Barb and 2 other people liked Cynthia's status update
Cynthia is 26% done with Gosnell: I don't know if I'll be able to finish this book soon, but I may be able to pick it up again at a later time when I've recovered from the first few chapters. Gosnell the doctor was about as sick and twisted an individual as any psychopath or sociopath I'd ever read about. I'm glad I read as much as I did, however, because now I wonder how many other facilities out there need to be investigated.
