Reviews

LJ Reviews 2008 September #2

With this exciting look at the life of a modern-day veterinary surgeon, BBC Audiobooks America turned a great book into an even more enjoyable listening experience by smartly casting Simon Vance (www.simonvance.com ) as the reader. Vance's British accent is perfect for the protagonist veterinarian, and he narrates the other characters with equal skill. Highly recommended for all public libraries. [Discs indexed inaudibly at the start of each chapter and at regular intervals throughout; audio clip available through www.bbcaudiobooksamerica.com ; the Broadway hc was "recommended for all libraries," LJ 2/1/08.—Ed.]—Theresa Connors, Arkansas Tech Univ. Lib., Russellville

PW Reviews 2008 April #4

Though he practices veterinary medicine in Boston, Trout hails from the U.K., so it's fitting that fellow Brit, Simon Vance, narrates. At a couple of points early in the recording, Vance stumbles slightly in bringing to life a few minor figures with pronounced regional American accents. He quickly regains his stride and settles on a style that conveys exact emotions appropriate to the frenetic pace of a large urban animal hospital. With Vance's smooth delivery, Trout's informative asides about the state of his often romanticized and largely misunderstood profession flow nicely into the action. The dramatic tension reaches a climax worthy of ER or Grey's Anatomy , and Vance's portrayal of one family soap opera featuring a lonely widower hoping for a miracle to save the life of his beloved German shepherd and the man's type-A personality daughter angrily dismissing Trout as a misguided purveyor of false hope, proves especially electrifying. Simultaneous release with the Broadway hardcover (Reviews, Dec. 24). (Apr.)
