    Story
    "Strong Characters, Dark Theme"
    If you could sum up Broken Harbor in three words, what would they be?

    Strong, and sometimes shocking story. A reminder that down turn economics of the day, does not stop at the U.S. shores


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

    There were many so twists and turns, the story held my attention through out.


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

    The wifes detail of the slow disintergration of her family as a whole and each individual
    felt very plauible and was nicely done.


    Any additional comments?

    French's ability to plug into the male characters, and her unblinking details of events kept me thinking that this must be written by a male. I have listened to the other books available on Audible, but still checked to ensure it was the same writer.

    I was a little disappointed to find that the none of the main characters from the other books were intergrated into the storyline. But once I got plugged in to the story it did not diminish my enjoyment.

    "Worst Tana French book I've read!!!"

    I've read all of Tana French's books and have loved them. This by far is the worst book she has written. The plot was horrible. I hope the next book is better.

    "Keeps you guessing"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Broken Harbor to be better than the print version?

    Yes. Listening to the book is a much richer experience.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Neither, but it kept me guessing "who done it" and why.


    Any additional comments?

    I have read all Tana French's books. This author is good!

    "This is her best yet!!"

    The character development in this book was wonderful and the story just pulls you in and won't let you go. The narrator was excellent and I loved the way he was able to change his tone as he was narrating the various characters.
    I have listened to her other books and loved them but I think this is the best yet. She has a special way of getting you absorbed into her characters. The two detectives in this story are both so compelling.

    "Another Great one from Tana French"

    I love Tana French. She is a good writer with many insights. She keeps you guessing until the end. I really like how she solves a crime and looks at the personal life of the investigator at the same time. I didn't want to put the book down.

    Story
    "Well Done!"

    Absolutely no spoilers…

    Broken Harbor was a solid, psychological, murder mystery written from the perspective of a veteran detective, Michael Kennedy. It possessed captivating and dynamic character development and delivered highly enjoyable work and personal interactions.

    Early into the book, I found myself become engrossed to the setting’s very current and relative economic/social tone. The plot was quite engaging, and I found it hard to put down about half way through. Although I am, at times, disappointed by fictitious, unrealistic methods and instruments of investigation which many “crime” mysteries seem to employ, Tana French obviously did her homework by staying with real, but very intriguing, investigatory techniques, all while keeping it “light weight”.

    The narration and sound quality were good.

    I highly recommend this (4.5 star) novel.

    "Loved this one!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Great story. Believable characters, unexpected ending.


    What other book might you compare Broken Harbor to and why?

    I loved listening to all of the previous three Tana French novels.


    Any additional comments?

    Great book to listen to if you are taking a "road trip". Keeps your mind engaged for hours.

    "another wonderful Tana French story"
    Where does Broken Harbor rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's one of the best. I love Tana French's stories, and enjoy even more the way she unfolds them.


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

    The twists and turns of the plot were fun to follow, and kept me guessing until the end.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I loved the hospital scene where the murderess confesses. It's told in a drugged, dreamy voice, and is very compelling.


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

    The scenes where "Scorcher" deals with his mentally ill sister were really strong.

    "Another Good Book from Tana French"

    It was good, and highly recommended if you liked the first 3... but... but nothing... it was good i liked the twists in the story and the personal life of the detective as well.... but it didn't hit me as the last one did... in my opinion the 3rd book was the best one... the only bad thing in this book is that the cause of the cause of death wasn't clear.... you will understand when you have a listen to it.

    GREAT READ AND A MUST

    Cheers and Enjoy.

    "ug - sad with a side of really depressing"

    I'm a Tana French fan. So much so that I bought and listened to this book, without reading a summary or any reviews. Her first three books were terrific. Broken Harbor is the story of a detective investigating the murders of several family members. I won't give anything away but will say that there are a couple parallel stories happening and the are each, in their own way, extremely depressing. They each start with a sad premise and as you get into the really well written details, they get gut wrenching and then just really movingly sad. If you're a happy person, this book will make you sad. If you're a sad person, this book might put you into full blown depression.
