“'I don't like mondays...'”

published 22/07/2004

ProEnjoyable read that taxes the brain cells

ConsMay be a bit too much jargon

Monday mourning is the seventh novel featuring Temperance Brennan, a Forensic Anthropologist who works for the Laboratoire de Sciences Judiciares et de Medecine Legale for the province of Quebec, Canada. If you haven’t read any of the previous novels featuring the character, please do not dismiss...

I've read and reviewed my fair share of Reichs' novels now to consider myself a fan. Monday Mourning keeps to her unique style and didn't leave me disappointed in terms of it being a gripping read. The front cover tells us this is 'The New Tempe Brennan Bestseller', so this should hold appeal for...

ProA fanstatic read

ConsNone

Kathy Reichs has been described as "another Patricia Cornwall." This is unfair on Kathy Reichs because, unlike Patricia Cornwall, Kathy Reichs is a real forensic scientist.

ProGripping

Consthough not as gripping as her other books

Prodraws the reader into intricate detail

ConsHard to remeber all the differing french terms

If you like forensic anthropology you will love Kathy Reichs, purely because her knowledge comes from past experience, of actually being an anthropologist. This book like all the previous has it's own story so you can pick this up and not feel left out if you have not read any of the others...
