    Story
    "Absolutely gripped me! Heard all of them"
    What did you love best about Broken Harbor?

    Story, characters, description of settings, and narrator has great Irish brogue!


    What about Stephen Hogan’s performance did you like?

    His Irish brogue and rough-edged voiced----perfect for a "detective".


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

    His affection for his disturbed sister, and his understanding of humanity.


    Any additional comments?

    Really GREAT listen! I kept listening when I got home from my walks.

    "Interesting story"

    A sad bit not very interesting story. Her previous work was better and the main character more sympathetic.

    "Completely satisfying"

    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.

    Story
    "she's still my favorite new literary thriller"

    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.

    "Great story, GREAT NARRATION"
    If you could sum up Broken Harbor in three words, what would they be?

    Better than the typical murder mystery. Looks at character flaws in all of the characters. Brilliant bitter sweet ending.


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

    dunno


    What does Stephen Hogan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    voice, inflection, adding him to my list of fav narrators.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    bit of emo there

    "Love all Tana French's novels"
    What did you love best about Broken Harbor?

    The characters


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

    Yes, by sympathizing with every character it was difficult to guess who was capable of what.


    Which character – as performed by Stephen Hogan – was your favorite?

    I liked all of them. Richie and his outfits were funny.


    Any additional comments?

    All of Tana French's books are great reads my favorite is The likeness.

    "Another Excellent Story From Tana French"
    If you could sum up Broken Harbor in three words, what would they be?

    Dublin Murder Squad


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Broken Harbor?

    I don't want to give away anything!


    Which character – as performed by Stephen Hogan – was your favorite?

    Scorcher


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No - nothing extreme, but I thought the portrayal of characters with mental illnesses, and the effect that has on their families, was very well done.


    Any additional comments?

    I appreciate the fact that, from what I can tell, the writing has not been modified for American audiences. I gather the language is authentic, and I find it really interesting to learn what expressions we have in common ("24/7"), and to figure out some of the Irish expressions mean ("Fair play to ya")
