©2008 Tana French; (P)2008 Recorded Books
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.
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 :(
At the very top.
Cassie, the main character. She's so complex and fascinating. You can't stop listening to her tell her story.
Loved the scenes when "Lexy" (Cassie) and the Friends were hanging out enjoying being in the house together.
Several, but I don't want to be a spoiler!
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".
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.
I loved her first book in this series and I just downloaded the next book.
Steven Crossley did a great job of narrating In the Woods.
Very different and not predictable!
She brought this book to life, I loved listening to it!
Love the series and can't wait for more! This book does not disappoint.
I THOUGHT IN THE WOODS WAS GREAT BUT 'THE LIKENESS' WAS EVEN BETTER. CAN'T WAIT TO LISTEN TO PART 3. I STAYED UP ALL NIGHT BECAUSE I COULDN'T PUT IT DOWN.
Ridiculous premise, but I enjoyed it anyway. I really felt like I was there-great character and location details.
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!
I could listen to her narrate all day, every day.
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.
