Anthony Heald is of the camp that a female voice is a breathy voice. He actually suits the characters reasonably well (as they're shallow and cliched).
So disappointed! I realize this book was written in the 1970s, but the author has so little imagination and so little depth and interest in the difference between the sexes it's astounding. It reads like a young boy's fantasy about getting to try on a female body and live out his sexual fantasies in a vaguely liberated environment. With so much potential subject matter to explore, he sticks to prurient, boring cliches and stereotypes, giving his characters no depth and little imagination.
Cutting for Stone is a masterpiece that deals deftly with issues of family, belonging, obligation, and love in ways that are both unexpected and poignant. This is a wonderful story that captivates from beginning to end. Sunil Malhotra does an excellent job with the narration. A must listen!
