Distracted by the character Carey

I accidentally started the 3rd in the series before this and probably would have liked this better if i read it first. My big problem is with Jane's love interest Carey who is introduced here and a significant character in the next. Not sure about the 4th because I think I've now stopped this series. I returned the 3rd book unfinished. Maybe a strong, intelligent and skillful woman like Jane would go for a 1950's husband type Carey but I don't want to watch that. Knowing he was in the background actually distracted me from liking this book as much as the 1st in the series, which I really enjoyed.

Not my favorite Tana French

I love the Dublin murder squad books, although they can be long and tedious. But generally in the end it all comes together in surprise ways, I can’t think of how I would have shortened it without loosing essence and the enjoyment seems worth the pain. Not as much this one.

A gripping and deeply moving story

I have read many stories of WWII, none have moved me so much. A perspective I did not fully appreciate. Similar to All the Light we cannot see. It’s possible that I tested up at the end.

A good book but a little drawn out

I loved the story and found it fascinating. I’ve read a lot of wwIi books but did not know this story of Italy. But the dialog was in my opinion a little drawn out. I think this could have been a great book with a little more editing

Great mix of sci-fi, engineering geekiness, humor and humanistic issues.

I’m sure from time to time some details don’t make sense if you look closely. That’s why I didn’t look closely and just enjoyed a great read.

Definitely off beat. Dark Humor.

What made the experience of listening to Hello Kitty Must Die the most enjoyable?

Story kept moving. Odd twists.

What other book might you compare Hello Kitty Must Die to and why?

I read 60+ books a year and I can't compare this to anything. Closest would be a Kurt Vonnegut

What does Angela Lin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I felt she was the Asian american lawyer character. I felt the character was talking to me and telling her story.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Laughed out loud a few times.

Any additional comments?

I have recommended this to friends.
