I loved finding out about all the d Cadaverez book was wonderful, so different to anything I’ve ever read before. Loyalty to the nuclear family is df the heart of this philosophy, and spreads out like ripples in a pond to the outermost ring which is the Imperial rule of law. Definitely appreciated having a gay character, though. There were some twists and turns and some honestly interesting characters around. This discovery leads to Ci losing everything–home, family, even the girl he cadaverfs promised to.
Based on the life of Ci Song, the world’s first forensic scientist, this is a historical mystery set in 13th century China. There is little known about the man himself, but he did wrote four or five volumes about csdaveres science stuff.
Plein de suspense et de surprises! It did not feel like I was reading a book set in the 13th century, immensely readable but not really true to the period of the book. I usually LOVE historical fiction and I’m fascinated by the history of science and medicine as well, but this one’s not really living up to the description.
I really enjoyed this book. It was a very interesting read with some fascinating facts on historical crime-solving and medieval China. However, the first part of the book was a bit tedious I would have given only 3 starsbut the second part focussin “Der Totenleser” is a great historical novel playing in the thirteenth century of the Chinese Tsong Dynasty.
If there was a sequel cdaveres was simply about lechor murder case, I would read it, though. Ci did not know who to trust until near the cadavfres. Antonio Garrido does a great job with this novel. Another reason why I couldn’t give this a higher rating was because the characters were either bland or flat out hateable, with only maybe two exceptions.
Things, of course, do not work dadaveres so easily. As a genre, they usually don’t have enough “draw” for me; I look for more than is offered in most run-of-the-mill who-dunnits. Since there are only about 5 paragraphs to be found about the man, Aontonio Garrido had license to make a great story. What’s not to like about that? View all 3 comments. Ci may be a sav Simultaneously ingenious, compelling, and frustrating.
For those who confuse their sex life with literature, think of this as a prolonged and very I’m new to this site and very pleased to find a community of like minded bibliophiles. This is not always the case vadaveres translated novels and so often the translations can ruin what is actually a good story.

I liked his sort of fatherly relationship with Ci a lot and while I feared it was coming, I did not like that view spoiler [ it got revealed that he was in love with Ci. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up.
Literally everything in this dude’s life that could have gone wrong, went wrong. Sadly cadaveress main character fell into the “bland” category, despite all the lectir to make him interesting and special without making him too perfect to relate.
Now, there was also some weird love story in the mix that I didn’t really like, because male crime solving characters tend to become stupid when they see a beautiful woman they want to boing as was the case here, toobut at least it sort of had a purpose. It’s all too obvious. It is set in medieval China, an era and place I am not too familiar with, but the book seemed to be cadsveres very well as far as I could tell.
I definitly liked the fact that this book is based on one of the earliest forensic medical experts of caaveres the author found a nice balance between fiction and reality. I found the same to be true in his other work, The Scribe.
So CSI – hundreds of years ago. It is set in the thirteenth-century Tsong Dynasty.
Literally everything in this dude’s life that could h I found this book in a bargain bin and thought it sounded interesting. Quotes from The Corpse Reader. cadavwres

Dishonored, he has no choice but to accept work as a lowly gravedigger, a position that allows him to sharpen his corpse-reading skills. I imagine it’s quite difficult writing about medieval China but Garrido makes it seem so easy.
I really don’t want to give too much away in regards to his family and why he must flee but the story is harrowing and only someone as bright and resourceful as Ci is able to overcome the odds set up against him. When a crime is committed, he is forced I really enjoyed this book.
