Aliens and cookie girlfriends

So a guy falls for a pretty girl and disregards her unbalanced behavior. Her belief in Aliens coming to take her and her fellow chosen ones off to paradise in another galaxy. One day she disappears and he follows her all the way to America to find her, even faking belief in aliens himself.

Ok. Enough of the plot. I have read enough by this author (listened) to know that the guy seems to be the same in all the stories. He is a guy who falls almost obsessively in love with a beautiful girl who is somehow not who she seems, who betrays him in some way.

This love I just couldn't buy. Why would the guy fall so hard for someone with beliefs so opposed to his own, someone who is obsessed with her beliefs. So what if she is beautiful? She was a crackpot. Sorry to all you alien believers out there.

Good but not his best

Another easy-to-read, fast paced story by Mark Edwards. This one is exploring the dangers of sinister cults and the strengths of beliefs. Richard's girl-friend Mary believes in aliens. She is completely devoted to this cause. Richard is a non-believer. Then Mary vanishes and Richard goes on a thrilling search to find her leading him to some dark sections of society.
Because of the alien theme I wasn't sure whether this would be my kind of book, but it turned out to be another really compelling suspenseful thriller. I just love Mark Edward's writing style. He creates characters that come to life and you become invested in what is happening to them. Ok, not his best book, but still thoroughly enjoyable.
The narrator did a good job and was pleasant to listen to.
3.5 stars overall

Strange but Thought provoking.

An unusual storyline which I very much enjoyed.
The narration was good even though the female voices were a little suspect to day the least!
All in all a good read.

What You Wish For

This, the fourth novel by Mark Edwards I've purchased from Audible was another nail-biting treat for the ears. The plot centres around Hastings-based regional newspaper photographer Richard Thompson (yet another character named after a musician, which is a feature of many an Edwards book) meets the beautiful, young and mysterious Marie on a hilltop. He's investigating and documenting alleged alien sightings in the sky over the South Coast; Marie, and her two companions, form part of a small cell of believers. Richard soon falls in love with the enigmatic Marie, who introduces him to the phenomenon of 'visitors' from other planets. All is not as it appears though and Marie's disappearance invokes a series of events which Richard must work through to discover the truth.

Did I enjoy this book? Absolutely - yes, it was classic Edwards in my opinion and contained all of his trademarks - geeky guy whom women wish to seduce!?; Internet trails; seedy goings on and most of all - an attractive flame haired heroine. I was drawn into the story and although it was slightly ridiculous at times, it remained entertaining throughout.

I have now purchased one of Edwards' collaborations with fellow author Louise Voss. I hope it's as good as all of his other work.

Not bad- let down by the narration!

An interesting story (but no where near as good as The Magpies or Follow You Home). It's really let down by the narrator... the protagonist's voice is fine (although he doesn't sound 27) but the voices for the females and Americans are terrible! Cringe worthy!

Disappointed listener

The story lacked any substance and seemed so improbable. The narrator tried to do accents and failed miserably. The female voices sounded like they were mentally disabled women, the other male characters all sounded odd and the American accents were the worst I've heard. Maybe, had the narrator just used his own voice, it would have been more tolerable. I suffered through it because I didn't want to be one of those readers who didn't give it a chance in case it turned out ok but am sorry to say I was very disappointed.
