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.
