5 stars is i love and i will read agani and again. 1 is i hate and i never want to hear about it ever again. YES = :))) - NO= :'(
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.
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.
Story, characters, description of settings, and narrator has great Irish brogue!
His Irish brogue and rough-edged voiced----perfect for a "detective".
His affection for his disturbed sister, and his understanding of humanity.
Really GREAT listen! I kept listening when I got home from my walks.
I like the way she presences complicated characters. Loved the mystery with multiple possible scenarios and the different characters' choices.
Must like long detailed story.
I have read or listened to all of Tana French's Murder Squad series. They are all wonderful and Broken Harbor is as good as I had hoped it wold be. Enthralling, engaging, riveting, heartbreaking. I took my mp3 everywhere, I couldn't bear to turn it off.
The mystery is well-plotted and complex enough that I was stunned by the resolution. But really, it is French's characters, their emotional depth and richly detailed lives, feelings, relationships, that grab and hold you.
If you enjoy Kate Atkinson's books, you will probably like Tana French's even more.
this is the fourth in a loose series about detectives in the dublin murder squad, and while the least excellent so far, is still good. the stakes here don't seem high enough, for the detectives or for the murderers. too much is told in backstory and only occasionally does it feel scary or like anything is at risk.
the performance is great. her writing is great. the story just isn't as great as the last three books.
Better than the typical murder mystery. Looks at character flaws in all of the characters. Brilliant bitter sweet ending.
voice, inflection, adding him to my list of fav narrators.
bit of emo there
Always love her books and this is an absolutely absorbing story from a great author.
Wonderful variety of voices.
Addictive, Riveting, Sad
Yes, little hints dropped here and there about the unknown, things not being what they seem.
The Irish accent.
Really learn about the family, the crime and the detective. Excellent character development
