Dr Perera’s Rating:
This is the sequel to The House of God by the same author. The doctor is now in his second-year after graduating medical school and is training in psychiatry. Although this may be an accurate reflection of the practice of psychiatry at the time, it makes for quite depressing reading. Perhaps even more so now with more of a veneer of sophistication. The struggles faced by the psychiatrist in training and the malpractices alluded to are quite disturbing.
