it was amazing

Diana's rating: 5 stars

After reading and loving this book I felt like I did after I read "Memoirs of a Geisha." It wasn't a setting (Ethiopian hospital) or character (lifelong medical students) I would seek out, but oh, the rewards! Verghese writes some of the most vivid characters you are likely to find, against the backdrop of a historical setting many Americans are unfamiliar with. The medical jargon was clear enough for me to understand, and while many things are tied together at the end, it is not in too neat a package.
