I can't finish this book. I'm turning it off half way through. Perhaps there was character development in past books...but I find none here. The names are all french - difficult to distinguish with my simple English-only speaking experience. I Wish I hadn't wasted a credit on this one.
Reading is a Virtue
It has been several years since i listened to a 'Bones' book. I am glad for the chance to finally get back to one. I love blending of the French & English dialogue. I typically enjoy the stories, and this one was no exception. Because there are so many books in Reichs's series she is a good choice for any reader who wants to live in the same book world fora while with characters who are worth following.
To technical, lacking in all aspects of the book. Don't waist your credit.
She did not flow
Despite the fact they've completely ruined Temperance B for television (completely my own independent opinion) and I'm never disappointed by an installment in the series. Highly recommend this author this series every time! Well worth the credit.
I love these stories... While I don't understand all of the technical jargon it's presented in such a way that you understand more than you think:). Love the stories and how they are spun!
the amount of medical examiner lingo mixed with random facts of cities, quarries, etc was just too much. this book felt educational instead of entertaining. it was a struggle to complete
Linda Emond IS Temperance Brennan for me. She brings the stories to life in a fantastic way, her voice hinting at the years of experience the character has. Kathy Reichs provides an excellent storyline that is imperative for anyone who buys into "the expert said so" mentality. Wearing a white coat does not make an expert. I appreciate the distinctions made in this book.
This was first "Bones" book. I'm a big Bones fan and thought I'd try my hand at a Kathy Reichs novel. I really enjoyed this one. At one point in the story, she and Ryan was in the Chicago area and I know that area well, so it was easy to picture them in the locations mentioned. When I realized there were Book 2, Book 8, Book 11 I thought I was a dope for reading them out of sequence, but soon realized it wasn't going to matter much. I enjoy the depth of details and descriptions.
I can't answer this question. I'm eclectic in music, books, movies. I don't like to make comparisons like this.
At first Linda Emond's narrative was hard to listen to and I had to start over a couple of times, but once I turned down my headphones a little and made some other tonal adjustments I didn't have any problems and really enjoyed her narrative.
No. I'm listening to these books at work, over production weeks when I'm tied to my desk processing photos. That's why these books are so great to have so I have some culture to listen to while my eyes are witness to movie photos (some from movies I would never go to).
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The storyline mixed up past and present to keep the suspense high, and the characters were believable. I enjoy Temperance Brennan's stories, and I didn't feel as if the scientific details were difficult to understand. Kathy Reichs continues to be one of my favourite authors and Linda Emond does a great job with the narration.
