Editorial Reviews

The story revolves around two patients who meet in hospital room 50. They are living with different outlooks and vastly diverse life circumstances. One is a 19-year old medical student with an untreatable fatal disease. As she races towards her end, every breath to her seems like a milestone labelled with victory. The other is a patient with multiple organ failure due to a history of drug abuse. He cannot wait for his last breath to arrive.

These two polar opposites in the hospital room are fighting death, as their doctors bend rules of medicine and at some points, even their ethics to keep them breathing. With a team of interns and their personal demons from the past to haunt them, the story depicts various shades of two lives crossing paths in a single room.

Caught between their last moments, the two patients with not much in common, except their advancing death, share their tragic and inspiring stories and influence the lives of everyone around them. This book, prancing around a race towards death, is beautifully written and swells up the throat of the readers with tears at multiple points in the story-line.
