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.

    Story
    "fantasy house and dreamy people"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Likeness to be better than the print version?

    Yes, because of the variation of accent between Irish and British.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Detective Cassie and her BF Sam. And of course Frank


    Which character – as performed by Heather O'Neill – was your favorite?

    The main character and the british accent guy


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, because it is not thrilling as much as it touchy and leave you in a deeeeeep thinking and intense emotions.


    Any additional comments?

    Love the end this time!

    "Engaging"

    The story and performance held my interest. The plot strains the imagination, but the author pulls it off. This is the second novel by the author that I have read. I've enjoyed both but in fact, I liked the believability of the other ( Faithful Place ) better.

    I recommend the book, just be prepared for something designed more for entertainment than Faithful Place.

    "Beautiful writing, rich characterization"

    This is a follow-up to In the Woods, which I also liked very much. In this book, as in that one Ireland is itself a character, and a very complex one at that. The mystery lies in the way French knots the characters together and then works at picking that knot apart. The solution is really a moment in which we see the characters for who they are behind carefully constructed personas.

    Cassie is a wonderful narrator, with a rich and vivid voice, beautifully rendered by Ms. O'Neill.

    Make no mistake, this is a literary mystery for those who thrive on setting and characterization.

    From 4/12/15 on, I will only rate a book 5 stars if it so good I will listen to it again. To date, the Bino series tops that list.

    "Trivial story hardly worth the effort."
    Would you try another book from Tana French and/or Heather O'Neill?

    I am done.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    The Informant


    Have you listened to any of Heather O'Neill???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, she does well.


    You didn???t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I like the detectives, but the story is so trivial I cannot understand why such an undertaking by the police would ever take place.

    "Not as good"

    I really liked "The Woods," which should be read first. I had to suspend disbelief too much in this book -- the main character can act like a B horror movie protagonist.

    However, the book is fairly intelligent and entertaining and I'd recommend it.

    "Very Pleased"

    The Likness is a great listen. I think it holds very true to life and does not end with every detail wrapped up in a pretty bow. The author leaves some things to your imagination. The narrator is absolutely the best a listener could hope for. I highly recommend this, especially if you have read In the Wood by Tana French. I am looking forward to the next release from this author. There are enough turns and twists to keep you guessing what is next, when you lay the book down.

    "I loved this one!"

    This is a sequel to "In the Woods" I picked this first as I have trouble listening to male narrators do female voices. So far I have not found one who does not make all the female voices sound the same, and none in character.
    However, I liked this one so much, I just ordered the other.
    The narrator here is wonderful, and the complexities of all the characters unfolds beautifully.
    Now that I have finished it, the characters as well as the authoress are still developing in my mind.

    "Long and drawn out story."

    Where did all the 5 star reviews come from?? I have never been so bored with a story. I want to return it, but thankfully got this one on sale. The author could have made this a lot better if she cut it in half. Way too much useless filler/garble inserted into a scene when your waiting for something to happen with one of the storylines. I kept thinking, "I listened 30 minutes for that?" Nothing happens for hours, but boredom waiting for an OH WOW or whats next?
    Awful Awful Awful. I'm so disappointed I already bought the next one by Tana French and I so hope it's much better than this one.
    The Narrator was excellant. Whew!

    "Excellent"

    The Likeness is great, it kept me guessing and captured chapter after chapter just like "In the Woods". I hope Audible's customer service comes up with a way to warning me if Tana French comes up with another sequel. O'Neil is an great too. A must have.

    "Mesmerizing, complex, real"

    I loved this book, the narrator, the plot, the writing, the characters. It was as good as the first one,In The Woods. I highly recommend it. The plot complexity, the imagery, the characters all combine to make a fascinating story that I had to finish. I wonder if Tana French will write another. I hope so.
