    Story
    "What can I say? I LOVE this writer."

    Because I like her previous books so much, I was afraid this one might be a disappointment. It's not.

    The author can reach right into your guts and twist everything into knots. Her stories are about love, connection, joy, sacrifice, sadness, and betrayal, all cloaked in mystery. Reading her books are like unwrapping a package, layer after layer, not knowing what you will find, yet never being disappointed.

    "Great Read! I'm sad that I finished it!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Broken Harbor to be better than the print version?


    Any additional comments?

    This was a great story, written very well, and with a great narrator. I honestly cared about the characters and found myself making excuses to keep listening (one more trip around the block, headphones on while gardening, while at work, getting ready in the morning...).

    "My favorite from the series"

    I think this is my favorite of the Dublin Murder Squad series. I really couldn't see how everything was going to turn out at the end and tie together. Some surprises along the way and a great narrator make this credit worthy.

    "Another Winner"
    If you could sum up Broken Harbor in three words, what would they be?

    enthralling moody dark


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

    Iron Mountain by John Hart. I love both these writers. One really gets absorbed by the protagonist in that he has something dark in his past. You know it's going to come out in some awful way. There is always the feeling of something about to happen and trying to second guess the writer makes for a really fascinating read.


    What about Stephen Hogan’s performance did you like?

    I loved it. I love a reader that is so adept that one knows who's talking by the slight changes in his voice.


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

    The confession, It was so plausible.


    Any additional comments?

    I love Tana French

    I have purchased over 400 books. I have high standards for writing and content, but indulge in "travel trash" or fairly good entertainment.

    Story
    "Good but not her Best."

    I have been waiting for several years for a new Tana French novel to be available. I was really a bit disappointed. I love her skill, I love the narrator. The story was a little dark and narrow for me. It was definitely intense, a real mystery, and shows her talent. I was not entertained in the same way as Faithful Place, which I will listen to for a third time. I am a great fan of hers, don't dispute her talent. Admittedly, I am a person who goes for a bit more feel good. It gave me such a sense of dread because I actually believe that places can be powerful enough to destroy lives. Don't get me wrong this an intense well written mystery. a little too heavy for me. And Faithful Place was not - go figure.

    Story
    "Very Well Put Together"
    If you could sum up Broken Harbor in three words, what would they be?

    Suspenseful, intricate, sad.


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

    It did actually - and that doesn't happen very often. She did a good job with her twists, keeping you guessing about what was going on, and working the tension in the subplots so you couldn't quite relax. I listened to this whenever I got a chance, wanting to know what would happen next.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The book is kind of enormous - hard to pick one. I liked the scenes with Mike and his sister, getting to see a sweet side and an insecure side of this guy who seems kind of hard. His scenes with Richie are also good. French built good characters through a lot of good dialogue here.


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

    The gradual reveal of events in Mike's childhood was effective. He becomes much more human through the course of the book.


    Any additional comments?

    I like Faithful Place better, but this was a good read. French gets very involved in melancholy, which wears me out a little, but she's a very good storyteller ultimately.

    "Very Good!"

    A good though tragic story. Stephen Hogan did a good job reading the uptight Scorcher Kennedy.

    "Love the characters"
    Any additional comments?

    I've listened to all of Tana French's mysteries because I love her characters so much. Her plots tend to be too implausible for my tastes, but I'm not a huge fan of the mystery genre.

    Story
    "The whole is greater than the sum of its parts"

    The plot was stretched a little thin at points, but the atmosphere and the narration easily overcame that. While listening to this book, part of the fun is to guess which character will narrate the next book in the series and how will that person's interior life differ from the external persona presented in this book. Overall, this is a wonderful series.
