Cross Bones - Kathy Reichs Well, Reichs seems to have become the master of incomplete, abbreviated sentences. The writing has become increasingly staccato, which again, I don't enjoy because it pulls me out of the story. And frankly, it gets really tiring to read.

As for the story, well my mother had to quit halfway through because she found it too confusing. I did read it all the way; while I did find it somewhat difficult to follow all the skeletons and remember the importance (and potential identity of each), I actually found this one less difficult to follow then the earlier books. Perhaps, it was because it was shorter, but I've always had a bit of trouble tracking with these books, so it was nice (a pleasure?) not to have to wait for the story to get back on track.
