    "I think that this book is a decent book for the most part. The problem that I had with this one was that it dragged on too much. I found myself reading the book while thinking about something else. Then I realized that I hadn't paid attention to the last two pages and had to go back. That is a sign that what I'm reading is boring me. Anyway, I rate this as average."

    "This was a fun book to read for in a sense, it had me watching like a movie. It was hard to put down, and i found myself in the characters shoes, going through thier actions, but unable to help them because I saw what was coming on the next pages. This was a fascinating read and one worth looking into as it belongs to a larger, very good series. "

    "I have long been a fan of Patricia Cornwell's writing and The Body Farm is one of my favorite Kay Scarpetta books! Cornwell's experience as a medical examiner comes through in every novel she writes, making for some excellent forensic fiction!"

    "A chilling thriller series that turns the usual forensic and serial killer tropes on their head. Humorous, a bit weirdly written, but overall well worth your time if you enjoy crime novels. "

    "Wow: this books really had me gripped! Rather than shocks, the author uses forensics and science to lay the mysteries throughout the plot, which felt much more lifelike than other books of this nature. One of the better thrillers I've read. purely due to the attention toward in-depth characterization."
