Customer Review

Format: Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
I've read a few books by doctors and paramedics about their frontline duties and I expected this to be similar. It isn't. The writing is spare and stark. The people are unforgettable. The girl who bleeds as fast as blood is transfused into her, though no one knows why; the man who keeps coming back about chest pains but keeps discharging himself as soon as the doctors get close to finding out what's wrong with him; the car crashes, the gunshot wounds, the broken neck which he does not identify and the child whose life he saves.

This is not a book with many happy endings. Each story is complete in iteself and covers only a few pages. It isn't 'Casualty' in book form - it is far darker and yet more human than a television drama. If you want everyone to be brought back from the dead at the last minute this is not the book for you.

It is profound and moving with flashes of joy like colours in shot silk and well worth the short time it takes to read. You will not have read anything like it.
