I watch very little television. Seriously. Especially in comparison to people who watch tons of shows. But, I adore, absolutely adore the show Castle. I love what ABC has done with the Richard Castle character and that the Nikki Heat books are real. I just wish I'd loved this as much as I love the show. The book is entertaining and it's easy to see the character comparisons between book fiction and the fictional 12th precinct. But, it just shows me again that murder mystery isn't my favorite genre. Sometimes I get lucky with it and this one wasn't bad, it just won't ever be my favorite. I prefer watching Rick and Kate go at each other rather than reading about Rook and Heat.

Best part of the book? The acknowledgements and author interview at the end. Hysterical and so true to the Castle character. ( )

I bought this because I like the Castle tv series and wanted to see the book that began it all. Let me say, I think the TV series far surpasses the voices in my head. The dialogue is flat and uneven. ( )

Probably should never had started watching the TV series if I was going to read the books. The TV series is much better. ( )

Sorry folks! Castle is a guilty pleasure of mine so I couldn't resist!

And it was exactly as I thought it would be. A trashy crime novel with some funnies.

Loved it tho :D ( )
