    One thought on “Der Medicus”

    1. This is one of the most satisfying novels I've read in a long time. One of my rare six-star selections. There's a consistency of quality from cover to cover, owing to the perfect marriage of fine writing and graceful editing. Rob J. Cole is a man who feels called to be a healer. He stays true to that calling, even when surrounded by other physicians who are motivated by greed and glory. He risks and sacrifices all for the chance to study in Persia with Ibn Sina, the greatest physician of the 11t [...]

    2. 4.5* It took several chapters for the captivating and superb story to emerge within these 768 pages. Although the beginning of the book had some interesting events, it tended to drag on with the same theme. Approximately half way into the book it came alive and so begins the arduous adventure of the physician barber Rob J. Cole. Set in the 11th century, Cole is left an orphan at 9 years of age, while his siblings are taken in by other families from British villages not far from his own home. Wit [...]

    4. TEST 2I thought perhaps the easiest way to synthesize my feelings towards this book was to answer the following 5 questions:When did the story take place: The first half of the eleventh century.Who were the central characters: Rob J Cole, his friends and employers and later his wife (Mary Cullen).Where did it take place: England, Scotland, a trip across Europe to Isfahan, Perisa and even a short episode in India!What was the point of the book: I believe the book was written to inform readers in [...]

    5. Noah Gordon is my new favorite author. I read The Physician after I read The Last Jew. Both were phenomenal. The Physician is long, but I read through it quickly. I could hardly put it down! The novel is set in the middle of the eleventh century. Gordon transports readers to another time, setting an ambience that feels authentic to the time period. The novel covers a wide span of geography, beginning in London, taking the reader throughout England and ultimately across Europe through Constantino [...]

    7. I’m a modern military history buff, and until I read this book I hadn’t had the slightest intrest in medieval social portraits. Well, Noah Gordon opened my eyes. I travelled through medieval Europe with Rob J. Cole (as I would later do with his descendant Shaman in America) all the way to Persia. How people dressed, ate, how they lived, the relationship with the Jewish community. The remarkable writing style ensured that the length of the book merely made it more appealing. The longer I spen [...]

    8. Mi querido padre, que es muy amante de la novela histórica, me recomendó hace muchísimo tiempo que leyera este libro, pero viendo las casi 800 páginas que lo componen, me daba "pereza-miedo-vaguería"Pensaba que iba a ser un aburrimiento en mayúsculas por el tiempo en que Noah lo escribió, mucho drama, mucho sufrimiento y tal.Pero terminado, sólo puedo decir:Este libro es una oda a la superación, a la lucha constante de un hombre para conseguir cumplir su sueño, que es dedicarse a la me [...]

    9. I love historical fiction. I love to learn about religion in historical fiction. I loved this book!This book takes place during the 11th century in Europe. It is about a Christian man who disguises himself as a Jew in order to go to a Muslim school of Medicine in the Middle East. It was so interesting to learn how these three major religions interacted with each other during that time in history.There is one problem with the book though: there is a lot of sexually explicit content. Since this bo [...]

    10. When I read it, over ten years ago, I was quite taken with it. Though not taken enough to persue the series further. I also remember ranting about the movie which I've seen a shorter while ago for being lacking in many departments, putting too much emphasis on a love story that didn't exist in the book in that way, and being a lot more "eurocentrist" in who is the hero than the book was.

    11. I found this book when I looked for something similar to Follets "Pillars of the Earth" and I'm really glad I read it. Both the medieval setting in Britain and the fact that you accompany the protagonist for a long period of his life are aspects this book has in common with "Pillars of the Erath". But as the story goes on it also teaches the reader a lot about the islamic and jewish religion at that time, as well as about the medical practices in the medieval era, which is really interresting. A [...]

    12. The Physician is the first book of the excellent trilogy (Cole Family) of Noah Gordon I read. A book that I highly recommended if you like such novels "The Pillars of the Earth" in which generations of different eras are mixed, the history of medicine and exciting travel through exotic places.Spanish version: El Médico es el primer libro de la excelente trilogía del escritor Noah Gordon. Un libro muy recomendable si te gustan las novelas tipo "Los Pilares de la Tierra" en el que se mezclan gen [...]

    13. Noah Gorgon's ability to transport you back into the dark ages is a result of talent and insightful research.This is a story of a young man born in London during the reign of King Knute and his transformation throughout his life to become Hakim, the Persian word for Physician. For a Christian, to become a physician was deemed sacrilegious by the all powerful church, and the Islamic world would kill infidels on sight. The protagonist, Rob J Cole, had to become something altogether different than [...]

    14. Por una especie de trato que hice con mi madre, tuve que leer este libro (que yo misma le regalé hace un año), mientras ella leía uno YA que le diera yo. Aclaro esto porque debo decir que si no fuera por mi madre, por la fuerza de la promesa que le hice y el aliento que me daba poder compartir con ella y contarle lo que iba pasando a cada paso que daba en la historia, no lo hubiera terminado.No he leído muchos libros para adultos, eso lo admito; la razón es enteramente porque en este punto [...]

    15. Historical-fiction adventure travelogue explores 11th century relationship of three major religions. It's a page turner.

    16. DNF page 70 of 618.I was sick of juggling balls. Where are the guts? The blood? The everything?I loved the movie, though.But they have nothing to do with each other.

    17. I generously give 3.5 stars despite the often farcical historical howlers this tale is flooded by because the storytelling is very good. DO NOT READ THIS BOOK and expect to be informed about the era allegedly covered.I had read it many years ago, around age 10 I think and it was this book that generated my lifelong interest in the history of medecine. To be fair to the author I believe the parts covering Judaism and Arabic medicine of the period are broadly accurate but probably no more than tha [...]

    18. I've completed the entire trilogy and highly recommend it. The Physician was the lead-in to a multi-generational story that is well researched and beautifully written. I'm ready to read all three again.

    19. Ler o Físico foi uma experiência única.É um livro que agarra desde a primeira página. Logo no início veio-me á lembrança os factos ocorridos em “Os Pilares da Terra”e mais adiante outros narrados em “A casa da Luz e da Sombra”.São criados laços fortes com o protagonista Rob Cole como se de um nosso parente se tratasse, um jovem rapaz orfão de pai e mãe que fica a braços com os irmãos de quem infelizmente também terá de se separar, mas eis que surge um Barbeiro-Cirurgião [...]

    20. Rob J. tinha um dom.Desde criança que Rob. J. pegava nas mãos dos doentes, e podia sentir se a morte estava próxima. Sentia também uma grande curiosidade em relação às doenças; como surgiam, como evoluíam, o desejo de encontrar a melhor forma de aliviar o sofrimento e, se possível, curar os doentes.Esta vontade levou-o a perseguir um sonho, impossível para muitos. Sem família nem nada que o prendesse a uma Inglaterra atrasada e ignorante, nos primórdios do séc XI, lançou-se à ave [...]

    21. A relatively interesting travelogue and discussion of medical knowledge in the 11th century. Rob Cole, the hero travels from England to Persia to gain better training than he could get in England. His dangerous travels through Europe to Persia are described in rich detail. Along the way he meets a sheep farmer and daughter. He considers marrying her and decides not to. (He will meet up with her later and marry her.) He cannot be admitted to the Persian schools as a Christian so he manages to dis [...]

    22. In Persia in the 11th Century, a surgeon's apprentice disguises himself as a Jew to study at a school that does not admit Christians.

    23. Super unterhaltsame Darstellung des Lebens im Mittelalter. Die Reiseabenteuer sind toll beschrieben und der Umgang zwischen Kulturen und Religionen super interessant. Lässt dann leider zum Ende etwas nach und wird langatmig. Hat mir trotzdem besser gefallen als ich gedacht hätte.

    24. Una obra fantástica, tanto en lo referido a la historia que contiene y su protagonista como a su calidad literaria, pues la tiene, sin abusar de recursos estilísticos pero con un tratamiento del lenguaje placentero y bastante bien estructurado. La manera en que adentra al lector en diferentes culturas, ámbitos religiosos y paisajes es hermosa, quizá no espectacular como otros autores han conseguido, pero sí muy bien desarrollada. El argumento sobre el que se sustenta la trama es especialmen [...]

    25. The Physician can easily be ranked as one of the most racist, prejudicial, erroneous, and contradictory novels, yet to be written on the East (the Others). Islam and Persia are grotesquely sexualized. Domes on the mosques are described as body parts. Inappropriate sexuality is described as acceptable, desirable, “very sensible,” to the Persians, when the king recalls a childhood memory with a tone, frighteningly close to fondness (380). One would question the author’s motives in making the [...]

    26. I had such great hope for this novel and although it started out well, it continued into a quagmire of long and drawn out story telling. While the premise was fascinating, the author just dragged the story out and included many banal details which slowed down the reader and made one feel like they were crossing the desert to a finish line that kept on getting further and further away. I never really fully accepted nor found Rob, the main character, very appealing. Granted his life was hard and o [...]

    27. A boy born in London about the year 1000 becomes orphaned at 9 and is apprenticed to a barber-surgeon/traveling entertainer. The boy learns to juggle and play his part, but he wants to learn how to heal people. As an adult his quest takes him across to Persia to the greatest medical university of the time and back again.Overall, it was a terrific medieval adventure. I did feel it stagnated in the middle, but towards the end it got back on track.

    28. It took me 4.5 months to read this book, since it's the one I've been reading a page or two at a time on my phone whenever I find myself waiting around and needing a book to read. The style of The Physician made it a good one to savor in such a way. It's going to be really strange reading about someone else now when I find myself waiting, which happens a lot by the way.Wow, this story really covers a lot of ground - literally. It starts out with a young orphan in the early 11th century who devel [...]
