Inspiring, exciting, entertaining for the whole family!
This delightful book begins with a reference section, probably very helpful in print form. The characters are introduced and common phrases translated, and we hear a brief biography of the author. You could easily skip the sections on characters and translations, as the book is told in a way that explains these as you go. However, don't miss the biography and important facts about Tanzania, as they really ground the story in its proper setting.

Jungle Doctor and the Whirlwind is the perfect book for car trips or family reading time, but adults will enjoy it just as much as children. Told from the author's point of view, we get a real feel for his life as a medical missionary. This doctor working in rural Africa weaves important health information and spiritual truths into stories and word pictures that the people will understand. All the while, he is displaying wisdom, cultural sensitivity, and strong character. The doctor not only faces disease, injuries, and the normal occurrences of a health clinic in this part of the world, but he also battles greed, drugs, and deception among his trusted co-workers.

Paul Michael's narration was incredible. Each character had the appropriate accent, with a bit milder accent for the doctor as he told his story than when he actually spoke to other characters. I checked the christianaudio several times to be sure the same man was reading the whole story, as it seemed to me that this MUST be a team narration. The guy is that good.

Of course, I'm a bit partial to books about missionaries. My only regret with this book is that I didn't find the series when my children were younger, before we came on the field. It's inspiring, exciting, and very entertaining.

Fabulous! A family favourite! Buy this for the whole family.
Our family has always loved the Jungle Doctor series in print. The simple, humourous and descriptive language grabs your attention and holds it.

The stories of a missionary doctor in Africa facing trials, having adventures and sharing God's love with others have a simple yet bold message that is so relevant for our lives today.

We must have listened to the four audio books currently available at least 5 times each and have not become tired of them yet.

I could even see this being used in schools and for church events.

The narration is superb. The narrator is a master at bringing the story to life and making a difficult job seem deceptively simple. Well done!

AudioBooks, please consider producing the rest of the Jungle Doctor series in audio format. We will be buying every other Jungle Doctor book that you produce!
