January 16 & In The Woods by Tana French (book #1 of Dublin Murder Squad). February 13 & Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand. March 13 & Editorial Reviews. From Publishers Weekly. Irish author French expertly walks the line between police procedural and psychological thriller in her debut.
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.
In the book, there's a quote 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 upset: Where you never know who really did it? There needs to be something at the end, some sort of resolution. 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.
That the answers are so elegant and the world he lives in so ordered and rational. View all comments. Misty Branscome I agree with all the negative comments this book really really was bad if I wouldn't have gotten this on audible books and listen to it at work I woul I agree with all the negative comments this book really really was bad if I wouldn't have gotten this on audible books and listen to it at work I would have never made it!
I have been looking for a series of books and was hoping this was the series but unfortunately I don't think anything or anyone could convince me to download the second book in this series! Jenni Spot on, I don't need to leave my review now. Apr 10, Some wounds will never heal, and there will forever be a Rob Ryan-shaped scar in my heart. Some 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 you. There are differing degrees of sadness, the type that makes one curl into a ba Some wounds will never heal, and there will forever be a Rob Ryan-shaped scar in my heart.
There are differing degrees of sadness, the type that makes one curl into a ball, sobbing in the wee hours of the morning. I still can't pass by a bookshelf containing the book Forbidden without recalling that memory.
Then there are books such as these. It doesn't make a person shudder in pain as much as it leaves one with an overwhelming sense of sadness and a feeling of unfulfillment. Of loss. When I picked up this book, so many years ago, I never knew I was setting myself up for heartbreak. Ask anyone who's read this book.
It just sneaks up on you. It makes you fall in love with the main character. It makes you sympathize with him. Rob Ryan is not a bad boy. He's a lost one.
He is the kind that brings out what little remnants of maternal feelings there exists inside me. He is wounded, without being a new adult asshole.
Don't get me wrong, he is sometimes an asshole He is a little boy, who behaves carelessly without intent to harm. He is imperfect, he runs the other way when the going gets tough. He is scared to face the past, he can't think about the future. All he can do is live in the present, wholly devoting himself to his work because it's the only way he can avoid his shadows. He would make a terrible husband. He would make a horrendous boyfriend. He will break your heart, and I don't even care. I just want to love him.
I just want to take care of him.
I want to erase his hurt. I want to obliterate his pain. Rarely has there been a character who has broken my heart so badly. This is a detective novel, but it's not really. Don't get me wrong, there is an ample amount of investigation in the book. It can hold it's own against any fucking detective novel out there. It just doesn't feel that way because to me, this book is more poetry.
I have rarely encountered better writing. I have scarcely encountered more evocative passages. The other books in this series does a better job of investigation, but I don't care. As far as I'm concerned, the series begins, and endsthe universe revolves around this book.

Though the isbn is the same as the one pictured, my edition of this book has a much creepier cover and tagline: Needless to say, I was completely expecting something a bit dark and twisted, a creepy psychological murder mystery with an outcome I never would have seen coming. And I got that. But I never expected this book to leave me feeling so And you know why? Because I cared. Ms French carefully builds up a complex personality for each of her characters, complete with a past, a sense of Though the isbn is the same as the one pictured, my edition of this book has a much creepier cover and tagline: Ms French carefully builds up a complex personality for each of her characters, complete with a past, a sense of humour and some serious issues to go with it all, and you can't help but care what happens to the detectives even more than you care what happens with the case.
Having now read all her other works, I can confirm she isn't just a one trick pony. I also feel more forgiving of this book's ending, which I know bothered many other readers. In hindsight, frustrating as it is, I find it oddly perfect. In The Woods is a deeply psychological read that explores the nature of psychopaths and memory - or lack of.
The story is narrated by Rob Ryan, a detective on the Dublin murder squad, who is sent back to his home town in hopes of unravelling the case of a local child murder. A young girl found dead in the very same woods in which Detective Ryan played as a child. But Rob Ryan has a secret. Years ago two of his friends disappeared whilst playing in those woods and whilst he was with them and a witness to whatever happened, he retains no memory of the events.
His friends were never found. The question is: Is there some piece of evidence that's waited twenty years to be found in those woods? A case like the one Rob and his partner - Cassie - face would leave a very personal mark on anybody, you cannot investigate the murder and sexual assault of a child and keep it just business as usual.
As the investigation progresses and leads the pair in a number of directions only to meet with dead end after dead end, it begins to take its toll on the two detectives, they come out of it very different people from those we knew at the beginning. It seemed a very realistic and rather sad progression.
I'm not saying that every wordy paragraph in this beautifully-written novel was needed, but I personally didn't want them to be taken out. I think the main reason I enjoyed this novel so much was because it is about far more than a murder mystery; it's about all the people involved and how they are affected.
And I was honestly on the verge of tears after reading the ending and then reading friends' reviews of the second book in this series and discovering that we never get to hear more from Rob. There's a touch of love in this book, just a touch, not enough to be called romance. No descriptive sex.
No sweet-nothings. Nothing like that. And yet, it still fucking broke my heart. Blog Facebook Twitter Instagram Tumblr View all 63 comments.

If you like a book to leave you feeling warm and fuzzy at the end, it's not for you. If you like neat resolutions - it's not for you and if you already read this book, you know exactly what I'm talking about. If you hate being left with " What I am telling you, before you begin my story, is this - two things: If you hate being left with a new question for each question that this story answered - well, yet again, it's not a book for you.
But I loved it.
I loved every page of it, every wordy paragraph, every depressing turn of the story, every soul-shattering instance, every painfully real mistake of the protagonist. I chose reading this book over sleep - a decision I almost came to regret later, having to work a hour day on 3 hours of sleep "Hi, it's Dr.
Scalpel yawn please! And it ultimately was fully worth it. What his supervisors don't know is that 20 years ago he was among the three children who went to play in the woods near Knocknaree, and was the only one to come back under unbelievably strange circumstances, wearing shoes full of blood, and with no memory of what happened to his best friends who forever disappeared in the woods.
The investigation forces Rob to revisit the place that has such painful associations for him, and slowly, day by day, rips his heart to shreds and destroys him a little bit at a time. And it's not the murder story stories? It is a reminder that our worst monsters ultimately do live within ourselves, and that we are our own worst enemies even without ever meaning to be.
When I couldn't find it, I responded, bewildered and wary, in the only way I knew how: Rob and Cassie start off enjoying that incredible, intense and yet easy, all-forgiving and natural closeness of a friendship I think every person in the world non-sociopathic, to be exact longs for. It's a friendship too beautiful to not be doomed. It is a friendship that many people do not have a privilege to enjoy after they have grown out of their childhood.
It's a friendship that brings nostalgic longing from the very first pages on which it is described. And it is, without a doubt, my favorite part of this book. Think of the first time you slept with someone, or the first time you fell in love: I tell you that was nothing, nothing at all, beside the power of putting your lives, simply and daily, into each other's hands.
The mystery of what happened twenty years ago to Rob, the psychological fallout he still suffers from decades later, the senselessness of the new murder, view spoiler [the lack of justice as we would have loved to see it done hide spoiler ] , the burden of crushing loneliness, the habitual cruelty of the world, the casual mentions of the depressing parts of the society like the persistent corruption.
None of this is a feel-good reading. None of this has a resolution that the readers hope for or any resolution at all for some of the above! It is painful and yet touching and beautiful, and so unbelievably close to perfect - at least it was for me. I loved it despite or maybe because? I know I will read it again in the future, curious to know how my reading experience will be changed once I know what's coming. In the meantime, I highly recommend it. Not any more. In ways too dark and crucial to be called metaphorical, I never left that wood.

Seriously, man, I wanted to rate this book higher than two stars. I almost went with three, but I just can't do it. This book felt like it ran this long, exhausting marathon only to collapse into a heap, huffing and puffing just before it crossed the three-star line.
Right now it's laying there lifelessly. It might get up slowly and crawl across that line later, but I doubt it. The protagonist of this book really, really annoyed me. It felt like a parody of one of those old black-and-white movies Seriously, man, I wanted to rate this book higher than two stars. It felt like a parody of one of those old black-and-white movies where the picture freezes and the guy steps out toward the camera, lights a cigarette, pulls his hat down, and goes into this long monologue about life or women or his past or whatever.
The action would pick up or a new lead would be uncovered, and here comes Rob rambling on for pages and pages Oh wow! This thing we just found could connect this murder to events from your past! That is amazing! Great job, Cass! Rob steps toward the camera:: Yeah, Cassie was like that. She was always finding connections to things and blah blah blah. She made a great partner because hey remember that time 20 years ago when my friends and I were in the woods and blah blah blah I want to tell you about all the people I work with and give you a brief description of each one of them and also explain in detail how my boss is and blah blah blah.
My mind is trying to remember what happened 20 years ago and you know Cassie and I are great partners and we're best friends and people think we're dating but blah blah blah. Hey, time flies, man. Did I tell you what happened to me as a child?
Did I remind you about Katy? Also, her family sure is weird. The people at the dig site are weird. Everyone is a suspect blah blah blah. Let me pause here to tell you how I deal with my roommate and also O'Kelly and my childhood and my current job and Katy and her weird family and interrogation and coffee and vodka and this dream I had and looking for clues and in the woods and we keep hitting dead ends and and and and and blahhhhhhhhhhhh.

After much waiting and some significant 'biblio' peer pressure, I have finally decided to take the plunge into the world of Tana French and the Dublin Murder Squad. In the summer of , three children went missing in the woods on the outskirts of Dublin.
When authorities arrived, they found one boy, Adam 'Rob' Ryan, delirious and unsure what had happened to him. The other two were presumed dead, their bodies never found. Flashing forward two decades, Ryan has recreated himself, using his middl After much waiting and some significant 'biblio' peer pressure, I have finally decided to take the plunge into the world of Tana French and the Dublin Murder Squad. Flashing forward two decades, Ryan has recreated himself, using his middle name, and finds himself working as a Homicide detective in Dublin.
Partnered with his best friend, Cassie Maddox, they are used to the most gruesome of scenes. When Ryan and Maddox are called to an archeological dig site, they discover the body of twelve year-old Katy Devlin, buried under a ceremonial headstone. This sparks many disturbing memories for Ryan, as it is the exact location of his childhood trauma.
While beginning to amass clues in the Devilin murder, Ryan is forced to revisit his past, told in a number of developing flashbacks. He tries to make sense what happened to his two best friends as he remembers the news they shared leading up to that summer afternoon. The deeper Ryan and Maddox dig into the possible motives for the crime, the more suspects they unearth who might harbour the necessary grudge to kill young Katy.
Could the murder investigation hold the key to solving the crime from that long ago summer night? Ryan struggles to come to terms with this while also balancing the burden of having no means of helping the two people he loved the most. Simultaneously, his personal interactions with Maddox open paths of confusion and animosity that may be irreparable.
French makes her debut in stunning fashion, sure to impress all those who enjoy a police procedural of the highest order. While I have heard much of Tana French in the last few months, I had been inundated with new series in my reading journey that I was not sure I ought to add another collection to my list. However, the series held a few unique aspects, one of which was its setting in Ireland, a place I hold close to my heart.
After allowing myself to try at least one novel, I discovered that French tells a story that proves as gripping as some of the great European series I have discovered in the past couple of years. The Rob Ryan character is both gripping and baffling, which caught my attention from the start. His work on the Homicide Squad and the struggles tied to his youth proved to be a thread throughout the story and remained relevant until the final pages. While French takes her time in the story's progression, the drawn out development is done in such an effective way that the reader forgets the pace at which the story matures.
The plot is both straightforward and convoluted, as the reader encounters twists and dead ends as they relate to motives for the crime. Strains between the characters help bridge portions of the investigation narrative, but might surge into being central plot lines for subsequent novels. French takes on a great deal in her debut piece but comes out of the experience firmly rooting herself in the genre by providing a unique flavour.
I am eager to lose myself in her subsequent novels, which I hope are just as riveting. Kudos, Madam French for blowing my mind and creating an instant fan out of me. I cannot wait to rush into the second novel, hoping that Ryan and the rest of the gang prove equally as compelling. An ever-growing collection of others appears at: View all 69 comments. This was an Edgar Award finalist, and that means a mystery, right? Well, we get a tease at the beginning--little boy survives some sort of mysterious mischief in the local woods, the two friends with him are never seen again, and when he's found his shoes are filled with blood and he's unable to speak or recall anything.
Cool, huh? I would go along for a ride that works out that story how'd the blood get IN his shoes, not just on them, etc. Well, I got all involved in the story, even looked forward to finishing it by reading straight into the wee hours one night, and I could not believe the ending: I call that a cheap trick, and I'm not even going to pick up French's second book with this character if she writes one to find out if she's beginning a series and wants to stretch out the story--I felt cheated, and I'm done.
Although if there is a second book, and any of you read it, you could maybe let me know what's up. View all 35 comments. Because, hey, beginning? Trash heap that ruined the book for me. The first half of this book was - honestly - excellent. I had no clue where the mystery was going. 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, right?
I am going to try to explain this as spoiler-free [and what spoilers exist are noted] as possible: I am not kidding when I say it was such total trash that it ruined the whole book for me. Long sigh. My favorite pair of besties? Fine, sort of chilling, but also 1 not really a mindfuck and 2 has shitty connotations. The commupence?

And the worst part? The mystery from twenty years ago that causes this entire fucking BOOK and that was way more interesting than the normal mystery? Literally no fucking resolution. Who did it? How did they do it? 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 In detective novels including mine and TV series, almost all of the focus is on finding out who committed the murder.
But one of the things I learned while I was researching is that, in reality, identifying the murderer is often the easy part. A striking aspect of In the Woods is its bold resistance to many of the conventional expectations of the mystery genre. In the Woods is not completely obliging on any of these counts. Did you set out to write such an iconoclastic book?
On the most basic level, In the Woods is faithful to that convention: But my favorite mystery books have always been the ones that experiment with the boundaries of the genre: I was just trying to write the kind of book I like to read. Having lost the companionship of his two vanished friends Jamie and Peter, Rob Ryan grows up to form another triumvirate with Cassie and Sam.
Do you see Rob as sometimes striving more to repeat the past than to salvage and redeem it? For him, the past and the present coexist: What are some of your other thoughts about the psychological makeup of Rob Ryan? And what sources did you draw upon—psychiatric research, your experience as an actor, etc. No psychiatric research—at least not for Rob, although I did a lot of research on psychopathology in order to make the killer as real as possible.
For Rob, my main resource was probably my experience as an actor. In the Woods sounds a series of elegiac notes. Is there any golden past for which you catch yourself yearning? I catch myself missing the Dublin I moved to in Because almost nobody had money, back then, culture and conversation were our main currencies. As a result, we seem to have basically nothing but money. Nostalgia is a dangerous thing, though, so I keep an eye on that tendency.
It had its wonderful sides, but it was far from golden. In connection with her own near-molestation as a child, your detective Cassie Maddox observes that children find it almost impossible to resist the promise of marvels—the possibility of entering a magical world. Do you really think adults are all that different?
I think that leap of belief, that capacity to respond to the mysterious unseen and unknown, is one of the most incredible human abilities—and how you respond to the unknown is one of the defining choices that make you what you are. Cassie, as in that childhood story, is willing to take huge risks for the chance of marvels. Is there any chance of a sequel that will tell us whether Rob Ryan solves the great remaining mystery of the story? Share on Facebook. Add to Cart. You had an unusually globetrotting childhood, with stops in Italy and Malawi.
Does their significance change as the story progresses? The loss or absence of stable families is a recurring motif in In the Woods. Why the teaser of the speck of blood on the new murder weapeon?! I was so angry when this book ended. In fact, I read this about 6 months ago and I am still angry. More than a Mystery of Lost Children. One of the best written books ever. French absolutely transports the reader to the scene through her poetic prose. All one has to do is read the Prologue to see it: And when a shadow darkens that perfect summer, we can feel it.
And Rob, one of the main characters, will always remember the golden parts of that day, but not when his two best friends disappeared, when he was left with a sneaker full of blood with no memory at all of what happened when the dark shadow of evil blotted out the sun. To adulthood, Rob will never recall the details and his friends are never found, never heard of, after that day. Those woods in summer - Adult Rob with partner Cassie is now investigating a child's death in the same area.
Of course, his tragedy in youth haunts those woods and Rob's mind. Is it possible there is a link between the two crimes? The author's language is exquisite, so wonderfully readable, perfect. I have read this book several times. My favorite scene: At one point, Rob tries to re-live his earlier experience in the woods by staying at the site, alone, and overnight. It is frightening, incredibly done, and so very real. Another reviewer says that this book "is much more than a detective story.
It is a great novel!
In the Woods Reader’s Guide
Both were excellent. A remarkable book and one of my favorites. Kept assuming there would be a solution to mystery B. Mystery A was obvious. And not to give a solution to the main mystery is truly a betrayal of readers.
Im so sorry I wasted money on book 2 thinking that it just might hold the answer. Anyone can drum up mysterious questions. Honourable writers give answers. Dont waste your money. Sorry there are no negative stars. This book was boring!

Enabled Word Wise: Enabled Lending:For a novel set in Dublin, though, she almost completely does away with the regional patois that makes an author like Roddy Doyle something of a linguistics project for an American. Rob joined the police to become a Murder detective and as a rookie, is briefly partnered with "this cretin called Quigley, who sounded like Daffy Duck with a Donegal accent.
Its silence is a pointillist conspiracy of a million tiny noises—rustles, flurries, nameless truncated shrieks; its emptiness teems with secret life, scurrying just beyond the corner of your eye.
Cool, huh? A mob story set in South Africa has my attention, as does a mob story set in s New Jersey. Nothing like that. The book moves slowly with out any real excitement or suspense. Back to top. Sorry there are no negative stars.
