Dr. Trout writes about what he knows and his stories reflect that knowledge. He makes me care about a socially awkward pathologist who comes home to take over the veterinary practice his father started and that has struggled to survive since his father's death. It turns out Cyrus has the makings of an excellent vet because he is very good at seeing the symptoms of his patients and together with his clinical knowledge of disease he is able to treat even the most difficult cases.
Of course there is much more to the book that kept me reading into the wee hours: the big chain veterinary clinic that has computerized treatment and is gobbling up the smaller independent vets, confusing signals from the attractive waitress, the sickly stranger who asks Cyrus to give him drugs for euthanasia, the teenage hacker who signs up Cyrus for a date with his girlfriend's mother and the list goes on.
If you're looking for a good book, look no further. This one is sure to satisfy.
It almost reminds me of a veterinary version of Dr House.
