Cori felt nothing underneath her. She knew her eyes were open but still she could see nothing but blackness. She reached out her arms and legs and touched nothing. Continue reading FICTION FRIDAY 12/30/2016
As I read I encounter parts of the book that are tweaked or portrayed differently in the movie. Of course there are going to be some, but there are vital actions and thoughts that characters have that help showcase who they are as well as develop the story and relationships between them which is lost in the movie The Bone Collector. For example, the way Amelia and Rhyme respond and interact with each other is much more personal in the book than in the movie.
Currently I have read 37% of The Bone Collector, about a third of the way into Chapter 13. I am enjoying every page.
Man, this book has me hooked! The Bone Collector by Jeffery Deaver is as captivating as it is intriguing. Lincoln Rhyme is a moody quadriplegic who is stuck in a bed with the entire use of his mind but only the use of his left ringer.The lack of forensic stimulation and crime scene exposure has left him sarcastic and pigheaded. A detective Rhyme use to work with, Sellitto, drops by and asks for his help on a case, leaving the crime scene report behind, which is bait that his mind has already taken. To see how his mind thinks and works helps the reader become more involved with the story, following along with Lincoln Rhyme’s logic.
There is a movie adaptation of the book titled the same. I watched the movie before I started reading the book, which is a rare occurrence, but sort of generalized what I could’ve expected in the book. My mom, who had already read and seen The Bone Collector, in that order, warned me that the portrayal of the relationships between the characters were altered in a way that didn’t truly capture how they were in the book. Currently I have read a only 17% of The Bone Collector, and so far she has been right. It is rare that I encounter a book the first in its series that is over 450 pages long, this being 516. As intriguing as this is I should be finished in no time, no matter the length!
