by Jed Mercurio
Inside every hospital exists a world no outsider has been allowed to see Written by a former doctor, Bodies is a novel of almost unbearable power and intensity.
It is also a moving portrait of the loss of innocence, the healing power of sexual love, and of a young man's quest for redemption in a world that's lost its sense of right and wrong.
Jed Mercurio, the man behind the television series Cardiac Arrest, has produced an even more disturbingly authentic dispatch from the frontline of hospital life.

Review by Fluffyblue
This book really opened my eyes to hospital life for a doctor. It seems to be a fairly honest account of life in a hospital from a doctor's perspective, and what it's like when mistakes happen. It was turned into a series by the BBC which I thought was also very good.
