I just finished this 2nd book of the series & loved it as much as the 1st one.The characters come alive as if you're watching a movie.I loved how Riley taught Nick how to live again, but I may have chosen a different ending though it was very appropriate.Can't wait to start book #3!
This was the first "Bug Man" book I read and fell in love with the lead character, Nick Polchak. His dialogue is witty and very reminicent of the clean, often funny, and rapid-fire dialogue of an old Bogie (Humphry Bogart) movie. The lessons you learn in entomology are facinating, but not for the weak in heart! The ending totally took me by surprize. Never saw it coming. Great read.
I was furious after reading this book. The mystery is fascinating and the author shows a good grasp of forensic science. I would say it is well written, except that the last half of the book is not appealing emotionally. Life has enough tough stuff to deal with. I don't need fiction to depress me.
I almost don't know how to rate this book. I laughed INSANELY hard, yet when it was over I wanted to shoot myself (or the author). On second thought, yes, the author should be shot. But, hey, it's gotta be a pretty good book to evoke that much feeling. Right? I'd rather hate a book than be bored with it. However, neither of those was the case. I loved this book. Just don't read it if you're in a fairy-tale princess mood.
