Bones The gripping Temperance Brennan novel from world class forensic anthropologist Kathy Reichs the international no bestselling crime thriller writer and the inspiration behind the hit TV series Bones
I am a huge fan of the TV show Bones I have never read a book by Kathy Reichs I don t think I ll read This book has a very grumpy Temperance Brennan There s something quite dislikable about her throughout She s angry, she complains, she hardly has anything nice to say There were various mysteries but the real time one was easy to figure out but anyone, except Temperance and Ryan The murder mysteries were convoluted and, frankly, boring The writing was poor Winds skulked down streets, for exampl [...]
Kathy Reichs used to be my favorite author, and I don t know if she s gotten into a rut, or if I m just no longer enad with her style, but either way, this book didn t do it for me It was too self aware, too precious, too bogged down in details I used to enjoy the technical medical details that Reichs includes, but this time I found myself skimming entire paragraphs I was also annoyed w the excessively complicated plot line as in past books, many seemingly unrelated deaths turn out to have a con [...]
I am the type of reader who hooks into a series that is already established and reads each book in order, one after the other I started the Temperance Brennan novels a few months back, and have read each book in succession Maybe I have read too many in too short a period of time, but the formula is wearing thin, and Tempe is becoming annoyingly arrogant This book especially focuses on board certification, and while I m sure Ms Reichs can attest to its importance, I found the repeated message to [...]
With her 12th Bones book, Kathy Reichs decided to mix it up a little bit Instead of saving Tempe s inevitable abduction for the very end, she opens the book with it and then takes us back to the beginning of the case so we could see how Tempe ended up in peril.Nice try, Reichs, but the real way to mix it up would be to stop having your heroine get kidnapped at all Its ridiculousness is right up there with how many times Chloe and Lois have each been knocked out on Smallville I d make a drinking [...]
At 20 pages in, I was already annoyed by the author s habit of taking paragraphs of description, slapping quotation marks around it, and calling it dialogue And yet, I carried on to the bitter end Which I saw coming a mile away.This isn t one of Tempe s greatest hits The crimes are unremarkable for the genre, anyway and the twists are less than twisty Plus the Brennan Ryan romance is back in its tedious will they again or won t they again mode.My biggest beef is that Reichs is clearly using the [...]
Blech I think Reichs may be losing it I have been a past fan of hers for many years and have read everything she wrote but I think she may be resting on her laurels Temperence Brennan has turned into a misanthropic curmudgeon who is pretty unlikeable This story was disjointed with subplots plopped in willy nilly Unrealistically Tempe stays with Pete s extended family her ex in laws with whom she has a wonderful relationship How realistic is that Could be, but unlikely She goes on and on about th [...]
Was up all night read because of the rain storm we had so I was able to finish it.just like the rest of the ones of this series its a must read.if you haven t read the series yet then you need to.
I am the biggest fan of the television show Bones I m not even kidding when I say that It s practically a fact Ever since I was twelve I have devoured the show I have every season on DVD and have literally watched every single episode a minimum of ten times I can quote it off by heart I can look at a single still and probably tell you the season and episode it was taken from I love it beyond anything I have ever loved before well, accept maybe Harry Potter How have I not read the books yet then [...]
206 Bones is book 12 of 18 in the long running series by Kathy Reichs starring forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan 206 Bones continues to follow the procedurals formula and, I don t think it s too much of a spoiler to say that like many of the other books in the series, our protagonist ends up abducted, escaped rescued, and in the hospital before the end of the story But she, with the assist from side kick cop and ex lover Andrew Ryan do eventually put the clues together and catch the mur [...]
I love me some David Boreanaz Way before there was Team Edward, there was Angel, the tortured vampire with a soul from Buffy the Vampire Slayer What does David Boreanaz have to do with a Kathy Reichs novel, you ask Nothing except that he now plays a characters on Bones, a television show VERY loosely based on Kathy Reichs character Temperance Brennan I give you this background on DB as an explanation for my love of said show, despite the fact that the only things that the show and Kathy Reich s [...]
Reason for Reading I read every new Kathy Reichs book Comments Tempe wakes up to realize that she is tied up and trapped within a small brick structure within complete darkness Chapters alternate between her present situation and some relative distant past and a case she s been working where the skeletal remains of an elderly woman are recovered and linked to 2 other violent deaths of elderly women and 1 current missing persons case that fits the same descriptors Tempe is also experiencing diffi [...]
My first book for 2017 How exciting The book itself not so much This one felt as if Reichs was struggling to meet her deadline and her word count Way too much padding She pulls a James Patterson and throws in several cases for the price of one I do not like this If I did, I d watch a TV show My biggest peeve description I swear, did we really need that three page description on the history of her ex husband s family Three pages ABOUT HER EX HUSBAND S FAMILY Good grief After that, it s describing [...]
Why read Love the seriesWhat impressed me Three dead women, seemingly unconnected, plus Tempe trapped means a whole lot of mystery going on The details were easy to follow, the solutions always a surprise And while I ve always been a fan of Ryan, all of his scenes with Tempe s former in laws were hilarious and made me love him even .What disappointed me The back and forth between the past investigations and Tempe being trapped annoyed me I think it was supposed to heighten the tension, but it se [...]
Probably my favorite Tempe Brennan book thus farIt just flowed incredibly smooth and I thought the storyline was the best out of all of them She is still just a really, really comfortable read for me.
In 206 Bones by Kathy Reichs, Temperance Brennan, is handcuffed and buried in some place underground She does not remember how she got there, she is injured, and terrified, but attempts to save herself Then Ms Reichs shows us the series of events that led up to the abduction This is a first for me author and so I was not 100% sure of what to expect, because I like the TV series Bones, which I frankly love, but I know that some things don t translate well from book to screen I think what surprise [...]
206 Bones is the latest book in the Tempe Brennan mystery series by Kathy Reichs In the novel, Tempe revisits her old stomping grounds of Chicago, with Canadian detective Andrew Ryan in tow Ostensibly in town to deliver a local body found in Montreal and to discuss the case with the Chicago coroner s office, the two also end up making a holiday visit to Tempe s ex husband s family Tempe is actually invited, as she is every year, but Ryan somehow makes his way into the fold and into the family s [...]
The first time I read a Kathy Reichs novel, I was about sixteen, and really into my forensic pathologist does crime fighting lit I read it in about two days, decided it was brilliant, swore off Patricia Cornwell and all other substitutes ever again and promptly forgot about it Every so often now, I see one, and think yeah, that was great, I must do that again.So anyway, I ve done it again This time around, I was a bit worried that, now I m a bit older, they d have lost their brilliance, but you [...]
I ve been reading Kathy R since the very first Temperence Brennan book and either her plots and writing have gotten shittier over the years or I ve gotten critical Probably a combination of both This is absolutely the last Kathy Reichs book I will ever read She s just horrible I m immediately irritated because Tempe is being held in an underground tomb and she is described as being hogtied Now, I know what that means, but I googled it just in case because Tempe is then described as moving aroun [...]
And yet another Tempe Brennan novel Wait, what was this one about again Oh, right Tempe is framed for not having done her job properly Of course, the set up involves a bit than just professional jealousy murder, mayhem, graves and bones the usual.Oh, Mrs Reichs you know I ve read all your Tempe novels, and I ll continue to do so But, remember the times when you actually created interesting new characters, and when the relationship between Tempe and Ryan wasn t the only thing that made the book [...]
I love Kathy Reichs, but despite the dramatic beginning forensic anthropologist Tempe Brennan finds herself trapped, bound hand and foot, in what seems to be a crypt , this book was lacking in warmth and emotion.Reichs hits all the points setting up a potentially career ending threat of mishandling an autopsy and there are enemies galore Ryan and her new beau make appearances, as does daughter Katy and ex Peter and his extended Latvian clan But while she might get a 6 from the judges for technic [...]
It s been a while since I ve read one of Dr Reich s Tempe Brennan thrillers, and while her books are better by far than the TV version Bones , and Patricia Cornwell s increasingly grim Scarpetta novels, I quickly remembered why I stopped reading them I had identified the key villain one third of the way in 3 pages after their introduction , was tired of the romantic backstory way before that, and finished up frustrated with her moralising about board certified forensics in the final chapter s fi [...]
I think that I may be finished with this series In this 12th Temperance Brennan book, Reichs offers up much the same in terms of plot old bones are found, Tempe draws conclusions from bones, gets herself into trouble, ends up being kidnapped, etc etc etc I listened to this as an audio book which allowed me to interact in a vocal way While, again, I was fascinated by Reichs presentation of forensic anthropology, Tempe seemed not as quick as usual in drawing conclusions about the people and events [...]
206 Bones is another book in Kathy Reichs mystery series set in the realm of forensic anthropology My feelings about this one are split on the one hand, it was interesting and gripping, and well written the characters have depth and complexity, as usual for her On the other hand, I found part of the solution too simple to see I was already quite convinced to have a guilty party recognized about halfway through, which is presumably not intended which made me rate it down from 4 to 3 stars.Persona [...]
I used to love reading these novels of Reichs but not so much any I find myself skipping whole paragraphs that are put in to fill up space Example 2 1 2 pages about a Monastery that has nothing to do with the story She seems to write now with a I am so smart so I must tell you everything I know in a talk down to you attitude And there seems to me to have detail then the average person needs wants Finally done with this book The problem with Reich s books are they are all so much alike Why is i [...]
It s been awhile since I read Reich s last book so maybe I don t remember the tone of the previous books being as utterly snippy and sarcastic as this one was.Tempe was positively bitchy the entire book and not in a funny way The one liner s and constant sarcasm came across like nails on a chalkboard All the wishy washy crap between her and Ryan that had been so well cleared up in the last book was back again I just thought, It s been 12 books Can you make up your mind The plot itself was boring [...]
ok usually like her books but this one seemed a lot of preaching about the need to credential forensic pathologists Some of the description was like reading a textbook yawn In 206 Bones by Kathy Reichs, Temperance Brennan, is handcuffed and buried in some place underground She does not remember how she got there, she is injured, and terrified, but attempts to save herself Then Ms Reichs shows us the series of events that led up to the abduction.
It was hard to retain all the character names thrown in at the onset, but it all falls into place about midway through the book Reichs description of bones for forensic purposes makes an otherwise technical read easy to understand Fast paced.
I believe I ve reached the point in the series where someone is very busy with their successful tv show and doesn t really have time to write a book, but decides to publish one anyway.
