    This book will knock you off of your feet. . .

    Trauma is an intense book. It thoroughly grips you and refuses to loosen up on it's hold, long after you complete the book. The book is only 210 pages in length, but the pages are written so well that it is impossible to feel cheated. I don't want to give away plot details, so I'll just end by saying that everyone should read this book. It is well worth your time and money.

    Trauma Rocks

    This is the second book I've read of Patrick McGrath's, and I admit I was a little worried that it might be similar to Asylum, since the narrators have the same occupation; I worried for nothing. McGrath's talent for constructing complicated, damaged, and completely human characters satisfies, and is always original.

    My attention span is notoriously short, and I'm so impatient, and McGrath's writing style engrossed me. Unlike other books, even some of the really good ones, there wasn't pages upon pages of description (no one needs two pages describing how snowy/dark/etc. a setting is). McGrath's Trauma will suck you in. I didn't put it down all night.

    A very dark drama

    I never could predict what would happen next. It started off slow but created so many questions that you had to read to the end. The story was very dark and intense. Not recommended for light reading.
