Having spent the last twenty-something years with her nose in a textbook, brilliant and driven Norah Kapadia has just landed the medical residency of her dreams. But after a disastrous first day, she’s ready to quit. Disgruntled patients, sleep deprivation, and her duty to be the “perfect Indian daughter” have her questioning her future as a doctor.
Enter chief resident Ethan Cantor. He’s everything Norah aspires to be: respected by the attendings, calm during emergencies, and charismatic with the patients. As he morphs from Norah’s mentor to something more, it seems her luck is finally changing.
When a fatal medical mistake is made, pulling Norah into a cover-up, she must decide how far she’s willing to go to protect the secret. What if “doing no harm” means risking her career and the future for which she’s worked so hard?
Spoiler Free Review
In The White Coat Diaries, we are transported to a world filled with medical terms, diagnosis, and the life of a working woman. Through the life of Norah Kadapia, we are shown her world in the beginning as an intern at a hospital, learning the ropes of what it would truly take to become a doctor.
But, along the way, we are given drama, complications, and a burst of emotions in which a doctor must face. Luckily for Norah, with the help of resident Dr. Ethan Cantor, she is able to gain insight and a deeper understanding of life as a doctor.
I gave The White Coat Diaries three stars, liking the way we got an introduction with how an intern lives and works. Through the life of Norah Kadapia, I felt that it was so easy to feel her emotions run through me. I felt connected to her and I could see how much of her character shown through the words. I found the relationship between Norah and Ethan quite interesting, quite enjoying how even though they had a romance, in some ways, I’m glad that the focus of The White Coat Diaries was not on her relationship with Ethan and her properly ending up with Ethan. I did however find it quite interesting to read as the synopsis on Goodreads had mentioned that The White Coat Diaries was romance focused, however, it didn’t feel that way.
I found that while reading The White Coat Diaries, it was a little messy. While I know that this was showing the life of doctors and interns, it wasn’t the story I found messy, it was more the writing style that made me uncomfortable. I felt that everywhere I read, I was focusing on ten different things at once. It made me confused for majority of the part and I just felt all over the place while reading this.
That being said, I did enjoy the growth Norah went through during the whole book and I liked how she became such a strong doctor and growing throughout the book. I feel like in some ways, I got a little bit more of an understanding toward doctors, nurses, and the interns and students that are hoping to one day become doctors.
Thank you again to NetGalley for providing me an ARC of The White Coat Diaries in exchange for an honest review.
