This is not the ORIGINAL Aftershocks as written in 1985 and not as GOOD!!
on June 16, 2013
I have Aftershocks the original book by Ms. Coulter and when this "Revised""Intermix" came out on Kindle, I thought "Oh, boy one of favorites" and I bought it. I was sorely disappointed......this one is not nearly as good. I'll not go into the storyline because I reviewed the original and you can read it on "see all my reviews" site. I gave this a 3 stars because the story is the same. The big problem with this revision is some of the original very funny lines between the heroine, George and the hero, Elliot have been changed. For instance; Elliot invites George over to his place for a barbecue and in the original book, when she accepts she asked "What's your speciality?" He winked and replied "It's called foreplay, George." Funny. Right? In the revised edition His reply is "wait and see". Wait and see! What the HECK is funny about that? This is not the only funny dialouge that changed, therefore to me, it made the story bland. My advice is.......find the original book!!! You will enjoy it a lot better. It is the high 5 not this one.
Good reading to all.
