INFLUENZA The Hundred Year Hunt to Cure the Deadliest Disease in History

by | Read by Holter Graham

Contemporary Culture • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Did you get your flu shot yet? No matter your answer, you'll want to listen to this audiobook written by an expert on the disease who works at the National Institutes of Health. Writing a hundred years after the deadly epidemic that killed millions at the end of WWI, Dr. Brown says that we are nowhere near a cure and that even a shot is not a guarantee against the flu. Narrator Holter Graham's ominous approach, elastic phrasing, and somewhat smokey tone wonderfully fit the audiobook's atmosphere. He is able to enunciate complicated medical ideas and convey them, getting excited when he needs to and pausing and emphasizing when necessary to heighten tension. In short, Graham makes the flu a vital character in an audiobook that is a great listen. R.I.G. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2019]
