      I absolutely loved the television series Bones and I watch it (yes, even re-runs) every time I could. I was happy when I learned that this was based on a best-selling novel by Kathy Reichs.

      I searched the bookstores diligently, even going over to secondhand bookstores to look for


      the older books.

      I finally found the very first book in the series entitled Deja Dead.

      I was intrigued with the author, a forensic anthropologist who worked for the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for the State of North Carolina and the province of Quebec, Canada.

      I was impressed with her credentials, and I excitedly started reading Deja Dead.

      It was fascinating read, but for a fiction novel, it did not come to the level of Harry Potter.

      I felt as if Reichs was talking to her students, instead of ordinary readers.

      I like the subject matter and that is

      the only reason I plowed on and read the entire book.

      The chapters were too long (I have been spoiled by James Patterson) and the words used are too difficult.

      I had to refer to the dictionary most of the time.

      I like the plot, but I was bored reading this book.
