MASH: A Novel About Three Army Doctors

Richard Hooker, read by Johnny Heller. Tantor Audio, $34.99 ISBN 978-1-4526-1767-1
Hooker’s novel—which inspired the eponymous feature film and television sitcom—follows three Army surgeons as they work together in Korea during the Korean War. As casualties rise and the conflict drags on, the surgeons find their own chaotic and darkly funny ways of coping. Veteran narrator Heller skillfully reads this memorable audio edition. Hooker’s classic black comedy features a host of quirky characters, making it the sort of novel that might require multiple narrators for the audiobook. But here, Heller is up to the task by himself. His narration is never showy; instead he uses subtle vocalization to distinguish each character. Heller’s narration captures the book’s irreverence with a conversational, brisk pace—almost as if he were recounting stories with former brothers-in-arms. (Dec.)
