    While the concept of iDoc is very intriguing, this novel belongs in the literary ICU The main character is hopelessly naive throughout the whole story, does predictably foolish things, doesn t realize he s being played by the charge nurse who is pumping him for information, yet we are supposed to believe he had the whole thing figured out in the end Why would he even return to Paula s if he knew what might happen Ridiculous And where is his outrage at the murder of his fianc It s like he d Wh

    This book sort of sneaked snuck oh well up on me I had started The Ark but had laid it aside for a day I picked this one up they re both library books and out for the same amount of time I found myself interested in Cell and finished it before I went back to the other book.Sowhat ve we got here Why the future And I mean that I suspect we may not be far from the scenario we see in this novel In some ways the way the book effects you may depend at least a little on your age T This book sort of sneaked snuck

    What an embarrassment When I think of the early works of Robin Cook like Coma and Outbreak, it is difficult to believe this novel was written by the same person The concept was intriguing, but the writing was sophomoric at best, the characters cartoonish, the conversations stilted, and the book in need of an editor the character scoffed his food rather than scarfed although, if the food was REALLY bad, I guess he could have scoffed at it There were SO many exclamation points What an embarrassment When I think of

    I can t quite give this the 5th star, because of the ending Cook writes a compelling story centered around the use of Smartphones as a futuristic replacement for Primary Care Physicians The concept, with all it s benefits and potential drawbacks are clearly defined It s one of the drawbacks that becomes the central theme to this story and w...

    The promising plot got washed out by inelegant writing The concept of an app on your phone that could monitor your health and make proactive suggestions is fascinating, as is the thought of the potential abuses and glitches that could occur Unfortunately, I put things together a lotquickly than the protagonist The story plodded along with obvious pauses to define unfamiliar concepts by way of conversations between the characters Obamacare and HIPPA were jammed in with alarming freque The promising plot got washed out by inelegant writing The conce

    I find Cook s characters to be annoyingly self righteous and a bit fanatical The medical part is always very interesting, which saves the book the characters are flat and seem to lack social skills Conversations are awkward events are contrived Whether I agree or not, Cook seems to be too ...
