Bones Are Forever: A Novel
Bones Are Forever: A Novel by Kathy Reichs
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Despite the length and verbosity of Kathy Reichs books, I always seem tear through them the quickest. I enjoy the conflicted character of Tempe, her rocky relationship with just everyone in her life, her temper, and her smarts.

In this book I learned about mineral rights, diamond mining, forensic orthodontia, fetal autopsy, and the seedy nightlight of Canadian sex workers. I’m not complaining. Ms. Riechs’ books are layered with converging stories, multiple players and plots that makes sense. Her characters face real life issues (choices, alcoholism, drug use, pain, shame, hurt, rejection) and you care about them, even if you don’t like them very much.

I especially like how this Tempe Brennan is nothing like her television counterpart. This is a Tempe you can relate to with a daughter, an ex-husband, a cat and a career.

Just this fox. I'm a writer of horror and dark fantasy. I totally don't brag about it. The latter statement is an utter lie.
