    "Excellent Book and Lovely Recording"

    Tana French is a fabulous author. I've listened to all her books and I always prefer to listen because I enjoy hearing them read with lovely Irish accents. Highly recommend this and all her other books!

    Story
    "You'll re-examine your own beliefs about fairness"
    Would you listen to Broken Harbor again? Why?

    Yes. French's stories are well above most in this genre. But this narrator really nailed it for me. Particularly in his characterizations of Det. Richie Curran, the rookie with people skills and compassion, and in his ability to make the egotistical main character, Mick Kennedy, still elicit our sympathy and cheer for him - that's not easy to do with a character who has a chip on his shoulder the size of the Irish Sea.But Kennedy always does the right thing ... or does he?The book addresses several aspects of mental illness sympathetically but with unflinching clarity. Anyone who has experience with such diagnoses in their family or in themselves, will appreciate that the author portrays this with honesty and excellent description on all sides. French ties up all the strings, save for one. And that one ... well, perhaps best not known. The ending surprised and saddened me, but it was as it should be. It'll be interesting to see what comes next.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I was riveted to the story from the first go. Details, details, descriptions that ring true.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Dina returned to the flat. Mick's interactions with his sister were poignant and well-written.

    "Great book! Great Characters! Great Narration!"

    This is my first Tana French book, but it certainly won't be the last. Really well written Murder-Mystery that has everything you could want from a book. Great characters with a lot of emotional depth and interesting exploration into the human condition. Love this book!

    A major plus is that the narrator was great. Great accents, acting, etc...

    Read/Listen to it!

    "Good but not Great"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I think it is a good book, but not as wonderful as her others.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot was exciting, but it went on too long.


    What about Stephen Hogan’s performance did you like?

    He is an excellent reader.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When you learned about Detective Mick Kennedy's past.


    Any additional comments?

    The relationship between Kennedy and Richie is interesting. I felt that for a good detective Kennedy kept coming with the wrong conclusions. Maybe the plot was too much.

    "Amazing reader!"
    What did you love best about Broken Harbor?

    This reader is perfect. He absolutely inhabits the main character/narrator, but he is so convincing In the other voices that at times I forgot it it wasn't a cast of readers. He broke through the line between reading and reality and put you right there.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Made sense. The various tales that make up the whole move inexorably toward resolution, some some tragic, some depressing, some kind.


    Which character – as performed by Stephen Hogan – was your favorite?

    Kennedy


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, way too long, and intense.


    Any additional comments?

    The book moves slowly, and at times I was impatient, but the reader was so excellent, I was happy to hang in there just to keep hearing his voice.

    "What we should expect from Tana French - great"
    If you could sum up Broken Harbor in three words, what would they be?

    Painful challenging complex


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Tana French makes you want to get inside each and every character and think/feel as they do. You want to believe each one but are constantly led to realize their weaknesses and flaws, and must try relying on the judgment and opinion of the next in turn. I am always happy to be pulled along by her narratives.


    Which character – as performed by Stephen Hogan – was your favorite?

    The narrator of course - as it was told through his voice consistently

    "complex story... beautifully written and read"
    If you could sum up Broken Harbor in three words, what would they be?

    Broken Harbor is a complex human drama that focuses on a murdered family in a 'failed' development near Dublin.


    Which character – as performed by Stephen Hogan – was your favorite?

    The main character, Mike Kennedy, was the head of the murder investigation. His character experienced many well-portrayed conflicts.

    Story
    "Irratating hero, mumbling sidekick"
    Would you try another book from Tana French and/or Stephen Hogan?

    Not likely. Hero was full of cant and self-absorption, homilies pouring out about how smart or good he was, overladen with a quite conservative social point of view. The most interesting and well portrayed character was his crazy daughter; she sprang to life when entering the scene.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Remarkably, there was no "ending." The fanciful murders and holes in the walls were never really explained, frustrating a long wait for a resolution


    How could the performance have been better?

    The partner assigned to the hero was given a more heavy Irish accent that often drifted into a mumble and I had to guess at what was being said, even after replaying
