Paul Bowes Checked for duplicates: 1 book removed.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads It's at #30 at present.


message 17: by `julie (new)

`julie Buck What about the Alienist by Kalab Karr? Fiction, but a great read, and William Jennings was a real DR.


message 16: by Robaire (new)

Robaire Beckwith I think the Citadel by A J Cronin is a classic 'medical' (part autobiographical) story worthy of this list - it was something of an early inspiration for me


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Don't think so.


message 14: by Rachael (new)

Rachael does anyone know if there's a way to sort this list by rating as opposed to votes?


message 13: by Samantha (new)

Samantha I love this list! These are books I'm really interested in.


message 12: by Cindy (new)

Cindy In my opinion, just because there is a doctor who is a character in the book doesn't qualify as Medicine and Literature, unless it talks about his/her training, work as a doctor, research, etc. But that's just my vote. So The Murder of Roger Ackroyd has little to do with medicine really; it just has a doctor as a character.


message 11: by Melanie (new)

Melanie Great list - this genre is fascinating.


message 10: by Rachael (new)

Rachael done!

At the top right of the page, there's a button that says: "add books to this list".

Susanna - Censored by GoodReads You could add them.


message 6: by Rachael (new)

Rachael the psychology of judgment and decision making by scott plous should really be on here. the book is brilliant and a must-read. there's also choice theory (william glasser), which i personally disagree with but is also non-fiction.

also, brief interviews with hideous men (david foster wallace) and i'm surprised not to find brave new world (aldous huxley) on the list.


message 5: by Amy (new)

Amy Not only House of God, but Mount Misery...


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Sometimes adding the author's name really cuts down on the stuff that's not the book you want.

Glad it worked this time!


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads I had three listings of it pop up - did you try the author's name with the book's title in the search form?


message 2: by Hazel (new)

Hazel What about 'House of God'?


message 1: by Sophia (new)

Sophia Isn't House of God the cult classic and worthy of being on this list?
