Journal Entry 1 by potok-fan from Turku, Varsinais-Suomi / Egentliga Finland Finland on Monday, July 24, 2006
This is one of two books which I picked up on the cruise ship Kristina Regina (there's a sort of swap-library in the ship's cafe). In exchange, I left two other books onboard: The Colour of Magic and Esirippu.

As for this book's journey up to now, the evidence suggests that the book had at least three owners before being left aboard Kristina Regina. The first probably bought it for the recommended retail price printed on the back cover, £6.99. The book also has a price tag from an Oxfam charity shop on the back cover, £2.49, AND the faint traces of a now-erased pencilled price of £1.50 on the first page. Somehow the book ended up on a Finnish cruise ship (which caters mainly to Finnish passengers, but also takes internationals - our own cruise consisted of many Finns plus one New Zealander, two Australians, one American, one Canadian, and about a dozen Russians). I picked it up while we were moored off the coast of Iceland, and have now brought it back to my home in Finland.

I read and enjoyed an earlier Kathy Reichs, so I thought I'd like this one, but it has just sat on my shelf... I guess I'm not much tempted by thrillers these days. So it's time to set this free again - I'll take it to the All-Finland bookcrossing meeting, kesäpäivät, so it can find a new reader there.

RELEASE NOTES:

I'll offer this at the Kesäpäivät book buffet. If nobody takes it, I'm sure it'll be part of a mass release on Sunday.

Journal Entry 4 by Annelis from Kerava, Uusimaa / Nyland Finland on Sunday, June 08, 2008
No mass release for this book, yet. I did not read any books by Kathy Reichs, even if I have at least one book written by her. Well, now I have one more. Kirja löytyi Suomenlinnasta tuunattavien joukosta.
And to think that this book was found on Kristina Regina. My brother and his wife have sailed many times on that ship and Iceland was the first place they ended to. In July they are cruising to Greenland. I hope that no icebergs will be sailing with them!

Journal Entry 5 by Annelis at Kerava, Uusimaa / Nyland Finland on Monday, February 21, 2011
I think this the third book written by Kathy Reichs and read by me. I like especially the forensics and scientific details even if they may be kind of nauseatic and even if I possibly don't understand them right.
I guess I'll start to read the next one in the series quite soon.
It is a funny thing that this book was caught on Kristina Regina. I was on a cruise last April and I swapped a couple of books in the ship's cafe too.
Thank you for the book, Potok-fan!

Thank you annelis! It was such a great surprise to receive a wishlist book at our today's meet up. I'm looking forward to read the book!

Journal Entry 7 by Niksu at Helsinki, Uusimaa / Nyland Finland on Saturday, March 05, 2011
Absolutely gripping start that made me want to read the book quickly till the very end. I started yesterday morning in the buss and just finished, luckily I had a lazy Saturday ahead.

I was a bit confused by the multiplicity of characters in the middle of the book and I felt slightly annoyed but got it over with eventually and enjoyed the rest of the book. This was one of her better books.

EDIT to Kirjakko's entry: I have assumed Brennan's dog is chow mix. Not the original Chow Chow.

Journal Entry 11 by wingkirjakkowing at Helsinki, Uusimaa / Nyland Finland on Sunday, May 08, 2011
Now this is going to be great fun for all you previous readers and cruisers... I picked this up from Kaapelitehdas today and in a week's time I'll be off to try out the new Kristina ship, Kristina Katarina (Kristina Regina is out of circulation and will have a new life as a floating hotel in Turku)!!! So this book will definately fly with me to Malaga and continue by sea to Madeira and the Azur islands and when I've finished it, will be left to the ship's library (there HAS to be one on the new boat as well). What a tiny, tiny world!
I hope the name is not an omen. I took two books from Kaapelitehdas, "I came, I saw, I lost My Luggage" by Peter Biddlecombe and this, The Fatal Voyage... Travelling fever, perhaps?
(Edit: I, too, have been to Iceland on Kristina Regina, in 2007).

Journal Entry 12 by wingkirjakkowing at Helsinki, Uusimaa / Nyland Finland on Tuesday, May 17, 2011
Just a few lines from onboard the new ship Kristina Katarina.
Read the book, a bit far fetched plot and a bit too long all in all, but partly ok. Not perhaps the best of travel books, as it told about a plane crash and my trip started with a flight to Malaga... As a doggy person I wonder why the writer chose a chow of all breeds and repeatedly described its pink tongue as chows are the only dogs which according to their standard HAVE TO HAVE a blue tongue...
Left the book in the new library on Katarina. Not a bad ship either, but not as personal as Regina was. And on the second day our shower floated and smelled like a dead rat afterwards...
The weather has been lovely and Madeira was wonderful. I have found my very own saint, Antonio, the saint of misplaced things!
Edit: By the Azur islands the book had disappeared from the library.
Edit 2: And the smell did dissappear from the loo.
Edit 3: Comment to Niksu's comment: The dog described didn't have any typical temperamental characters chows have (they usually are like oriental people - calm, sullen even and not showing their feelings) and their tongue should be blue - so why choose to call the "thing" a chow mix? I'd say pure ignorance.
