I enjoyed this book, the concept and the facts were very interesting, it seemed like the author just did a lot of complaining about her situation. She spent so much time talking about her lack of equipment/feuds with co-workers that the original stated purpose of hers, bringing awareness to genocides and helping skeletons speak, at times got lost in the background. I wish she would have focused more on the back stories of the genocides, like she did on the first section of the book. It seems like she didn't have as much interest in her numerous cases in Europe as she did in her African case. The book tailed off towards the end after a very promising beginning in Rwanda. The beginning of the book seemed like it was written with a purpose, the ending sounded like she was satisfying an editors needs by copying parts out of her journal.
