Armstrong The Bone Collector - Original by iClassicalCom, on FlickrI have finished The Bone Collector! When I picked up from where I left off last week  the suspense really started to amp up. The victims the murderer kidnapped were a mother and daughter, which raised the stakes. But with Lincoln Rhyme on the case the perp had no chance. If you only watch the movie you really miss out on the depth of the relationship between Lincoln and Amelia that added to the suspense and anticipation of what would happen next. The ending was completely different from the movie, which is the movies loss. To put it plainly, the movie is a simplistic version of the book with some plot changes.

Update on ‘The Bone Collector’

I am heavily addicted and on my toes. Last Thursday I made a post about the booArmstrong The Bone Collector - Original by iClassicalCom, on Flickrk I was currently reading (The Bone Collector), and the book I was planning to read (Dogs: Bullets and Carnage). I haven’t made much of a dent in the manga, but man, I just can’t seem to put down The Bone Collector. 

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.
