What did you love best about The Likeness?
Didn't enjoy it as much as In The Woods but it's engrossing and exciting. This one required the listener to suspend disbelief a little further.
Any additional comments?
Since it's part of a series, I'd like to hear them all. It drives me nuts that Audible only has some of the series and not the whole thing. Not even in order either. Unless you're prepared to learn German, good luck ever moving on to book 3. Or 4. If you don't care about continuity though you can listen to book 5.

Another fantastic story.. Very original characters that make you want to hear more of their story.
I rate this as one of Tana French’s best books, it can stand on its own because of mood and setup.
It is a better book than The Secret History by Donna Tartt and that was a good book, they share some of the setting, mood and some of the social concerns, but the Likeness comes on top because it is less laden with angst and more dynamic. Beautifully written with great characters that jump off the page and a small town that is like every small town, full of secret, full of perceived history and real history.
One of the things that impressed me most was that it felt like it all was happening suspended from shared time in its own universe, without losing credibility. The pace is perfect and the psychological pressure on Detective Cassie Maddox is presented with realism and feeling for her and her likeness.
If you like Tana French this is not a difficult decision, she always delivers more than a thriller, deeper than just a message book or a formula; this is real writing for our times.

Could not put this audio book down. Fantastic narration and excellent characters. Can't wait for number three.

the most implausible of French's books but her writing is sublime enough for me to hang in there. The narrator was wonderful.
This is by far the best book I have listened to on Audible in a year. Great story - intriguing. Well read - apart from the awful Australian accent for one of the characters! I really enjoyed it.
