  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 6/18/2011

    " This book was a pleasant surprise. I picked it up off the bargain rack for $1.99. It was a good summer read! Had a couple of twists/turns I didn't expect. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharon | 6/5/2011

    " This should bring on some interesting discussion in book club. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie Maxine | 5/30/2011

    " Compares well to other medical mysteries, because the mystery takes a back seat to character and relationship development. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynn | 5/30/2011

    " Excellent book! Not only an interesting story, it is quite an indictment about our medical community in general - how they would hang someone out to dry just to try to save themselves.

    "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vilo | 5/29/2011

    " A provocative look at medicine, through the eyes of a dedicated doctor who realizes how vulnerable we all are. It's part mystery, part novel, a lot of ethical exploration. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sorayya | 5/27/2011

    " Oxygen is gripping, a hard to put down page turner about the medical system, struggling doctors, lousy health care and the narratives of those who are immersed in medicine. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beth | 5/20/2011

    " A little bit mystery novelish for me, but I enjoyed it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sue | 5/20/2011

    " This novel about a competent and successful anesthesiologist who is wrongly accused of the death of a child during surgery. Although it was well written, the story moved rather slowly until the end and then it seemed to end abruptly. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cathy | 5/17/2011

    " Good story and then a twist - book discussion gem you might have missed? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kyote4me | 5/15/2011

    " The main story--a child dies on the OR table and the anesthesiologist is blamed--would make a very good 50 page novella. Unfortunately the author throws in 225 pages of filler about the anesthesiologist personal and family life that only distracted from the real and very interesting story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laurie | 5/12/2011

    " I had it figured out from the beginning, but it was still a good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 5/9/2011

    " This was interesting - not the type of book I usually read, but it was nice for a change. It's kind of a romantic drama and certainly a quick read. "
