Although I was already familiar with the Doc Holiday story I was very impressed with this look at his life. The narrator was spot on and lent a great deal of credibility to the story. Loved it!
I did not think I would like "Doc" but it has been a pleasant surprise. Doc is the kind of book you know will make a great movie and you know the actor that should play "Doc" would be Jude Law I do so hope they make a movie out of this book.
.I also Love the narrator of this book and will see what other books be has done.
Having been a fan of "The Sparrow" all I needed to know was that Mary Doria Russell wrote in a different genre and I was ready with a credit. The writer's style and voice gave the prose depth, and the dialogue brought the characters to life, enhanced by great voice interpretations by the reader for the various characters. I'm also very interested to look for more about the Earp's and Doc Holliday. The reader was new to me and his voice enhanced the full audio experience, for me he's up there with Scott Brick, Stefan Rudnicki and Will Patton. I'm about to go looking for others Mark Bramhall has narrated. It's fun to follow a reader's work as well as an author's, as the result is often great new books that may never have been discovered otherwise.
Almost all of the reviews I read for Doc were 4 stars or above, everyone seems to love this book but me.
I really liked the premise and the first third of the book was promising, I felt like the author was setting up an intriguing story, but it just never took off. The last third of the book read like just more set-up and it didn't ever get off the ground for me.
this book brings the life of dr. holiday and his associates into full color. The reading of this text is entertaining, complete with fabulous accents from the south. each character has own voice. if I had to knock one star off, it was simply because the final closing of the book which has obviously been covered in other novels and historical accounts was quite lacking. However the first 22 chapters were delightful.
Tell us about yourself!
I highly recommend this book it is a great way to get insight into Doc Holiday and his life. We'll written and the narrator did a fanometable job with the reading. I believe that this book should be offered in schools it is so well executed.
Thank you for writing this book!
I thoroughly enjoyed Doc and highly recommended it for anyone interested in historical fiction or westerns in general. Also Mark Bramhall has an amazingly soothing voice which made Doc an easy listen.
A fascinating story. Doc was quite an interest fellow. Great voice for all the characters.
i LOVED this book! The narrator was thr best I've heard so far, and the story was deeply engrossing, very entertaining, charming, abd humorous. The novel well written with beautifully descriptive prose you get lost in but not overwhelmed by; in short, a must read!
