Brier Hospital Series: Arnie Roth, a family practitioner, develops viral encephalitis. He awakens from the near-death experience with a new appreciation for life and an unexpected talent, his sensitivity to smell has increased a thousandfold. The Sixth Sense is highly entertaining, thought provoking, and touching journey through a world that influences us every day, but one that we know too little about.
This was a great novel, unlike anything I have ever read before. I love books about medicine. Medicine is fascinating, and Dr. Lawrence W. Gold has brought a whole new aspect to it.
The story captured me from the very beginning, there were a lot of characters, but the development was strong, which made it very easy for follow along.
There was a lot of medical terminology which I eat up, but there was a twist to this one. The main character, Arnie is a MD who develops a viral infection and nearly dies, though when he wakes up he has super human smelling...seems cool right? It totally does until you read the story and become aware of what it would really do to you, you feel sympathy for Arnie and his family.
A book of a lot of twists and turns, this one will pull you in and not let you go!
I can't wait to read some of Dr. Gold's other novels.
