Robin Cook's novel, Cell
|by Pavalamani Pragasam|
Just now I finished reading Robin Cook, the master of medical thriller’s novel, “Cell”. A happy, satisfying fare as usual. The last 2 pages containing the epilogue was especially satisfying with its poetic justice and settled my nagging uneasiness about the plot’s course! A veritable feast for all lovers of Cook’s novels.
The story deals with how this unbelievably good device can be manipulated by parties with vested interest by becoming a death panel to terminally ill patients. The argument is to ration medical care in the last months of life. There is infinite demand for health care which only people with power and money can afford.
P.S. As usual reading about western countries' lifestyles unfailing gave me the cultural shock and I get nauseated by their concepts about sex and marriage!
