I am a physician and purchased this book thinking that it might be an interesting read. I had read an excerpt, and recognized the author to be a physician who sincerely cares about his patients. I expected to find an empathetic story of suffering and pain. There was some of that, but there was also much about the legacy of cancer, its history, our feeble efforts to treat it and what may lie ahead.
This book is well written and would appeal to those medically trained or not.
This is a good book. It is narrated in spectacular fashion with each character coming to life through the differing dialects of the narrator. I bought the audiobook for a trip, and sat in the car for 45 minutes at my destination, refusing to leave my car until hearing the end of the story.
