I have no fucking clue how I felt about this book Because hey beginning Awesome Ending Trash heap that ruined the book for me Let s talk The first half of this book was honestly excellent You can read a thousand reviews talking about it so I ll keep it short The writing is honestly stunning much better in my opinion than Gillian Flynn or Paula Hawkins styles I had no clue where the mystery was going And the lead characters Rob Ryan and his partner best friend Cassie Maddox were super compelling and no romance bonus point I especially adored Cassie fucking Maddox her backstory with a friend from college honestly broke my heart All the ingredients for a perfect book Maybe even a five I like the characters and I like the writing so I should have liked this book rightI am going to try to explain this as spoiler free and what spoilers exist are noted as possible the ending of this book is maybe one of the most unsatisfying things I have ever read in my whole life I am not kidding when I say it was such total trash that it ruined the whole book for me Not One Thing Is Resolved Rob Ryan s character arc Flop My wife Cassie Maddox s character arc Long sigh My favorite pair of besties I don t want to talk about it Mystery Fine sort of chilling but also 1 not really a mindfuck and 2 has shitty connotations The commupence Non ex is tent And the worst part The mystery from twenty years ago that causes this entire fucking BOOK and that was way interesting than the normal mystery Literally no fucking resolution Who did it How did they do it What is up with that hair clip in the forest and the blood inside Rob s shoes NO ONE FUCKING KNOWS I m sure this is framed in the minds of many readers as some kind of deeper meaning about memory You know what I thought honestly Tana French wrote herself into a corner with a fucking ridiculous case and then ran out of time on her deadline and decided to leave it open How not to write a decent crime book 101 And so the only actual thing that is wrapped up is the current case which is the only thing in this entire goddamn book that wraps up and I still don t like it It s tagged Don t say I didn t warn you view spoilerI sort of despise the connotations of a girl pretending to be a rape victim to manipulate her boyfriend into killing someone Like it s creepy but we currently live in a culture that assumes women are liars and this just plays the fuck into it hide spoiler Géopolitique de l'Arabie Saoudite : La guerre intérieure years ago that causes this entire fucking BOOK and that was way interesting than the normal mystery Literally no fucking resolution Who did it How did they do it What is up with that hair clip in the forest and the blood inside Rob s shoes NO ONE FUCKING KNOWS I m sure this is framed in the minds of many readers as some kind of deeper meaning about memory You know what I thought honestly Tana French wrote herself into a corner with a fucking ridiculous case and then ran out of time on her deadline and decided to leave it open How not to write a decent crime book 101 And so the only actual thing that is wrapped up is the current case which is the only thing in this entire goddamn book that wraps up and I still don t like it It s tagged Don t say I didn t warn Les Sept Dormants : Sept livres en hommage aux 7 moines de Tibhirine you view spoilerI sort of despise the connotations of a girl pretending to be a rape victim to manipulate her boyfriend into killing someone Like it s creepy but we currently live in a culture that assumes women are liars and this just plays the fuck into it hide spoiler

review In the Woods ä PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free A gorgeously written novel that marks the debut of an astonishing new voice in psychological suspenseAs dusk approaches a small Dublin suburb in the summer of 1984 mothers begin to call their children home But on this warm evening three children do not return from the dark and silent woods When the police arrive they fi. If I could I d probably rate this at 15 stars it ultimately pissed me off and annoyed me throughout but it was good enough to keep me reading and I suppose that should count for somethingMaybe my opinion has been influenced by reading THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO immediately prior to this one That book wasn t perfect but it had characters you rooted for didn t wallow too much in pop culture references and most importantly IT SOLVED THE FRIGGING MYSTERY Let s go through a few of these points First I don t think I ve ever read a mystery novel with a less likable main characternarrator Rob Adam Ryan is an asshole plain and simple Sure he s been warped by his childhood and circumstances but he does just about every annoying thing you could possibly imagine he constantly navel gazes and feels self pity he sleeps with then immediately plays the stereotypical male I don t want anything to do with you now role with his female partner the person we were told was his best friend and whom he would never ever sleep with he acts like an idiot over the 17 year old villain temptress psychopath whatever betraying his partner and by the end of the book he is worse off than ever I know that lots of detectives esp in hard boild stories are unlikable and have many personal issues but this guy just took the cake I wanted to take a baseball bat to his head To make matters worse French throws in this little gem towards the end of the novelI am intensely aware by the way that this story does not show me in a particularly flattering light I am aware that within an impressively short time of meeting me Rosalind had me coming to heel like a well trained dog running up and down stairs to bring her coffee nodding along while she bitched about my partner imagining like some starstruck teenager that she was a kindred soul But before you decide to despise me too thoroughly consider this she fooled you too You had as good a chance as I did I told you everything I saw as I saw it at the time And if that was in itself deceptive remember I told you that too I warned you right from the beginning that I lieAs if that excused anything and NO she didn t fool me because YOU RE the narrator and YOU RE the one telling the story This paragraph probably ticked me off than anything else in the bookSecond the book seriously dates itself with little pop culture references from Simpsons uotes to mentions of Ricky Martin and The Simple Life Gah The beginning of the book felt like a very special episode of FRIENDS where Chandler Monica and Ross solve a mystery I m a pretty big pop culture type of guy but the references dropped in this novel just annoyed meThe last part is a bit controversial I suppose There are two central mysteries in this book the first what happened to Katy DOES get solved in the course of the novel the big break in the case is our hero realizing suddenly that the murder probably took place in a shed about 20 feet from where the body was found Really No one bothered to think of that for a month but the deeper mystery about what happened to RobAdam and his friends is never resolved Your mileage may vary about how annoying that is Truth be told it didn t annoy me as much as the fact that the true villain of the modern mystery walks without being punished in any way How incredibly unsatisfying I know this was a first novel so hopefully things will improve for her second book I know also that this book won a major award and that lots of people seem to love it to death so maybe I don t know what I m talking about Since this review seems to be read by uite a few people I thought I d include in the review a bit of further rumination that I had in the comments section below In a bit of serendipity I just finished reading Graham Moore s THE SHERLOCKIAN this past weekend In the book there s a uote from the narrator supposedly based on some thoughts from Arthur Conan Doyle talking about how a mystery must have a conclusion lest the audience be left unhappy and upsetCan you write a mystery story that ends with uncertainty Where you never know who really did it You can but it s unsatisfying It s unpleasant for the reader There needs to be something at the end some sort of resolution It s not that the killer even needs to be caught or locked up It s that the reader needs to know Not knowing is the worst outcome for any mystery story because we need to believe that everything in the world is knowable Justice is optional but answers at least are mandatory And that s what I love about Holmes That the answers are so elegant and the world he lives in so ordered and rational It s beautiful I ll take Holmes over Ryan any day of the week

    Read In the Woods – EPUB Some wounds will never heal and there will forever be a Rob Ryan shaped scar in my heartSome books are written deliberately to provoke sadness It's fucking easy to induce someone to tears when the book is about a dying cancer patient with a labrador retriever whose leg has been amputated with one ear missing The most effectively emotional books are the ones where you least expect it The ones that sneak up on youThere are
