I just wish he could clone himself so we could get more books.
The (anti)hero of this book is a doctor who can save lives that other surgeons cannot. He's the port of last resort for lost causes and consistently pulls off the impossible in the operating theatre. However, redeeming characteristics pretty much stop there, you think. He has some thoroughly bad habits that get him into all sorts of trouble and his life is put well and truly at risk. I'll say no more..
As you may be able to discern, I liked this book. As a humorous book it made me laugh. As a thriller it put me on the edge of my seat and, despite his almost complete lack of redeeming qualities, you find yourself rooting for the bad doctor of the title. I think perhaps it's because there's a part of us that wishes we could do as we please without worrying about it being against the law or having any repercussions and this pampers to this side of us.
It is, though a ripping yarn. Ingenious in parts for sure and I guarantee you'll enjoy reading this book.
You have manipulated material in an interesting and crazy manner - probably as intended - but the whole story begs the question of 'how clever are you really?'
Basically you provide cheap, poorly written junk to the plebs at low prices and of insulting quality.
The only saving grace is that you managed to avoid much of the bad language which constantly occurs in books of this type.
I hope you are able to continue churning out this rubbish because it is actually fun!
He likes to relieve stress by breaking and entering and then stealing others' identities, with somewhat unpleasant consequences.
I didn't like him, or any of the other characters in the book and I didn't care what actions he used to cause mayhem and murder, whether intentionally or unintentionally.
I did persevere to the end, but the end was very rushed and it was a case of oh good, that's it, as I really didn't care that he carried on exactly as he previously had.
I suppose you might habe hoped that he learned from his mistakes, but alas not.
