This is not only a fantastic book but a sensational narration as well! I was initially put off by his female character's voices, I was terribly annoyed and felt they were unrealistic, but I eventually grew to abide it and then appreciate his talent. Do not be put off by fear of medical jargon or the book's length (I myself love longer books)-this book will keep you on the edge of your car seat! It is fascinating and rich in detail. The character's are all well rounded and very real. I cannot wait for another book by Abraham Verghese!
Beautifully narrated. Although this book was hard to get through the first very long trauma of birth and death, I am glad I perserved. What a thoughtful, brilliantly themed book. Medical detail was just that, 'detailed,' but you can rush through that as i didnt find it imperative to the story too much. Made me smile and cry and characters were so well defined, felt like I knew them personally. Buy it! you won't be sorry!
An epic story both totally engrossing and beautifully written. The narrator does an excellent job of conveying the emotions described.
I bought this book because of all the rave reviews, but I was unable to finish it. I found the story to be plodding and rather gruesome. On the plus side, I did like the narrator.
Excellent reader for what is likly the best book of the decade, a long book that is hard to put down or stop listening to. I have this in both audible and book form and enjoy them both
I have had my audible.com membership for about a year now, got it to make it through a cross-country move. Listened to The Help for my first choice and have been a little disappointed with all others since then.... until I came to Cutting for Stone. Amazing! Loved the story, the characters, the reader, everything about it! It is long but definitely worth the listen.
Th narrator is excellent, and the book is truly amazing. What a wonderful cast of characters and plot. This book goes into my list of the top 20 books I have ever read.
This story is enthralling, and beautifully told. Sunil Malhotra's narration has a lovely cadence that is almost musical in quality. I could hardly stop listening. Highly recommend it!
I loved everything about this book. The narration was excellent. I fell in love with the characters and will carry them with me for for life.
I didn't think I would fall in love, but I did. A read for a book group, I decided to listen to what I thought would be a dull read. Ha! I fell right into it and didn't surface until the end. It haunts me still.
