Book Review: Disaster Status
This book didn’t even make it to my “to be read” pile. It came straight from the bubble wrap and into my hot little hands.
What a novel! Medical dramas, can’t even compare to DISASTER STATUS. I had the distinct feeling of standing in the middle of a trauma ward as everyone rushed around me. You don’t have to understand medical terms to know what is going on. But this book wasn’t just medical disasters, it was a love story and a story of life outside of trauma that made it jump to life.
There was a very real sense of immediacy throughout the entire novel. I felt like I was there and found it nearly impossible to stop reading. Making this probably the fastest book I have ever read, in just under 6 hours.
The characters were unique, coming alive on the page. I saw their growth. I cheered and I groaned. There was intrigue and action. Drama and love, but not the sappy inappropriate soap opera kind, the kind that makes you stand up and cheer or curl your toes in anxiety.
I can no longer watch medical dramas on TV. Only give me DISASTER STATUS and plenty of time to read!
