Yes. The story is unique, wonderful and extremely well written. The narrator does an excellent job with accents and story telling. I cannot remember a narrator I enjoyed listening more.
I just re-listened to this book for the 3rd time. The story and the characters are all so rich and moving. I'm hoping Mr. Verghese writes another book soon!
Devoted reader and reading teacher. I don't know what I would do without Audible! Lets me do all my chores and still get my "reading" in!
This is a wonderful story full of twists and turns, wonderfully developed characters and a sense of the sacred in ordinary things. I loved this book! In fact, right after finishing it, I went right back to the beginning to listen to the first 1/3 of the book again. I wanted to hear it again knowing what I then knew.
I was never bored with this book. The narrator is wonderful, his use of accents (which can be very tricky) was right on target. It really added to the story. This is an exceptional story told by someone who is obviously in the medical field. But instead of feeling like an outsider, the reader is drawn into that field and feels along with the surgeon. And that is just a tiny part of what makes this redemptive story so special. Great book!
A decent story, but spent a lot of time on medical details that may be interesting if you're in that profession but weren't to me. Well narrated.
If you like books that involve different cultures and world locations, you will like this book. If you love character development and historical novels you will love this book.
Skip it if you like westerns and romance novels. This is the best book I have read/listened to in close to a year (and I read a lot). The narrator did a fantastic job and the story is phenom!
As an entreprenuer, it is hard for me to shut off my brain! It is also hard for me to sit still! I love audibles! I can exercise, work on "chores" , travel and be entertained! Always looking for a good story!
A wonderful novel to hear, the narrator captured the spirit of the characters and I felt I had known each of these remarkable people! Thank you Audibles!
I have lived in Ethiopia for nearly seven years, and I listened to the book while driving through the streets of Adds each day. The book stole my heart and mind, and caused me to reflect on the beauty of life here. I'm sad it is over, and I am waiting for more.
Add my name to the list of listeners who loved this audiobook! I purchased this book based on a recommendation from a friend who read the hard cover. I was not disappointed for a second in the audiobook. The story is captivating and wonderfully read by the narrator. I could not stop listening, even when it was time to get out of the car, or get off the treadmill, or go into the office, etc. There is a reason for the high ratings given this audiobook by Audible members. Loved it!
this story kept me hooked through the whole thing. the characters are well written and read. the story is nothing less than spellbinding. i rarely write a review but this one, i felt deserved special acknowledgement
