Get the book, the narration is just annoying.
Much like the other Tana French books, similar to the Shetland series and the "Vera" mysteries
I can't say enough to warn you away from the audible version. I know some people have said the Irish accent is unintelligible, which it's not, really, but the narrator is difficult to listen to, overly dramatic, and at times screechy. His interpretation of the main character's sister is enough to make you as mad crazy as she is. I finally stopped listening and bought the book during one of her extended rants.
The mysteries within the mystery itself will keep you reading, just read it and enjoy your own voices for the characters.
Right up there in line with the best
The depth of character development draws you in, you can believe that these are real people and you are right there with them. It's so real.
My favorite character is the lead character, Mike. His back story is tightly integrated and slowly revealed. Stephen's performance, with all its emotional strength, brings his gruff but sensitive nature to life,
I didn't have an extreme reaction to this book but I was transported to Ireland and Broken Harbour at each listening.
Post holidays, I was hoping for a good story to get lost in. Broken Harbor did not disappoint. Tana French develops unforgettable characters and plot. The performance was spot on. My one criticism: it could have used tighter editing. All in all, a great listen. I will definitely be getting all of her novels.
If there was more action,even the interrogation gets boring after 3hrs of it
No but I want a refund, I kept waiting for something to happen
If there was more mystery before the conclusion even if the detective went down the wrong path a few times,it spends hours in the interrogation and never leaves
Wasting my time
Although disappointed that prior characters from books 1 thru 3 didn't show an appearance, I still enjoyed this Murder Mystery. It really is a stand alone book, you do not need to read the prior 3 in the series, but they are well worth it. Broken Harbor has more of a connection to Det Kennedy than you might think. When a young family is murdered, 2 sleeping children smothered and both parents knifed with only the mother surving; Kennedy and his newbie detective partner unravel the clues to find their killer.
I couldn't finish this tale. The reader was very good; the plot sounded interesting but it moved at a snail's pace to me.
