From the first chapter I was riveted to the story and the narrator did an excellent job of voices and holding my interest. As an M.D. in internal medicine, I have enjoyed many of Dr. Robin Cook's novels. It certainly makes my commute to the office entertaining no matter what the weather or the traffic. Overall, excellent!
I was told by a good friend who reads tons of books that Robin Cook's mysteries are wonderful and filled with medical and other terminaolgy that I will enjoy all of them.. My biggest disapointment was the narrator. George Guidall ruined the book for me. He sounds old and the women in his books always sound like old gay men. I got thru it but like his reading the "Cat..." books much better. I am also dissapointed to see that he narrates most of Robin Cook's books. I won't be buying anymore of his books.
I enjoyed this book a lot. Kept me entertained. The only problem I saw with it was waiting on the real plot. I didn't think a whole book could be written about one malpractice case and it be so long when it should have been really simple. I could re-write this book in one page. However, I love Robin Cook and the narrator is awesome.
I thought I'd try something new and go for a Cook medical mystery. While it surely was different from my norm, I found it harder to believe than a sci-fi novel.
It was an interesting book but the actual action that needed to happend for the climax/conclusion was protracted beyond standing. Some of the side adventures were interesting but hardly relevant.
Also, the book spoke from the lead characters point of view which set up the mal practice case. while we got to know Craig from this, Cook decided to leave out some very cruicial aspects of Craig's that should've been obvious had we really been in his head.
While I did finish the book, I dont think I'd recommend this book to anyone.
I am historically a Robin Cook fan, but for some reason I did not enjoy this book. I cannot define whether it is the story or the narration, but I was, simply, not satisfied.
Disappointing. Stilted writing, perhaps not so apparent until read aloud. Several exciting passages, but mostly average.
