I found the narrator a bit dull to be honest, maybe it was the American twang that I found a tad annoying.
The story itself was good. Lots of twists in the plot and plenty of scientific references, which I like to think, if I can understand it, I must be quite intelligent.
I didn't feel any sympathy for the whigeing main Character Dr Nathaniel McCormack, In fact I really disliked him!!
But the plot was engrossing and I found myself guessing, wrongly, about what was happening quite a few times!!

You need to kind of go with the flow with this book..... very strange and drawn out storyline ..... but the main character's dry humour is fabulous. He's definitely a "Quincy meets Rambo" character and the book charts a personal journey story parallel with the twists and turns of the main drama. I would say that you have to really listen to this book - not background listening.... there's a lot of important detail which if missed - leaves you querying stuff half an hour later!
Loses a star for being a little convoluted! Great if you like to twist your brain cells around Virology 102 !
Would you listen to Isolation Ward again? Why?
This book was absolutely one of the best medical thrillers I have ever read/listened to. Yes I would read it again. The characters were well fleshed out and the plot kept me guessing until the end with a double conflict going on. Even guessing "who done it" only gives the reader 1/2 of the conclusion.
What other book might you compare Isolation Ward to and why?
This is on the same order as the Surgeon or the Apprentice by Tess Gerritson.
What does Scott Brick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I think Scott Brick is a fantastic narrator. He brings so much to the characters he reads. His sarcasm and inflections would make any book a great listen.
Any additional comments?
I have purchased Joshua Spanogle"s next book Flawless, I wish he would write more books. This is an author I would love to read more.

If there is a medical thriller cliche missing from this book, I would be quite surprised. I kept telling myself that there must be something original to it, some redeeming twist, and so I listened and listened for h-o-u-r-s in hapless anticipation until my brain began to gel. I can't believe I blew 2 book credits on this turkey. Unless you are an absolute medical thriller junkie who never tires of the same old routine, with the same old villains who stand in the way of saving lives to protect their power, their budgets, their pet theories, yadda, yadda, yadda, and the same old young upstart who knows how to save the human population better than all the professionals of any discipline in the universe, my advice is to save your credits and move on.
