Review by nicola26
This was only okay! I really did enjoy it at the very beginning- I was drawn into the life of nurse, Dawn, and her hectic life at the hospital. It seemed like it would be interesting enough. The pacing is <i>so bad</i>. The book moved really slow. Lots and lots of description about mundane things instead of actually just letting the story flow. I think Taylor showed a lot of knowledge about the medical world and the hospital certainly seemed realistic but I didn't think the writing was all that impressive. Perhaps I just wasn't paying much attention but I so didn't see the bad guy until I was told! I liked that it wasn't in-your-face obvious from the beginning so there was still some point to reading the book. The ending was good, as was the beginning- the middle was just really lacking in substance.
