Get off my back.

Save me from writers with hurt feelings. This is a blog, not Library Journal. If you don't like how I critique a book, that's ok, we can talk about it; vicious email attacks, however, are not appreciated. Being anonymous makes it hard to have a dialogue. What, chicken? If you don't like it, try writing better next time. To everyone else, sorry for the delay. Intern: A Doctor's Initiation, by Sandeep Jauhar. The author claims this book is supposed to bolster other aspiring doctors through the tough years of medical school and internship; it may do that, but mostly it made me afraid to go to the hospital in the summer. The writing is very good, although the author does jump around a little, so it's not always clear when events are happening-- he throws a case from med school into the middle of his second year, but it's not clear where it ends and the present-day stuff picks up again. Final verdict: not bad, but not something I'm likely to read again.
