From the beginning you know there has to be more to the story - what is the motive for taking this boy. Great mystery to untangle.
Yes, timing was great - just enough clues to keep you guessing.
No, I like to savor my books.
This is a good, interesting, complex story about family history and the way it draws a person back years later. What made the story incredibly compelling was the performer. I have seldom listened to a reader as perfect for the story as Reynolds was. He was so good, it is hard to evaluate the story apart from his rendition. An award performance.
Faithful place is riveting as are Tana's other books in The Dublin Murder Squad series. I have just started Broken Harbor and I know I will not be disappointed! Tana is very talented and I love The Irish!
Tana's other books are just as intriguing.
He has the best voice for this book.
I laughed, Icried, and wondered all the while who the evil belonged to.
Yes, the pronunciations, dialects of the characters are very importantant to bring the story to life.
As always Tana French manages to keep you completely entranced as the plot twists and turns
Absolutely brilliant performance.
Although not necessary I believe to fully appreciate this book, listeners should experience Tana French's other novels (In the Wood and The Likeness) first.
Yes I would. Tana French's books combine mystery, psychological insights, great character development and writing.
The characters and their interactions with each other. Also their own insights into their behavior and motives.
The family scenes with Frank and his family were always intense.
You can't always go home
Yes-great book. The Dublin murder squad series is different from anything else I've read.
I have to admit that I'm a total Audible junkie. MUST have book going at all times. I may be the subject of a family intervention someday.
Tragic, beautiful, darkly funny.
Excellent reader, wonderful characterizations that were completely believable. Never had that awful shocking yank out of the story that a lesser reader's faulty voicing of a character hits you with. This guy was seamless in his transitions from hard-but-deep Frank to his 9 year old daughter to his haranguing guilt-tripping Irish Ma.
The final flashback had me in tears.
My favorite in the series so far, and truly one of the best books I've heard on audible.
Of the four books in this series - this was probably my least favorite. Maybe because it was the third book in the series, maybe because the characters were less endearing . Not sure - but this one took me longer to get through than any of the others. The Narrator did a great job.
Not really. It was like an Irish John Steinbeck. Depressing.
Probably. He had an Irish accent, so I don't know how he would be in other books.
I hope not.
The narrator did a great job of performing the dialogues. The Irish accent was a big plus. The story was engaging. The best part of the book was the view of Irish life in a small town.
