I love Hugh Laurie so when I saw that he is in a new show on Hulu this season, I got very excited. I then learned that the TV show "Chance" is based on this book and I thought it would be a good idea to read it before watching the show. Well, this book is not intruiging, suspenseful , or the least bit interesting. It is all over the map and you never really quite figure out what the hell the story is about. Unless they have completely recreated the story for the TV show, I cannot see myself watching it, even with Hugh Laurie.

Kem Nunn’s book is a novel about derivatives of Chance; he suggests chance is an integral part of human’ nature. There is chance in genetics, in living, in parenting, in love, in health, in death. Nunn creates a story about the inadvertent nature of life. The main character of Nunn’s book—wait for it—is Dr. Chance.

Nunn’s characters seem formulaic in the beginning but, as the story unfolds, they become unique. Chance is born into wealth, with intelligent parents that can support him through the expense of a great education. Chance is a spoiled product of an abundant life. In his early career, he falls into an ethical dilemma that nearly destroys his reputation and drives his parents to despair. In mid-life, Chance repeats his mistakes with another ethical dilemma; another broken family.

Here we have a questionably ethical psychiatrist, a highly skilled and intelligent survivalist, a beautiful woman, and a bad cop. What could possibly go wrong? Chance is an entertaining story; expertly narrated by Adam Verner.
