Publisher's Summary

Tana French's debut, In the Woods, hit the New York Times best-seller list and drew rave reviews from the Times (London) and Booklist. Picking up six months later, this riveting sequel finds Detective Cassie Maddox still scarred by her last case. When her boyfriend calls her to a chilling murder scene, Cassie is forced to face her inner demons. A young woman has been found stabbed to death outside Dublin, and the victim looks just like Cassie.

    "Mirror"

    Almost unbelievable premise, turns into a really gripping story of murder and psychology. Heroine detective is really a delight. Great depth of plot and great character readings.

    "oh man, this narrarator...."
    What did you love best about The Likeness?

    this is the second tana french book i've listened to and i like the characters and really liked this story in particular--but this narrarator is just *killing* me. i think its her accent (irish) which normally i feel like i'd enjoy or be fine with but it--and she--is driving me absolutely bananas. its totally not fair of me because its the Dublin Murder Squad for crying out loud! but i keep fighting the urge to turn it off. i'm sticking with it because the story is a good one but thankfully the narrarators are different for the other two tana french books. its just that my ears hurt :(

    Story
    "HAD TO FORCE MYSELF TO PUT IT DOWN AND GO TO SLEEP"
    Where does The Likeness rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    At the very top.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Cassie, the main character. She's so complex and fascinating. You can't stop listening to her tell her story.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Loved the scenes when "Lexy" (Cassie) and the Friends were hanging out enjoying being in the house together.


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

    Several, but I don't want to be a spoiler!


    Any additional comments?

    Tana French is an amazing author. I listened to "The Likeness" after finishing "Into the Woods". Her characters are so engaging; you feel like you're walking away from personal acquintances when the story is done. You want to keep in touch with them to see how their lives are going. I really hope there are more stories featuring the characters in "The Likeness" and "Into the Woods".

    Story
    "Needs to be re-recorded"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I couldn't finish the book. I got more than halfway through and quit. I just simply could not listen to any more because of the narrator. That phony brogue was so distracting.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Tana French? Why or why not?

    I loved her first book in this series and I just downloaded the next book.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Heather O'Neill?

    Steven Crossley did a great job of narrating In the Woods.

    What does Heather O'Neill bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She brought this book to life, I loved listening to it!


    Any additional comments?

    Love the series and can't wait for more! This book does not disappoint.

    What did you love best about The Likeness?

    Loved the narrator and story, I reccommend reading the first book in the series 'into the woods' first to get a better understanding of what's going on in Cassey's head, though it's not as good as this one. Next two are good as well but this one is my favorite!


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

    yes


    What about Heather O'Neill’s performance did you like?

    I could listen to her narrate all day, every day.

    Story
    "Improbable, yet interesting."

    On the plus side, the actual mystery, the who done it and why, was pretty interesting, as was the social dynamic portrayed. The characters were were fairly well developed, although some were cliched. The narrator was, in nearly every respect, excellent, sounding distinct regional and class dialects. The only place she didn't do quite as well was in a brief segment of the book where she takes on a pretty bad Australian accent. On the downside, I thought the book was overlong by about 1/3rd. The first two to three hours were tedious and felt padded. Also, the premise of the story and some of the police procedures were pretty unbelievable. All that said, it was an enjoyable listen, well worth the credit.
