* We don't get to know her name. I gave her one.
Eek! I just remembered I am supposed to be doing a book club thing again this month and I haven't read the book. Why do I do this? We are supposed to be reading The Silver Linings Playbook. Good news is I have actually started. It is quite different from the movie in many ways. They changed his dad a lot (so far) to give Robert De Niro a much better role to play. It is interesting that the book club have looked at two books about mental illness for their last two choices. Topical, open and bright texts about mental illness can only be a good thing for illuminating a huge problem that lots of people don't want to talk about. In the time I was supposed to read that though, I finished Kathy Reich's Bones are Forever, and with that caught completely up to date with all her books and have to wait for the next one to be released (and then a little longer so it isn't so expensive). It means I can move onto another mystery writer and their protagonist. I am staying in the 'R's' and heading over to Peter Robinson's Inspector Banks. Banks is far more sensible and down to earth, from what I have read so far, than our Temperance Brennan is becoming. Temperance really should reconsider changing careers. She seems to be the only person on the planet able to do what she does. It necessitates her jetting off thousands of miles out of her jurisdiction to solve crimes no-one else can. And she inevitably ends up captured and narrowly escaping death. Surely there is a limit to how much the cleverest little forensic anthropologist in the world needs to risk.
Who wore it better?
