Read in April, 2009

If you like Kathy Reichs, and you like the Fox Television show "Bones," it's a safe bet that Ms. Reichs's "Bare Bones" will be right up your alley.

As usual, the writing is a little heavy with comparisons (i.e. "wrinkled brown face, fuzzy gray, hair voice like ripping duct tape"... there are over 200 uses of "like") but nothing more than you would expect.

The plot is good, though a little hastily wrapped up. In Temperence Brennan novels, you can usually expect to find everything solved in approximately 20 pages at the tail end of the book. However, this one felt particularly rushed, certainly not as well as neatly tied up as one usually expects. In fact, I'm still trying to figure out exactly how everything managed to link together. Which is more than a little odd.

None the less, worth a read if you're a fan of the genre, but I wouldn't recommend picking this as your introductory Reichs read.
