Dr. Manson is not a character that is likeable, even in his noble days. However, as his goals, insecurities, etc. so closely mirror that of humanity, he is a worthy character to know. How many of us have been shifted from our original intent? What relationships have we bruised in the process? What are the consequences that we will regret in the days to come? It is nice to have answers to these questions for a fictional character. One can follow his trajectory and take stock of one's own choices and drive.
This book was first published in 1937, and I can say that the vocabulary used in those days was more robust than today. I have many new starred words in my bedside dictionary. Don't let that be a deterrent, new words can be such fun.
For those that enjoy old movies, I am told this was made as a movie with Robert Donat as its lead. I have not seen it, but I will be watching for it on TCM. I hope that the movie shows his moral decay, followed by his redemption. The movie would be a bit dark and disheartening without the return of his nobility at its end.
of miners in the country and valley where they worked. His untiring passion for the health of these people and more is a true
Inspiration and hope for those afflicted in that era and even now by his unselfish efforts so many strides have taken for these patients
The book is one of redemption, but at a high sacrifice. It is also a good book to understand the difference between the British Medical System and our own. If one is a student of Bioethics, it can serve to help with understanding of how the British Medical System advanced in their views in regards to Physician Duties including those to the patient.
In my opinion, The Citadel should be required reading in Medical Schools and Bioethics courses. Using Konrad's writing school some difficult ideas our much easier to understand. It truth it is the story of every Physician who practices medicine to help his patients, and is not deterred by inconvenience. Finally, anyone who is marrying a physician can learn how it used to be. Unfortunately, most physicians are technicians who treat the patient in only a semi-personal matter, so most of the marital conflict may not occur today.
During my 26 years of medical practice I turned to the book every few years to once again step in another time where a physician experiences the same problems as I did every day. I can longer read the book as it is too much for me to read the best book concerning my profession when I cannot, secondary to health reasons, practice medicine.
One of the top 3 books I have ever read.
