A tense thriller, " Unfortunate Event" explores the dark side of operating room culture, the cutthroat world of malpractice law, and the mind of one man as his world crumbles around him. Four Boundless Stars
Let start off by saying it did not take me long to get into this book. The first few chapters were full of medical talk and so at times it was a bit hard to understand, but you get the point. I loved Jack. To me he seemed like a great doctor and seemed tough. He finds himself in a hard situation and the story follows this path. His wife Kate though was one of those characters that is easy to hate. She was just mean and vindictive throughout and I just did not like her. The ending was kind of empty. I don't know if this is supposed to be a stand alone or if it is supposed to have a sequel. The ending seemed like it could be both. Overall, this story was written well and kept me completely enthralled.
