Life Support ? Tess Gerritsen
« on: May 28, 2007, 08:25:48 AM »
First time I?ve come across this writer ? apparently she has some medical training and bases her books on operating theatres, ER rooms, etc.

Anyway, not a bad page turner about a doctor in an ER room  (see told you) that discovers a series of inexplicable deaths and tries to work out what is behind them.

Not exactly gripping stuff but worth a read ? another book let down by an apparent need to get the ending over and done with quickly.

I wouldn?t jump on Amazon and order everything she?s written but I?d pick up another of her books if I saw it on a stand.

Recommended ? if you like medical/mystery type things.

I tend to rely more on Bruce Willis turning up these days.
I used to have a handle on life but it broke.

Shhh Darwin, you'll give away their secret. After 7 days they are so curled that they can be repackaged as a sausage roll  drumroll:
Some days I think the only thing keeping me from becoming homicidal is that the voices can't agree on which weapon would be the most fun.

Not the Nine o'clock News  redface:


Quote from: Blackadder Series 2 Episode 3
Melchett: [bowing] You are every jolly jacktar’s dream, Majesty.

Queen: I thought as much. If he’s really gorgeous, I’m thinking
of marrying him.

Blackadder: Ma’am, is that not a little rash?

Queen: I don’t think so.

Nursie: It wouldn’t be your first little rash if it was.

[The whistle sounds again and Sir Walter enters
with a flourish and bows deeply and elaborately.
They all applaud him for his feats. Sir Walter
is played by Simon Jones, of “Arthur Dent” fame.
As if I have to tell you]

Sir Walter: Majesty! [he sings out]

Queen: Splice me timbers, Sir Walter, it’s bucko to see you,
old matey!

Sir Walter: I’m sorry?

Blackadder: [caustically] She says hello.

Sir Walter: And well she might, for I have bought her gifts and
dominions beyond her wildest dreams [taking off his
hat and bowing with a flourish again]

Queen: Are you sure? I have some pretty wild dreams, you know…
I’m not sure what they mean, but the other day there was
this enormous tree, and I was sitting right on top of it-

Melchett: [warningly] Ma’am

Queen: And then I dreamt once that I was a sausage roll-


Melchett: Majesty-

Queen: Sorry! So excited! Don’t know what I’m saying. Oh- come on,
Sir Walter, I want to hear about absolutely everything!

Sir Walter: [launches into storytelling mode] Then, prepare to hear
tales of terrible hardship, endurance and woe. [All settle]
We set sail from Plymouth in the spring of 1552 [Edmund
yawns quite audibly]

Queen: [disparagingly] You remember Lord Blackadder…
I mostly despair
