A review by dor
A Case of Need by Michael Crichton, Jeffery Hudson

  • Plot- or character-driven? Character


Medical Thriller that has the same fingerprints as Airframe and Rising Sun - pacey, readable, and a real slice of 1968 including some extremely racist language and attitudes. However, these feel like a representation of the time, and also feel like the MC does not share them (although he is not an anti-racist either). Would be an interesting film adaptation.
