Conhecimento Comum



I've got to hand it to Kathy Reichs, she really knows her stuff. While reading this book, I was struck by the intricate blend of forensic anthropology and religious history.

This instalment of the Temperance Brennan series is not just a murder mystery; it's a journey into how religious beliefs can stir up our everyday lives. It's like a Sunday school lesson with a side of CSI - and I'm here for all of it.

Reichs' attention to detail is impeccable. She doesn't just tell the reader about the bones... she made me feel like I was right there in the lab with Tempe, microscope in hand. And it's not just the forensics. She paints a vivid picture of every setting, every character. I felt like I could walk around in Tempe's world, bump into her colleagues, and know exactly who they were.

The plot twists in this book were a breath of fresh air. Reichs weaves in historical facts and mysteries that had me turning pages faster than I'd like to admit. It was a fantastic departure from the usual whodunit, and I really enjoyed the ride.

I love this series. Reichs' books are always fast-paced and well-written, with an array of intriguing characters and a genuine mystery at their core. MONDAY MOURNING was no exception, although I had trouble with the subject matter about 3/4 of the way through. Not because the topic wasn't well handled but because it was a little too brutal for me. My tolerance for vicious abuse of girls and women is low these days. Still, MONDAY MOURNING delivered thrills, chills, and the complex forensic anthropology I'd come to expect from Kathy Reichs. I can't wait to see what Tempe does next!… (mais)

I've been in a reading slump for months. As usual, when I feel restless and unsatisfied with my reading material, I turn to a series I love. Stepping back into Tempe's world of forensic anthropology was just what I needed. I loved getting to see Tempe and Ryan deepen their relationship. Sure, the mystery itself was a little convoluted and perhaps not as engaging as I would have liked, but overall I found myself quickly turning pages and happily anticipating my next reading session. However, I cringed a little at Reich's handling of a trans character (right down to choosing to use the wrong pronoun at the end). Still, given that the book was written almost 20 years ago, I'm willing to overlook it -- and hope she'd do better today.… (mais)

I love this series, and I typically enjoy following Tempe on her adventures, but I slogged a bit through this one. I enjoyed the Guatemalan setting and learning more about the human rights issues, but I got super annoyed with Tempe herself. She seemed so prickly in this book for no good reason. She was harsh with Ryan at every opportunity. The love triangle seemed contrived and, frankly, expected. It's as though every long-running series with a female protagonist at some point introduces the dreaded love triangle. It's Stephanie Plum all over again. If I wanted Stephanie, I'd read Janet Evanovich. I come to Kathy Reichs for more in-depth characterization, and I feel like this installment veered away from that quite a bit. Hopefully, the next one will bring us back on track.… (mais)
