“Flash and Bones” Review

Flash and Bones (Temperance Brennan, #14)Flash and Bones by Kathy Reichs
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I’ve been spoiled by the “Bones” series, the characters at The Jeffersonian, the witty dialogue, and the magic between Tempe and Seeley Booth.

This book was okay, but Reichs has an annoying habit (at least to me) of ending her chapters with a sentence or two that attempts to be a cliff hanger. I prefer more subtle attempts to keep me reading.

And Tempe seems to be stuck in her life, not really happy, way too focused on work, etc. In the television series “Bones,” Tempe’s relationship with Booth forces Tempe to look at her life in a new way, take chances. And she’s got good friendships with the people she works with; the book Tempe really has no friends.

I do not plan to read another book in this series, at least not right now. I’ll focus on watching the characters develop on the television series (as long as the quality stays good).

  2. Tilly, there were a few shows in the fall that made me wonder if the magic was starting to fail. We will see! Thanks for the comment.

  3. I was a fan of the books before the series came on. I found the series to be far less serious than the books and got burned out on the humor pretty fast. I do think the earlier books were better though.

  4. Kathy, thanks for your opinion! And I agree about the books–the earlier ones were better.
