    1. Only read "Deja Death"but couldn't find it solo in this list. It was good. If you picked this book up because you like the TV show "Bones," be warned that the main character share a name and profession and that's it. The Tempes' personalities and life situations are different and none of the shows characters are in the book.I think this was a better read than some of the Evanovich and Cornwell that I've picked up lately, however the heroines are very similar. There seems to be a theme of middle- [...]


    2. I did not finish this book, If you like gruesome, this book is for you. I personally don’t enjoy books like this. After awhile I found myself skipping over some of the long descriptive passages, and even skipping past some of the technical material. Reader beware there are very disturbing descriptions of victims and what had been done to them. Prostitution is a major theme, and the book is heavily laced with profanity, and drug use. For Adults only. I wouldn’t recommend anyone to read it.I g [...]


    3. I have read later books in Reichs' series and thought I should try the initial book. Usually first novels contain a number of flaws that a writer will correct as they develop. This first novel does not seem to contain any serious flaws. It's plot is tight and well developed. Characters are believable. A great introduction to fantastic series.


    4. Two and I half stars, maybe. Mostly, it was just okay, though there were things I liked. Not really sure what the big deal is, here, folks. Yeah, it’s a pretty well-written and well-plotted mystery. And, if you like your murders grisly, I think she outdoes both Gerritsen and Cornwell. Tempe is an interesting character: intelligent, headstrong, recovering alcoholic. Separated from her husband, she’s the mother of a teenage daughter, which, of course, ties in neatly, well, a little too neatly, [...]


    5. The TV series Bones is based on this novel and its sequels. And the TV character of Temperance Brennan, a best sellingwriter of mysteries and a forensic anthropoligist, is based upon the author's own life. I must force myself to get past the multiple mirrors of these relationships and just consider the book. Temperance (there is no Bones nickname in the book) is a woman with baggage -- an daughter in college, an ex husband, a cat She's been working in Montreal for a couple years in the police fo [...]


    6. The first book was great, in spite of a few iffy coincidences. The writing is good, the science is fascinating, and the story rolls nicely - though the level of detail tends to slow it down a bit. We don't need to know what Tempe eats at every meal, the exact route that she takes to every new location, and exactly what building/view can be seen in any given direction.The second book was pretty good, though I thought the author was doing some back-peddling where the romantic interest was concerne [...]


    7. After I read the first 60 pages of this novel, I realized what made this book so obnoxious: the sentence structure. Reichs writes simple sentences over and over with no variation. Between the focus on minute, unneeded details and the basic sentence structure (noun, verb, predicate), I found the book difficult to get through. But I did get through it. The plot was interesting and most of the characters were memorable. I liked the focus on being a woman in a nontraditional role and the parallels b [...]


    8. No es una mala novela, desde luego: razonable sentido del ritmo, algo de intriga, pasajes más o menos de acción En definitiva, una novela negra decente.El problema es que entré en ella después de ver la serie 'Bones', seducido por las tramas y el personaje. Pues bien: de todo eso, ni rastro.Temperance Brennan no se parece ni por asomo, casi ni en su trabajo. La actitud y las características de la ficción televisiva no aparecen ni veladas en la novela, por no hablar del ambiente, los person [...]


    9. This was the first "Bones" written by Kathy Reichs.I think I like best of all the series so far.This is definitely not the tv series.I like both the tv series and the books for different reasons.In the books Tempe is older and more settled and her own woman. There is a love interest, but not the same as the shows.The science in the books is interesting and understandable for a lay person. I have worked my way through all but the last couple of books. And hope to finish them out this next year.Sh [...]


    10. I hated this book!!!!! and I have never ever said that about any of the books I read. I wanted to stop after the first 20 pages but read it cause I bought the book.The plot is all messed up there is no sequence I dont know what happened to the intial analysis of the nun's excavation there is a cult and then there is the date rape drug and there are murders in all places the anthropologist sets her foot in. I loathed reading this book and would never ever read another book.Verdict: Never read nev [...]


    11. Composed by Kathy Reichs and written before the television show Bones, this book is her amazing first novel featuring Temperance Brennan. Reichs describes brilliantly her work as a forensic anthropologist and the meticulous attention to bone anatomy is amazing. My favorite of all her novels to this day.


    12. Bought this hoping to get into all of them because I really enjoy the television show Bones (based on these books). However, I found myself constantly comparing the book to the show and frankly liking the television show a lot more. The differences in characters for television was definitely for the better. Harder to read than I had hoped, probably will not read any more in the series.


    13. This is the author the show "Bones" is based on, but I must say I like the show better. This character is okay, but a little too much science--more even than Scarpetta. It's set in Canada and there's too much French, but decent story. There are more in the series that I will probably read.


    14. The main character in both of these books is a female forensic anthropologist working for the Province of Quebec. The stories are OK, but by no means exceptional. Very reminiscent of Patricia Cornwell, but generally inferior to the best of the latter author.


    15. Not my fav. Glad that I did not read this one first I love the rest of her books that I have read but this one had a little to much describing little things like rooms that don't really have anything to do with the story.


    16. My first encounter with Kathy Reichs. For those who don't know her novels inspired the tv series Bones. A thriller which is read with speed, curiosity and of course withrills. In its genre, a book made by the book. Also, nostalgia for the times when images where .tifs in your PC. :D


    17. I love Temperance. I find her to be a very likeable and relatable character. Also, there is still quite a lot of unnecessary detail in the prose, but somehow I find it endearing that she always tells me what she's making for dinner or lunch. Makes her very human.



    18. This was a fantastic book. Dont think of Bones when you do. You will enjoy it just for the action and the thrill of the reading.She is good!


    19. Amazing, I would highly recommend it to anyone who loves the TV series Bones, great detail and I love her writing styple


    20. Really . Tempe gets into the world of cults and finds a lot of bad people and some good people in bad situations. Characters good. Descriptions good.



    21. Deja Dead was another great book by Kathy Reichs. Once again Temperance Brennan gets herself embroiled in the case before her. Reichs keeps you guessing right up until the last few chapters.





    22. Not a bad mystery. I was surprised to see how different the story is from the TV show Bones. For some reason I thought the show was a lot like the books, but they are really different.
