My mom read this book to me when I was 12--way too old to be lying in bed listening to stories...but oh, these special stories. I decided to chose this book as the first present to give my sweet husband back when we first started dating.
This is a pretty well-written medical thriller, one of Crichton's first books (1968). Other than the fun medical jargon (think "ER") and breathless action, it was interesting to read for its (hopefully outdated) perspectives on abortion (still illegal at the time), racism, and other issues.
