This fascinating work details the work of doctors Geoffrey Tabin (U.S.) and Sanduk Ruit (Nepal) as they travel to isolated and impoverished parts of the globe in an attempt to rid the world of preventable blindness. It's an inspirational story and a great read. Narrator Rob Shapiro has a deep, round-toned voice that rattles the lower half of the audio register but is also supple enough to display elasticity. Shapiro speaks with authority and confidence, and his reading has a spare quality that allows the text to stand out. At times, however, he loses focus, and his voice becomes lethargic, his reading lackluster. While the listening experience would have been improved by sustained energy throughout, overall his narration is successful. R.I.G. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2013]
