What the Critics Are Saying About SM:I:
“Lambent, lucid prose…Compelling reading. I was utterly charmed.” —Martin Grey
“And if you take too long with the next chapter, I’ll break your
other jaw.” –Ibid
"Fantastico cuento. Se debe leer lo inmediatamente; si no, preparase a morir estupido."
—El Pais, Madrid
"...une des meilleures fanfictions [du monde]. Parfaitement bien écrite, haletante, bouleversante, quelquefois drôle, toujours touchante. A lire absolument."
— Le Figaro, Paris
“Yes! We told you Hugh Laurie was losing his hair. Exclusive photos.” —The Daily Mail, London
“SM:I’s fascinating characters and storyline are ruined, for this reviewer, by the glaring inaccuracies of the medicine. In Part 1, for example, a nurse tries to start an IV using an 18-gauge needle, when a 16-gauge needle is clearly called for. I know it’s fiction, willing suspension of disbelief, etc., but still. —Dr. Huu, Medical Economics
“Derivative.”—Soap Opera Digest
“And also clichéd. I mean, amnesia? Please.”—Soap Opera News
When Wilson next checked, over the top of his newspaper, House was awake again, staring at the ceiling. He spoke without turning his head, as if talking to himself.
