A fantastic book. For once, pretty much all my questions were answered. I loved learning about the characters (Ghosh rocks!) and learning about a country I have very little knowledge. It took me a while to get into it, but I had to finish it. If a book makes me cry and makes me think about it for a while, it's a great book.

Quotes Natalie Liked

Abraham Verghese
“The key to your happiness is to own your slippers, own who you are, own how you look, own your family, own the talents you have, and own the ones you don't. If you keep saying your slippers aren't yours, then you'll die searching, you'll die bitter, always feeling you were promised more. Not only our actions, but also our omissions, become our destiny.”
Abraham Verghese, Cutting for Stone

“Wasn't that the definition of home? Not where you are from, but where you are wanted”
