This was the first Stegner book I read and it was a great introduction. Great story brought to life by the talented Mark Bramhall. A classic!
I almost gave up in the beginning. But it got better. Some great comedy bits. Love the Sarah Palin skit
....but I couldn't get into this story. John Lee is one of my favorite narrators, but even he couldn't bring this to life for me.
I have really enjoyed this series, but this one lacked the medical aspect that in enjoy.
The human body is very complex, but the author explains the processes in simple terms. Each case was presented well and I learned a great deal about the diagnostic process. The main take away: be honest with your doctor. Something you may not feel pertinent to reveal could kill you.
Sappy story, but Catholic readers might enjoy. Heavy on the religious references. Narration was decent.
Ken Follet is an amazing author and this series is no exception. John Lee does a great job again.
I learned many things about this sad time in the history of England and the impact of the plague. The apothecary's craft is fascinating and so are the characters in the book. Great story overall.
I read this many years ago and thoroughly enjoyed this version. Great author and narration.
I started this book and just can't get into it. May try again another time, but it's pretty boring so far
