The Physician Book

The Physician by Noah Gordon, , available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide. For this reason, I tend to review excellent finds - books that have been overlooked or forgotten. The Physician by Noah Gordon is a perfect. “This has been a magic book for me,” said Noah Gordon about his medieval medical-adventure saga, “The Physician,” which he wrote 30 years.

So it's all the more surprising that it wasn't made into a film years ago. A big-screen version has now finally been released — with a German production team. Shortly after it was published in Germany in , the German film producers Wolf Bauer and Nico Hofmann tried to download the film rights. But they were 14 days too late: the rights had already been sold. And then… nothing happened. For more than 20 years. The project lay forgotten in a drawer, and the novel acquired the reputation of being unfilmable. Five years ago, the rights reverted to the author, Noah Gordon. At first the author was sceptical: he had little faith in film producers after the initial, failed attempt. At last, though, the two Germans managed to convince him. However, Gordon had very clear ideas about how the book should be filmed.

It felt like you were reading YA literature, even though some of the episodes were quite rough. Always you felt like it was trying to teach the readers. The writing was simplistic. Only very, very rarely did it encourage the reader to pose philosophical questions. It just presented the facts.

The Physician

By the end of the book I was finally engaged in the characters and had to find out how things would end. However for the majority I was slugging through the pages. Rarely did I laugh.

I cannot remember in fact if I ever laughed I will not be reading another book by this author. There are better books out there that BOTH inform and capture my imagination. My head tells me the book deserves more stars, but I am sticking with my gut feelings. The Physician. Noah Gordon. The Winemaker Historical fiction.
