This book is truly incredible, considering I am actually taking time to write a review should tell you how awesome this book is. I think the part that really gets me is that he wrote it during in internship at a California hospital, where is he is a doctor. I mean come on! He must have the happiest parents in the world. I am openly going to admit that this man makes me feel bad about myself.

As for the book, it is well formed, well paced, and almost impossible to put down. Dealing with the past and present tense in a novel is nothing new, but doing it so seamlessly and in all the right places is something that is hard to do. So many times we feel jerked around from past tense to present, but the changes in this book just heightened your awareness of the character and drew out the suspense, with more suspense. I don't think I could describe it any better than that. Seriously people, READ THIS BOOK, YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!
