Great job on the review. If it were not for the book being a thriller I would read it, but otherwise I am not into thrillers.

I have never read a medical thriller...the term kind of puts me off, but this book actually sounds really good! Great review!

Wonderful review! I started reading this and now compelled to keep reading to find out if Jeremy ever finds happiness. My heart breaks for him and his mom. As a single mom myself, I feel Jeremy's mom's pain.
The book is very well written and the character development keeps you reading to find out more.
I want to shake the mom and tell her to ditch the loser boyfriend

Thank you everyone for your kind comments and for so generously sharing the promotion on social media today. As an author, it's difficult to get eyes on our books, so I'm grateful to you all for your interest and for spreading the word. The social issue "Eating Bull" explores is very important to me, and as a thriller writer, I was glad to be able to work it into that genre. Happy Reading to you!

Thanks for the review. Seems like Jeremy has a weight problem with painful side effects of it along with the boil in the groin. Just wonder who is the serial killer. Need to read the book.

I didn't know whether to cringe or feel sorry for Jeremy. Darwin, though, is obviously a freak with psychology problems. Sue may turn out to be good and good for Jeremy but I don't know yet.

I read a few pages of this one and was pretty shocked how the tone shifts so severely between the first and second chapter. Now that I have read your review, I feel more comfortable moving forward.
Thanks for the great review!

Great review. The preview on Amazon convinced me that I would like to read this book. As a former Public Health Nurse I can to relate to the role of Sue.

Eating Bull by Carrie Rubin looks especially enticing. I just know it is going to be one of those books that I just cannot put down. I saw it made a book of the month, so it has to be great.
