Everyone knows zombies aren’t real, no matter how fun. You don’t have to be a med student to know the dead do not get up and walk around in real life. Anyone who’s buried a pet in the backyard knows the dead don’t walk. They don’t even lurch.
So Giovanni is stunned when his patient sits up in the morgue and starts scolding. The night-shift was supposed be a relief, a chance to study in quiet and off-set ridiculous student loans. Babysitting a huge dog and a dead voodoo mambo were not part of the plan. Now he’s got to convince an unbelieving medical community to take action, so he can get back to learning about the dead – not the undead!
Giovanni Goes to Med School is a fairly short, humorous book about a med student who takes a 3rd shift job in the morgue of the hospital he’s an intern at. When his first “visitor” to the morgue sits up and starts talking, things just go downhill for Giovanni from there.
The poor guy is tasked with taking care of Mrs. Harris giant slobbering dog, Rufus, whom she brought along on her trip to the emergency room for a dislocated shoulder. She must be anesthetized for the procedure so from that point on, Rufus is the responsibility of Giovanni.
This book is almost a comedy of errors for Giovanni. Every time he turns around there is something else going wonky. I really enjoyed the writing style of Ms. Bryson and she must have a great sense of humor to come up with some of the crazy things that go on in this book.
I don’t really have any complaints with this book other than I would have liked for it to have had more backstory on some of the characters and been a bit longer. Overall, this was worth reading. In fact, this was the second time I read the book because I forgot to write my review the first time!
