That is incredible. I hope he gave his GP a present for setting the ball rolling in the first place!

I agree - I was gobsmacked when I saw how bad he was and how well he was feeling! Such a lucky man!

MaryG2E (goodreadscommaryg2e) | 863 comments A-mazing! Michael Robotham attended the Bendigo Writers Festival in August 2018, and I and my book-reading buddies were queuing up to see him. He is a very effective speaker and highly entertaining to boot. Nobody who heard him then would have had a clue that he was recovering from open heart surgery. We loved him and his books.

He's an excellent speaker who knows how to engage the crowd. I loved meeting him when he was here a couple of years ago :)

Icewineanne | 243 comments He came to our international book fest in Canada, years ago, when he released Bombproof. I’ve never forgotten the wonderful experience. He truly was an entertaining speaker. I was thrilled to meet him afterwards, such a pleasant man.
