Yes, I alway recommed this author.
All of the information about NASCAR
The ME survives another day
Give me water to swim and surf in. That with a glass of white wine and the sun. That's heaven.
First such book I have ever listened to, but enjoyed the entire narration and the narrator!
Aside from Temperance, the characters weren't as interesting. I knew who the perpetrator was after a few pages. The only mystery was why certain people were murdered and how it was done. It was still an interesting story, but didn't have a lot of energy.
Nascar will never be the same for me! I am not a fan of car racing, but this story by Kathy Reichs was enlightening on the whole world of racing cars. It reminded me of closely knit societies, sporting hierarchal politics and debuts! I like the Temperance Brennan in the book series much more than in the TV version. She is more like a real person and easier to connect with as in this book.
I am usually a big fan of Ms. Brennan but honestly NASCAR was not a topic that appealed to me and there was just enough of it in there to be a drag [pun intended].
Also very little Ryan in this book...barely a mention! I missed him even if Tempe didnt.
It all took place in Charlotte when usually Tempe has some Montreal story woven into the plot.
I will probably buy the next Reichs title but maybe the TV show is getting all the good stories.
I wonder if there comes a time when a writer is so completely out of ideas for a reoccuring character? I do feel sorry for Kathy Reichs. I have no doubt that she has supplied us with enthralling tales over the years but it seems as if Tempie is changing somehow. There was hardly any of the "technical talk" I've read in the last two books but the writer felt the need to educate us on the vaious enroads "to" and "from" the NASCAR circut. I was hesitant to purchase because of the plot setting but rather thought that the "mystery" should outshine any ambiance from the NASCAR venue; I was wrong. There were many lengths of conversation lent to explaining a subject within the NASCAR arena so that the reader would be better equipped to understand proceeding information. It was as if you knew a lesson was about to begin when you sensed a change in the plot....every plot.
There were countless characters in the story and I found myself relistening to keep up. Had it not been for the brilliance of the narrator to "find" so many voices I may have lost altogether.
I keep coming back to Tempie because I hope for more of the old but, so far, it's not quite happened in the last couple of books. Sorry.
I love true crime. YA books and I didn'tuse too but seriese. Vampire, harry potter, especailly dystopian novels.
I don't usually figure out the ending until the end. I was surprised this one was so simple.
