Bones Are Forever: A Temperance Brennan Novel, Book 15 | [Kathy Reichs]

Bones Are Forever: A Temperance Brennan Novel, Book 15

Temperance Brennan has been asked to examine the corpses of three dead babies in Montreal. It’s a difficult assignment, complicated further by the fact that her long-time flame Detective Ryan is investigating the infants’ mother, a former (and possibly current) prostitute. When the woman flees to Edmonton, the investigation is joined by Royal Canadian Mounted Police sergeant with whom Tempe had an ill-advised fling over a decade earlier. The dissonant team heads to remotest Yellowknife - mining country - to pursue an ever more sinister trail.

Publisher's Summary

Kathy Reichs, number-one New York Times best-selling author and producer of the Fox hit series Bones, is at her brilliant best in a riveting novel featuring forensic anthropologist Tempe Brennan - a story of infanticide, murder, and corruption set in the high-stakes, high-danger world of diamond mining.

Temperance Brennan has been asked to examine the corpses of three dead babies in Montreal. It’s a difficult assignment, complicated further by the fact that her long-time flame Detective Ryan is investigating the infants’ mother, a former (and possibly current) prostitute. When the woman flees to Edmonton, the investigation is joined by Royal Canadian Mounted Police sergeant with whom Tempe had an ill-advised fling over a decade earlier. The dissonant team heads to remotest Yellowknife - mining country - to pursue an ever more sinister trail.

With the Fox series Bones in its seventh season and her popularity at its broadest ever, Kathy Reichs reaches new heights in storytelling and suspense-building. Bones Are Forever shimmers with sexual tension, crackling dialogue, and the thrilling twists Reichs delivers so well.

    "Temperance Brennan lives up to my expectations"
    Where does Bones Are Forever rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I love Kathy Reichs so this book is right up there among my favorites. It is my first audiobook of her stories and I will be back for more.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Her plots are always intriguing and exciting. This one didn't grab me like some have but it was very good.


    What about Linda Emond’s performance did you like?

    Yes I liked her performance. This was my first book read by her. So far my favorite is Davina Porter but not everyone must be a master or mistress of complex dialogs. Ms. Emond was very good.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No. It held my interest and I will be listening to it again.

    "WOW-one of the best in a while"

    There isn't a Tempe book I don't like, but some are better than others. This is one of them. Went by way too fast. I especially like the stories that stay in Quebec but this one venturing out to Western Canada was great. Bringing in the little mentioned First Nation's People and the rape of the world by billion dollar companies.

    "Good book"

    I am a huge fan of Kathy Reichs. I've read all of the Brennan books and find that while some are better than others, she has done a nice job of not letting the characters get too stale even after 15 books. This story wasn't bad but it felt a little contrived, the ending a little too pat. I didn't like Emond in the beginning but she grew on me. I'm not sure that I will be hunting for more of her books yet but she makes a good Brennan.

    Story
    "Depends on what you enjoy"

    If you like history/geology/sociology, you will enjoy this. When the story sidetracked into this type stuff, I was bored and would lose the story line. I want to read/listen to the story, not the history of diamond mines or whatever. I know authors often do a lot of research and want to make use of it, but minimal setting for the story is preferable to me.

    The basic story line is interesting and kept me listening, but I'd find myself tuning out at times. What I enjoyed from the book could have reduced the book by half.

    I also don't think it's necessary to be quite so gruesome.

    I've read 3 or 4 of the books by the author. I probably won't buy anymore. Just not my style.

    "I couldn't put it down"
    Where does Bones Are Forever rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I've enjoyed all of the Brennan series by Kathy Reichs.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Brennan continues to be my favorite character, very real. After 28 years as a CSI I can relate to the language and situations.


    Which character – as performed by Linda Emond – was your favorite?

    I've only listened to Ms. Emond narrate the Brennan series of books. She made each character in the book real.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. Not possible.


    Any additional comments?

    Continue the fine work. I look forward to the next book in the series.

    "Not the best"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Sort of, Brennan always entertains but too much information


    Would you recommend Bones Are Forever to your friends? Why or why not?

    If they like Reichs then they should listen not read


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Linda Emond?

    Absolutely


    Did Bones Are Forever inspire you to do anything?

    Read more Temperance Brennan

    "Thoroughly enjoyed this read and it's narration."
    What did you love best about Bones Are Forever?

    It kept me guessing as to whodunit; who'd they do it to; who's the bones gonna be? Of course the why'd they do it was an unexpected delight.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Tempe clobberin' the guy with a shovel.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When they shot that poor kid who didn't even understand what was happening.


    Any additional comments?

    Hey Kathy, thank you for making my world more enjoyable. Also loved Linda Emond's narration; I can now read a few words in French and speak them with proper pronunciation, like Alberta and Yellowknife. Ha. Just kidding, Linda.
