The quality of the narration was outstanding! The work itself, not so much - certainly above average, but not good; it got a bit repetitive and tedious near the end; it could have been a quarter shorter and been better for it.
This book was pretty great. The audiobook made for an easy read (not for the squeamish though), but I'm always interested in medicine and this memoir of a medical examiner in New York was really fascinating with bits of humor thrown in among the gore. The chapter(s) on 9/11 were particularly riveting albeit depressing, but something that I found I was really interested in hearing about. I would recommend this to anyone interested in science or memoirs of people with "different" or quirky jobs.
This book provides a look into a profession most are not familiar with - city medical examiners. Maybe I'm morbid, but I really liked this book - even listened to it on my lunch break, while the narrator talked about maggots and dismemberment and what-have-you. The book is more a series of anecdotes than a narrative, loosely grouped into themes, so it's great for listeners/readers who don't have a lot of time to read in one sitting. Great for fans of forensics and true crime!
I really enjoyed this audiobook. The author was doing her final training as a medical examiner in New York when 9/11 occurred. That section was fascinating and heartbreaking to hear and the rest of the book was interesting and informative too.
