on the edge of the mystery. Just as you thought you knew.... a new twist! Vivid descriptions help paint the picture of the scenes and bring each place and character into clear view in my mind's eye!
Is there anything you would change about this book?
Yes, but it's difficult to describe. The premise is that this warden solves the mystery...sort of. But the whole thing seems to jump around, and while things get resolved, and it qualifies as a who done it, simply because you are given so little info you really can't guess, it's one of those rambling accounts where the characters seem to stumble onto info while doing spontaneous and often foolish things. Not that it's uninteresting exactly or difficult to listen to it's just a little hard to realize anything has actually happened. It almost seems anecdotal or a news recap, you see what happened, you see the result or solution but if you had to retell it to someone it would be hard to put in order or pick out the high points in this story.
Would you recommend The Precipice to your friends? Why or why not?
I don't think so. It's okay, it is sort of entertaining if you have some hiking interest or familiarity with the AT, but it seems to just wander along sort of rambling. Not boring exactly but like a hike or car trip, there are long sections where nothing significant is going on so while not boring at the time, these sections are forgettable after the trip.
What three words best describe Henry Levya’s voice?
calm, unexcited, steadily paced
Could you see The Precipice being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
Can't see it as written. The idea might be used but the story would have to be streamlined, and no way it could sustain a series.
