Book Description

There’s a reason Southside Medical School has been nicknamed “Suicide Med.” For the last six years, every year one student has taken his own life.

Except for last year. Last year was a murder-suicide.

The press has pointed to the heavy workload as the culprit in the high suicide rate. Some students believe that the school is cursed. And others believe that the deaths may not be suicides at all—that it’s no coincidence that Dr. Conlon, Southside’s quirky but beloved anatomy professor, joined the staff on the very year that the suicides began.

Either way, the same question echoes through the minds of every first year student at Suicide Med:

Who will be next to die?

After reading Freida McFadden's first book, "The Devil Wears Scrubs," I couldn't wait to get my hands on "Suicide Med." While this book has a very different premise than the first, McFadden's wit and conversational style remains. It was a quick and enjoyable read with a lot of laughs and suspense along the way.

It's hard to describe this book because it is so different from any other book I've ever read. It has a little bit of everything from mystery to romantic comedy to sci fi to suspense. It can be very dark in places, which I love. The plot and characters were well-developed and interesting.

The story revolves around a gross anatomy lab group at medical school and their often bizarre and stressful individual experiences getting through the first semester. At times, it seems like each of them might be the student who dies this year, but which student will really crack under the pressure?

I highly recommend this book. It's truly a unique experience worthy of your attention.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read July 7, 2014
By RugbyJC
Format:Kindle Edition
After enjoying McFadden's first book, I decided to give this one a try, and I am happy I did. Definitely more intense and suspenseful and not quite like anything I had read before. I had a hard time putting it down and really enjoyed the well-developed plot. I hope she continues to produce works like this. A must read for anyone who likes medical based novels--a mixture of thrills and romance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another terrific story from Freida McFadden July 20, 2014
By Jono
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Suicide Med is the story of anatomy lab partners in medical school and the intensity of their lives. How they cope, or not, with the stress of medical school takes form in many ways from the humorous to the sinister.
Having lived with some med students at this time of their lives I can tell you that these characters are not far from the reality that I observed. Freida McFadden tells the story from each students viewpoint and weaves them together in such a way that I found it difficult to stop reading. If you are looking for an entertaining book that is different from what you usually read, this is a fun (but chilling) one to read.

This is the story of five medical students and their anatomy professor in a first year medical school anatomy course. There's Heather, the pop song-singing girl in a long distance relationship who is paranoid about failing. Then there's Mason, a charming fellow from a privileged background who studies endlessly to get the best grades until he begins to lose it. Abe, the gentle giant with a deep secret. Rachel, the feminist who doesn't seem interested in studying or making friends with people her own age. Ginny, the quiet, studious one you'd never suspect of anything. And Dr. Conlon, the dorky, disabled anatomy professor who is rumored to be the cause of the Suicide Med Curse.

The story is told from each character's perspective in turn. Heather was first. I was drawn in by her story because it brought back memories of first year anatomy lab, and Heather's experience was very similar to my own. Her story was mostly lighthearted and made me laugh. As the story moves on, McFadden perfectly captures the essence of dramatic irony, and I felt a sinking feeling realizing how the characters' assumptions were horribly wrong.

The book was well written and unlike anything else I've ever read. It's a bit longer than McFadden's first book, and well worth a purchase!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book about the first year of med school September 6, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved this. It brought back memories of anatomy lab, although ours was in a building separate from the hospital. I really enjoyed the change in backstory and POV when different characters in the story took over and progressed to the same pivotal point in the narrative. Each character had a distinct voice and a couple of them redefined the term "gunner" (the term is in the story and is defined there so I won't do it here). I'm reasonably sure the "gunners" in my class did not quite go to the lengths some of these did, but it made very interesting reading. I also found it interesting that although none of the characters identify themselves by that term, they certainly meet the criteria. I enjoyed this thoroughly partially because of the ability of the author to take me back to med school. My memories of anatomy are much better than the characters in this book, thankfully. I may or may not read The Devil Wore Scrubs (this author's other book) since it deals with experiences with surgical residents (or a surgical resident) and my memories of those encounters are not all that pleasant, as I gather from the title, description and reviews of The Devil Wore Scrubs, the author's also were not exactly the highlight of her career.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another fun read from Freida McFadden August 12, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
McFadden's new novel has that same "unputdownable" quality as her first. I found it a little more difficult to identify with the characters (even as a med student myself), and so even though I couldn't stop reading, I didn't particularly *like* them. The style of writing - from numerous characters' perspectives - was enjoyable, and added layers of complexity and nuance to the storyline. I thought some of the plot twists were a bit far-fetched, but it has made me look up a few things, so perhaps I can pretend that it was a worthy distraction from study! Despite some of the negatives I've stated here, Suicide Med was a fun read, and I'll definitely look out for more of Dr McFadden's novels in the future.
