Once again, Noah Gordon wraps a sense of modern reality in the story of the Coles. For me, personally, this wasn't the brightest of the trilogy, but that is most likely due to the fact that it is set in 'today's world. My knowledge is deeper about the issues, so R. J's experiences were not unexpected as it relates to the practice of medicine.
I still thoroughly enjoyed the book. Aug 07, Cheryl rated it it was amazing. This is a strong, dramatic story about a woman doctor making tough moral decisions. It has good medical descriptions, and hits home with small-town life and living green! Good ethical questions and soul-searching! View 1 comment. Jan 26, Shamsh rated it it was amazing.
I loved this book so much. It touches some subjects which I consider very important and it is as well-written as the 2 first books of the saga. View all 3 comments. Oct 06, Sheri rated it really liked it. I liked this book very much. It is the story of RJ Cole, doctor. This is the last book of a trilogy about the Drs.
The first two were about lands far away and long ago. The other docs were men and RJ is a woman. She has inherited "the Gift" that some of her ancestors had, in that she can feel the imminent death of a person simply by holding their hands and sensing the outcome of their health.
There is alot going on in this book. Three women have been friends for many years and we follow t I liked this book very much. Three women have been friends for many years and we follow their struggles as they become doctors and the paths they choose in their lives and careers.
RJ eventually becomes a country doctor after leaving a bad marriage and a career in Boston. Her father is a good mentor and she confides in him and has a good relationship with him. He is not sure about her decision but supports her. She does well in the country and is well received after some time.
She has a love interest, David in her life and it is complicated and becomes more so as the story moves along. He has a daughter, Sara, who is wary of hert at first, but then accepts her into their lives.
Then there is tragedy and you must keep reading She volunteers in an abortion clinic.

I sighed as I read that part and it is part of a fallen world, so I guess the author must have included it for a reason.
For awhile, she lives alone in this house on the verge and the lyrical language of her life is truly poetical. The imagery that comes to mind when reading all the outdoor scenes is really lovely. You can close your eyes and feel like you're right there. I was sorry to see it end, but, alas, there are several more books by Noah Gordon that I haven't yet read!!

I liked this third book in the Cole trilogy, but it was my least favorite of the three. First of all, it took place in the 's, which is a bit too comtemporary for me.
The story seemed a bit more laid back than the other 2 novels in the trilogy. Nothing terribly exciting happened to the main character R.
Nevertheless, I did enjoy the book. It was easy to read. I did think that the book I liked this third book in the Cole trilogy, but it was my least favorite of the three. I did think that the book could have gone a bit further I wondered about RJ's baby at the end and what happened to the baby. And did she ever tell David that he was going to be a father? I guess we'll never know. Mar 10, Bookwurms rated it it was amazing Shelves: I've never given a 5 star to a book and I've read many books!
I absolutely loved this story. To go from the other two wonderful books in the genre of historical fiction to writing in the "NOW" era so proficiently is a wonder to me. Especially writing about a woman from a male author's point of view I was very impressed! I was so fascinated by the character I wanted to be there with her, fishing in the river and building that bridge!!
I've been somewhat of a tomboy all my life and I could so iden I've never given a 5 star to a book and I've read many books! I've been somewhat of a tomboy all my life and I could so identify with the character, in the fact that I believe there is nothing a woman can't do if she puts her heart to it!
Thank you Mr Gordon you have reinforced that conviction in me!! Feb 23, Kathy rated it liked it Shelves: This was totally different than Noah Gordon's first two in the series.
That, I'm afraid, made it hard to get into, as I loved the history in the two earlier books. I also felt that this book focused too much on politics of the day, abortion clinics, health care problems in modern times. I suppose it was just too real to life for me to really enjoy it. Thus, the 3 stars.
And I almost didn't finish it, so I guess I liked it enough to find out what happened. Jun 12, Beth rated it it was ok. Worth reading if you have started the series. But, it does not live up to my expectations after the first two books.
For those reviewers who found the book liberally biased and the main character to be far too liberal, I wonder at their finding it so or not expecting it to be so. Cole as I would later do with his descendant Shaman in America all the way to Persia. How people dressed, ate, how they lived, the relationship with the Jewish community. The remarkable writing style ensured that the length of the book merely made it more appealing. The longer I spent reading it, the more I enjoyed it.
So much so that I was saddened when the book was drew to its end. It definitely ranks among my favorite books of all time View all 8 comments. May 16, Natalie rated it it was amazing Shelves: I love historical fiction. I love to learn about religion in historical fiction. I loved this book! This book takes place during the 11th century in Europe.
It is about a Christian man who disguises himself as a Jew in order to go to a Muslim school of Medicine in the Middle East. It was so interesting to learn how these three major religions interacted with each other during that time in history.
There is one problem with the book though: Since this bo I love historical fiction. Since this book talks about most of the details if Robert Cole's life,it throws that in there as well. View 2 comments. When I read it, over ten years ago, I was quite taken with it. Though not taken enough to persue the series further.
I also remember ranting about the movie which I've seen a shorter while ago for being lacking in many departments, putting too much emphasis on a love story that didn't exist in the book in that way, and being a lot more "eurocentrist" in who is the hero than the book was. Aclaro esto porque debo decir que si no fuera por mi madre, por la fuerza de la promesa que le hice y el aliento que me daba poder compartir con ella y contarle lo que iba pasando a cada paso que daba en la historia, no lo hubiera terminado.
Peo Rob no quiere quedarse con eso, el quiere aprender la medicina real, quiere ser capaz de ayudar a la gente, y para eso, debe dirigirse a Persia. Los personajes estuvieron muy muy bien y sobre todo muy reales. Fue un fuerte eje de la historia, ya que todo el libro se revuelve a su alrededor, naturalmente.
If we can explain the disease, someone yet unborn may devise a cure. El final fue simple pero absolutamente satisfactorio y en paz. Jun 16, Audrey rated it it was amazing Shelves: I found this book when I looked for something similar to Follets "Pillars of the Earth" and I'm really glad I read it. Both the medieval setting in Britain and the fact that you accompany the protagonist for a long period of his life are aspects this book has in common with "Pillars of the Erath".
But as the story goes on it also teaches the reader a lot about the islamic and jewish religion at that time, as well as about the medical practices in the medieval era, which is really interresting. A very good read! I generously give 3. I had read it many years ago, around age 10 I think and it was this book that generated my lifelong interest in the history of medecine. To be fair to the author I believe the parts covering Judaism and Arabic medicine of the period are broadly accurate but probably no more than tha I generously give 3.
To be fair to the author I believe the parts covering Judaism and Arabic medicine of the period are broadly accurate but probably no more than that, despite NG's apparent research. Ibn Sina did exist but died in I do note the date of publication and historical fiction at that time was apt to have less expected of it, to my mind.
So, a few of the errors I encountered: Rob J Cole - the main character has a name that would never have been used in England at that time. Even Robert was rare, middle names did not exist for the masses and even today I have never met anyone using their name as a shortened first name plus middle initial in Britian - that is an Americanism.
Finally, humble people also did not have surnames but were known by what they or their father did. Rob J's father was a carpenter so where did Cole come from? This absolutely basic set of errors sets the tone for the whole book! Witch pricking and the whole set of beliefs about witches sounds straight out of the Salem witch trials! There is little record of witchcraft in historical record and most of them were wise women, not barber-surgeons, which was an actual profession, albeit ineffective.
Matters of Choice
I think the fear that he and Barber would be thought witches was overstated and the incident from Barber's past was unlikely. The whole issue belonged more in the 16th century or later. An accusation of heresy was a more likely threat if their practice stepped outside the accepted domain. The language Rob J studies so diligently is no Parsi but Farsi.
A Parsi is actually from India and is a Zoroastrian. Travelling barber-surgeons did exist in England, being first recorded at exactly the time of the novel. However Barber carried out the job more like a travelling quack in the US in a much later era. The basic premise of the story was impossible - there is no way Rob J could have impersonated a Jew at that time and for that long and without really knowing how to be a Jew!
Rob J thought like a modern man not a man of the 11th century. To have even conceived of doing what he did was beyond unlikely.
NG also imputed an impossible freedom to women and Mary's father would never have considered a marriage between them as she was socially above Rob J. Finally but far from exhaustively! The merest hint that he had looked inside a body would have probably ended in him being killed as a heretic.
Here endeth my narrative! Apr 24, Tom Gonzalez rated it really liked it Recommends it for: People who like historical fictions and adventures. Noah Gorgon's ability to transport you back into the dark ages is a result of talent and insightful research. This is a story of a young man born in London during the reign of King Knute and his transformation throughout his life to become Hakim, the Persian word for Physician.
For a Christian, to become a physician was deemed sacrilegious by the all powerful church, and the Islamic world would kill infidels on sight. The protagonist, Rob J Cole, had to become something altogether different than Noah Gorgon's ability to transport you back into the dark ages is a result of talent and insightful research.
The protagonist, Rob J Cole, had to become something altogether different than a Christian or a Muslim in order to accomplish the metamorphosis from a dark age European to an enlightened scientist. The adventures lived and the growth undergone was inspiring for me and almost led me to become a physician. I thoroughly enjoyed the descriptions of old England and Ancient Persia, their cultures, the harshness and impossibly of life, and historical allusions. This book is a great escape, to a world far, far from here.
Oct 05, Miquel Reina rated it it was amazing Shelves: A book that I highly recommended if you like such novels "The Pillars of the Earth" in which generations of different eras are mixed, the history of medicine and exciting travel through exotic places.
Spanish version: Un libro muy recomendable si te gustan las novelas tipo "Los Pilares de la Tierra" en el que se mezclan gener The Physician is the first book of the excellent trilogy Cole Family of Noah Gordon I read. Historical-fiction adventure travelogue explores 11th century relationship of three major religions.
It's a page turner. Aug 22, Mehdir rated it did not like it. The Physician can easily be ranked as one of the most racist, prejudicial, erroneous, and contradictory novels, yet to be written on the East the Others. Islam and Persia are grotesquely sexualized. Domes on the mosques are described as body parts. The majority of the jargons, transliterations, simple Persian vocabulary, locations, historical figures, historical events, and Islamic terms are wrong throughout the novel!
One would expect a historical novel, even if imaginative, to have a bit of research, editorial review, and educational preparedness. Read the following statements on how Persians and Islam are described throughout the book. All are racist, prejudicial, stereotypical, and clearly untrue.
These are just a few examples: Karim thought something like that probably was true. The climax of hatred and animosity toward the Persian land Persia is grotesquely depicted when Rob enters Persia and reaches a lake Urmiya. Lonzano grinned. One should only hope that this will not result in another biased, false, and shallow movie, one that only increases the distance between Us and Them, and pushes love and compassion further away.

I've completed the entire trilogy and highly recommend it. The Physician was the lead-in to a multi-generational story that is well researched and beautifully written. I'm ready to read all three again. Avicena, Galeno, Al-Razi Ni idea. Al final escasa trascendencia, novela correcta; pero olvidable.

The negative points: I hated the way the author used conversations between the characters in the book to give historical and religious facts. These conversations were unnatural, didn't always add to the plot and sometimes were just a technical description of doing something juggling for example.
A lot of the events in the book were unlikely events to happen, and you feel that they were added just to help the plot move along.
Books by Noah Gordon (Author of The Physician)
This would have been fine, in my opinion, if the author added a level o The negative points: This would have been fine, in my opinion, if the author added a level of complication to the story but that wasn't the case.
The book has a lot of mistakes about Islam. It's clear that the author read about Islam, but clearly he gained just a superficial understanding, and didn't research that much into it. It contained a lot of contradictions, and sometimes you feel, through the misinformation, that some of the author's sources hold hatred towards Islam. This is a problem because a lot of people take everything written as a fact. Consequently, I couldn't trust the information mentioned in the book about the other religions.
The positive points: I read the book because I was interested in reading about life in the eleventh century, and I was intrigued to read about how people practiced medicine in that period, and enjoyed the parts of the book that handled that side. I liked the last part of the book more than the beginning where not much occurred.
Palabras y rituales que, a menos que quieras ser el rey del trivium, no te sirven para nada! Tiene partes interesantes, pero no lo suficiente para compensar las partes aburridas. No es mi tipo de libro. Recomendable para: A long rambling tale that contained numerous historical inaccuracies, especially in how the Qur'an views Christianity and Judaism.
As this is very much the essence of the story Rob J is a healer who disguises himself as a Jew so he can go to Persia and study doctoring skills it places doubt in what other errors exist. It also portrays Muslims to be drunks, and their minarets are modelled on the female breast. Please no more No he llegado a terminarlo. Did not like this book at all. I was too long winded. No better than a long writing exercise.
Good research. Bad literature. Characters were passable. I didn't think he got into the medical aspects deeply enough. But, I am a physician. He was capable of reciting historical research and creating characters to enliven the research. But, there easily could have been a twist or creative metaphors to make me more impressed and more likely to remember it. I can't recommend it. This book was a complete disaster.
It had no plot—it simply followed the main character around in his everyday life from his childhood until his death. It was like reading a biography or memoir written by someone who has no idea how to filter out irrelevant information and decided to include every boring detail of the main character's life.
Got the Cole Trilogy titles as a bargain ebook download last year and finally got around to reading them the past few days. Of the three books, the second Shaman is the best.
Really really long and really really boring. There were a few parts about the history of medical care that were interesting but they didn't make up for the rest of it for me.
