    eh it was okay I am a huge fan of the TV series Bones which is loosely based off Kathy Reichs' series of which this is the first book However I realized exactly how LOOSELY BASED the series is after reading this book what I love about the show is the romantic tension and sparkling humor and wit these books are so much dryer and less fun Even the lead character is less appealing instead of being a gorgeous unattached doctor she's an older alcoholic doctor with a messy divorce and a teenage daughter the supporting characters are also much less appealing I guess it really is the lack of humor and relatability that makes this book such a disappointment after watching and loving the show Call me shallow but I prefer my fascinating forensic details served up with a little humor romance and appealing attractive characters Also the book seemed much violent although that may have been my imagination I just didn't enjoy this book I'm awfully glad it was written though or I might never have had Bones to watch Disclaimer several years and seasons later of Bones I have to say I'm no longer a fan of that either any I like a BALANCE of humor and forensic details romantic tension and reality Bones has become almost farsical humor and that makes me sad Because now I don't care for the book it's based on OR the show

    Separate the tv show and this book You will be very disappointed if you come in thinking it'll be like the tv show The characters setting and story are drastically different However I think this book is a lot better than the show and I liked the first seasons of Bones The lead character is believable She has faults like any normal human being and doesn't always make the smart choices She isn't a superhero on crack she actually gets pretty banged up The character seems human She's not out of touch with reality like how the TV show plays BrennanThe author's descriptions are detailed and medically oriented I enjoyed that as someone in a medical profession but you don't need to be to understand The French I feel the same I don't speak French but had no trouble following There really is very little actual French in the book and most characters speak to her in English as Brennan is an American born doctor There isn't a lot of romantic tension in this book It builds up over the series if you keep reading This is the first book which really sets the background for later booksFair warning The crimes ARE violent and emotionally disturbing at times This book isn't for people who want to read sunshine and roses or want a superhero who always saves the day It's definitely dark There are some sad moments that made me want to light the book on fire If you've never read a crime novel or aren't really into them I'd suggest something else not this series

    Honestly I didn't like this book much during the first several chapters It's obvious she was a novice writer and her over use of metaphors drove me crazy Also not being a French speaker all the French slightly excessive in my opinion annoyed me a bitI am a fan of the tv show 'Bones' which is based on this series of books so I was excited to start There are some major differences between the tv and the book versions of the main character which was a transition for me but I ended up like itI loved the end of the book I thought that was very well written Can't really explain why spoilers and such so you'll have to find out for yourself lolOverall I did enjoy the book and I read it very uicklyher use of foreshadowing was impressive and kept me wanting to turn the next pageI'd definitely recommend this book and I will be continuing the series

    This was my first exposure to Kathy Reichs and I must say I'm impressed As a fan of the TV show Bones I found this debut novel of Dr Brennan much enjoyable than the TV character The book had plenty of twists and turns while keeping a uick pace The only turn off for me was the French names and locationsI found it difficult to distinguish between the characters and locations but that is understandable due to the book taking place in Montreal I look forward to continuing the story of Dr Brennan and her graphic descriptions of murder scenes

    SOOOOO disappointed that this doesn't have the same exact characters like the show Or like the show in general Deja Dead is the first book of the Temperance Brennan series Now I'm slightly obsessed with the show Bones Which is where you meet the character Temperance Brennan so of course I had some expectations for the first book Sadly it's not set in DC and her people are not in it either Well yetTemperance is an okay kind of character just like she is in the first episode of the tv show Now her book character is completely different than her tv character She has a kid is divorced and a recovering alcoholic Luckily her job is the same it's just set in Canada Sort of close to DC but not really Then there's some sort of love interest at least in my eyes and that's with detective Andrew Ryan I could totally see him as the Booth but I have yet to determine if I like them or notThroughout the book she is trying to solve murders However that's not the only thing going on in her hectic life Nope she's like constantly being attacked by the bad guys It's kind of sad to see that happen but it does make the book a bit interesting I just kind of wished it was such a touch and go book It was definitely slow and boring in some parts and in other's the pace definitely picked upOverall I hope that the next book will a bit interesting since I plan to read her entire series

    Christ was it a struggle to get through this book When I read up on her books on it said Better than Patricia Cornwell so I thought DAMN this MUST be good seeing as I loved many of PC's earlier novels It sucked Not only did it suck but it sucked hardcore I was halfway through the book and still couldn't keep track of who half of the characters were I dreaded anytime a conversation ended because that meant she was about to start one of her endlessly descriptive blurbsDon't get me wrong being descriptive is good when trying to help you get a mental image of what is going on in a book but getting a detailed description of which street she takes when driving places or a three page step by step explaination of how she digitally compares teeth impressions is a bit much I shit you not she actually wrote something like first I click file and go to blah blah then I click on the photo and drag so the frame of dots shows up then I click blah blah and on and on and on Did I buy a crime novel or Photoshop for dummies?Ugh just because I'm a sucker for punishment and have no other unread books around I'll probably give her 2nd book a go If it's not substantially better than this one within the first 14 of the book I'm tossing them bothAs for the 'Better than Patricia Cornwell' crap What a joke this book wasn't even better than PC's WORST

    3 starsSo after watching the show and loving it and kinda missing it since it finished I decided to pick up the book Sadly the only thing the series and the book have in common is the name and profession of the female protagonist Nothing else Not even the plot And the plot of this one could have been adapted for the screen in my opinion For me the tv series was better But if I had read this when it came out in the 90s I would have enjoyed it

    My first introduction to Temperance Brennan was through Emily Deschanel’s great performance in the hit show BonesI’m currently working my way through the boxset and eventually planned on reading these books but as it’s been established numerous times in the series that these books are separate entities I decided I might as well start nowThis Temperance is so completely different She’s in her late forties a divorced recovering alcoholic with a teenage daughter Normally this would be an interesting introduction to a character to launch the series but I missed the social awkward TV versionI like that the story was set in Canada though with uebec being a French speaking province it added an interesting dimension to the side charactersThe story itself was nice intriguing crime story thriller as a serial killer is on the loose It did feel slightly slow in placesI’m sure that once I get used to this original version of Brennan I’m going to enjoy this series even

    i was killed by curiosity like a finely tuned catthat was not actually one of the many similes this book is drowning in but it may as well have been some real examplesIn my mind’s eye I could see her standing at a pay phone scanning her surroundings her eyes never resting broadcasting fear like Radio Free EuropeorShe was thin as soup in a homeless shelterorFor the third time in as many days I saw daybreak an event I embrace as eagerly as Joe Montana welcomes an all out blitzi don't even know what that meansnot to mention such general sparklers asI had enough pharmaceuticals in me to numb the Irai army the irai army is an odd choice for a book published in 1998 though i guess it takes place in 1994 still odd choice for a book that takes place in 1994 unless there was some irai army drug scandal i'm forgetting all about or was the irai army the lasting symbol of a big group of people who it would take a lot of drugs to numb back in 1994? it may be that i only read this book because i've been feeling really negative about almost everything i've read recently and my reviews have fallen on a spectrum from cranky to brutal which may or may not be fair might as well read something that i know i would hate right? the sad truth is that when i was bored last winter i watched some of the tv show bones which is based on these books smart science lady who is smart and says smart science y stuff and figures out stuff in a smart way? i am also smart as is evidenced by the previous sentence sign me upbut the same character in this book says things likeI watched him walk away admiring once again the way he filled his 501’sand constantly comments on how she can't uite figure something out there's something she's missing there's a piece of the puzzle that doesn't fit all the while i'm screaming at the book i can tell you what you're missing it's fucking obviousalso this book would be half the size if any of these near interchangeable characters actually told each other anything they're supposed to be running an investigation together or maybe a decent editor would have sufficedthe final reality is that i just didn't care about anyone in this book well that's not true i really liked the lead character's cat so maybe i finished the book to find out what happened to the cat view spoilernothing bad happens to the cat hide spoiler

    This was very difficult for me to get through Not because of the scary content While yes the content is uite dark and grossly disturbing that is not what set me back This is an extreme procedural novel Generally I do not mind however I have never come across the likes of a book where at least half of the novel is spent in explaining procedures In this case specific to bone analysis knifeblades and finger prints At some point I think the author must ask themselves does it feel like I'm writing a research paper so than a fictional novel? And if the answer is yesthen it's time to stop and editI believe this is roughly 400 pages At least 75 likely 90 pages should have been trimmed out The book is about a bone anthropologist who works at the coroners office and she discovers a serial killer who is murdering and dismembering women in a horrible grotesue manner as if there is a non horrible manner?? Of course I should be greatly disbursed by the details of the murders however I was so bored with the non stop monologues and overuse of similes that I didn't care what happened For every 1 page of dialogue between main characters there was 3 pages describing bone procedures or how to navigate downtown MontrealAfter finishing the Freida Kline series by Nicci French I have been looking to find a new series with a special main character to follow Based on the reviews and description I thought this might be a similar fit Sadly I was incorrect As this was not it for me and I will not be continuing with this series
