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.
|Everything, Everything||A Madness So Discreet||The Madman’s Daughter|
|Get Well Soon||A Wrinkle in Time (Time Quintet, #1)||Orphan Number Eight|
|The Painted Bridge||Euphoria||The Cure for Dreaming|
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 blog prompt set by the Literary Counsellor with a focus on favourite character types in books. Posting is sporadic, but intended to be every other weekend. Posts might feature one single book, or many different ones. Check HERE for a full list of upcoming topics.
I’ve seen better depictions of thearpists than I have doctors in literature. But maybe that’s because I read mostly about mental health.
