first, i was deeply offended by some of the prior reviews of this book, including one by a person who references herself as a "future doctor's wife." i resent any use of the phrase "hardcore feminist" in a derogatory manner to address an opinion that differs from one's own. really and truly, please. become a bit more evolved. This book IS a work of fiction, but it has roots in the modern day "right to life" movement. Not so long ago, quite a few "kill lists" came out on the internet, complete with the names of abortion doctors and their family's personal information. Not all pro-lifers are violent, just like all people with mental illness are not delusional. This novel demonstrates what happens when people are willing to shed blood over their beliefs. The plight of the doctor in the novel happens every day to thousands of doctor's across the country, making the plot line generally feasible. Alright, enough about that. As a work of fiction, this was a quick and easy read, gripping to the end. I don't attempt to form my thoughts and opinions on the lives of others by what i find in the fiction section of the bookstore. Would i recommend this book to others? Yes, but remember: the mind is like a parachute. It only works when its OPEN.
