Dana Schwartz's Anatomy: A Love Story is a gothic tale full of mystery and romance.

Hazel Sinnett is a lady who wants to be a surgeon more than she wants to marry.
Jack Currer is a resurrection man who's just trying to survive in a city where it's too easy to die.
When the two of them have a chance encounter outside the Edinburgh Anatomist's Society, Hazel thinks nothing of it at first. But after she gets kicked out of renowned surgeon Dr. Beecham's lectures for being the wrong gender, she realizes that her new acquaintance might be more helpful than she first thought. Because Hazel has made a deal with Dr. Beecham: if she can pass the medical examination on her own, Beecham will allow her to continue her medical career. Without official lessons, though, Hazel will need more than just her books??she'll need corpses to study.
Lucky that she's made the acquaintance of someone who digs them up for a living, then.
But Jack has his own problems: strange men have been seen skulking around cemeteries, his friends are disappearing off the streets, and the dreaded Roman Fever, which wiped out thousands a few years ago, is back with a vengeance. Nobody important cares??until Hazel.
Now, Hazel and Jack must work together to uncover the secrets buried not just in unmarked graves, but in the very heart of Edinburgh society… (mer)

Such a satisfying, gothic romance. Great characters, cinematic-like storytelling, and a perfect balance of grim and sweet. I would love to see a continuation. ( )

Das Cover des Buches finde ich richtig gelungen! Inhaltlich geht es um Hazel, eine junge Frau aus der Oberschicht, die im 19. Jahrhundert in Edinburgh Chirurgin werden möchte. Dabei hilft ihr der Leichenräuber ("Auferstehungsmann") Jack. Das Buch ist ganz süß, eine interessante Medizingeschichte und nette Liebesgeschichte, kombiniert mit Schauer und zum Ende hin ein wenig Mystery. Nicht alles ist ganz in sich logisch, aber zu viel Logik schadet hier auch eher. Den zweiten Teil werde ich wohl nicht mehr lesen. ( )

Hazel engaged to a Viscount is ready to abandon her nobility in order to follow her dream of becoming a surgeon. She meets Jack a grave robber - a resurrection man who supplies bodies to the anatomists.
Mixed with all this is the discovery of a serum for immortality. ( )

Anatomy: a love story is a love story about science and medicine--about anatomy.

Hazel Sinnett lives in the early 1800s where she is expected to wed for money and be content as the lesser gender. Hazel, however, fails to find value in either pursuit. She loves anatomy and only dreams of becoming a doctor. She's actually very lucky, which is where you will have to suspend your disbelief. As a member of a good family, Hazel possesses all she needs monetarily and possession-wise. Her mother rarely acknowledges her except to remind Hazel that she must marry her cousin, the future Viscount. This marriage brings money and prestige. As Hazel has been raised with Bernard, she feels very comfortable around him. Like a brother. She knows this marriage must be her future and expects it. She believes Bernard will allow her to continue studying and pursue becoming a doctor. After all, it's just her cousin and he's always accepted her love. Problem is that he seems to be growing up and behaving as he is expected to behave as a gentleman and Viscount. Hazel, however, isn't following the role assigned to her. She also fails to treat Bernard very well. She dismisses him and often rudely speaks to him. She has no patience to deal with mundane, silly matters like courtship and marriage. Instead, Hazel plans to spend her time studying.

Hazel concocts a plan to become a doctor. She dresses in her dead brother's clothes and joins the Anatomist Society, taking classes to become a doctor upon passing the Physician's Exam. Dr. Beecham, considered one of the most advanced doctors, teaches here. On her first day, Hazel finds herself locked out. A young man, Jack Currer, shows her another way to get in. He would know. He's a resurrections. In other words, he unburies bodies and delivers them to whoever pays. After Dr. Beecham discovers that George Hazelton is really Hazel Sinnett, he makes a deal with her, as he admires her mind. She can attend if she passes the Physician's Exam. She must study on her own. Hazel now studies at home, having Jack bring her bodies. Hazel and Jack find themselves attracted to each other. She cares nothing about social class and finds this resurrectionist a fascinating person, enjoying his company and his energy.

I would say that the novel was perfectly fine. I wasn't ever enthralled. Having a bit of trouble suspending my disbelief that Hazel would have so much freedom to do all that she does, I often felt the plot was too unrealistic for the time period. Also, there's not much of a love story. I like Jack very much, but their scenes are limited. I'll probably listen to the second and final novel as well, but I'm fine with the ending and not re-visiting this storyline. ( )

I just picked this up in the library because it was new and kind of about horror, I really hoped that the love story wouldn’t overpower the rest of the book and it ended up being just right. I quite liked it but I don’t know if I will he picking up the sequel. I do recommend reading it though, if you’re alright with a bit of blood ( )
