A friend bought it for me months ago after you and another friend recommended it. It sits at the top of the pile at the bottom of my bed. It's so big it's daunting! And I'm afraid that if I read it in bed it will fall on my face. (KInda joking there.) Now that it's come to my attention, maybe I'll actually pick it up, especially since you recommend it so strongly. Will keep you posted.

Enjoy! Let me know what you think.


Couldn't agree more; wonderful book. I'm reading it now; about a third of the way through. I find its accuracy regarding medical details stunning but then again, it is written by a doc.

Great read.

I have always enjoyed having my history and study of other cultures and times wrapped up in a well-crafted story. Cutting for Stone was part of my stack of winter reading this year. It is elegantly written and I am learning so much about the culture, the people, the history of Ethiopia (also known as Abbysinia). This is really a wonderful book, elegantly written.

In a land of impoverished people, I particularly was struck by the ingenuity with which the doctors and nurses approached medical problems with whatever they had on hand. I agree. Great read.
