    TOTALLY AWSOME!!!!

    This book is super interesting and very catchy,I couldn't put it down the entire time I was reading it.Basically the book is about a female med student(Susan Wheeler) who uncovers a terrible injustice and,while making a few 'friends',does her best to try to stop it.the only bad part is I couldn't find a sequel.

    Just like all other Robin Cooks books: Fantastic!

    Iam a forteen year old high school student and I borrowed this book from my public library. The whole time I couldn't put it down. With in the story a black market place for intensive care paitents. No one has uncovered it before before third year medical student finds out and is terrified. Read it for yourself.

    a reviewer

    WOW! An absolutly wonderful book that anyone interested in medical 'stuff' should read. It's about med-student Susan Wheeler who goes too far into a large case of comatose patients. When a 'friend' of hers went in for a minor knee surgery and came out in a vegitative state she found out something was wrong, very wrong... Continue to read the rest about Susan Wheeler and her odd findings! If you have any questions or comments about the book. Feel free to E-Mail me! I am open to anything! Hope you are convinced to read this book!

    Hold on for a ride...

    This book was the first I have read from Robin Cook, and he got me hooked. Excellent suspense which kept me constantly reading. The whole concept of the big secret in the book is a little far fetched, but none the less one of the best I've read.

    Brain Indulger

    The moment I opened up this book, I was hypnotized. I read it everywhere I could. If you're into suspense, horror, and jaw-dropping details, this book is for you!! Read the book before you yourself fall into a coma...

    A big fan of the medical thriller

    A must read for any medical thriller fan. Coma is one of the best books I've ever read. Easy to understand and hard to put down. Robin Cook is a true master at what he does.

    AAARGH!!!

    This book had no ending!!! I don't think that any book that has no ending should be considered all that great. What happened to the main characters? Perhaps the author forgot to include the final chapter, or it just got lost at the printer. For a good read look up Keith Ablow's books.

    The template for what medical thrillers should be!!

    This is by far one of the greatest books I have ever read. I could not put it down. It kept me on the edge of my seat.
