Cutting for Stone (Vintage) by Abraham Verghese
Cutting for Stone (Vintage)

AZ reader, January 2, 2013

Cutting for Stone kept this reader on a roller coaster of emotions from squeamish, to "Oh! No! moments, to horror, to tears. A truly great writer who "shows, not tells" the story. Abraham Verghese has a talent as a writer that should bring me quickly to any other books he writes.

The House of Sand and Fog by Andre Dubus III
The House of Sand and Fog

AZ reader, January 1, 2010

When I started reading this book...I didn't care for it...but found that I was soon empathizing/sympathizing with whatever character (except the cop) was in the chapter I was reading. I still wasn't sure I really enjoyed the book when I finished it...but it has hung with me for 5 years. Often I'll read what I consider a great book, but it fades from memory except perhaps the title. Not so with The House of Sand and Fog.
