What the community says about A Morbid Taste for Bones
- "Being the first in a series of many books, A Morbid Taste for Bones is a 12th-century mystery novel of the historical fiction genre. It features the memorable character Brother Cadfael, a monk turned detective. While I didn't read the entire series, I did enjoy the storyline of this novel. Interesting to me, the books inspired a PBS series featuring Brother Cadfael."
- "I loved this book because it was so well written and researched too. The story was wonderful to read and the historical nature of the book made it interesting and too good to put down. I love the crime aspect of the book, and the adventure I felt as though I was on while reading. There were many twists and turns throughout the novel and the descriptions of each setting made it as though I was there and living each scene. An overall wonderful book to read. "
- "This is one of those great mystery novels that really get inside your head. Set in the 12th century, the author does a great job of writing and keeping everything period as he writes the book. He writes with such passion and detail as if feels like you are actually there. Ellis Peters does a magnificent job on the piece of literature. It is a truly remarkable work of fiction."
