Tough at times to read during our own pandemic, but absolutely brilliant. This book made me want to gobble up all 700 and whatever pages in a single sitting. I loved each character and loved hating some of them too.
Absolutely fascinating. Both the man (Joseph Lister) and the writing are brilliant and clever. Dr. Fitzharris writes like she were there, with all the gore and gross detail to really undermine just how f@cked surgery was drying the 1800‘s.
Lister saved us all.
