Insightful, enlightening, engrossing, and enjoyable. A medical doctor shares his personal experience with "medicine" and the relationship between doctors and patients, touching on the big picture of how things have changed for the better and worse.

Good info, bad speaker

These courses are supposed to be by the best. I don't care how smart this guy is, he's a terrible speaker. He slurs words and tries to annunciate but it's obvious and underwhelming.

I almost gave up on this but I'm glad I gave it a second chance. Lisa is a master at writing about real life, real people, family dynamics, personalities of all ages. All are evident in this book. I recommend it and I will be delving into her other works.

Creative, excellent characters who you care about, great narration and a unique plot. Can't say enough about this series. I now consider myself a Nora Robert's FAN!

Excellent story and narration.

Author has a seemingly unlimited knowledge of the sociopolitical intricacies of the time. The narration, which to me can make or break an audiobook, is flawless. Highly recommend this book as highly as her others.

Loved it!

Robert McCammon never disappoints me and has picked a superb narrator to make this story the total package!

This is by far my favorite Ken Follett book, made even better by my all-time favorite narrator, John Lee. Even though it's a long book, I didn't want it to end. I don't usually listen to audiobooks more than once, but for this one I will make an exception (and that's really saying something since the book is over 40 hours long!)
The characters are so well developed, that I did not find it confusing when he added more and more people to the long list of events. The publisher's summary describes it as Ken Follett's historical masterpiece, and I couldn't agree more.
I love historical fiction, and this book is at the top of my list. They could not have found a better narrator then John Lee to bring it to life. This audiobook should come with a warning: "Although you'll be tempted, don't try to listen to the entire book at once!"

A narrator can make or break any Audiobook, and James Marsters gets 5 stars for this performance. Even though I own and have read every book in this series, I still thoroughly enjoyed this Audiobook. Dresden chases down every type of ghost and ghoul imaginable. He's a likable and down-to-earth hero who the average guy can relate to. Jim Butcher has developed his character so well, it seems like you're reading about an old friend, even though the book is practically nonstop action. I highly recommend that you try this, along with every other book Jim Butcher has written. Enjoy!

An excellent choice!

I gave this book a maximum rating not only because I thoroughly enjoyed the content,but because I could listen to Christopher Hitchens speak all day. For Hitchens fans, this book is a "must listen", especially after his passing. I would also encourage people who don't care for Hitchens and his bold way of speaking out against religion to listen to what he has to say before they judge and criticize him. If he had narrated all of his books, I would've purchased every one of them....He's that good.
