Medical errors make the story less believable
Reviewed in the United States on August 22, 2018
In terms of enjoyable fiction, and the reading of the Audible book, I really enjoyed this novel.
as an ophthalmologist I am having to maintain a rather significant suspension of disbelief. There is no indication that Sam's ocular albinism affects his vision in any way - he apparently sees well enough to be an ophthalmologist, which is a highly unlikely event. This means that the novel deals with the social effects of someone who has red eyes, but not the reality of living with a disease which would certainly affect the patient's light sensitivity, vision and visual experiences.
To add insult to injury, the description of leaving a patient with a retinal detachment for a couple of weeks, when she should have surgery the same day, again demonstrates the lack of a knowledgeable medical advisor.
These factual errors don't ruin the story, but they did make it less believable and enjoyable for me.
