I bought this audio book a couple years ago already and tried several times but could not get into it. Finally I just powered on and got hooked. Great book. And now I’m going to watch the first season of the TV show and see it come to life.

Singing to Makai

Is it bad that this is the song that we sing the most to Makai?

In other news, daytime television is THE WORST.

I don’t really care for the popular TV show Bones, but I always thought the concept was cool. The show is based off a series of books that were actually written by a forensic anthropologist (Reichs). I thought I’d give the first book in the series a try and I really liked it, exception being that some parts were super graphic so gruesome that I had to skip them. Guess that is the downside of having a specialist who really knows what she’s talking about actually writing the books. Also, the book was much different than the TV series. Not necessarily a bad thing :). Maybe the book series eventually goes to where the show it, but the first book had Tempe living in Montreal and not working at a museum and teaming up with the FBI. Her role is Director of Forensic Anthropology for the province of Quebec. She works with the Montreal and Quebec police.
