Coma by Robin Cook

Coma by Robin Cook

This book starts out slow, but ramps up to full of action before too long. About two-thirds of the way through I started wondering about one character. About a chapter before all was revealed, I was sure that character was the bad guy. I found the main character to be pretty annoying. I just didn’t care for or about her about half the time. It’s quite interesting, though, that Coma was published before I was born and yet the story still stands as something that could happen or be happening. The only dated part is the extreme attitudes toward female medical students and doctors. And, of course, the lack of cell phones. Otherwise, it’s easy to forget the book was written almost 45 years ago. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys medical thrillers.
