Faithful Place


I got to read this book because of a book swap. Hurrah for discovering new authors! I'm always intrigued by women who write in a genre dominated by men, like Octavia Butler and Ursula K. Le Guin.

Tana French does not disappoint, She successfully captures the voice and point of view of hard-boiled Undercover detective Frank Mackey and shows us gritty (fictional) Faithful Place in all its glory.

As it was a mystery, I managed to keep myself from reading the ending immediately -- and I'm glad that I did.

I am definitely going to track down her other books and read them.

I have her other books! I'll bring it sa susunod na swap. (Pero syempre if you can afford it, it's a good idea to have your own copies. Magaling siya.)

:D

Yay, thanks Eliza! Binili ko yung In the Woods. Iniwan ko sa kapatid ko sa States para mabasa rin niya. :) Yung second book na lang ang kelangan kong basahin! Mukhang maganda rin.
