Fiction • 10.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

This novel takes place at a fictional hospital in Michigan, but it’s reasonable to believe that it’s informed by the experiences of the author, who is a neurosurgeon. The story follows five neurosurgeons as they confront their performance on the operating table by reflecting on their successes and failures at each week’s Monday Morning Morbidity and Mortality conference. Narrator Christian Rummel gives this book a fast-paced, dramatic reading that makes it both compelling and entertaining. He effectively uses his deep, authoritative, nasal-tinged voice to portray the doctors as they see themselves. Some are methodical while others believe themselves to be healing gods. Rummel has excellent diction, and he’s a master of pacing and emphasis. He’s also fully committed to his character voices, and they fit the book’s tone perfectly.
