This is an oldie and as far as I m concerned, it is also a goodie I enjoyed this I think that calling this a medical thriller is definitely appropriate This book is very very dated with transistor radios, 10 cent pay phones, and a 600 hit job, but it was worth the read The best part for me was the suspense build up It was well done because I couldn t wait to turn the next page I also have to say that it was all quite satisfying regarding the bad guys And I loved the attitude of the female MC She was feisty, so 4 stars for the overall enjoyment factor.

Coma is a medical mystery thriller by Robin Cook It was the initial book that earned him the reputation as a successful author It s a pretty good book A little weird in places And the main character has all the common sense of a doorknob.
Susan is a third year medical student in Boston just starting her first day at Memorial hospital She soon comes into contact with two patients who have inexplicably ended up in Comas For some reason, she immediately becomes obsessed with these Comas and HAS to know what s causing them She discovers that Memorial has had a comparitively large number of these unexplained cases So she starts poking around She skips lectures She skips rounds She bugs the department heads many of whom are misogynistic jerks, and all of whom have a lot of influence She refuses to back down even though she s a STUDENT on t Who knew that I would enjoy a medical thriller This genre is new to me And I recently read a book about a Coma in a totally different genre Anything But Ordinary by my lovely neighbour Lara Avery and when I found this book on my bookshelf my interest of Comas and the mind during Comas it s so fricken mysterious made me pick it up And BOY OH BOY am I glad I did The following may or may not contain spoilers.
Susan Wheeler is a young and beautiful of course medical student who discovers that seemingly healthy young patients who have minor and common surgeries find themselves suddenly into Comas Susan is interested in this mystery but then decides to get seriously involved when a handsome patient who was flirting with her becomes the next Coma victim What she finds in her research and investigations shocks her, and everyone in the hospital tries whatever they can to stop This book takes dirty hospital politics to extreme levels of grotesque absurdity and that s what made it such a fun read Some of the dialogue and character interactions come off as strange and stilted, but the book was written during a different time when politics and social issues were completely different than what we deal with now so that s to be expected to a certain degree It s certainly a bit outdated in some areas, but the main thriller that serves as the center of the plot is still there with enough dread and mystery to leave you excited for the grand reveal Organ harvesting, black markets and controversial medical philosophy abound in this bizarre medical thriller.

☆ Coma ä Download by ß Robin Cook Robin Cook a pseudonym of Robert William Arthur Cook.Dr Robin Cook born May 4, 1940 in New York City, New York is an American doctor novelist who writes about medicine, biotechnology, and topics affecting public health.He is best known for being the author who created the medical thriller genre by combining medical writing with the thriller genre of writing His books have been bestsellers on the New York Times Bestseller List with several at 1 A number of his books have also been featured in Reader s Digest Many were also featured in the Literary Guild Many have been made into motion pictures.Cook is a graduate of Wesleyan University and Columbia University School of Medicine He finished his postgraduate medical training at Harvard that included general surgery and ophthalmology He divides his time between homes in Florida, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts where he lives with his wife Jean He is currently on leave from the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary He has successfully combined medical fact with fiction to produce a succession of bestselling books Cook s medical thrillers are designed, in part, to make the public aware of both the technological possibilities of modern medicine and the ensuing ethical conundrums.Cook got a taste of the larger world when the Cousteau Society recruited him to run its blood gas lab in the South of France while he was in medical school Intrigued by diving, he later called on a connection he made through Jacques Cousteau to become an aquanaut with the US Navy Sealab when he was drafted in the 60 s During his navy career he served on a nuclear submarine for a seventy five day stay underwater where he wrote his first book 1 Cook was a private member of the Woodrow Wilson Center s Board of Trustees, appointed to a six year term by the President George W Bush 2 edit Doctor NovelistDr Cook s profession as a doctor has provided him with ideas and background for many of his novels In each of his novels, he strives to write about the issues at the forefront of current medical practice.To date, he has explored issues such as organ donation, genetic engineering,fertility treatment, medical research funding, managed care, medical malpractice, drug research, drug pricing, specialty hospitals, stem cells, and organ transplantation 3 Dr Cook has been remarked to have an uncanny ability to anticipate national controversy In an interview with Dr.Cook, Stephen McDonald talked to him about his novel Shock Cook admits the timing of Shock was fortuitous I suppose that you could say that it s the most like Coma in that it deals with an issue that everybody seems to be concerned about, he says, I wrote this book to address the stem cell issue, which the public really doesn t know much about Besides entertaining readers, my main goal is to get people interested in some of these issues, because it s the public that ultimately really should decide which way we ought to go in something as that has enormous potential for treating disease and disability but touches up against the ethically problematic abortion issue 4 Keeping his lab coat handy helps him turn our fear of doctors into bestsellers I joke that if my books stop selling, I can always fall back on brain surgery, he says But I am still very interested in being a doctor If I had to do it over again, I would still study medicine I think of myself as a doctor who writes, rather than a writer who happens to be a doctor After 35 books,he has come up with a diagnosis to explain why his medical thrillers remain so popular The main reason is, we all realize we are at risk We re all going to be patients sometime, he says You can write about great white sharks or haunted houses, and you can say I m not going into the ocean or I m not going in haunted houses, but you can t say you re n
