Several staff members have read and loved Tana French's In the Woods, and I also read and enjoyed The Likeness. We had a lot of customers really like, and a few who were really frustrated, by the ending. How about you? If you haven't read the book you probably shouldn't read this thread.
I felt like the book was really about the two main characters, and less about the plot. So when one of the two mysteries central to the novel is never solved it really didn't bother me. Maybe because I read a lot of short stories and contemporary literary fiction, where the writing and characters take center stage.
We are your friendly neighborhood bookstore, located in downtown Portsmouth, NH. Small but potent, we offer a fine selection of new books with an emphasis on fiction, history, poetry and mystery. We also have a great little kids section, and hold over 100 events a year.
