I came about Wishlist Wednesday hosted by the ever so lovely Pen to Paper. (Please check out their blog, it’s awesome).
Wishlist Wednesday is a meme that allows you to turn the spotlight on a few books that have been sitting on your get-to-eventually list for a while. Books that you dream of claiming their rightful spots on your bookshelf.
This week while browsing Goodreads I stumbled upon A Case of Need by Michael Crichton.
A Case of Need is Michael Crichton’s award-winning debut novel, written shortly after he completed his medical internship. Set against the ever-building pressure and pace of a large Boston medical center, the tensions flare-and explode-when a surgical operation tragically ends in death, raising countless questions. Was it accidental malpractice? A violation of the Hippocratic oath? Or cold-blooded murder?
I must be on a serious science fiction kick because lately all these books look SO good! I’ve been a fan of Michael Crichton for a while ever since I read Jurrassic Park. He has this unique way of combining scientific facts into a compelling story, and coming from me that’s saying something. Science fiction was never my favorite subject, far from it actually, but Michael Crichton gives me a new appreciation on the subject.
I’ve never read a novel set against a medical backdrop before, I’ve always been intimidated by them. But the fact that Michael Crichton wrote it is enough for me. So today’s Wishlist Wednesday is more about the author instead of the title.
Have you ever read this novel? What did you think? What are you wishing for this Wednesday? Comment below and happy reading!
