I knew I would probably like this series because it's all about forensic entomology. I am pretty much fascinated by anything that has to do with forensics and if I weren't a very busy full time mom right now, I would consider devoting a part of my life to the study of forensics.
I really liked the main character from the start. He's cynical but funny. After I had gotten into the book I realized his personality was strikingly similar to House's from the TV series, except this guy came before House. He's also a whole lot funnier. I find House annoying and offensive at times. I didn't mind this guy saying some of the things he said to people, because he's was saying them to people who had committed murder, not to people who were dying in the hospital.
I'm looking forward to reading the next book.
