  15. Harry Kraus has plumbed the depths of the female psyche, making Camille Weller a credible and memorable character in his sopho novel, The Six Liter Club A fresh voice in fiction, Harry doesn t overpower the story with an excess of medical jargon I never felt lost or like I was standing on the outside looking in.His protagonist, Camille, is faced with professional prejudice, both gender and color, and is tired of going along with the boys Making her life complicated are the nightmares and flashb [...]


  16. This book was very slow in the beginning It took me awhile to get through the first 2 3rd of it because I wasn t super invested in the characters or the story However, I am glad I finished it The last 1 3 of it was much better and there were some interesting twists I wasn t expecting I liked how it ended and I loved the themes this author explored, but I just wish the beginning wasn t so slow.


  17. good story female surgeon who challenged the old boys club of surgeons Born to missionary parents, she had flashbacks of horrors related to losing her parents in Africa as a child In solving the origins of her panic attacks with a colleague psychiatrist, she also sorted out her relationships between two men she was seeing Different story from Kraus usual.


  18. This was a very good readThe only thing negative I can say about the book was that it took the Author so long to get to the climax and that once the ride was over it really didn t seem to be that big of a deal to cause all the inner turmoil Camille suffered Definitely had a is that it moment at the end.


  19. The book was an interesting look at life as a black female surgeon in the south in the 80s With some history of war in Africa thrown in SPOILER I knew at about halfway through the book this strong black non believing woman was going to eventually find that she needed Jesus and when it happened, the whole book was a waste.


  20. Kraus is a great storyteller I had no clue such a club existed until I read his book Moreover, I was pleasantly surprised to read a story about a pan african doctor very fascinating story, a must read.


  21. I am sure this is a great story I was put off by its writing when, in the first few pages, the writer says Attending surgeons were known to be forgetful of the little people around them I am a nurse Thank you for belittling my profession Returns book to library after reading 4 pages


  22. This is not my kind of book The story of Dr Weller was nice but I could not finish the book I just could not stand reading about Mark sinxe he was so selfish and had no regards for either Tina or Camille.


  23. This was an interesting mystery as well as an interesting take on what it s like to be the vanguard of a particular discipline It also speaks well about the heart and courage required to demonstrate love, whether for a family member, a stranger, or a calling.


  24. I had high hopes for this book But was greatly disappointed The story line and plot was lacking I didn t like ANY of the characters It was raunchy and the dialog was boring Normally I love medical fictionNormally.




  25. Started out captivating Lagged some in the middle Suspense built to a satisfying conclusion Enjoyable summer read, but not outstanding.


  26. A fast paced, intriguing entertaining medical novel Great mix of excitement, romance, drama even a little bit of spirituality I love it


  27. Very intriguing As a psychology major, loved the emphasis on the effects of the unconsciousness on the main character s life
