I was excited to read this book after all of the great reviews in newspapers and also Amazon and Audible. I was very disappointed in it. It was far fetched and the characters were more like stereotyped caricatures of people. Lots of things made no sense in the story. And on another note, feeding the gulls when you live in a marsh? The gulls are perfectly fine fending for themselves, especially in their environment.

This was a 20 hour listen. It was my first time listening to a Tana French novel. I don't know if it is typical of her books, but I felt like the same information got covered repeatedly and this story could have benefitted from being edited down considerably. Basically my review title says it all for me, overly long and disappointing.

Been slogging through for weeks on end

I'm not sure why it's got such great reviews. I found it to be a very disappointing story. I didn't care for the narrator either. Felt like this book had a political agenda as well. overall it was a waste of money for me.
