AudiobooksNow review by Jennifer on 2013-06-23 12:16:26

As a somewhat jaded reader, its unusual for a book to touch me emotionally, but this book did it this is the only book that ever inspired me to write a review! It has a great story line, fascinating details about diseases we dont see in America as well as various surgical procedures, and wonderfully poignent interaction between the characters and their world. I had only a vague idea of where Ethiopia even was before I started this, but as the story developed I found myself going to the internet to hear their local music, read more about their history, and learn about this unique culture. Its one of the best books Ive read in a long time, and Im going to give this as a Christmas present to my parents, who also love an intellectually stimulating plot with characters you remember long after the last page is turned.

AudiobooksNow review by Jane on 2013-09-19 16:31:20

This is the longest audio book I have ever heard19 CDs. That said, it was definitely worth it. I really cared about the different generations of doctors in Ethiopia and the United States. The characters are so well developed, I really cared about them and felt like I knew them.
