This book was not what I expected, but it truly surpassed my expectations as I listened. The significance of the historical setting in which this flu epidemic occurred became more and more clear as the book progressed. This was an excellent presentation of both the historical setting, the state of medical practice and clinical research, and the events of this epidemic. My grandfather was a young physician at the time of this epidemic, and this put many of the stories I had heard into the proper perspective. Scott Brick is an excellent narrator, crisp and clear; a true complement to the story. I highly recommend this book.
I have tried to listen to this book several times. Every time I try to listen, the narrator's mouth noises make me switch to another book. I can't tell whether she has "dry mouth" or too much spittle, but I hear it with every word. Sometimes the narration is only due to poor editing, but it is impossible to listen to this book. I think I will have to read it on paper.
