This book was OK. Toward the end, it became verbal diarrhea in a sense because she went on and on and on and at one point, I was ready to threw in the towel. It became very boring, so I found myself reading the same paragraphs over and over because I couldn't get into it at all. The concept was good but the ending was definitely not great.
I really wanted to like this book but found myself bored and unable to connect with the main characters.
Long time readers of the Dublin Murder Squad will appreciate the emotional unraveling of the mystery and the well written introspection. Not quite as good as French’s other novels, but still definitely worth the read.
I am 150 pages into the very slow moving story. I don't think that I will finish it. I feel as if I am slogging through a very boring stream of consciousness with no end in site.
The bickering between the cousins is exhausting and painfully boring. It started out strong but now it’s just dragging on and going nowhere. I keep hoping for some progression in the story but it’s like the same scenes keep getting rehashed over and over.

Thought this would be an interesting, mysterious type of novel. No suspense, what little there is doesn’t have any meaning - I only finished it because I spent so much money on it. It was a chore to finish and highly unsatisfying. And I’m a fan! 😭
Tana French is simply one of the best at writing about “normal” people coming unmoored and what happens when they do. I finished this book a few days ago but I just can’t stop thinking about it. There are so many levels to the story!
I say ‘‘tis about few books. I didn’t,t finish reading this book. It was moving so slowly I jut stopped reading. sorry, but it just didn’t appeal to me.
Dull slow start too boring to even finish. Heavy English accent in extremely fast speech patterns difficult to follow.
I felt like bits and pieces of the story were amazing, and the rest was a bit boring. I had to force myself to read the last 60 pages or so. I saw the big reveal coming from chapters away and felt nothing towards the main character. Better luck next time.
Beautifully written, amazing insight into a person’s persona. What are we truly capable of, as individuals? Descriptive, to the point of feeling as though one is a part of the story. Thank you, Ms. French. Can’t wait for your next, although this one will stay with me for quite a while.
Great story, interesting characters. The end left me dangling from a cliff! :-(
