I long ago gave up on the Bones tv show because she started to really annoy me. I'm really glad I gave the series a chance because I find book Brennan much more likable and really enjoy the depth that Reichs has given her. At first I kept trying to figure out the characters in the book as they related to the tv show but quickly got drawn into the story and left the tv Bones far behind. I also liked the quick pace of the book and the tension between Brennan and Ryan. I am putting the rest of the series on my TBR list ASAP.
