    "Great Story"

    I am listening to this book for the third time. I love Heather O'Neill's voice and this is a great story.

    "Not a believable premise"

    So, while I did enjoy the narration, I found the premise of this story to be rather unbelievable. The parts I did like were the actual detective work - gathering information and pinning down the suspects. The waxing poetic about the beauty of the communal lifestyle was over the top. No way could I buy for even a second that someone could be an exact double of another person, and her friends would not notice. But, not a bad story.

    "What a wonderfully written book!"

    I stumbled upon Tana French's Into the Woods and discovered what a great read it was. Or, shall I say, a great listen. Tana French is a fantastic writer with the ability to make you FEEL as if the characters are totally real, and their emotions and decisions and frustrations fit right into your psyche as if they were old friends. This book is loosely a 2nd in a series, as I have already downloaded and listened to her other two first before this one, it seems they are tied together thru some character connections.

    If you like the irish accent, soft lilt of a female voice and feeling a book deeply, and being able to picture your characters, download this! You won't be disappointed. And, while you're at it, grab her other two!! She's quite brilliant.

    "The Likeness"

    The story was a little slow going. I kept waiting for something really exciting to happen and it never really did.

    "Better Than Her First"

    I enjoyed this book significantly more than "In the Woods" and I think this narrator is better as well. The story is engaging, surprising at times, and touching. However, I personally find it frustrating and annoying (especially in an audiobook where I can't just skip ahead) when a character consistently makes foolish or harmful choices. I don't really enjoy self-destructive characters and Tana French excels at writing them!

    Still, I'm giving it 4 stars because she is an excellent writer with an excellent narrator, even if I find her characters maddening.

    "suspend your disbelief"

    No two people look or act enough alike for this story to be believable. It did hold my attention and I thought it was well put together. But, please, enough with the metaphors.

    "WOW !!!"

    I thought this book was fantastic! It drew me in and totally engrossed me. The characters were intriguing, complicated and very interesting as was the storyline. I loved most of the characters but hated one or two! This was an immensely well written "who done-it". The narrator did a perfect job!

    "Transporting, Tender, Lyrical..."

    I'd never heard of Tana French before purchasing her first book, and was instantly hooked. This is undoubtedly my favorite of the three for its ability to cut deep to the heart of our universal longings for "home" and "belonging" contrasted with the gritty world of an Irish detective novel. The characters are mesmerizing, beautifully characterized, and the narrator is bewitching. Tana's language is luscious -- can't think of a better word -- and the lyrical voice of the narrator makes me smell the sweetness of the grass, the sweat of the characters and the longing in their bones to belong. If this sounds vague, trust me -- I'm just trying not to spoil the story. Above all, Tana is an Irish storyteller on par with the greatest.
