Review: Speaking in Bones by Kathy Reichs

Speaking in Bones: A Novel (Temperance Brennan) - Kathy Reichs


I received a free copy of Speaking in Bones from the publisher in return for an honest review.


Speaking in Bones drew me in right from the start and had enough twists and turns to keep me turning the pages. The plot was interesting and I was never really sure where it was going, just when I thought I had things figured out the author threw in something else that had me trying to piece things together all over again.


I particularly liked how each chapter finished on a cliff hanger even though it made it impossible to put down, no more reading just one more chapter before bed. As with previous books, I still found myself feeling frustrated with Tempe's character, she places herself in dangerous situations where she really should know better and I struggle to match this to her intellect and profession.


I used to read every book in this series but I started to lose interest as the later books weren't to the standard of the earlier ones. This one however caught my attention and I'm glad that I grabbed a copy. While it's not as good as the earlier books, it's one that you will want to finish and definitely worth a read.
