What made the experience of listening to Open Heart the most enjoyable?
All the struggles that Dr. Westaby had to overcome, not just the operation, medical side, but also the emotional side.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Dr. Westaby himself of course, because of his unerring determination to find either a solution or try as best as possible.
Which character – as performed by Gordon Griffin – was your favorite?
This is a strange question because it's not a book of fiction where the narrator plays many characters simultaneously but a biography or choice diaries type.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
At the beginning of the book, about the story of how Dr. Westaby was inspired to become a surgeon was very touching, while the interviews he went through to get to medical sort certainly earned a good chuckle at the very least.
Any additional comments?
After listening to this book, it made me concerned about how medical practices are still so heavily dependent on a doctor's experience, epiphany and luck rather than exacting scientific methods sometimes.
Couldn't put it down. This is a fascinating story of a remarkable man and his quest to prevent useless death from treatable disease.
