My lastest audio book in the car was Break No Bones by Kathy Reichs. The main character was the inspiration for the Fox tv show Bones. I love the show, so I was prepared to love the books.

I hate the book. The only thing it has in common with the show is the character name and field of occupation.

The book has a lot of extraneous, rambling information that contributes nothing to the story. It starts out very slow, and doesn’t get into the story very quickly. I listened to several chapters while trying to decide if I was going to bother listening to the rest.

I did listen to the whole story. It did have a bit of a twist at the end, but most of it was predictable and boring. It could have been cut in half, and the story would probably have improved.

If you are a fan of the show, I would suggest you avoid the books completely. They are very disappointing and have nothing in common with the show.
