OMG, just finished this book. Sadly. I did NOT want it to end. Abraham Verghese is such an excellent writer, I ate every word on every page.

I read somewhere that finishing a good book is almost like losing a friend.

A much more eloquent way of describing something I felt a couple of times when I was reading regularly.

aesir, these days I have decided I'm too old to waste my precious reading time on bad books! So....if I don't care for the first chapter, I don't bother with the rest.

My book club read this book. It was a really good read. I got a little frustrated with some of the characters, but enjoyed it so much. I was reading this during my WH affair.

This is on my list of must reads. So glad you loved it! I'm looking forward to it.

lovedyoumore, when we get frustrated with characters, I guess that means we are gettng very involved in the story? I can recall older ladies getting upset with the behaviour of their favourite soap characters!

I actually just finished Cutting two weeks ago, Fantastic book.

I found I was also frustrated with charaters which, I assume, was because I was really involved with the story and the characters were "real" and thus fallable and human.

Highly reccommended.
