'I don't like mondays...' Review with images

AdvantagesEnjoyable read that taxes the brain cells

DisadvantagesMay 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 this book solely for that reason. I started my fixation on Reich’s character on the sixth book in the series – Bare Bones, and waited in anticipation ..." Read review

The Pizza Bones Investigation

AdvantagesGripping read, intelligently written, easy to visualise, good depth of characters

DisadvantagesNone for me, but perhaps a little too much 'technical' detail for some

"...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 those familiar with Reichs' work and protagonist. Monday Mourning introduces us to a cold December day in Montreal when skeletal remains are found in the cellar of a pizza-by-the-slice parlour. Enter Temperance ..." Read review

Lundi porte le deuil. Monday mourning.

AdvantagesGood story line, good writing style, good characters

Disadvantagestoo much detail on forensic anthropology for the novice

"Temperance Brennan, lovingly known as Tempe, is a Forensic Anthropologist who splits her time between cold Montreal and warm Charlotte, North Carolina. In early December, she is called to Montreal to testify as an expert in a trial. When she is casually asked to a freezing pizza parlour basement to have a quick look at some human remains, she has little idea that this assignment will take over her life and mind for quite some time. As she discovers ..." Read review

Monday Mourning by Kathy Reichs. A review

AdvantagesA fanstatic read

DisadvantagesNone

"...secretary in a pathology laboratory. In Monday Mourning the skeletons of three young girls are found in the basement of an old building that is currently a pizza parlour. Yet a mysterious 'phone call from an old lady soon tells Tempe Brennan (the forensic anthropologist heroine of Kathy Reich's novels) that the building was not always a pizza parlour. Some years ago it was a very different type of a parlour. With a rather unsavoury reputation. Detective ..." Read review

A little dated (*)
odd and funny
The humour doesn't appeal to everyone. (*)
Good characters solid writing style that engages the reader and a few red herrings
Not enough Carter and Paranormal chapters unnecessary in my opinion (*)
A very good read
Don't last long enough (*)
An autobiography actually written by the subject himself
Pretty crude writing, an unhealthy amount of penis references! (*)
similar by Author Surname (First Letter) (R)
Another excellent thriller in this latest series by the author of Rebus
A slightly implausible plot? (*)
Another great story involving a hotel fire and an unidentified body.
May have to read the previous books to get a good feel for the characters. (*)
Can't think of any
The book is a total turkey! (*)
An engaging read, with a few good twists
None (*)
It will keep you hooked and you'll be racing to finish it
There are a lot of characters and it's split into many sections, so sometimes hard to keep track (*)
