I am generally a fan of this series, but in this book Brennan was portrayed as having some type of legal authority, the plot was slow, the characters unbelievable. Brennan was arrogant and lacked just plain common sense. This will most likely be my last read of the series.
Dr. Brennan's role as psuedo lone ranger detective.
Nothing gets me to work and back like a good military spy novel.
The book was well performed. Good pace of the reading
It was long and technical. Over descriptive in places.
I love the Bones series, but I think it may be time to retire. This book was okay, but not as engaging as most of the others.
The very beginning of the book,sent goose bumps up my spine!
The finding of the baby in the attic, really gave me chills especially the way it was spoken.
This is the first book I've listened to of Kathy Reichs, and I would recommend listening
to the Book "Bones Are Forever." Very good listen,with a lot of emotion.
I typically LOVE Kathy Reichs books from the Brennan series.
I would have like to feel more of the 'jointedness' I'm used to in these books. I didn't feel the sort of continuity I'm used to and, it seemed to me that the minutinae got in the way of the story.
I can't think of a specific narrator that I would choose.... but NOT Emond. The vocal characterisations werent consistent and seemed, at times, to be really flat.
I hope that this isn't a trend for the series!
Yes, love her books, just not thrilled with this one.
Always Brennen. She has it all and helps others too.
Nothing, she is a great narrator. Clear and easy to understand.
Of all the Reich's books about Brennen, This one has just too much detail. Some detail is good, but too much is boring. I find myself drifting off to think about other things. I want to be on the edge of my seat, as with the other books. The story line has merit, just too much on and on boring detail.
In my top 10 personal favorites
The forensic detail and jargon, right to the point stuff.
Great, kept me wanting to get back to the story.
Yes, not enough free time to do it, but the interest was there.
I suggest you give this one a look.
Thorough, interesting and educational!
Yes, Reichs always has Tempe into things that she shouldn't be doing!
I think it's interesting that Tempe's daughter is going to join the army, she skirted over that part, but I will be interested to see where that leads.
LOVE All books by Lee Child, and Vince Flynn and J.A.Jance
One of her best.
There were too many to pick out just one..
Temperance was only one I recognized---speech was clear and imparted emotions that one would expect in specific circumstances.
Diamonds in the Rough
I love Kathy's books for their attention to detail and the variety of her situations.
Someone that has never read any books
It was the same old tired story line....woman and guy are secretly in love but won't show it to the other one, woman is brilliant but does so many stupid things that it shows she really is stupid, woman gets into bad trouble and amazingly, along comes guy to rescue her...sigh
When she found the baby in the window seat.
I would tell her to rewrite the book
I don't think all the profanity is needed, this book was filled with it, unlike her earlier and much more interesting books.
I love Miss Reichs book normally and look forward to each new release, I watch Bones the TV series and adore it, but I am so dissapointed in this book. It was almost like she's tired of writing about 'Tempy'.
