Doctors by Erich Segal is a work of fiction based on American health professionals. It focuses on the 1962 batch of Harvard medical school and their trials and tribulations to be successful doctors.
Through Erich Segal's eloquent narration, the reader experiences what it takes to be a doctor - the demanding hours of internship, research, residency and overcoming fear. With...more
Erich Segal continues to amaze me with his storytelling abilities. Not only are his plots interesting, but he makes you really identify with the characters. There are no outlandish plot twists or soap opera dramas - just multi-dimensional characters trying to get t ...more
gak kecewa dg tebelnya :P
buat yang minta reviewnya:
Saya baru membaca buku Segal 2 biji, Love Story dan Doctors ini. Tapi, karena buku ini yang paling tebel, jadi buku ini yg terbaik. hehe
Doctors bercerita ttg seluk beluk kehidupan para dokter. Inti cerita berpusat pada tokoh si Barney Livingston dan Laura Castellano, du ...more
Doctors focuses on the lives of Barney Livingston and Laura Castellano, from when they were kindergartners to them being medstudents and their journey as full pledged doctors. This book gives such a great insight on those aspiring to don the white coat someday.

For a non medical reader, you'll relish the story and find newfound respect for doctors. For the ones already in the healing profession, its an eye-opene ...more
The reasons for my reluctance remained: namely the cliche nature of Erich Segal's characters. I have also read "The Class" and there are similarities as to how he develops his characters in both these books: the gorgeous lead female with brains, the class nerd, the handsome jock, the overachievers, the boy next door, the eventual romance tha ...more
But despite my prejudices,It gives an almost realistic view of a doctor's life.
I was addicted to Robin Cook's medical thrillers in school. I have religiously watched every episode of Grey's Anatomy. As a teen I watched many surgeries on Reality TV and aspired to be one someday. To be present at the heart of change and innovation. I realised after some time it was only a fascination with the profession and I wouldn't have the tole ...more
There's a great deal I could say about the politics of this book, most of it grim, so I'll skip a treatise on the profound value of human life.
I saw a quote recently, that "messages are for postcards," but Segal apparently never got that memo. Emotionally and apparently medically shallow, every character in the book has a different trivial agenda, while being given essentially the same voice.
I once stumbled onto a hallway of recent graduates preparing themselves silen ...more
И общо взето дотук са хубавите неща, които мога да кажа за книгата.
Недостатъците не са малко според мен. Твърде много клиширани идеи. Авторът е разгледал повърхностно твърде много морални ди ...more
I also enjoyed the idea that 2 best friends to became lovers. It's a motivational book for those who want a med career, like me, and I recommend it for everyone. My favorite book so far.
There are several other characters we are introduced to in their class. All have different motivations for entering the medical field. They include Bennett Landsmann, a Rhodes Scholar and the black son adopted into a wealthy Jewish family; Hank Benne ...more
Perjuangan hidup seseorang menjadi dokter di tengah berbagai macam himpitan masalah yang mendera mereka di luar pendidikan itu sendiri. Pembaca dibawa untuk memahami bahwa menjadi seorang dokter tidak menjadikan mereka 'dewa'. Mereka juga manusia, sama seperti manusia lain yang berprofesi berbeda. Hanya saja tahun-tahun keemasan dalam hidup mereka harus mereka relakan untuk tersia-sia di ruang pendidikan, masa-masa belajar dan juga saat magang. H ...more
Seth's charecter is the one left out in the cold, so to speak, but also one who has the most to lose: his integrety.
Other then that though. this book is classic Segal, laughter,sorrow, and at times so heartrending that yo ...more

'Doctors' was simply awesome in parts and in others- plain outright boring. Sections of it were outstanding, brilliantly portraying the making of doctors,their internal struggles, growing up and the incidents that influenced their outlook as doctors. Euthanasia also came up in a most riveting fashion. I particularly loved the part about the doublecrossings in the research field.
However, it was too splayed out, with unnecessary plot points. Also, as a medical stud ...more
With dramatic twists and life choices, it all comes to a point where the best friends have to make choices involving their family. Old friends come to picture and ending is how the tone of the story is - happy verging on bittersweet.
I read it for the first time at age 13 and have probably read it at least 20 times since.
It is always on my list of "desert island' books. To me it's the best book Segal ever wrote and one that I will be reading again and again for the rest of my life.
Akan selamanya berterima kasih sama ini buku, karena langsung bisa hapal 12 nervus cranialis berkat "Oh oh oh to touch and feels girls vagina, ah heaven". Dan belum lupa ampe sekarang X)
Tapi dari segi cerita ini, ini dua orang kenapa lamaaaaa bener nyadar sukanya?
Nyindir gw? Hah??? Hah???? *apa coba*
