The story itself was pretty good, the writing was a bit crappy -- she needed to hang around with REAL cops or do more research to learn how to talk tough. Most of the police interaction wasn't even close to realistic but the story was amusing. Her leaping back & forward was ackwardly put, it wasn't clear exactly where you went for a paragraph or two. Expecially on the Taylor parts.
The narrators needed to be more balanced. Renee delivered her usual great performance - Paul was too lackluster and tended to make his portion drag.

What disappointed you about Beyond Eden?
I am only half way through and don't know if I can - or even want - to finish this book. The only character in this book I can stomach is Taylor - he seems to be the only normal one in the bunch. Eden/Lindsey is a completely spineless wuss! While I could feel real sympathy for her at 16....by the time she hits her 20's, I am like, really?? Find your spine and tell that crazy moranic family to go jump off the Golden Gate bridge. Yikes, she is annoying....
Has Beyond Eden turned you off from other books in this genre?
What do you think the narrator could have done better?
The narrators were ok - I just don't usually care for 2 narrators doing a book, it seems disjointed and often pulls you out of the story when the voices change back and forth.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Anger at the sheer stupidity of the main character and lack of spine. Her family is supposed to be evil - but really came across as cartoon villains. And have mercy - way too long to get the story told. Just scene after scene of this spineless woman trying to grow a set and stand up for herself. Really tedious.
Any additional comments?
So - maybe I'll finish it - but probably not.
