I liked this book quite a bit. Perhaps my positive assessment is bolstered by the fact that I "read" it while on my way to the island of Molokai. Having heard the story prior to gazing down upon that remote peninsula from 2,000 feet above is quite an experience. I also have a positive opinion of the reader, but he admittedly may be an acquired taste. Still, the book is shocking and engaging. The reader is left in the position of learning about the disease along with the real-life characters. It felt very real. I highly recommend the book.

I love a good historical novel, but this book is like the worst, most boring history lesson you ever had to endure. It throws dates, names, and events at you in a rushed, often disorganized manner, and devotes little to the character of the people it tells of. If you like to read facts and dates, you will probably like this one. But, if you want to feel history come alive, pass this one up.
