Book much much better
15 November 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I finished the book last night. It was tremendous. I have seen the movie. It is totally different. In the book, set in rural Vermont, married doctor's Angela and David, with their sick daughter Nikki, find themselves ostracized from the community, their colleagues, the hospital that employs them after discovering that something is killing patients in the hospital. It does involve the insurance company etc. I find it odd that not one of the movie's characters shares a name with the book's characters. Read the book, steer clear of the movie. Joanna Kerns is at her telemovie best of course, the supporting cast show enough life to make it believable, though I am not sure hysterics were in the correct places.
