    Story
    "glad I was introduced to thus Author."

    Good narrator, needs an Irishman to create the tone and atmosphere. my second book from this Author, gives a gripping read taking one into realms of human behaviour around relationship struggles within families . simple decisions and resultant actions and their long term effects . social and religious taboos are hammered home without mercy.
    not for the feint hearted.

    "Excellent listen"

    One word fab! I'm so glad I picked this after reading the reviews - thank you to the reviewers! This is my 2nd Tana French book - 1st one was great and Hugh Lee was very very good so dubious with a different narrator but all concerns gone - was brill!

    Great narration - thoroughly brill listen and Gerry O'Brien does an excellent job. Not your usual thriller with the gore- a great whodunnit that keeps you hooked to the end and some great characters you get to know.

    Not my normal listen and surprised myself! All in all well recommended listen.

    Story
    "Good but ..."
    Would you try another book written by Tana French or narrated by Gerry O'Brien?

    This is the third Tana French I've tried to get into. The underlying story is good (as were the others) BUT there's too much other stuff going on. Very much how to fit a five hour story's into ten hours (or more!). The narrator works really hard to keep the interest going but sometimes even he flags. These books I use as 'fill ins' when I'm waiting for the next credit to appear in my account.


    Would you recommend Faithful Place to your friends? Why or why not?

    If they had the sustainability.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Narration was gallantly undertaken.


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The underlying story - the murders and who did them - was good but you had to wade through an awful lot of other stuff to get there.


    Any additional comments?

    Not a 'fast moving pacey story'.

    "Great Reader"

    Gerry O Brien is one of the best audio book readers, but the book didnt grab me half as much as Broken Harbour. It started well, but I found the family a bit tedious after a while, although the characters were well rounded and well written, the plot failed to surprise.

    Story
    "Great characters beautifully read, but story dull"

    Great characterisation of hero's family. Very good dialogue; and beautifully read by Gerry O'Brien. Main character unconvincing and the plot was a little dull and not very gripping. I was never on edge of seat needing to know what happened next. First couple of chapters were interesting but story never really gathered pace and was disappointing.

    "Poor"

    I would have to rate this as one of the worst audio books I've listened to. To me the characters, situation and language seemed so cliched that it came across more like a Monty Python parody than an original work. To top it all the storyline is so obvious that there is no sense of surprise or mystery whatsoever.

    To be fair the narrator does give it his all, but overall I would have to suggest that you listen to something else!

    "tedious"

    This was my first listening to a Tana French novel and I chose it based on the previous ratings and reviews. The final result was truly disappointing. This book was not for me. I found the pace slow and uninteresting and it seemed to go all around the houses without ever getting anywhere.

    The main character was too cliched and altogether so "just the same" as every other police character we seem to read about these days, with his failed marriage, failure to have time to take care of his child and the usual drinking and eating too much. I found it boring. There was no sparkle.
