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!

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.

Wow, how did I miss this book. For Medical Thriller Mystery fans this book is an original scary, who done it. It is a total page turner with elements of Robin Cook, Tess Gerritson and even F. Paul Wilson.
The story takes place at Southside medical school where for the past six years there has been a suicide and the most recent one seems to have been murder. There is a cast of very interesting characters which include 5 anatomy students: Rachel, the hard working competent strong one, Abe, the geek with a dark secret, Lauren the not quite smart enough one who needs to make sure she passes, Ginny, the impossibly hard working one, who wants to get the highest marks on everything, and Mason, who is the handsome spoiled rich guy. There is also the anatomy professor, Dr. Conlon, who has conveniently been at the medical school six years since the suicides began. There are also a host of extremely interesting side characters, some of which are so amazing there should be more on them.
The plot looms on the prospect of a seventh suicide/murder at the end of this year and who will be the victim and who is the murderer. Does someone at the medical school have a reason to commit murder and can they stop him in time. I could not put this book down. Parts of it were so surprising and unforgettable it was just like nothing I have ever read. You will not be disappointed.

I am always amazed at how quickly the pages fly by in Frieda McFadden's books. This is a well crafted semi mystery of murder, love and madness set in the first year of medical school. The characters are developed such that I had to feel for them. A big plus for me was the peek into the academics. I highly recommend this book for those who like medical stories, mysteries and character driven plots

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.

I loved this one even more than "The Devil Wears Scrubs"! Normally I read my mysteries from the end to the beginning, but this one was so good I didn't want to stop reading to skip to the end. It's also pretty funny in parts, and I could identify with all of the characters at different times, I'm sure most people could, especially people who went to medical school. Non medical people would also enjoy this book, there's not a lot of medical jargon (although for the MS1s there are a bunch of good anatomy mneumonics so it counts as studying ;-)) and the theme of "hey, I don't want to die" is not one unique to medicine, I would imagine.

Overall, a great read. Compelling, interesting, unique, refreshing, AND humorous!

I was hopeful this story would keep me on the edge of the seat. It was interesting but left me wanting suspense driven, the disjointed aspects prevailed. Good effort though.

Fantastic novel featuring a whole host of interesting surprises, twists, and "Oh wow, I didn't see THAT coming" intrigue! I went into the book not having read any of the reviews, so it was a surprise to get to part 2, from the eyes of a different narrator. I wasn't sure how I was going to enjoy that--I'm not a huge fan of books where the perspective switches back and forth between two main characters--but this wasn't like that. It was a rewind of the story from an entirely different point of view, covering things that happened during Part 1 with a few extra added details.

Very well-written, and kept at just the right level of scientific terminology to keep us firmly in the anatomy lab setting without going overboard, this book delivered thrills and a surprising depth of emotion. Totally recommended--and I can't wait to check out the author's other books!
