Review: In the Woods

In the Woods In the Woods by Tana French
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Well, folks, if you like a little closure in your novels, look elsewhere. I'm incensed at this ending! One horrific murder solved. The big one you waited to figure out for 429 pages? Apparently not necessary.

This is my first Tana French book. The writing is incredibly good, descriptive, inventive... any number of flowery adjectives will do. French's characters are brilliantly realistic. And by realistic, I mean they're so well written you might want to strangle them at times. As gobsmacked as I feel at getting such a hemorrhaging open wound of an ending, In the Woods has made a fan of me.
