    1. The Citadel is the morality tale of the initially idealistic Scottish Doctor Andrew Manson who starts off working in the mining towns of the South Wales valleys (view spoiler)[ where he makes liberal use of explosives to remedy public health nuisances (hide spoiler)] before descending into the vanity fair of fashionable London doctors, who specialise in conditions which cost a lot of money to treat, where he reaches a crisis point before returning to the narrow path of virtue.In the Welsh Valley [...]


    2. Oh this is wonderful story - a 1937 publication concerning primarily, the life of a young doctor investigating lung disease rife amongst miners and social conditions in mid Wales. Fully recommended.


    3. This book was written in 1937. It is about an idealistic young doctor who starts off poor and has a great heart for the poor and the sick. He marries a wonderful young teacher named Christine and they are very happy, not having much materially, but rich in love and plans for the future. They begin their life in the mining town of Wales, where he begins research involving the men with breathing problems due to their exposure to the dust in the underground mines.They eventually move to London. He [...]


    4. Wonderful. I picked this up for $1 at a used book store. I didn't recognize the title or the author but figured, what do I have to lose, it's only a buck, right?Once I started reading, it all came back to me. I read this twenty years ago and in my mind I lumped it with Francis Brett Young's "Dr. Bradley Remembers" which is another great book, high on the list for a re-read, and very similar in style and subject matter to "Citadel".You know a good book when twenty years later you still know all t [...]


    5. Instead of telling you what the story is like, I'd rather tell you what I felt like when reading it. My heart intertwined with the main character's heart in a firm grasp, Cronin made the character come alive for me - I felt each little bit of happiness, stressfulness and sadness in those droplets of ink. The main character's personality growth was astounding. I recommend this book especially to everyone considering a career as a doctor.


    6. This is the story of a young country doctor life and how he struggled to become a successful doctor in a big city.Andrew Manson, a young Scotsman man, started his professional life in the mines of Wales where he worked in a tough condition by paying part of his salary to a senior and reputed local doctor. He dedicated part of his life studying lung diseases which was the primary disease found in most of the local miners.In order to improve his career, he moves to London with his wife - a school [...]


    7. Арчибълд Кронин разказва лекарска приказка в "Цитаделата": knigolandiafo/2009/10/bОще на 7-8-та страница се усетих, че съм чел тази книга, но кога и до днес не мога да си спомня. Въпреки това имах усещането, че съм я харесал и затова си я дочетох чинно. В книгата се разказва историята на д-р [...]


    8. Thành trì là cuộc chiến giữa những cám dỗ về tiền bạc, danh vọng với một bên là thành trì của lương tâm và đạo đức con người. Liệu có bao nhiêu thành trì có thể trụ vững?Cốt truyện hay, tình tiết hấp dẫn. Thực sự ấn tượng với bốn nhân vật chính Andrew, Denny, Hope và Christine. Đây thật sự là một cuốn sách hay về nghề y.P/s: Sách thư viện tuy cũ ơi là cũ nhưng lại có một mùi thơ [...]


    9. This is the third time I have read this book and enjoy it more each time. Cronin is a master at character development and a pleasure to read. This book illustrates clearly the Thomas S. Monson quote, "Decisions determine destiny." Yet, the author's confidence in the basic goodness of most people leaves both the characters and the reader with hope and not despair.

    11. Back in the day when I was a kid in hostel The principal reason I treasured going back home for the holidays was to pounce on the mostly untouched private library of a crazy uncle. The books he owned, although withered with the passage of time, were absolute treasures to possess. The Citadel was one of those books. My mother is a doctor and somehow this book - and it's subsequent movie adaptation - had stayed with her all her life since she'd been first introduced to it. Therefore it came highly [...]


    12. Una historia colosal.Este libro, que cayó en mis manos por una casualidad más, me ha sorprendido demasiado. No me voy a centrar en cómo está escrito, sino únicamente de la trama. Siempre había querido leer algo así. Por cierto, estoy puntuando muy bien últimamente, pero soy sincero con cada una de mis críticas. Parece que tengo una buena racha encontrando lecturas.Ambientado hace poco menos de un siglo, La Ciudadela describe los deseos de un joven médico que, acabada la carrera, se lan [...]


    13. this novel was simply a cornerstone in the development of my character, life, and principles, the personal conflicts a young doctor faces described by the very interesting style of A.J.Cronin can take your breath away and make you eager for the ending and even after that you will be indulged for a while in the acts of a poor young doctor and if what he did was right or wrong !!!


    14. Не случайно Цитаделата е класика.Темата е актуална и днес.Очарована съм, много добър роман.


    15. This book is about a young Scottish doctor, Andrew Manson, who grew up poor and went to school on scholarship who begins his career in the year 1921 in a small village in South Wales. The story tells of his struggles as a young doctor practicing with old doctors who haven't opened a text book since their school days and won't change their ways, while many of the young doctors cheat their patients to make more money. He begins the story as an idealistic man with strong moral values, a disdain for [...]


    16. Нищо не се е променило от времето на Андрю Менсън. Но малко са идеалистите в наше време, за съжаление, особено пък тези с благородната лекарска професия .Да, стила е архаичен, но книгата пак ми хареса , написана е увлекателно.Припомни ми важните неща, към които героят на Арчиб [...]


    17. Old fashioned novel about medical ethics of a young doctor ,around 1924. There is a morale dillema about treatment and profit, that still exists . But the heroe was unlicable to me, for he was unfair to his wife, captius, and overpedanting to monay.


    18. Thành Trì, nếu xét về khả năng diễn đạt qua lời kể, qua câu văn, thì thiếu kịch tính, hay các đoạn sâu sắc đánh động tâm lí con người. Các cảnh gây xúc động trong truyện được miêu tả khá chung và khá vội vã, truyện khá lê thê ở đoạn giữa còn khúc cuối thì lại đẩy đi quá nhanh, thắt gút được tháo vội, chưa có được giả đáp thích đáng. Tại sao Andrew phạm lỗi cũng nói là ít h [...]


    19. Absolūtā klasika. Viena no manām mīļākām grāmatām. Biju lasījis jau kaut kad jaunībā, bet tagad pavisam cits smeķis. Grāmata par jaunā ārsta karjeru un personīgo dzīvi Velsā pagājušā gadsimta sākumā. Netīšām nācās salīdzināt ar Bulgakova "Jaunā ārsta piezīmes". Bulgakovs vairāk ir atainojis jaunā ārsta profesionālo izaugsmi, savukārt Kronins ļoti krāšņi parāda gan profesonālo karjeru, gan personīgās dzīves līkločus. Grāmatas četrās nodaļās j [...]


    20. You know you're reading an old book when you read about "gay meals" (among other outdated phrases). According to the cover, this was adapted by Masterpiece Theatre and I can see why: it's very much their sort of story, almost epical in scope.Andrew is a poor Scotsman, newly graduated from medical school. He finds a position as an assistant in the mining valleys of Wales - of course, the system is unfair, but he's a great doctor and makes friends within the community. Then he's pushed out, and mo [...]


    21. A very interesting read. The moral of the story will always be relevant – a young, poor and idealistic doctor is dragged into the world of moneymaking and, of course, there’s a high price to pay to go back to being an honest professional and a decent human being. It’s written in the 1930s but I just couldn’t get over of how the character of the wife, Christine, was treated not just by the doctor but by the author. That and the easiness with which some complex problems were resolved put m [...]


    22. La lettura di questo romanzo conferma l’opinione che mi ero fatta con E le stelle stanno a guardare, che ho decisamente preferito rispetto a questo. Cronin è senza dubbio un buon narratore e ha diversi temi importanti da mettere in gioco, ma gli manca quel quid per rendere davvero incisivi i propri scritti, soprattutto quando abbandona il mondo dei meno abbienti e si occupa delle classi sociali più elevate, come in questo caso. Inoltre, e nessuno me lo toglie dalla testa, aleggia sempre un v [...]


    23. I never read any of the novels written by A.J Cronin before but after reading this book, I was impressed. This book teaches about moral and ethical side of medical profession. Ending was also brilliant. I highly recommend this book.




    24. Es una novela excelente que demuestra los problemas del gremio medico de la época y que sin embargo son muy actuales. Creo que todo medico y personal de salud debe leerlo.


    25. Andrew Manson, fresh out of university, is ready to take on the world. Full of zeal and passion to change the world of medicine for the better, Dr. Manson has a desire to research and treat pulmonary disease, specifically tuberculosis, that seems to be the culprit especially among the mining population.In this novel the reader follows Andrew Manson along his path from one disappointment to another, until he finally caves in to the draw of materialism and for a while, loses his dream. Will he eve [...]


    26. Non sono riuscita a dare tutte e 4 le stelle a questo libro, ma c'è molto vicino, diciamo che gli darei 3 stelle e mezzaTutto questo perchè, forse, mi sono fatta troppo coinvolgere dal protagonista, il dott. Manson. Per tutta la prima parte del romanzo l'ho amato e ammirato. Mi dicevo: finalmente una società meritocratica! Finalmente, chi si sbatte per ottenere dei risultati, anche in mezzo a mille difficoltà, anche quando sembra impossibile uscirne vincitori, ce la fa!E poi, Cristina: adora [...]


    27. Đoạn kết buồn quá nhưng để trả cho cái giá của Menson thì chắc cũng đủ, chỉ tội Corixitin chứng kiến mọi thứ thay đổi ở người mình yêu thương nhất gần như 180 độ, đầy cam chịu để rồi đến lúc tìm được lại hướng cũ tiến về thiên đường hằng mong ước thì lại phải rời khỏi thế gian, dù đoán trước được nhưng vẫn buồn cho chị và cho Menson, cho những người ở lại. Sách v [...]


    28. This is a very thought provoking and engaging read about a poor young man who starts of in medicine, learning a lot by on the job training in early 1920's Wales. It is both a love story, a life story and a story about ethics and morality. The reader is steered to what is right, but the characters aren't always, which is much like life. It is also particularly interesting to see how both far we've come in medicine and health care, and yet still how much remains the same! Greed verses honesty will [...]
