Feb 14, Christine rated it did not like it. The early ones really were fun, technically interesting, interesting characters, decently written never anything amazing , thrilling and generally pleasant little reads.
As I read I kept thinking about how many cardinal signs of mental illness were present in different elements of the book - rampant paranoia by some characters, weird fixations, hypersexualization, hugely disordered thinking.
It was so bad it was almost fascinating to keep reading it. A little research on the author reveals that she does indeed have some mental health issues of her own which makes things make a little more sense.
How could her publisher have let this go to press without substantial editing? Dec 29, Joanie rated it liked it.
In my opinion this has got to be one of the worst books Cornwell has written. Ok, I understand that the story have to do with people who have serious psychological problems but it seems that Cornwell decided to make all the characters …….
Kay Scarpetta is an unhappy and boring woman. It is a mystery to me why men fall in love with her. She should have some charismas No More Cornwell. The men, lets see how I can describe some of the main characters.
Benton seems to have lost his intelligence, Marino, although never an angel now has become a complete creep. I really struggled on through to the end, but it is not that bad if you want to read something easy on the airplane, like me, or in the beach.
View all 3 comments. Jul 17, Quillracer rated it did not like it Shelves: First of all, Cornwell continues her de-evolution of her characters that started somewhere about "The Body Farm.
Even the title is a throw-away. Book of the Dead? Self is back, and is manic-depressive I know, big surprise , and is foul as ever.
But the worst is Marino. Patricia hates him, apparently. He used to be just slovenly but a good investigator, and loyal, and a "good guy.
He talks about the "Hinelick" maneuver, and the "Dewey Decibel" system. When was Marino ever dumb? Now he has the IQ of lettuce. Oh, and the worst?
While drunk one night, he attempts to rape Scarpetta. Or perhaps is simply off her meds Wikipedia says she is bi-polar, which explains a bit.
Or 2 Paticia is dead and her books are being written by committee by her publisher who recognizes a cash cow when he sees one.
Either way, I am done with her and her incomprehensible books. Jan 22, Johanna rated it did not like it. I fear even an autopsy would struggle to uncover anything new here.
View all 8 comments. Oct 25, Kellie rated it it was ok Shelves: Rose puts it all in perspective when she makes this comment to Kay.. I was so disappointed in this.
Scarpetta has a private practice in Charleston. Kay and Benton are in Italy at the beginning investigating a brutal murder of a famous tennis star.
When Scarpetta goes back to Charleston, she receives the body of a young boy who has no identity. Ever Rose puts it all in perspective when she makes this comment to Kay..
Everything is some how related but the way things are tied together is murky. The reader has no idea what the setting is at times and that left me very frustrated.
One reviewer labled the mystery as convoluted and I agree. It seemed to be a hodge podge of information thrown on a wall and whatever stuck is what the author went with.
Not one, not ever. And Lucy is still the smart, haunted and miserable girl she has always been. I appreciate the fact the author has changed this series to keep things interesting, but I honestly think she choose the wrong path.
This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Nonetheless, the book was an enjoyable read, although I thought the ending was disappointing.
The plot was, in a way, too incestuous - everyone and everything mentioned was linked in too many ways. Why does it matter?
Oct 29, Vivienne rated it it was ok Shelves: I have loved the Kay Scarpetta series since its inception but have been disappointed in the last three and this one I am adding to that list.
Despite a strong start, tracking down the murderer seemed to take a back seat to the constant misery of the main characters. I never warmed to the brattish Lucy who is now even more insufferable given her extreme wealth.
Pete Marino has been badl I have loved the Kay Scarpetta series since its inception but have been disappointed in the last three and this one I am adding to that list.
Pete Marino has been badly served by his creator and even Kay these days just seems difficult, much of her former light suppressed by anger and neurosis.
I still hope for a return to form but from now on I shall wait and not buy in the first flush of excitment about the arrival of a new Scarpetta novel unless highly reviewed.
Then I came across this one in a charity shop. Unfortunately, I should have stayed with my original decision that Ms Scarpetta is one of the most miserable, wretched and passionless women I have ever read about.
Considering she is described as an intelligent, beautiful, highly respected woman working i oh dear. Considering she is described as an intelligent, beautiful, highly respected woman working in a tough profession, she lacks any personality apart from the practice of emotional denial and avoidance.
Everyone is always miserable; the long, soooo long conversations where the characters are talking about entirely different topics; the stereo typing of Ms Rose, the secretary, and Bull, the handyman; after the first chapter, I felt Ms Scarpetta and her team didnt really care, so why should I?
The focus was on science, one upmanship and computer toys, not the victims. It may be that Ms Cornwall also came to the same conclusion; one moment I thought I was reading the climax of the whole story, when no!
Not sure I will be trying another Scarpetta book any time soon Dec 11, Tulara rated it really liked it. It does, however, open the door to an interesting track to find out who the killer is.
No one can do what they do and remain who they were when they left. I was a little annoyed with the miscommunication that Scarpeta and Benton have - all the time.
Throughout the book, they were spatting. Pete has gone through a lot of things, but this last iteration of his "love" for Scarpeta is a little over the top.
I also felt the ending was a little pushed - wrapping everything up in a hurry with not much attention on the murderer. But still, it was a nice read and kept my attention - I got through most of it on my two two-hour plane flights when we went to Florida.
Aug 18, Ranny rated it it was ok Shelves: The accurate descriptions were there. The serial killer plot was there. The unrelenting search is ever present.
Then I realized, BAM, her characters suck. Not they suck as in they are despicable people that should not have lived. No, they suck as in they are unlovable people and the way they are presented in the book annoys me to no end.
I have been enjoying this series so much - even though all of the main characters irritate the shit out of me for the most part. I fail to understand why Ms Cornwell created the most annoying arsehole of all - Pete Marino.
He has always been an incredible ass-hat, and in this book Ms Cornwell has taken it to a new level. I have seen him come from being a middle-aged, overweight,lazy slob to feels like suddenly being a fifty something,badass, Harley-riding gym freak And now the latest drama?
He is too much. When will he be killed off,please? Dec 01, Brent Soderstrum rated it liked it. The series has devolved from being about the killer and catching him with the characters in the background to being mostly about the characters.
In the latest episode of the soap opera that is the life of Kay and her posse, Kay is in Charleston, South Carolina now.
Lucy has a brain tumor. Benton and Kay are engaged but he lives and works in Boston. And finally Marino is dating a horny skank who is getting him to rub testosterone gel on his body so he can take care of her needs.
Marino steps way over the line with Kay and then disappears. Oh yeah, the murder He has also been getting psychiatric help from media star Dr.
Marilyn Self as was Drew Martin. Scarpetta based on the book prior to this one. Dec 20, Matt rated it really liked it Shelves: Cornwell shifts her Scarpetta series away from the balmy clime of south Florida to the enchanting streets of Charleston, South Carolina.
Bringing Pete Marino with her, Scarpetta sets up shop in the South in hopes of turning her abilities into a full-fledged consultant, cognizant of her long-time friendship with the former cop and his less than kosher investigative style.
When she is called to consult with Italian officials on a slain tennis star who was recently in Charleston, Scarpetta comes ac Cornwell shifts her Scarpetta series away from the balmy clime of south Florida to the enchanting streets of Charleston, South Carolina.
When she is called to consult with Italian officials on a slain tennis star who was recently in Charleston, Scarpetta comes across an elusive killer, The Sandman, whose kills seem fueled by some personal vendetta..
Plagued by a television psychiatrist that caused her headaches while still in Florida and a Marino who continues to lose touch with reality and comes perilously close to losing it all, Scarpetta musters enough strength to keep herself busy.
With Benton living and working in Boston, their relationship takes another strain, one that they try to mend by taking a major leap. When the body of a child surfaces in a backwater lagoon, Scarpetta begins trying to piece the larger picture together, while those around her continue to unravel and leave her to pick up the pieces.
Can Scarpetta make sense of the evidence and catch this killer or is it all slipping away, like sands in the hourglass? It is as though Cornwell has been told to shake up the snow globe that is the series and make new connections and destroy old storylines with whom avid readers have become tired.
While it is hard to keep things fresh this far into a series, the continual change and pitfalls makes it a little harder to rein in, especially for readers who consider themselves great fans, as I do.
I seek some stability, while Cornwell seeks to keep things unstable and on thin ice, in hopes that major change will produce new and exciting paths down which Scarpetta can travel.
Kudos, Madam Cornwell on another great book, though I am eager to see where you are taking the reader on this ever-evolving trip.
Por lo tanto se los recomiendo ampliamente: Sep 04, Lori rated it really liked it. Her books are always very engrossing and I hate to put them down.
This one got me through two stomach viruses in one week! I came to the conclusion that Kay, Benton, Lucy, and in his own way, Marino, are all highly intelligent people that lack emotional and social smarts.
I want Kay and Benton to either commit or break up. Their relationship is ridiculous. The end of this book is very disturbing and implies a sequel is necessary.
The plot of this book, while very interesting and engaging, is at times, confusing. I had to reread things as the author quickly jumps to conclusions.
When the characters are talking to each other, they leave out a lot of "filler", so that you really have to think about what they are saying.
Sometimes the pronouns are unclear. I like the new character, Bull, who I assume will remain a constant. Oct 22, Piglet rated it it was ok.
Not my favourite among the Scarpetta books. On the other hand, they seem to grow worse with every book now.
I, for one, am getting tired of the stories being so centrated to miss Scarpetta herself, the murders and mysteries always involving her somehow.
And I thought that in this book pretty much all of the characters were annoying. I find books about murdering psychopaths interesting, I admit that, but in this case it felt like the murder story was hidden way too far behind the Not my favourite among the Scarpetta books.
I find books about murdering psychopaths interesting, I admit that, but in this case it felt like the murder story was hidden way too far behind the crappy behaviour of the main characters and that the story definitely did not get to the bottom with the actual "mystery" of the book.
Feb 11, Alexandra Bogdanovic rated it did not like it. Never have I been so furious and so disgusted by a book in my whole entire life.
I am so angry, I decided not to continue reading -- and I very, very rarely fail to finish a book. I read fiction -- especially mysteries, thrillers, etc.
As a rule, I do not read political thrillers for precisely the same reason. If you are among the millions of sheep in the United States of America who are incapable of thinking for themselves; or the type who buys everything pop culture, the media and government puts forth as gospel, you might actually enjoy this.
Personally I will never pick up another Cornwell book again. Dec 20, Bill rated it it was ok. This book is the worst of the lot by a large margin.
I found it to be rambling and oftentimes incomprehensible. The conclusion felt rushed - like Cornwell spent so much time trying to add unnecessary detail to the story that she had to wrap everything up quickly and in an unsatisfying fashion.
In addition to a large custom-built house that includes a restaurant kitchen, a great room , and a mud room , Scarpetta also drives a new Mercedes , which she replaces often: He is not killed in it but near it.
She resigns after the events of The Last Precinct and relocates to Florida to become a private forensic consultant. Scarpetta returns to Virginia in Trace , convincing herself that she was fired from her position, at the request of her replacement, Dr.
In Predator , Scarpetta becomes the head of the National Forensic Academy in Hollywood, Florida , a private institution founded by her wealthy niece Lucy.
In Scarpetta , she has relocated to Massachusetts , where she is an M. This novel points out that the underlying pun is similar to the name of Caligula.
The novel features a website named Caligula, which is involved indirectly in the murder of a young woman. She enters the FBI at 18, but is not well accepted due to her suspected sexual orientation and her genius IQ.
Lucy has a habit of establishing long-term romantic relationships which last a few books and then end with little explanation. For example, Jo is last seen taken home in Black Notice by her parents following an underground operation that went bad during which Lucy shot her.
She also has several one-night stands—even a few with men—and engages in other risky behaviors with firearms and various high-speed vehicles.
She also gets into a firefight between two helicopters , using handheld firearms. The relationship haunts Lucy and those who are close to her in several books.
Lucy becomes a self-made millionaire by the age of 25 by building and selling internet search engines —years before Google.
She has a penchant for buying expensive machines like helicopters , Ferraris , and motorcycles. She also purchases a private jet, for which she earns a private pilot license.
In Predator , Lucy is diagnosed with a benign brain tumor that alters her physical appearance and seems also to modify her personality. In The Book of the Dead she is undergoing treatment; in later books the disease is not mentioned.
However, by the time of the novel Blow Fly , Lucy is almost 30, while Scarpetta is still 46 rather than a more realistic In the earlier books of the series, Pete Marino worked as a homicide detective for the Richmond police department, eventually rising to the rank of Captain.
Marino is an excellent detective and has worked well for many years with Dr. Scarpetta, eventually joining her at the National Forensic Academy after retiring from the police force in Predator.
Marino seems to have problems with women through the whole Scarpetta series, stemming from a prior marriage which resulted in a son who becomes a lawyer for a drug cartel.
Throughout the series Marino plays a great part in the upbringing of Lucy, although it seems that he has issues with her sexuality.
Pete Marino grew up in Bayonne, New Jersey. His actions lead to a confrontation with Lucy and her almost shooting him, after which Marino disappears.
It is unknown if he has killed himself or just runs away as the book ends.No letters, please, about Miss Marple.

Inside this book you will find a link that will allow you to download three classics for FREE along with three free audiobooks. I just love revisiting Patricia Cornwell's characters that I have gotten to know over the past 15 years. The switch to third person was a terrible move. They are sometimes gross but that's the job. Rather in the way that Ian Fleming's ennui with James Bond in the later books of the sequence emerged as an interesting ambiguity in about what he did for a living, so the possibility that Cornwell may have written too much about the same things informs the feeling that Scarpetta is a woman who has seen too much and dreams of getting out. Then on a scorchingly hot summer in July 11 year old Niel and his younger brother Sam, age 8, were headed to the local pond to for some relief from the searing sun and heat when they Three years ago Dr. Glad I didn't buy it!

There are also new characters, although these unfortunately represent a tendency towards rather hokey Southern Gothic which has become apparent in later Cornwell:. Third, to present a summary of the papers in the context of the theory. In my opinion this has got to be one of the worst books Cornwell has written. If you can put aside the over-the-top characterizations, though, Cornwell's plotting is up to form, and she leads the reader on a merry bicontinental chase toward an unexpected denouement. Three years ago, David Hunter moved to rural Norfolk to escape his life in London, his gritty work in vfb tabelle, and a tragedy that nearly destroyed him.

Book of the dead scarpetta summary - Yet I would've liked a little more time with the killer, would have preferred my grisly more close to the bone.

Ich will bwin casino bonuscode sagen, dass mir das Buch nicht gefallen hat, das kann man bei 4 Lotus casino las vegas wikipedia nun wirklich nicht behaupten. Roman kao gametwist casino la fiesta romana. I gave up on Ms Scarpetta's adventures a while ago because I found Kathy Reichs to be more book of the dead scarpetta summary, the female character flawed but gutsy. Obviously, in every similar novel there's necessarily a moment in which the writer tells the reader whodunit, but Beckett wrote this ending with a rake. Additionally, the ending, although quite exciting caused me to role my eyes. Those casino royale tickets pages were awfully boring in my opinion.
