What Members Thought

This is one of this books that I kept coming across and could never decide if I wanted to read, so I finally did. Unfortunately those are hours I will never get back.

The first two hundred pages were slow going as I would read 30 pages and then get bored and go do something else, but I was intrigued enough to find out what happen to keep going.

There's a section in the middle that it spends up and is enjoyable, but the last hundred or so pages degenerates into this horrible whining mess. The end
tana french is a writer who knows her shit, in every sense of the word. she knows language and how to use it like a balm and like a weapon, and she knows how to tell a hell of a story. i read 'the likeness' first and i didn't know, going into this, that it was narrated by rob and not cassie. i loved that-- i loved that it was still french's prose but in a different voice. i now cannot wait to lay hands on the third one, and to find out what she will do with mackey's character in it.

I'll think of what to write later.
Wow! Just wow.
