[LAWS] One good read deserves another : 'Likeness'­ by Tana French

  • May 11, 2013 · 5:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

'The Likeness', a follow-on story after 'In the Woods', this time focusing on Cassie, and told from her point of view as she takes on an undercover assignment to discover the murderer of a young woman.  This is the NY Times review of this book.

You don't have to read 'In the Woods' in order to read this one.  Cassie's character was introduced in that book but that story was told by a male detective colleague of hers.  We had a book discussion of that recently. This story (Likeness) is told by her.  Though if you want to read 'In the Woods' too, you can, since this discussion on 'Likeness' doesn't take place till May.  I hope that is plenty of time for your enjoyment.

For our discussion, I picked 'Bar Food' which is on Wilshire in West Los Angeles.  It is a modern style restaurant, not your pictured as a 'bar' scene, not crowded or packed and they serve 'home' cooking from English and Irish genre.  They have a happy hour that is 'happy'. I have set the time to be at 5 p.m. (the beginning of the happy hour, runs for 3 hours) to ensure that we have a good table and plenty of time.  I believe that you can order from the regular menu as well.


Please join me for another great read and fun discussion.
