Bob Samuels of course. He is who I sympathized with because it is the main character and the narrator
His voice was very easy to listen to
yes but I couldn't lol
I loved this book. It is a great book for any healthcare worker to read as it shows what it is like for the patient that can not communicate but knows what is going on. Mr Samuels really paints a picture on the healthcare system and also how far we have come in just 30 years
