What does Chris Andrew Ciulla bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Chris Andrew Ciulla brings life to these characters vividly and energetically. I enjoyed his performance, he has a fresh, youthful sound, which was just right for the main character, Dr. Parks. He does a fine job of distinguishing between the many characters and keeping their voices consistent, as well as making the female characters sound believable. He handles the 1890s idiom perfectly. After getting used to his rhythm I saw it all in my mind's eye--which is exactly what I want from an audiobook.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Saw 101: Snake Oil
Any additional comments?
The book was compelling and interesting. I was immersed in the story after the first few chapters, and I cared about what happened to the characters. I would have liked a little more sense of place, as I lived 30 years in the Pac NW, and I only got a little bit of description--but that's a matter of personal taste.

What made the experience of listening to Race for the Dying the most enjoyable?
Understated action and a brash young Doc moving into the 20th century - what's not to like? Am looking forward to next in series. This is my kind of book.
