really liked it

Very good book! I was surprised I handled the medical/surgery descriptions so well. It is a very good page-turner, it made me learn a little more empathy for those in hard situations, and I learned a little bit about the hard life many face in Ethiopia. It's cool how the end comes together even if it is rather tragic. My favorite quote is:

"'Seize the day! What matters is this moment!' Most of us can't go back and make restitution. We can't do a thing about our should haves and our could haves. But a lucky few men like Ghosh never have such worries; there was no restitution he needed to make; no moment he failed to seize. Now and then Ghosh would grin & wink at me across the room. He was teaching me how to die, just as he taught me to live." p 424
