Cutting For Stone

Cutting For Stone, by Abraham Verghese,  is the book my book club is reading this month.  I actually selected it based on so many good reports from people I know who couldn't put it down.  It will be interesting to see if my BCFriends enjoyed it.  We are a diverse group.

What about you?  Have you read it?  Did you like it?  What were you favorite or least favorite parts?

I liked the part that focused on the family and their relationships best.  The setting, the civil war.... necessary backdrop I know, and important to the author,  but I could skim over those parts.  My taste usually runs more toward simple books or autobiographies, also usually simple, so I had to shift a bit to enjoy this book.  If I read it again I know I could get much more out of it as the details were so "plentimous".

Good book?  Definitely yes.  A page-turner?  Definitely no.

Let me know your thoughts.
