Review and GIVEAWAY – The Likeness by Tana French

Time’s up! The winner of The Likeness by Tana French is Annie from Reading, Writing, & Ranting! Congratulations, Annie! I’ve sent you an email for your mailing address.

The Likeness
by Tana French
466 pages
Fiction
Published July 17, 2008

Let’s just cut to the chase, shall we? THIS IS THE BEST BOOK I’VE READ THIS YEAR. Truly, seriously, I’m not even kidding, I can’t stop thinking about this book. What’s different from my other favorite books this year? Well, we can’t really compare this book with my other favorite books, as they’re different genres. Soo…just suffice it to say I’ve never given a book the rating I will be giving The Likeness.

You don’t have to read In the Woods to read or understand The Likeness. The Likeness takes place a couple of months after In the Woods ends, and the author deftly weaves together the two storylines. But if you haven’t read In the Woods, just go read it, because it’s good, it really is, it’s just not blow-my-mind-make-me-want-to-be-in-the-book-good.

The Likeness is narrated by Cassie Maddox, who used to work in Murder but now works in Domestic Violence. Her boyfriend, Sam, calls her frantically one day and insists she come look at a body, and when she does, she sees why he was so frantic: the woman looks EXACTLY LIKE HER. Dun dun dun! And even weirder, the woman’s ID says she’s Alexandra Madison, which is the identity Cassie had made up when she’d gone undercover for some drug bust. Weird, huh? It gets better.

So Cassie’s old boss from when she was undercover, Frank, asks her to go undercover AGAIN as Alexandra Madison AGAIN so they can find out who killed the FAKE Alexandra Madison. And she agrees to do it.

So Alexandra (Lexie), when she’s all “healed up” from her attack, goes back to her house, and she happens to live in this huge house with four other people: Abby, Daniel, Rafe, and Justin. Something weird is going on, but Lexie can’t seem to figure it out, and after a while she doesn’t WANT to figure it out. Her four friends have enveloped her back into their life and their familiarity and routine, and their love for one another is so addictive that eventually she’s wondering if she even wants to go back to her old life. Maybe she’ll just stay in this new life as Lexie.

I’m not even joking, go read this book right now. Oh, but read In the Woods first. Sorry. I fro-got.

I wish I could esplain to you the awesomeness that is The Likeness. But I don’t know if I’ll be able to because I’m over here just moaning over how good the book was. My husband would say I’m dirty for moaning like this over a book, but I don’t care.

Tana French is a masterful storyteller, creating a need in my world that I didn’t even know existed. My friend and I wish she would write faster.

Rating: 100 out of 100 (you should note this is the first time I’ve given a book this kind of rating, and it probably won’t happen again for a looong time)

Lucky you! I have an extra copy (and sure as shit this is NOT MY COPY because you couldn’t pry this book out of my cold dead fingers) to giveaway to some lucky duck. I begged and pleaded with Penguin to give me a copy to give away to you peoples, and they graciously agreed. Aren’t they nice? So all you people who don’t win: GO BUY THE BOOK.

Here’s how you can enter:

  • Leave a comment telling me how many pets you have (this has absolutely nothing to do with the book, but “enter me please” is so boring). That will get you one entry. Anyone who doesn’t  do this will not be entered!
  • To get three more entries, post about this on your blog with a link back to this post.
  • If you don’t have a blog, email five friends telling them about this giveaway and cc me on the email so I know you’ve sent it. This will get you three more entries. If you have a blog and still want to email five friends, be my guest.

The whole wide world can enter, but if you win and you live outside of the US and Canada, please understand I will send this book the cheapest way possible. Meaning it’ll get on a donkey, reach the ocean, where it will then end up on a fish, which will deliver it to a whale, which will take it to the shore closest to you, so that some mangy mutt can grab it and deliver it to you, only for you to find that the mangy mutt won’t give it up without exchanging it for a little bit of meat. So beware.

***Edited to add: Deadline is November 4th at 11:59pm, PT.

    No pets. Unless you count a stuffed Elmo.

    You know, I was boycotting this book, because I’m still wondering what happened to Rob in the woods. But now I might just have to read it.

  2. 3m

    I have two cats.

    Glad you liked this one so much! I recently got In the Woods at a library sale, so I need to read that one so I can read The Likeness.

    Please enter me!

  3. raych

    I WILL ENTER!! THIS REVIEW TERRIFIED ME!! ALL I CAN THINK OF IS READING ‘IN THE WOODS’ IN THE DARK!!!

    Ok, enough with the all-caps? I want to win.

    I have no pets unless you count our landlords’ cat which spends more time in our suite than in their house, or my dad’s dog which he loves more than me or any of my siblings, OR my snake which escaped a few years ago and probably still lives in the house we lived at at the time (the landlord was a bitch, so I’m hoping this is true).

    Everything else is dead.

  4. Steph

    I have 3 birds, a bunch o’ fishies and a mini dog/cat/rabbit hybrid of a dog.

    I would love to read this book because you make it sound like awesome-ness

    I posted about the contest ici: http://thekea.wordpress.com/2008/10/21/contest-for-an-amazingly-amazing-book/

    And c’est tout!

    🙂

  5. Natasha @ Maw Books

    After a review like that I seriously would love to check this book out. As for pets, we have zero. My three year old and 18 month old keep me busy enough.

  6. Cindi

    My Gosh! I hardly know how to comment after a review like yours. Of course, I definitely want to read “In the Woods” and “The Likeness!” Also, suspense/thrillers are my favorite book genre. Our family has one mixed breed dog named Beethoven who is 16 years old and a very new addition of a rescued puppy mill beagle, named Daisy. I would be honored to be entered into your fabulous book giveaway drawing. Many thanks, Cindi

  7. Dreamybee

    We have a Basset hound and a dog. The Basset hound doesn’t understand why we got the dog in the first place. He was perfectly happy without any pets in the house.

    The Books I Done Read review just convinced me to read In the Woods, and now yours has definitely made me want to read The Likeness-what complementary blog reading I’ve been doing lately!

  8. bunnyb

    I have no pets. But there’s this cute cat that loves to come over and play 🙂

  9. bunnyb

    I’ve linked your contest on my blog: http://bunnymoney9.blogspot.com/2008/10/win_21.html

  10. Meghan

    Well, now I really want to read this book! I had a bunny, but he passed away last month. =( In theory I have another one that I adopted from my brother, but it’s hard to consider her mine when my parents have her and take care of her.

    So I guess I have 0 pets. Hoping to get a cat after this year though!

  11. Jen Forbus

    I also read IN THE WOODS, but you know I do mystery/suspense over at my blog. I’ll put a link up this morning for the contest.

    As for pets, I’m definitely not in short supply. I have two chocolate labs: Hershey and Nestle. I also have four cats, all rescues: Bailey, Forrest, Amelia, and Isabelle. We have a rip roarin’ good time here at my house! 🙂

  12. Annie

    I’m convinced!!! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE enter me. You’ve reminded me what I love about the internet – finding people who get just as crazy about an amazing book!

    PS I have one dog – Buddy – gorgeous neurotic little poodle.

  13. Julie P.

    I am dying to read this after your review! I’ve been hearing a lot of great things about Tana French (and it’s so exciting to “discover” a new author.)

    I don’t have any pets right now — kid and I have terrible allergies. We used to have a fish if that counts!

  14. a real librarian

    I don’t have any pets right now! I used to have the sweetest cocker spaniel named Molly – she was such a honey!! =)

  15. Mandy

    I have two indoor cats – Marshmallow and Cinnamon. Last weekend a stray cat from outside decided to adopt me so I’m working on building a shelter with a heating pad for her outside so she can stay warm during the winter – now you can say I have 3 cats.

    I’ve also posted the giveaway on my blog – http://weblog.xanga.com/BelleSorrisa/679292160/the-likeness—book-contest.html

  16. Debbie

    Wow. That is some stellar recommendation. You know we are all going to read these two books.
    I have two great cats, a bunch of fish, and a newt. And lots of spiders I wish I could get rid of!

  17. Christine

    Two cats. Working our way up to four cats.

    Wow – I had sort of been ignoring In The Woods, but after this review I’m going to have to read it – and hopefully, I’ll win a copy of The Likeness to follow up with. My Jack Russell Terrier (Bob) will curl up with me so I don’t get scared. Please enter me in the drawing.

  22. Traci

    I’ve got 3 pets – 2 cats and an itty bitty doggy. I’ve always been a dog person, and I love my sweet little pup, who is very insecure and needs constant reinforcement that he’s the best dog in the world and I love him to pieces, but there’s just something about the independence and self-assuredness of my cats.

    I haven’t read In the Woods, but I’ve put it on my wishlist.

  23. wordlily

    No pets here. 🙂

    Just added In the Woods to my wishlist.

  24. writemeg

    I have one golden retriever, Rudy, who is just about the silliest and best dog ever.

    This book sounds amazing. 🙂 I would love to read it!

  28. anne

    I have two adorable and totally different dogs. Guido, A Maltese and Bogie, a cute, small mix, looks like a mini German Shepherd but is a doll. Loved that review which sounds like the ultimate. Thanks.

  29. S. Krishna

    Don’t enter me (though I don’t have any pets) , but I completely agree with your review – this book was amazing!

  30. pussreboots

    I have one calico cat, Caligula. She’s my online avatar.

  31. Jessica

    Trish, I want it! I have one pet: a betta fish officially named Orlando but whom I call “Fishie.” Ahh, I can’t wait for the day when I can read this awesome book with a puppy curled up by my side.

  32. Shelly Burns

    OK, I’ll play! I have 8 pets: 6 horses (4 female, 2 male; 4 paints, 1 quarter, 1 arabian), and 2 dogs (1 male border collie, 1 female chihuahua).

    I will post on my blog as well!

  33. Becca

    After a review like that how can anyone not want to read this book? Years ago I would have had a whole list of pets but now I have just one cat. His name is Tequila but somehow he got nicknamed Quito. He’s adorable but incredibly dumb. Of course I love him anyway.

  34. Shauna

    Ooh, I’d love to read this book. That’s a pretty powerful rating.

    There are five animals living here full time (one cat, Sparkles; one dog, Sophie; a desert tortoise, Peewee; and two Colombian red-tail boa constrictors named Dane and Thora) and there is one cat named Johnson who lives on our front porch when it suits his needs, but his real family lives down the street. I call him our spare pet.

  35. Amanda

    Yippee!! I NEED this book!! I LOVED In the Woods and heard this one is even better. Ok…I have two adorable pets…two dogs, Lil’ Anna Bear and Charlie Dog. THANK YOU! And I posted about this giveaway on my blog. Thanks!

  36. Katherine

    Sounds good! Only one pet here–a dog.

  37. Christy

    Wow! After reading your review, I MUST read THE LIKENESS.

    I have 1 cat (last fall my husband went to the grocery store to get milk ~ he came home with a cat) and 1 dog.

    I blogged about it here:
    http://writeforareader.edublogs.org/2008/10/22/wednesday-wanderings/

  41. Florinda

    Wow, what a review! I feel like I HAVE to read this now (and probably IN THE WOODS as well, since bloggers have been praising that too).

    I have one dog, Gypsy. She’s a shepherd mix that has been with me for just over 10 years, and she neither looks nor acts her age – she is the Dorian Grey of dogs.

    I’ll link back to you in a post later this week – will let you know when it goes up!

  42. Gwendolyn B.

    I do not have any pets right now, but I live with 2 black cats as well as my niece and nephew. The latter two constantly morph into various creatures and I’m never to sure exactly what I’m dealing with!
    Thanks for the chance to win this book; I read IN THE WOODS and really liked it.

    geebee.reads AT gmail DOT com

  43. Carol M

    I have two black cats that are brother and sister. The are sweetest and most affection cats that I have ever had!

    I so want to read both of these books! I’ve heard so many good things about them! Thank you for the chance to win The Likeness!

    OK, that review gave me the creeps. I HAVE to read this book.

    My fur child is Cooper, the Golden Retriever.

    I’ve blogged about this contest in my right sidebar here:

    http://janelsjumble.blogspot.com/

    You can check the Coop out there too!

    I have 2 dogs. I blogged about the contest here:

    http://www.smbooks.blogspot.com

  46. Jill

    Oh my god, all of these other entries are a waste of time because I WILL WIN THIS BOOK. Maybe then I can read it out loud to my cat, Maurice. He used to belong to our neighbors but we kind of maybe sort of stole him. But eventually we actually wrote his former owners a letter and asked permission to permanently steal him. And they agreed! Want to see a picture of Maurice reading? Here you go: http://underthedresser.blogspot.com/2008/07/ummm.html

    For serious though, I loved In The Woods so much and to prove it, you can read my review here: http://underthedresser.blogspot.com/2008/09/in-woods.html.

    Now I must go so that I can post about this giveaway on my blog for more entrees.

  47. GirlwiththeBraids

    My family actually has over 40 beagles because we raise them. We only really have one that we keep inside (her name is Katie) so she is our pet.

    Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

    Don’t enter me, since I was a lucky recipient of the book from Penguin too! Now I can’t wait to read it!

  49. Laza

    I had a short and stubby Dalmatian when I was in high school and a bright blue fighting fish in college, but no pets now. Thanks for hosting the giveaway. I’ve linked to you here.

  50. Kimberly

    Ha haa!! Moaning, that’s awesome – my husband would say the same thing!

    I have Into the Woods on my TBR list, but I’d still love to enter the contest to win it…… THEREFORE

    I have one cat, her name is Banks and she is 4 1/2. More than you wanted to know right?

    Fun post by the way!

    Kimberly

  51. Corinne

    No pets. A frog when I was a kid 🙂

  52. Bookfool, aka Nancy

    Don’t enter me because I’m on a book diet, but I had to say I love the idea of asking something totally off-the-wall instead of all that “enter me” business. I have one cat, btw, and I want another one. Since our other kitty died, Miss Spooky has taken to yowling pitifully when she feels alone. So weird.

  53. Melody

    Ooh, I LOVE this book! I’m glad we share the same sentiments; it’s one of the best books I read this year!!

  54. Dawn

    Moaning over a book?!? What will the neighbors think 🙂

    Pets – 4 kids, 1 anole (science project left over from kid#2’s 4th grade project). Should I include dust bunnies in total head count? my husband?

    thanks for the opportunity.

  55. Kiki

    Pets–one ferocious rabbit (Thumper ), a Socirty Finch named Tweety, three fish and four crayfish!

    Weird huh?

    I loved In The Woods so I’m dying to read The Likeness and learn more about Cassie.

    1 cat
    1 beta fish
    does my husband count?

  62. bexadler

    I don’t have a pet 🙁

    If I did have a pet though, I’d have a West Highland White Terrier and name it Sophie, or Harold if it were a boy.

  63. libraryqueen

    I have two dogs. Well, maybe not. My husband is the official owner of DEVIL DOG! My daughter is the the rightful owner of Taffi. Only when my daughter grew up and left home the dog did not follow. Devil dog got his name from chewing up my new Dansco shoes which I left in the box on my tall bed when he was a puppy. He has also earned the name many times over as he chewed out of plastic dog cages, and METAL ones. Now, he has free reign of the house. Is last official earning his name came when I came home and found the man who is laying tile in the basement cleaning up a mess left by this beautiful but unruly cocker spaniel whose real name is Sebastian. Obviously, that sounds too much like a gentleman for this dog. Taffi is a fine dog who is just getting old. My daughter got her at sixteen and now my daughter is married with three children of her own. Taffi does not take to new places well so by default she is my dog.

  64. amelia

    I have one dog named Stella. I read In the Woods by the same author and loved it, I was really looking forward for this book to come out in paperback so I could pick up a copy, sounds amazing!

  65. Jessica

    Crazy! I want to read it now for sure. Right now we have two turtles- Bonnie and Clyde. We kind of have a cat, but he really belongs to the neighbors but he comes over to our yard to poop in my kids sandbox, which is gross, but made him a household name over here.

    Thanks! Totally posting a link to my page.

    Jessica

  66. mellymel

    i liked this one too. dare i say, better than in the woods?

    Did I miss where you specified the deadline for this contest?

  69. Dawn M.

    We have 1 dog, 12 guinea hens, 4 chickens, 1 rooster, 4 cows and a bunch of barn cats that won’t stay still long enough to count them so we have no idea how many there really are. :0)

    Thanks!

  74. Jessica

    I have no pets at the current time… growing up I always had more than one pet, but my husband is not a pet person. I am slowly wearing him down.

  75. tanabata

    I just ordered In the Woods and can’t wait for it to get here. I’d love a chance to win this one.

  78. Jennifer

    Oh I’m so looking forward to reading this book. I have one adorable little dog. Husband has a number of fish in his two tanks – hard to actually keep track of how many are in there.

  79. Lori L

    We currently only have two dogs, both mutts. The small one is a border terrier mix and the large one is a Great Pyrenees/Lab mix. We lost both of our cats last year. I’d love to win this book and will link to my blog.

  80. smoothpebble

    If you say it’s a 100/100 I’d love to read it myself! We have two d.a.m.n. cats, 2 rats (delightful creatures, one of them chewed through the cord to the computer keyboard, but I’m able to type because my husband spliced the cord back with his bare hands and first aid tape – it’s attractive home decor!), and an aquarium containing 4 fish. Planning to link to the blog as well!

  81. chartroose

    Yep, enter me. I have three cats and two dogs. Outside I have a pair of mourning doves that roost in my cherry tree, and a grey fox that sits in the yard and peers in my picture window every once in awhile. I also have a gopher that ocassionally digs holes in the backyard. Oh, and I have a ton of spiders in my house because I refuse to kill them or harm any living creature on purpose.

  82. Kaye

    My pets are all stuffed penguins, the favorite being a Macaroni penguin named Ajax complete with sunglasses as we live in Florida. I’m glad I don’t live out of the country, your mail delivery was absolutely hysterical. Thanks for the chuckles!
    I’ll post a link at my blog at

  83. Nicola

    I have exactly 0 pets, unless you count my 8yo and dh.

  84. Popin

    I’m a little bummed that Rob doesn’t show up in this book, but it still looks like an awesome read.

    I don’t have any pets. I did have a pigeon at one point, but that didn’t last long. I’d like to have a cat and a hamster one day.

    I’ve also posted a link of the contest up at my blog.

  85. Lisa

    I don’t think I should enter, what with the Hachette books, but I wanted to say GREAT review. I wasn’t sucked into wanting to read In the Woods, until I read this one.

    And I have 3 cats, 1 dog, and a fish.

    Right now we have three dogs and one cat.
    We have a hard time saying no to animals… I would love to read this book.

  88. Anna

    I hope I’m not too late. This sounds like a great book! We have three fish and that’s it. The one that belongs to me is an obese goldfish that would eat the rocks in the tank if they weren’t bigger than him (or her, since how the heck do you tell whether a fish is male or female??).

  89. Alexis

    I have not pets at all, unless you count my three children!

  90. Tracy

    We have three dogs: a golden retriever named Samson, a labrador mix named Blue (although lately we’ve called him Thumper because his tail is always wagging, hitting the wall in the hallway, and causing a loud, repeated THUMP), and a Jack Russell terrier mix named Precious (who was named be her former, and probably abusive, owner).

  91. Shooting Stars

    Wow, a ton of entries, but I’ll try. This sounds amazing.

    I have one pet…a dog named Luana. She’s very cute, but quite a handful!!!

    And I blogged about this too:

    I have two cats! Puddin’ and Tashi. They’re insane. Yesterday, one was chasing her tail in the kitchen trying to dislodge a leaf from outside while the other was rubbing lovingly against a full trash bag waiting to be taken to the basement.

    I’ve also posted about this on my blog! http://www.bookconfessions.com/?p=775

    Is too late to enter? ‘Cause I couldn’t see a deadline! And I know, I know this has been up forever, but I am insanely behind in blog reading!

    We have four pets: A cat, (who is getting old,) a noisy cockatiel (who we lost overnight awhile back but FOUND HIM!) and two hermit crabs (who I have nothing to do with!)

  104. Melissa

    I have one sweet kitty, Miss Opal. I haven’t this book or the one preceding it, but after reading your review it will go to the top of the list!
