Started off interesting enough, but tiresome towards the end. As it is a crime novel, everything mentioned in it is important to the plot, and somewhere around the middle of the book the reader has already figured out the basic lines of what was happening and has to listen (well, I had to listen) to the narrator wonder and wonder and wonder... For Pete's sake, it's right there in front of you... Still, entertaining for the long time riding the bus to and from work......Continua
This was both a good mystery and a good insight into Tempe's childhood. I liked how she persisted in finding her lost friend and solving the mysteries of the cold cases. I look forward to reading the next book, Devil Bones.
Maybe not a book to read on Christmas day.....
As usual a very well written story, well paced, interesting and fun. At times all the medical explanations can get a little boring to me
The book series is completely different than the TV show for sure. It's not a bad thing, it just threw me off for a while. I did enjoy reading it, and the ending completely surprised me. Always a good thing.
Ladies and Gentlemen, meet the female Clive Cussler!
The major character was born in the same place as the author, grew up in the same place as the author, speaks the same languages as the author (and she boasts about it a lot), works in the same place as the author and is of the same gender as the author! Plus, she seems to have every ability in the world for absolutely no reason, and a tragic past too. Very unlikely.
Anyway, the book is really well-written, full of details. It's a shame that the plot ruins everything.
A good reading for everyone who is looking for a Mary Sue...and a book written in English full of unrequired (and random; clearly the author only wanted to let us know she speaks two languages, which is extremely annoying) French words. Enjoy! (even though , in my opinion, you'd enjoy it more if you didn't read it at all)
