As a Persian woman, it was difficult to enjoy this book. Though well written and a worthy story, I found it historically and culturally inaccurate and at times offensive.
An example is the multiple mentions of Ebn Sīna as an Arab!
When in fact, he was Persian. It would be like calling DeSCartes a British ! Blasphemy !

Would you consider the audio edition of The Physician to be better than the print version?
I rarely 'read' books any longer. Call me a kid at heart, but having someone read a story to me is one of my guilty pleasures. The reader's voice is compelling and his accent makes the book seem more authentic somehow.
What did you like best about this story?
I loved the settings for the book and all the travel during a period in history when marauders made travel very dangerous. Going from the UK to Persia was traveling across the world. I enjoyed the plot and the characters tremendously and the differences in culture and beliefs added volumes to the story.
Any additional comments?
The second book is just as good as the first! Go ahead and download it today. You'll be glad that you did!
