The Human Trial
Welcome to The Human Trial Book Tour by Audrey Gale Audiobook Tour hosted by RABT Book Tours.
About the Book
Dr. Randall Archer is a misfit….
….in the brutal blue-collar home where he grew up.
….as a 16-year-old escaping to college, then medical school, on a full scholarship to Harvard.
….in the highest echelons of Boston society, where the woman he marries and the blueblood research partner with whom he shares his laboratory belong.
Even Archer’s brilliance as a pathologist catapults him into direct and dangerous conflict with the medical establishment he fought so hard to join.
As the Great Depression presses down around him, Archer teeters at the edge of a precipice. He must choose between his hard-won career and the sacred oaths he took as a doctor and scientist—before all his choices are lost forever.
Review for The Human Trial
Though I felt the plot was well thought out, it was a slow listen for me and didn’t consider it a thriller. By the end, you can see where each tidbit was fed to us with care.
I did like the characters and the way they developed throughout the story. What I didn’t like was the interchanging of the character names. Sometimes Randy, other times, Randall, then lets throw his last name, Archer, into the mix. Same with his lab partner. With these names alone being used A LOT, it led to unnecessary confusion.
Overall, it’s a good story about a man fighting for the career he dreamed of (and achieved) and life getting in the way. I’m never a fan of a book ending on a cliffhanger and this is no exception. I understand it’s a lead-in to the next book but please wrap up the story. The narrator was good but his accent took some getting used to. I could have done without some of the cheesy sound effects.
About the Author
Audrey Gale long dreamed of being a writer, but never anticipated the circuitous road she’d take to get there. After twenty-plus years in the banking industry, she grew tired of corporate gamesmanship and pursued her master’s in fiction writing at the University of Southern California. Her first novel, a legal thriller entitled The Sausage Maker’s Daughters, was published under the name A.G.S. Johnson. Her second, The Human Trial, is the first book in a medical thriller trilogy inspired by Gale’s own experiences with the gap between traditional medicine and approaches based on the findings of the great physicists of the 20th Century. Both The Sausage Maker’s Daughters and The Human Trial incorporate Gale’s fascination with historical and scientific research, and always with women finding their places. Gale lives in Los Angeles with her husband and dogs where she is found hiking the Santa Monica Mountains every chance she gets.
