Well it’s no secret I love Bones. I thought I’d try the books. Picked this one up as a treat. Found the next one in a charity shop for cheaps. It’s not bad. The titles leave a lot to be desired, but the content is good. I was unsure about the first person stance but it works out alright. The only trouble I have is reading books like this and getting scared that every noise is someone come to kill me like in the book. I have no trouble with spooky films, books are a whole other kettle of fish.
It was a compelling read, kept me involved. It’s not the same as the show, although I guess some of the later ones might be. This is fair enough I guess, since the show is just based on the character in the books, not the books themselves. Worth a read if you like crime fiction 🙂
Thus begins my book binge!
