    "ONE OF MY ALL TIME LISTENING FAVORITES"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    First Do No Harm is a book that truly succeeds for an audiophile. Utilizing a cast of many, the audible edition makes you feel that you are not an observer but a character participating in a legal thriller. Within a few minutes, a listener feels like that he or she has known Benjamin Davis, Morty Steine, Laura Patel, and Lars Herman for years. The book is also a much better listen than read. Parts of the courtroom scenes may be tedious in print, but they take on a life of their own when you listen. A reader has to both listen and read both versions of First Do No Harm to gain the true perspective of Benjamin Davis and his ordeal. The literature is the same, but the two works are totally different.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character in First Do No Harm is Morty Steine. Morty is the moral compass and mentor that guides Benjamin Davis. If you took every good trait that a person would want in their lifetime and put it into a crucible, out would pop Morty. I think Morty personifies his creed "Always Do the Right Thing."


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The contested matter between Benjamin Davis, the IRS, and Bradley Littleton. That scene was a lot of fun to read and to listen to.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Laugh or cry is not an appropriate adjective. The book was gripping and kept my attention from start to finish.


    Any additional comments?

    First Do No Harm is a must read by experienced attorneys or someone who wants to get a first hand glimpse of how the legal system works. It is a fair rendition of the highs and lows of the judicial process.

    Story
    "Very interesting legal story. Awesome Narrator."
    Would you consider the audio edition of First Do No Harm to be better than the print version?

    I did not read the print version. Due to my work, I spend a lot of time in my car. I just simply have more time to listen than read.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of First Do No Harm?

    Dr. Herman convincing a patient that he was going to save her life with a gall bladder surgery and that he would wave the $50 deductible. That guy really symbolizes a lot of doctors and how they take advantage of patients and their insurance companies.


    What about J. D. Hart’s performance did you like?

    I found J.D. Hart's performance to be off the chart excellent. He made the story come to life with so many different character voices using, accents, voice pitch and intonation. His voice style is easy on the ear and comforting. He kept me engaged and interested.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, I was hooked from the beginning and needed to find out if justice prevailed.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm looking forward to hearing more from this author A. Turk and his Benjamin Davis Series.

    Story
    "I couldn't get past the terrible narration!"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I don't know if the story is good. I have never heard a book that sounded as though a computer was reading it. I couldn't finish the first chapter.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Something read by Beck or Gerard Doyle!
