The Children's Hospital is a monster of a book at 600+ pages. The premise is fantastic - God sends another great flood and instead of an ark, the only survivors are afloat in a children's hospital. Interesting and original, right? But the telling of this drug on and on. I think a good editor could have helped make the telling of the story more concise. Even had it been more focused, I still struggled with the end. I expected mind blowingness or something to really make me think. I didn't get either.
I will give it credit though for having one of the best covers of any book I've read. That artwork is perfectly perfect. Too bad for the story inside. 4 stars.
