Don't look for the Temperance Brennan character as portrayed in the television series, 'Bones'. Reichs' original version is not the slick, confident and cerebral character who works with the F.B.I., but a much more vulnerable and uncertain person. Enjoy this recording in it's own right, as I have, and root for Tempe as she works through her doubts, fears and limitations to solve a series of gruesome murders.
For so many years I have had people warn me away from Ulysses, citing its obscurity and density. Phooey! It is lyrical and complex. It may well be that one would get more out of it given a thorough grounding in classical literature, but not quite getting all the allusions and references doesn't diminish the power of Joyce's playful linguistics. The well is deep, so drink deeply.
Quick Paced, Engaging
Detective's first day on the "job".
Clear difference in various character portrayals.
My first Pronzini 'read'; look forward to others.
