Carol Topolski s first novel was called Monster Love It was extraordinary Dark Disturbing Flawed But still extraordinary And when I saw Do No Harm her second novel I
torn I was intrigued but I was also a ittle scared In the end of I had to pick it up I found a very different book but THOSE FOUR WORDS STILL APPLIED DARK DISTURBING FLAWED EXTRAORDINARY four words still applied Dark Disturbing Flawed Extraordinary No Harm is the story of a doctor Virginia Denham is a doctor at the very top of her profession she is a consultant in obstetrics and gynaecology in a big London hospital Her patients were reassured by her interest and understanding and by her professionalism Her colleagues and her staff were eually impressed by her professionalism and by her intelligence and skill But she had a secret An Excellent conceited Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet life and she guarded her privacy ferociously A stunning opening chapter revealed a model professional and a deeply flawed and disturbed woman An accident waiting to happen The chapters that followed moved backwards and forwards through time to build a detailed picture of Virginia s difficultife She was an extraordinary character complex and frighteningly real I wanted to understand that character to know what made her and the suspense was palpable In the end something did go wrong And it was devastating I m deliberately holding back details Because this is a novel driven by characters rather than plot And to tell any than I have would I think be telling too much A disturbing story of a consultant in obstetrics and gynaecology is not for everyone and I half wished that I hadn t picked it up The writing the characterisation the suspense so much in this book was brilliant I had to keep reading I had to know I just felt that the balance was a Ruhestand fr Einsteiger little off the balance of plot and character A flaw but not a fatal flaw Because I really can t think of another author who deals with such difficult subject matter with such insight and intelligence And now I am torn between pushing such dark books away and wondering what Carol Topolski will write next Having not read Topolskis first novel Monster Love I had no expectationsIike a good Everyone knows about Virginia about her stellar reput. .was torn I was but I was also a ittle scared In the end of
Age turner though and that s what the blurb on the back promisedNo such uck unfortunately I had to wade through the ong drawn out first half the bookA very very promisedNo such uck unfortunately I had to wade through the Random House Webster's College Dictionary: 1996 Graduation Promotion long out first half of the bookA very very build up to the actual storyIt gathers up some speed towards the end but the end is predictable and disappointing A few medical mistakes a woman heavily inabour in the third stage springs to m Virginia is an excellent gynaecologist but has a dark past which affects her interrelationships Her past comes back to haunt her when she discovers her mother s secret a discovery that tips her over the edge Thrilling read with Making Mentoring Happen A simple and effective guide to implementing a successful mentoring program lots of elements including medical harm SM and self harming A compelling and intriguing story but aittle too Panda Bears leisurely in its execution A common fault in most moderniterary fiction I feel Readers attracted by the blurb as I was may be disappointed to find that the narrative drive only really gets going well beyond the halfway point after pages and pages of very well written but ultimately superfluous character background and scene setting We are introduced often in considerable detail to characters or events which serve no real purpose within the story and while this allows us to admire Topolski s undoubted skill and imagination I found it immensely distracting as a reader Also I kept tripping over multiple anachronisms in the period setting Perhaps I m being pedantic but I found this evocation of the 1940s and the 1970s the two eras in which the book is set far from convincing Perhaps the most significant stumbling point is the fact that surgical Turning Points in Australian History laparoscopy a key element in the book s denouement was almost unheard of in ordinary British hospitals until well into the 1980s But there are many other such niggling inconsistences each one a comparatively minor detail but with an annoying habit of getting in the way of suspension of disbelief in the story Plodding and was uite a chore to get through as it didn t really hold my attention I m glad I read Monster Lovefirst because I don t think I would have read it after this one This book has a great storyine with solid engaging charac. Ation as a gynaecologist; about her commitment to her.
