Yes, if I would still be surprised by the twists and turns.
Yes, the complex plot kept me guessing.
The Irish accents were remarkable but almost transparent; very convincing and consistent, identifiable characters.
The autopsies were gripping, not just gruesome.
Another fantastic story in this series.
I would cut about 1/4 of the book out. Tana French had to have been paid by the word. It's a good story but very bloated. on and on and on and on ..... The feeling of suspense is ruined by so much ruminating.
EDIT and then edit some more.
I liked the narrator.
Probably. Any C list Lifetime actor.
Why do good authors go "bad"? I was so excited to start her new book about half way thru I wanted to rip my ears off.
Yes - already have.
No - first one.
I was very surprised by the ending.
A little bit slow to start - but don't give up. It gets really good!
I listened to all four of Tana French's books. I loved that each successive book was about a character that was introduced in the previous book. If you are looking for a good, involved story that keeps you guessing and "then having that how did I not see that coming" moment, then you will love reading these books. Tana French is a craftsman at telling one story and once the book is finished realizing that there was so much more going on under the surface. The Narrator was excellent, especially considering the accent. I had no trouble telling the individual characters apart. It was a pleasure listening to this book.
the narrator, the story, the characters!
this is better than a dragon tatoo series
every characther has it's voice, it is an unbeleivable performance
it made me said and even tearful in one place, I do not really get this way about fictional characters
This was a thrilling experience created by an author and an artist. Thank you so very much.
This book was great.... Crazy crazy crazy
Yes! Couldn't stop listening
I love mysteries in a different country. This was Ireland and you have the mystery and a new culture all thrown in together. I love the accents and I learn a little something that I did not already know about the country.
Loved the story and narration - very good book.
Tana French is a terrific writer! The narrator was great except I did not like his portrayal of the main character's sister - other than that, excellent narration.
The book was okay a best - if it is the best of the series I am sorry to say I am done. My negativity could stem from the style of writing which was much too long winded, I found myself drifting off while listening and figured out the ending within the first third of the book.
The family situation of Kennedy was a distraction that added little substance to the story.
No I haven't ... The reading of this story was as good as it could be. I cannot fault the performance.
If you can make reality series hits I guess you can do it with this as well. Not a story that I found myself saying. This would be a great movie..... but who knows.
Very good. The narrator is great at the accents and making clear who is talking. Really enjoyed listening to him. The story unfolds gradually and has twists and turns that ultimately become clear. It kept me very engaged.
