I read that Rubin is a public health advocate. I wonder how much of her personal experience fueled her knowledge of the medical plot points in this novel.

I'll be honest here. I hated this book and didn't even finish it. I couldn't finish it because I found it slow and I couldn't catch on to it.

I read medial thrillers rarely, but I really enjoyed this one since the author's writing style is fluent and involving. The element of suspense in the book was also well done. All in all it is worth a read.

I have very mixed feelings about this book. I'll admit that I did not finish it due to school taking up 90% of my time now, but of what I did manage to read, I didn't quite like it. I loved the concept and the plot, but something about it just didn't sit right with me.
So many books to read, so little time..
