message 1: by Sophia (new)

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


message 2: by Hazel (new)

Hazel What about 'House of God'?


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?


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!


message 5: by Amy (new)

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


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.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads You could add them.

i'm actually not familiar with how to do that. i usually just log into the site to keep track of my own progress and get recs from friends and do the same for them.

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


message 10: by Rachael (new)

Rachael done!


message 11: by Melanie (new)

Melanie Great list - this genre is fascinating.


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 13: by Samantha (new)

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


message 14: by Rachael (new)

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


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Don't think so.


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


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.


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


message 19: by Paul (new)

Paul Bowes Checked for duplicates: 1 book removed.
