I'm not preaching. I'm not on a soap box. People keep saying that you have to look beyond some of the filth to see the incredible talent of the author, etc. I guess I can't overlook the harshness of the filth. How do you ignore the F word? I know. It ruins everything. I'll have to stop spending my own cash on books I think are "worthwhile" and go back to haunting the libraries for free.

Then, only my time will be wasted rather than my time AND my money. View all 13 comments. May 11, Sue rated it really liked it Recommends it for: readers of Nevada Barr with qualification.

Shelves: favorite-authors , mystery , read-in This was a more difficult read than the "typical" Anna Pigeon mystery novel. Instead of the wide vistas of various national parks and the descriptions of the natural world that offset the human predators she deals with, the setting is the darker side of New Orleans and modern day sex slavery and pedophiles.

Anna continues her recovery from her breakdown after her traumatic experiences written about in Winter Study and only partially relieved if not added to in Borderline. She has undergone so many changes in recent years, having found a new love and married again.

Winter Study

This time in New Orleans was to be a further time of healing but Anna cannot constitutionally walk away from anything that feels wrong. While the subject matter is difficult, and likely not for all readers, the writing is, as always, excellent. I believe I've read all of this series now. This book kept me bound to find out what would be the outcome.

To give too many details would be unfair As must be obvious, it was not too dark for me; such situations exist in our world.

Ms Barr has taken on a horrific subject and made it real. The people that really disturb me? The blind idiots who gave the book a bad review. This is a desperately important issue, one that is ignored, denied, and swept under the rug by people who would just as soon pretend it doesn't happen.

High Country (Anna Pigeon Mysteries, Book 12)

If you stick your fingers in your ears and hum really loud, it will just all go away, right? I had a minister tell me once upon a time that things like this simply didn't happen - that humans were too "Godly" for this to ever happen, and that I was a monster for saying it did.

Yes, and Santa comes down the chimney, the Tooth Fairy delivers quarters, and the man with the van really only wants to give your child a piece of candy - he never would really hurt a fly, right? Yes, dear morons, it happens, and No, it isn't a 'curable disability' it is a monstrous, horrific twist to the psyche that is incurable, other than with a needle in the arm or in "Old Sparky" too good a fate or by burning slowly at a rotisserie operated stake much more like it.

Thank you, thank you, Ms Barr, for writing "Burn". Yes, the reviews of many are stupid, simplistic, blind and cruel. I wonder what these same people would say if it were THEIR children who were taken and used in this manner? Ms Barr does an exceptional job of pulling off the cover of banality and blindness and writing a book which brings these horrors to life.

To say true, I had sort of gotten bored with Anna.

See a Problem?

As she has gotten older, she has gotten stodgy and dull sort of like the rest of us. None of her stories, in my estimation, really addressed anything truly important any longer.

It was more like running around telling you about state parks and having fights. Apparently, Ms Barr was a bit bored with Anna herself, and decided to do something deeply worthwhile with her character. Hooray for her! The book is absolutely fantastic, and, hopefully, will bring attention to an issue that Americans have ignored for far too long.

If the book opens the eyes of only a few, it will be worth the effort she put into writing a deep, intelligent, and worthwhile book.

Oh how it pains me to give a Nevada Barr book a 1 star rating. In fact, I kind of wish I could give this a no star rating. I missed Anna running through the wilderness in a national park seeking out clues to a murder.

In Burn, Anna is taking a break from her problems. There is all too much graphic sex in this story- adult sex clubs, strip clubs, prostitution, and the very worst, child sex abuse. And Barr does not just gloss over this unfortunate topic to give us a feel for the evil that is out there in the world, she gives voice to it with descriptions that I did not need to ever in my life read. Unfortunatly, the worst of it was towards the end of the book so I had already read most of the book when I got to it and I wasn't strong enough to put it down without reading the resolve.

My husband told me not to read it. He didn't explain why and I wish that he had given me specifics because had I know how bad it truly was, I wouldn't have begun it. It was tasteless and icky and I'm tossing my copy into the garbage.

I was excited to win this advance-read book on Goodreads, especially because I have read other books by Nevada Barr in her Anna Pigeon series and I really like the character. This story was darker than some of Anna's other adventures.

This Nevada Barr mystery was not as enjoyable as the previous novels. I had a difficult time getting into the book and sticking with it. I didn't care for the New Orleans setting of the book and have really enjoyed the outdoor settings in the national parks in the past. That may be why I didn't care for "Burn" as much as Barr's previous novels. Oct 21, Lobstergirl rated it did not like it Recommends it for: Jim Oberweis.

Shelves: fiction , mystery-thriller. I'm kind of ready for Anna Pigeon to be killed off.
