CUTTING FOR STONE

In the library the other day, this novel by Abraham Verghese came back with the returner raving about it. Best book she'd read in years. So I got it and have just started it.

I am thinking, here at the beginning, of THE KITE RUNNER because of the way it unfolds and all the details about a foreign land.

I am also thinking I'd do well to ask what kind of book the recommending person enjoys before snatching one up.

  1. I LOVED The Kite Runner because...I love to travel to distant lands and visit other cultures without going there. Not to mention how fantastically beautifully written TKR was. So I'd probably love the book, thanks for the tip.

  2. You'll like this one, too. I'm about a fourth of the way through and the prose (not the story) is remarkably similar to The Kite Runner IMO.

    I'm trying to get through soon but...
