Publisher's Summary

Imagine. You have cancer. You’ve been blasted and wasted with chemotherapy, along with every other poison the doctors could find to kill malignant cells. Most days you’re more dead than alive. Now there is one last chance for survival. Tomorrow you will be infused with your own, treated bone marrow frozen, stored, and safe in one of California’s most prestigious hospitals. Then comes the note: “We have your marrow.... pay or die.”

Not bad, not great, it was OK"

What did you like best about Bone Dry? What did you like least?

Like: Gina is from the Bronx.

Dislike:The character of Faye, whining over and over again was excruciatingly painful to endure. I wanted to smack her around too. Instead, I fast forwarded it. Actually, ALL the female characters whined and whined in conversations. Frankie PLEEEEAAASE, Tony PLEEEEAAASE, PLEEEEAAASE Mr. Capello over and over again. As a nurse of 40+ years, I find her nursing interactions with patients and families inappropriate many times. Constantly saying she knew how they felt is a turn off.The entire staff calling "the kid" a brat to his face, unprofessional! Spilling Blood in the lab more than once ???? Yeah, right. Being told to lie to a patient? NEVER


What does Beth Richmond bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Very good despite having to whine over & over (as the characters)

Really poor choice!

The book itself is one weary repetition after another. I had to double check that I was not listening to the same chapter over and over. And the characters are irritating, especially as portrayed by the reader. Women whine and whimper and behave as though they are helpless at all times. Violence and cursing are used to cover up a weak plot. I do not recommend you waste your time or your money on this massively disappointing book.
