Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese

Cutting for StoneCutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Cutting for Stone was nothing what I had imagined at first. The first few chapters reminded me of The Cider House Rules by John Irving, but I soon discovered that the books had nothing in common. The story of Marion and Shiva was hard and tender at the same time. All the characters had flaws and excuses for them. Hema, Ghosh, Matron, Genet, Thomas Stone and even Sister Mary Joseph Praise colored this book with their imperfect lives. We are all humans after all.

The journey was long and the author took many twists and turns to bring it back to closure. All is well... nothing is missing. I enjoyed reading this book!
