WOW! What a great story! I was so stuck on the characters that it was hard to move on to another book after this one! I would recommend it to anyone!
GREAT BOOK! Easy Read. Gives you an inside look into the medical field as well as the lives of many "drug users".
Another fantastic read by Verghese! While it is sad, it is a wonderful tribute to a very specific relationship> Plus, you know from the beginning what the outcome is. He does a great job with this odd topic - knowing just one side of someone can still profoundly affect us. You don't need to know or like tennis to appreciate this book. As always, he uses a medical setting so anyone with an interest in the field will enjoy the dialogue of that environment.
I liked the way the author detailed his relationship with the med student, what they had in common and what differed between them. I was not crazy about the way the author used the med student; the relationship seemed very one-sided to me. Overall a good book w/ good (sad) ending.
