I've been telling everybody to read this superb novel from Abraham Verghese. It is refreshing on every level from the setting (Ethiopia) to its characters (Indian medical workers, twin boys borne of a nun) to a complex web of storylines that covers every emotional base.

The first half of Verghese's book is fabulous. The last third, rushed and predictable. Can we please have a novel where the sexual woman doesn't have to be punished and die? Still, the medical info is woven into the narrative in a credible and interesting fashion. Read full review
