HASH(0x9b4a5774) out of 5 stars An intriguing story, well-told July 23 2014
By Retired Teacher - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Perhaps not a novel for everyone, but I know the author as a wonderful poet. This is a beautifully written, rather taut psychological story that reflects the author's background as a physician.

HASH(0x9b34f4bc) out of 5 stars Written almost experimentally, it falls flat. May 28 2005
By Peter LaPrade - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Abse's "Dr Simmonds" was a boring novel that is thankfully short(about 180 pages). Most of the novel takes place through the diary entries of Dr. Simmonds, who is an Anti-Semite and has a noticable dark side that becomes darker once he becomes attracted to the wife of one of his patients.
