    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.

    "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.

    "Tana French just keeps getting better!"

    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.

    "keep getting better"
    What made the experience of listening to Broken Harbor the most enjoyable?

    everything was perfectly done...characters, plot, narration...


    Any additional comments?

    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!

    ""Scorcher" Kennedy is a keeper!!"

    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!

    "Seriously good book..."

    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.

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

    This is beautifully read.


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

    A great fun story, with depth and surprise; it kept moving and I wanted to keep listening.

    "Tedious"

    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.
