The most boring book of the season. Why would I ever believe The NY Times List??? Even the narrator became irritating. So sad to waste my time and money.
Love all of her books but this one doesn’t even sound like her. It sounds more like a travelogue to fill up space. I would not recommend it.
I enjoyed the book and learned a few things about Ireland and it’s customs. The story was believable and the characters were well developed. Narration was great too! Different voice for each character. Good mystery. I love Tana French. I was drawn to her because my sister’s name is Tana, and it is an unusual name.
I really like Tana French and have read all her books. This one seemed more plain to me. There wasn’t as much dark twists and flawed human in-depth personality exploration that she is known and I was expecting. I was hoping this was going to be a good Halloween-timeframe listen but didn’t end up that way. This was good, just not great. The narrator was fantastic however so it was definitely overall enjoyable.
Pretty good as a murder mystery, but did lag somewhat in the beginning. I liked the humor sprinkled in, and the narrator had a great Irish brogue.
Narration was great. Book not so much. I was expecting a psych thriller. Was not at all, could’ve been about half the length - or less
Tana French grew up in Ireland, Italy, the United States, and Malawi. She is a trained actress.
