Darnton is new to me and this was intriguing enough to make me want to try his other books---yes, lots of medical information but at the end of the audio is a description of all of the investigating he did to make sure he was accurate. ( )

This book started out with a great premise. The first few pages had me hooked - or so I thought. About 50 pages in I started getting bored. Soon I was skimming multiple pages at a time. The author obviously did extensive research for this novel and, sadly, decided to put every bit of it into the story. I found the constant intricate medical talk distracting. The amount of information was unnecessary and took me out of the story. Also, the characters had a tendency to go through two or three pages of introspection - over and over - to the point where the story lost its zing.

This book could easily have been 100 pages shorter without losing anything. In fact, a shorter version would have gained intensity (for me, anyway). ( )
