Professional reviews

"It would be all too easy to read this book about devastating diseases with a basso profundo voice of doom, but that would make the narration almost unbearable and also would go against the author's style. Instead, narrator Gabra Zackman follows the author's lead and takes a lighter tone. She is especially effective at capturing the author's use of irony and occasional expressions of incredulity. This makes the narrative flow more easily and keeps listeners engaged. This is not to say the author is not serious about her subject. Her scholarship is evident, but she doesn't want to discourage readers by taking an overly somber tone. The same is true for Zackman. R.C.G. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine"
