    I was surprised by how engaged I was by the story. Well written, easy to listen to.

    Loved the novel as a kid love the audiobook better as an old man and it's free! Sure can't beat that price.

    OMG this was such a great story! The author used such out -of-the-box thinking when writing this story. Gave me the warm "fuzzies". Would definitely recommend!

    I read this book 50 years ago. It made me want to be a doctor. I followed that dream. It was lovely to revisit a book from so long ago and to discover that I still liked it.

    After the first chapter I thought this is just going to be silly but somewhere around the second or third chapter I realized that I couldn’t stop listening. If you hang in just a little it will be worth it!

    I enjoyed this book very much. I hated to have to stop my listening when I had to stop. It was interesting and enjoyable.

    An excellent read/listen. The prejudice thread is meaningful today. Books from this era are always a hoot to learn what they thought we would be doing in the future. Anybody still reading ticker tape? After reading I learned that the author was born in Des Moines, where I live. He worked his way through med school writing for SciFi mags and Good Housekeeping under the title "Family Doc".
