Philosophy, history, psychology, - woven seamlessly into details of police work... Friendships and relationships of many flavours - a marvellous book. This was excellent, and I'm not wanting to give away any spoilers.
I'm now off to find more of Tana French's books.
This one is a delight. Complex, compelling, hilarious and poignant, all at once.
Could not put it down.
The Likeness plot is weak and not very believable in my opinion. The novel is written in the first person but there is not enough happening to this character to sustain interest. The dialogue among the various characters is repetitive and, over time, this became boring.
However,I will try another of her novels, Broken Harbour, based on my positive experience with her debut novel.
The Likeness is my favourite thus far, in part because it allowed me to spend more time with a wonderful and intriguing character from In the Woods.
A moody, twisty mystery at its best, I highly recommend The Likeness.
Ms Woods wrote an earlier book, In the Woods, which won the Edgar Prize in 2008.
