Reviews - What do customers think about The Chairman?
An enjoyable read with an important message Aug 14, 2001
Dr. Kraus knows how to keep his readers turning the pages with an intriguing plot and interesting characters. But more than a spellbinding read, The Chairman delivers an important message: each person's value is based on the fact that God loves us, not what we are able to do or not do. Two very different types of "chairmen" learned this invaluable lesson as the events unfold in this medical mystery, bringing the two together for an unexpected ending.
First Rate Medical Thriller Apr 11, 2001
A wonderful premise! Not usually a fan of the medical thriller genre, I have to admit, The Chairman kept me turning pages! Kraus has a way of defining the medical parameters of the premise and developing that plot-line in a way that's descriptive but never dry. He doesn't try to WOW you with an overabundance of medical jargon, instead, chooses to bow to the flow of good story-telling. The diagnosis is clear...The Chairman is a winner! --Lisa Samson, author of The Church Ladies.
interesting and captivating Nov 10, 2000
This was a gift and as a retired physician I found the book to be medically interesting as well as morally satisfying
Excellent. I could not put it down! Mar 26, 2000
This is the first book by Harry Kraus that I have read, and I am heading out to buy the rest. This book had me hooked from the beginning and kept me up most of the night so I could finish. The story revolves alternatively between a recent spinal injury patient trying to discover the facts relating to his injury (he has amnesia), and the chairman of neurosurgical department and his teenage daughter. Their stories eventually merge as you might imagine and each has a profound influence on the other's life. The storyline of a man and his wife trying to come to grips with a devastating injury and save their marriage is moving and realistic. You can not help but care deeply for these characters, and I was only disappointed at the end because it was over. I look forward to his next book, if it is half as good as this.
A great novel--Kraus' best! Mar 28, 1999
The Chairman held my attention through the whole book. I think it is Kraus's best. His realistic portrayal of a paraplegic let you in on what it must be like to be wheelchair bound. He deals with the issue of God's will in tragedy and weaves a love story into the plot. I'd recommend it to everyone.
