Friday: Tana French, an I Heart Post

There are so many things that I like about Tana French! I think if we were to ever meet, we would be good writing friends.

 

Things that I like about Tana French:

  • She writes in the first person.
  • Her mysteries are character driven.
  • Her plots veer a little towards the realm of the supernatural, especially in the first two books.
  • Her novels take place in Ireland.
  • Her writing feels quick, with just enough carefully chosen words to make it satisfying.
  • Her characters are tortured enough to have a sense of humor.
  • Her first line, “What I warn you to remember is that I am a detective.”
