Less use of bad language!
Less bad language
I bought the book because the story sounded interesting. Unfortunately i cannot stand excessive use of bad language!
I'd like my point/money back!
Awful. Just awful. The author is trying to be cool, hip, and breezy and comes off as merely annoying. I couldn't have cared less about the main character or anyone else.
It is hard to imagine that the Federal government is going to rehabilitate a cold blooded murderer by sending them to medical school. As a physician I can tell you that a number of the medical events that take place during the course of the book are very unlikely. If you don't care about this, then it is an entertaining story.
I have recommended this audiobook to friends and they've enjoyed it also - fun listen - pure escapism
If you're looking for a good listen without any compelling message - try this one . . . I don't think you'll be disappointed.
Less profanity and unnecessary "f"words. Does he not know any other adjectives? It was distracting. I took a chance on an unknown author, and I should not have bothered.
The performance was not bad, considering what he had to be reading.
I was disappointed- this was my first audiobook I ever listened to, and it turned me off on audiobooks for a while.
A second listen is a must for me. The story has a lot of details and info you (or maybe just me) just cant absorb all of in one pass.
The storyline concerning the family that raised him.
I ordered this book based upon a recommendation on Audible.com, and it was right on point. I really enjoyed the story and the reading of it!
ER Doc escaping reality
I loved the true voice and asides that you could almost hear as if they were in your own head.
Talk about true true true picture of urban medicine...well, minus the hitman bit, but that's totally believable.
Sardonic humor was dripping with wry acid and I loved it.
Loved the voice and tempo
I waited and waited for Josh's second book, but it just wasn't as good. Hard to be, but I had hoped.
It's edgy. Violent, gripping. Even my wife didn't want to turn it off, and she hates violence. It has a lot going for it beyond the visceral. It feeds the mind some tidbits here and there as well. A guilty pleasure with some nutrients thrown in for good measure.
I won't spoil the good moments by pointing them out. It has many.
Robert Petkoff is one of the best readers - in the top 3 - I've heard, absolutely no doubt. I wouldn't say he is #3 either. Or #2. He delivers the confidence of the characters and has enough range to make the differences count between them. The main character's voice is delivered with power, and you don't fatigue. He curses well.
I had some laughs. I'm not done yet, so I'll get back to you on the crying.
I love the combination of crime, action, grit, history, and medical procedural insights. It's always good to learn about the real world through engrossing fiction.
Couldnt put it down! Fun and well dramatized! If you're squeamish then don't drive while listening to the conclusion of the story. I almost lost it on the freeway!!
