Would you try another book from Noah Gordon and/or Ben Owen?
I like Noah Gordon's work. Ben Owen did a credible job overall but I won't be eager to listen to more of his work.
What didn’t you like about Ben Owen’s performance?
Owen is a Brit? Maybe an Aussie? Nothing wrong with that, but he needed to work on his pronunciation of American place names and some American vernacular. As a Midwesterner who grew up near the places Gordon used in this book I cringed every time I heard the names come out of Owen's mouth.
I suppose that's only fair, since Americans have a habit of mispronouncing a lot of non-American words, names, place names, etc.
Any additional comments?
Entertaining series, would have been cheaper to buy the Kindle edition and read it than it was to spend a credit on the audiobook.
This is a historical novel about a physician in the 1800’s. Some interesting and well done parts but the plot meanders and occasionally loses its way. Nice description of Medicine and living conditions of the times. A bit of a stretch that the doc should be involved in both the Underground Railroad and Gettysburg.
The narrator is very good but as in The Physician he mispronounces both medical and Hebrew terms at times.
Overall fairly good but not as good as The Physician, the first book in the series. I won’t be going on to the third book.
