The famously hoarse, hesitant, and always interested voice of renowned public radio host Diane Rehm is a trustworthy guide for listeners to her excellent new audiobook about medical aid in dying--allowing terminally ill patients control over the time and manner of their deaths. Rehm is an impassioned and analytical narrator who knows whereof she speaks, having watched her mother and her husband die slowly and painfully even though they wished to be able to hasten their deaths. The audiobook blends personal anecdotes, reportage, and interviews with patients, doctors, advocates, and opponents. The interviews, read by Rehm and several talented narrators, plus Rehm's grandson, are less lively than the on-air originals, yet they still make for compelling listening. This is a persuasive and important audiobook. A.C.S. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2020]
