Star Surgeon - James White

I had hoped for some interesting medical mysteries, and instead I got a book that was basically a message about war. Definitely not subtle, although it fit in perfectly with Sector General's origins.

 

I'll probably give it 3 stars for the overall story, although if I focused just on the stuff to do with women (which means mostly Murchison) I'd give it 1.5 stars. 1) I don't think there was a single mention of Murchison in this book that didn't bring up the effect her beauty had on human males, or how nice her curves looked. 2) Men can handle having multiple completely alien minds in their heads, but apparently women experience horrible mental damage if they try to do the same thing. Right...

 

And oh look, it's a Booklikes-opoly Roll Day!
