Synopsis

The first time R.J. defies her beloved father is when she is born a female; the second, when she opts to study law rather than medicine. Yet destiny is to overtake her when, for the first time, R.J. Cole realises that she has inherited The Gift. Holding the hand of a sick man, R.J. feels a dreadful certainty that he is going to die; tragically, the patient is no stranger but her own lover. Struggling with her grief, R.J. knows she must bow to the inevitable, and become a doctor. At first she combines her new talent with her legal work on cases where medical advice is needed, and her diagnostic skill combined with The Gift make her an invaluable consultant. But her life changes when she moves to a small town practice and is faced with a terrible dilemma - and an important choice to make... -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch.

Unfortunately, most of the people writing the other reviews missed the point of the book, or did not comprehend the full meaning of this book. It is very well written and keeps your interest at all times. It is many things all coming together to a beautiful ending. I can not imagine what more anyone would want in a book. The more-than-adequate development of the characters made for easy reading. Frankly, I found this to be the perfect ending for two such strong prior books as "The Physician" and "Shaman".
Anyone that enjoys the wonderful writing of Noah Gordon will also love this book. Don't be midled by the less than glowing reviews of other readers. I very nearly did not read this book because of the reviews. I'm so very glad I read the book and made up my own mind as to its value. I found it very entertaining and so glad I got to know Dr. R.J. Cole. Try it - you'll like it.

After reading the physician, the rabbi and Shaman, I felt like Noah Gordon couldn't surprise me anymore. Those were such great books. So, when I heard that there was a new book, completing the trilogy of the Cole's saga, I thought it would be some repetition from the other. I was shocked to realize he did even better this time. The book doesn't only speak of the "gift", but it tells the drama of a woman touched by it, and by several tragedies on her life, that changes her world upside down, finding new challenges,and new tragedies, and overcoming them all. It's a heart-touching story, that makes the reader think over some thing in his own life, and start giving life and its simple and small pleasures its true value. It's a "must" to read, for anyone who liked his first books, or not

The Cole Family story draws to a close and this time its not a he but a she who is the main chatacter. JD Cole shows all the compassion for medicine and caring for patients that has been passed down through the ages from the very first book.

Brilliant..No more need to be said.

Recommended all round

It was asking too much to keep up that incredible depth and breadth of the previous books in the series so I am not complaining. I enjoyed the read and recommend it with just a notch less so your expectations won't spoil it for you.

As a European, I might also care less about the well researched part of the US American health care(less) system. Having lived on 2 continents, experiencing health care in 4 different countries (2 on each side of the pond), I have to really try hard not to ridicule the American system - Americans as a whole deserve better and should be able to find a better solution that benefits everyone. And this sentiment is one central theme here in the book and implicitly showing the solution: less profit, more care.

I love the way Gordon draws his characters and shows their development - so I will go and pick up all other books by him just to enjoy that again.

I was forewarned that Matters of Choice was of lesser stature than the first two epics of the trilogy. The disappointment was that it wasn't and epic like the first two. Now sweeping history of the time and culture. Perhaps because it was so contemporary, Mr Gordon thought he could foregoe the historical development and character development so central in the first two volume. He was wrong if that is true.
He allows himself the freedom of not being constrained by history and he actually begins to almost preach on certain subjects. He is obviously disappointed by the failure of HMO's, the failure to pass universal healthcare, the real physical pitfalls of abortion as well as the real social threats involved. He wants it all to work out.
As a physician, to me the book played like a three cord song instead of the symphonies of his other work. HE clearly is some one I would love to talk to though.
Matters is clearly worth reading. Its much better than most of these reviewers allow. It shouldn't be downgraded simply because it falls short of what people expected. If you read the first two parts of the trilogy, then you owe it to yourself to finish the circle and read Matters.
I would have given it four stars except for the ove abundance of liberal rhetoric that he should have worked out better before writing the story. Instead he gnaws on the failures of his beliefs in the book and one grows weary.

I own and have reread Physician and Shaman several times, and fully expected another great read in the series. Instead, all the right ingredients appeared to suborn themselves to a politically correct agenda. Each of the first two novels left me with a profound feeling of satisfaction and respect for a wonderful tale, well told. Matters of Choice seems to go nowhere, portraying episodes in sequence while merely reflecting current social unrest and dwindling off to a very unsatisfactory conclusion.
