I picked this book up over the summer on a recommendation from a friend. I was actually a little unsure as I had been devouring the latest teen books and wasn't sure I was ready to read a serious mystery while lounging by the pool. Honestly, I wanted a quick and easy read but this, the story of the investigation to find the killer of a young girl, grabbed my attention from the first page.
What I liked about In The Woods is that Tana French did not write it to be pretty. The descriptions are gritty, the characters have flaws, and even the plot and resolutions during the story will not always leave you feeling content.
My only real complaint about the novel might be the length as I felt it was long at some parts just for the sake of being long. Maybe French wanted her readers to feel how dragged out the case was for the main characters, Detectives Ryan and Maddox. As a reader, I got frustrated when the detectives did and felt invested in the quest to find the killer of the young girl.
Oh, and the story takes place in Ireland so, if you're like me, you'll read the entire thing with an accent. I hope I'm not the only one who does that
