I bought the Kindle version the day it came out. Then turned around and downloaded the audible version. I don't think I have been this excited about a book since ''The Secret History '' by Donna Tarte in the nineties. This author offers incredible insight into relationships and in family dynamics. Ms. French is a young woman and how she knows so much about life is astonishing. And yes, the plot is excellent too. Thank you Ms French.
everything was perfectly done...characters, plot, narration...
I've read all of Tana French's books and just when I think they can't get any better she tops herself. Faithful Place was by far my favorite and when I saw that her next book was going to develop Scorcher Kennedy's character I was so disappointed. He was such an unlikable character in Faithful Place I really didn't care about him or want to know why he was like he was. I'm so glad I read Broken Harbor though. Outstanding.
The only minor complaint would be the ending. I feel like I did after In the Woods, as if it wasn't wrapped up well enough in the end. It was such a great book that I overlook that. I wish it had turned out differently. I can't wait for her next one!
Highly Recommended! I finished this book in one sitting. Could not stop listening. Truly this is an exciting and engrossing mystery that I personally did not solve until it was completely revealed.
Tana French set this story up perfectly; she wrote characters I cared about; and she gave us true closure in the end. Though I had minor issues as the story unfolded, the timing and pace was excellent. I guarantee no one will be bored while listening to this!
Narrator Stephen Hogan is great and completely authentic, except with his female voices. He needs work on his feminine characters. But I still enjoyed every personality in the book!
In general, better than Faithful Place. Much better pace. I felt FP dragged in places, where this book DOES NOT DRAG!! :) I adore "Scorcher" Kennedy and his crazy sister!
Very clever, interesting and exciting. A mystery/thriller for the mind not full of gun fights or car chases but lots of figuring stuff out and investigating. Sorry I am a reader, not a writer so my review may not be that elegant but this is a seriously good book.
This is beautifully read.
A great fun story, with depth and surprise; it kept moving and I wanted to keep listening.
This book started out well -- interesting and intriguing. But the writer seemed to be in love with the sound of her own "voice" -- and took forever to tell a story. I think she was trying to make the story suspenseful, but it just seemed tedious to me. Almost stopped listening a few times -- and if I had it in paperback I would have just skipped to the end to find out what happened. Oh, well. No more Tana French for me.
there wasn't the layering and vivid description that left such a visual impression as in the first 3 books You didn't feel for any of the characters
none that was one of the problems you never felt for anyone
I had so look forward to this book. I putit on my calendar so I could get it right away. So disappointing. This was so simple. It never involved you in anyof the characters. It s a brutal heartless story. Depressing
