In Every Moment We Are Still Alive - Tom Malmquist

This is a novel that reads like a memoir.  Toms life changes as his pregnant partner is taken to the hospital severely ill with what is first diagnosed with the flu.  As her condition deteriorates Tom is forced into a new world of Intensive Care and having to make decisions on behalf of his girlfriend.

The first half of the novel was incredibly tense and fast paced, and I felt myself drawn to the story, but I got a little lost in the middle section.  While I sympathized with the situation Tom was in, I found him a bit grating, and felt he was quite annoying.  3/5

It sounds like an excellent story, just with the wrong direction for a main character.
