Paul T

Fascinating story.

by Paul T on Jan 16, 2014

A story of the life of a Physician. A boyhood spent in a mission hospital in Addis Abba and his early career as a doctor in the U.S. This is a really good read. The times in the mission hospital are well described and interspersed with clinical histories. Life as a junior physician (intern) in the ... More

Excellent book

by calexom@gmail.com on May 30, 2013

Superb writing. Gripping reading especially for those with some medical background since the author often uses medical terminology. More

Excellent Novel

by Robert M on Dec 15, 2011

This is a very well written, educatonal and interesting novel. Excellent character development. One the best novels I've read in years. My only negative has nothing to do with the book itself, but with it's condition discription by the seller. Every paragraph is marked with an X in pencil, and ... More

Didn't care for this long drawn out story. Could have been told in half the pages. Had to read first half of book before the story got somewhat interesting. Took everything I had not to toss it aside before finishing. More

First rate

by Lynda on Sep 15, 2011

Easy to understand why this book spent so long on the NYT best seller list. The author has honed his writing skills and tells a very good story. More
