Bookish ABC: D is for Doctor

After looking through the books I have read, I have to say that doctors really don’t get a good reputation in literature. Very few of them are considered nice, sane, or particularly helpful. This list is obviously skewed by my interest in psychology, so I hope that anyone who comments will be able to provide some more positive depictions of doctors.

Do you have a favourite book that features a doctor? Tell me what it is so I can check it out!


The Bookish ABC is a bi-weekly challenge set by the Literary Counsellor to explore the different character tropes that show up in many books. Every other Sunday is a new post, which might feature one single book, or many different ones. Check HERE for a full list of upcoming topics.
