Paul Michael narrates this audio book edition.
The Jungle Doctor series is a four-part collection of books based off the original Jungle Doctor radio broadcast by Paul White. These books, as well as the broadcast, detail White’s missionary experiences in Tanzania and throughout Africa. While much of Africa has changed over the course of time, the same basic afflictions (malaria, etc.) exist, and the Gospel has not changed. The purpose? By telling tales, this collection, specifically book one reviewed here, encourages the efforts in Africa, sharing the work of bringing health, wealth, and salvation to the African people.
Michael’s narration is an excellent choice for this audiobook edition. Speaking with a clear dictation, Michael narrates at a medium pace and pauses at appropriate locations, allowing listeners to soak in the experience. Almost a performance, but more as if an informational audio collection with an authority on the subject, Michael’s voice is on par for description, yet carrying an appropriate educational tone. Through fiction, Michael gives life to the mission that White is attempting to accomplish: bringing hope to Africa. Well written, and well read, this audio is great for fiction enthusiasts and missionaries alike.Disclosure: I have received a reviewer copy and/or payment in exchange for an honest review of the product mentioned in this post.
