OH yes a reading quote how cool am I! I know really cool….
“To read a writer is for me not merely to get an idea of what he says, but to go off with him and travel in his company.”
– Andre Gide
And time for a new book, this is for the Kathy Reichs fans (These are loosely based on the T.V. series “Bones”);
“In Quebec, winters can be slow for the forensic anthropologist. The temperature rarely rises above freezing. The rivers and lakes ice over, the ground turns rock hard, and snow buries everything. Bugs disappear, and many scavengers go underground. The result: Corpses do not putrefy in the great outdoors. Floaters are not pulled from the St. Lawrence… and some of last season’s dead are not found until the spring melt.”
Readers of Kathy Reichs’s cool and clever first forensic thriller Déjà Deadwill recognize the ironic voice of Tempe (short for Temperance) Brennan, the North Carolina-born scientist who winds up working at the Laboratoire de Médicine Légale in Montreal. Here she bristles at the conservative attitudes of some of her Canadian colleagues.
