5.0 out of 5 stars Bodies, 23 July 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Bodies (Paperback)
I work in a hospital and thought this could be a good read, I wasn't wrong, it made me laugh and cry. As a picture of the modern NHS it is a damming indictment, although it is fiction it presents an accurate picture of what it is like to be both a patient and a member of staff in a hospital. The book also remained true to its title, the descriptions of all the different bodies that were encountered were accurate and insightful. Bodies retains much of the 'darkness' that characterised 'Cardiac Arrest' with the doctors appearing as the bad guys although not intentionally. By the end of the book you couldn't help but feel sorry for both the patients and junior doctors as they were at the mercy of what was portrayed as an uncaring system. A cracking good read that moves at a pace that should keep even the slowest reader interested.
