What would have made The Cove better?

Catherine constantly repeated events by having another character say / relive it. It was like she had to write a certain number of pages. BORING to the extreme .. this said, the mystery portion of the book was great. A good story.

Would you be willing to try another book from Catherine Coulter? Why or why not?

No more Coulter for me. Having never read her before, I assume she also writes romance novels.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

The narration was good, but the pace of the story was painfully slow.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Cove?

I would cut each and every time she repeated the telling of an event already explained in detail earlier.

Different narrator would help this tremendously.

Has The Cove turned you off from other books in this genre?

What character would you cut from The Cove?


Any additional comments?

Although the story was interesting, the story never really flowed. I never felt connected to the characters in any way.
