    Story
    (629)

    A woman has vanished while digging a dinosaur bone bed in the remote wilderness of Canada. Somehow, the only evidence has made its way to the inbox of Chief Medical Examiner Kay Scarpetta, over 2,000 miles away, in Boston. She has no idea why. But as events unfold with alarming speed, Scarpetta begins to suspect that the paleontologist's disappearance is connected to a series of crimes - much closer to home: a gruesome murder, inexplicable tortures, and trace evidence from the last living creatures of the dinosaur age.

    G. House Sr. says: "A tedious disappointment - Don't Bother!"
    "Such Frustrating Narration!!!!"

    What did you like best about The Bone Bed? What did you like least?

    I was so excited for a new Scarpetta - but pretty disappointed with the ho-hum story line and the overall tired feeling to the book. It seemed as though Ms. Cornwell was trying to meet a deadline...nothing new, nothing exciting but still nice to hear from the recurring characters.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    predictable


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Kate Reading?

    anyone else


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    yes


    Any additional comments?

    I hate to be cruel but Kate Reading has no business narrating. Her character voices vacillate between downright boring and just plain silly...just awful. She also mispronounces several words in this one - so annoying and distracting to the story.
