Releasing into the Medicine Chest bookbox because it fits the theme and the box could use more fiction. Enjoy!

Journal Entry 4 by wingeponine38wing at Winchester, Massachusetts USA on Monday, August 29, 2016
This is the first book by Robin Cook that I've read. I found it uneven, but still a real page-turner if you overlook the less than stellar writing. I found the conversation between the two main characters, both PhD's, very stilted and unnatural. Couldn't decide if it was done on purpose to show how smart they are, what big words they can use. Even this wasn't consistent, or else I got used to it, because by the end their conversation felt more natural.

And with the author being a doctor, there were lots of medical terms not fully explained and therefore, entire sentences - or paragraphs - that one would need a medical dictionary to decipher.

Almost all of the characters are very unpleasant; made me think about the evil in the world. This book is a cautionary tale about greed and the thirst for fame.

I also thought it ended rather abruptly.

But, since I wanted to keep on reading long after my bedtime, I'm still giving it a high-average rating. :-)
