really liked it

To be honest, I expected a thrilling medical drama about the intertwined cases of five patients with a new and scary disease, or something like that. I never expected that this book would instead show the inner workings of a Massachusetts hospital. I was only a little disappointed, Michael Crichton managed to make the seemingly boring into something that managed to keep my attention. Weaving in stories of five different patients with facts and figures about the medical field, Crichton uses his skill to inform the reader in an entertaining way. I am not the biggest fan of non-fiction, but the way that Crichton makes this into a piece of creative non-fiction is inspiring.
