  • Fascinating Medical Mystery

    What an interesting medical mystery. I had never heard about Rh disease, mainly because I don’t have children and it is handled pretty well in the United States now. But it was fascinating and terrifying to learn about, and what is even more tragic is how prevalent it still is in other countries, when something so simple and not dangerous can prevent it. About two-thirds of the book focused more on the science and doctors who were trying to find a cure. It was so well written that even a layperson could understand the more scientific aspects of the journey, which I greatly appreciated. You could feel the doctors’ frustration when fellow doctors wouldn’t take their ideas seriously or they could not find funding for their cause. I felt vindicated when Dr. Gorman had his breakthrough and I can only imagine how wonderful he felt. Throughout the book we get peeks into James Harrison’s life and his amazing feat of some many blood donations, at one point being put in the Guinness Book of World Records. This added another layer to the story, showing more of the emotional or human side, and was a great way to encourage readers to donate blood. If you enjoyed The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks or like medical mysteries and advancements, you will definitely want to read Good Blood by Julian Guthrie.

    Thanks for your feedback!
