I can't remember now which Tana French titles I've read in the past... they were on kindle, and something about that makes them always seem less "real" to me - I can't ever hold on to the titles of thrillers I've read on kindle. Sometimes it's even surprising later to see the actual book and how long or short it was. Anyway, I bought this one in a hardback copy and read it this weekend. I did glance over the poor reviews before getting it, but the thing that stood out to me was that the people who didn't love it said that it was too different than her other work. As I didn't even remember the titles of the other Tana French I had read (I mean, I liked them enough to read her again after reading one, but didn't really love them)... to me this was a good sign, maybe. And it was. I loved this book. I won't give spoilers, but it's tangled enough to keep you interested even if you already know the main answer, if you know what I mean. But the main thing to me is that the writing itself is beautiful. Highly recommended!
