The 2005 Fox television series Bones is inspired by Reichs' life and writing. The series borrows the name of the books' heroine, Temperance "Bones" Brennan

The 2005 Fox television series Bones is inspired by Reichs' life and writing. The series borrows the name of the books' heroine, Temperance "Bones" Brennan. As in the books, Brennan (Emily Deschanel) is a forensic anthropologist; however, there are many differences: the television character is younger, more socially awkward, and is based in a fictionalized version of the Smithsonian Institution.

Bones Lore: Temperance Brennan. Do you like this video? Temperance: I don't know what that means. Dr. Temperance "Bones" Brennan, born Joy Keenan is a forensic anthropologist and works at the Jeffersonian Institute in Washington, . Temperance's character is very loosely based on author Kathy Reichs. Although the character is named after the heroine in Reichs' crime novel series, her characterization was based on Reichs herself rather than the books' protagonist.

Temperance Deassee Brennan is a fictional character created by author Kathy Reichs, and is the hero of her crime novel series (which are usually referred to as the Temperance Brennan novels). She was introduced in Reichs' first novel, Déjà Dead, which was published in 1997. All the novels are written in the first person, from Brennan's viewpoint. Like her creator, Brennan is a forensic anthropologist.

Temperance Brennan,like her creator Kathy Reichs, is a brilliant, sexy forensic anthropologist called on tosolve the toughest cases. But for Tempe, the discovery of a young girl's skeleton in Acadia, Canada, is more than just another assignment. Evangeline, Tempe's childhood best friend, was also from Acadia.

Now in mass market from the bestselling author, forensic anthropologist, and producer of the FOX television hit Bones—the riveting #1 New York Times bestselling Temperance Brennan novel.In a house under renovation in Charlotte, North Carolina, a plumber discovers a forgotten cellar, and some rather grisly remains—the severed head of a teenage girl, several decapitated chickens, and a couple of cauldrons containing beads, feathers, bones, and other relics of religious ceremonies. In a river not far away, an adolescent boy’s torso carved with a pentagram, is found. Are these crimes the work of Satanists and devil worshippers? Nothing is clear, neither when the deaths occurred, nor where. Was the skull brought to the cellar or was the girl murdered there? As Temperance Brennan is called in to investigate, citizen vigilantes intent on a witch hunt are led by a preacher turned politician, looking for revenge.
  • You all have had "one of those days" -- days when it feels like nothing is going right, and even when something is r I got in one respect, it is wrong in oh! so many more?
    Well, in this book, Temperance is having one of those days. And one of those cases -- or is it not one case, but more? And one of those days with her long-time boyfriend; well, maybe not -- they are broken up... or are they?
    Couple that with exceedingly hot or extremely cold with her daughter, and you have Tempi's personal story during this book.
    Did I mention that her daughter is trying to hook her up with one of her coworkers in the attorneys office in which she works?... And that Tempe had more than simply known him during her school days? And that she is also actively pursuing a meeting of Temperance with Summer, her father's fiance, nearly young enough to be her sister?
    Yes, Temperance is having a slew of very, very bad days. And you'll feel every bit of emotion emitted from those days. And even laugh at how much her responses resemble those you had in similar circumstances.
    And that's just the tip of the iceberg; let's not risk revealing anything that might be considered a spoiler.
    And the cases... Bones found in strange configurations, suggesting stranger still religious practices, including devil worship. And, of course, the media latches onto that. Not just reporting, but nearly calling for vigilante organization against the immoral devil-worshippers infecting the community.
    Will the bambling [Ok, not a real word: think rambling politician overflowing with self-promotion ideas (more aptly, ideals) with Billy Graham charisma, always at the right place at the wrong time (for everyone else, especially law enforcement), and hell-bent upon inciting a modern version of the Salem Witch Trials] politician succeed in inciting public wrath, leading to violent outcry and actions? Will the apparent reporter (who also appears at all the wrong times, in all the wrong places) finally break down her targets, gaining information intended to remain under wraps?...and whose career will she burn in the process?
    And will the links between these cases -- apparent satanic ritual, apparent form of voodoo or witchcraft, murdered cop, possible murdered innocent -- ever surface, or will they prove to be disparate crimes linked merely by temporal proximity?
    No answers here. But you'll be firmly gripped by the author as she leads you through the investigations and, finally, after trials and errors pulling you in all these directions, guides you through to the conclusion. And you'll enjoy every step of the process.

  • Fast-paced mystery with plenty of twists to keep the reader interested. Informative and educational. These stories are not HEA. They are brutal and realistic. Fear of someone's sexual persuasion and religious intolerance are the base of this story.

    “Fear of women’s power runs like a subtext through most of today’s religions. Modern church doctrines are full of stories of sirens and witches and enchantresses under the full moon. Empowering male propaganda. “And it’s so ironic, because ancient artifacts suggest people first worshipped a female deity, a goddess or earth mother. Did you see the image over the coven house door?”

    "I learned of the Law of Threefold Return, the belief that both good and bad deeds reflect back on the doer, and of the Eight Wiccan Virtues: mirth, reverence, honor, humility, strength, beauty, power, and compassion."

    I may re-read this story and always look forward to other works by this author.

  • I just didn't. I've read every book she's written, and I even love the TV series (didn't think I would - don't usually like TV or movie adaptations of books, but they are SO different that I barely think of them as related.)

    As I remember, on all her other books, I've stayed up late into the night because I couldn't put them down. Not so, this one - I kept picking it up and putting it down in fits and spurts. It wasn't holding my attention. And I can't put my finger on the "why".

    I don't mind Tempe's flaws, but I really don't think I (as a fairly intelligent, but in no way medically trained person) should be able to figure out some of the antrhopological mysteries ahead of her. There's even a line where Tempe says, "How did I miss that?" and I had to agree. I may have even yelled out loud, "Yeah, how did you?" startling my husband, to say the least.

    And while I know that we need Tempe involved in investigations to keep the series going, I really don't understand how an anthropologist is allowed to go along to question witnesses or chase down perps. I am very interested in the science, so a little more lab time and a little less, "what is she doing in the street?" wouldn't be a bad thing to me.

    I always enjoy more the books that are set in Montreal - I think I don't love the Charlotte sub-characters as much. The daughter and the ex are just getting way too annoying, the detectives not as engaging... I am glad to see the next book is going back to Quebec.

    I am in no way ready to give up on the series, but I hope the next one is more engaging. That being said, I still wouldn't tell anyone to skip it - just don't expect the best of the series in this one.

  • I have read a few of Kathy Reichs' books and so far this is one of the more interesting ones. I kept wanting to get to the next page to see what the plot is going to throw at me with a few twists that caught me completely off guard.

    I find it difficult to pick up one of Kathy's books and remember that the book Temperance Brennan is quite different from the TV Temperance of which I have watched most of the episodes.

    The book Temperance has a completely different set of characters surrounding her and I am not as familiar with them as I am with the TV Temperance since I have only read a few of the books. This is a small inconvenience though as I take each book as a separate entity and prefer to just jump right into the story and just go with it.

    The story line revolves around Wicca, Voodoo and Santeria and the question of "Who did it?" always comes up as soon as the first body appears.
