Marion and Shiva Stone are twin brothers born of a secret union between a beautiful Indian nun and a brash British surgeon at a mission hospital in Addis Ababa. Orphaned by their mother's death in childbirth and their father's disappearance, bound together by a preternatural connection and a shared fascination with medicine, the twins come of age as Ethiopia hovers on the brink of revolution. Yet it will be love, not politics -- their passion for the same woman -- that will tear them apart and force Marion, fresh out of medical school, to flee his homeland. He makes his way to America, finding refuge in his work as an intern at an underfunded, overcrowded New York City hospital. When the past catches up to him -- nearly destroying him -- Marion must entrust his life to the two men he thought he trusted least in the world: the surgeon father who abandoned him and the brother who betrayed him.… (plus d'informations)

My tears flowed uncontrollably when Shiva died. Shiva is usually narrated and seen from the perspective of Marion but you know he would have deemed his death worthy if his brother lived. He is a very interesting character, and I wish Verghese had given him more airtime. In contrast, the main character, Marion, seemed ordinary and even petty. He couldn't let go of his brother's betrayal and he admitted honestly that if he were in Shiva's shoes, he may not have donated half his liver. It is when we finished the story that we understand what Marion said in the story's beginning - that it is only with the telling of the story that his rift with Shiva can be healed. It is his redemption. ( )

Such a beautiful book. A world I knew nothing about is brought vividly to life in this amazing story. The book had been recommended by several people and I was daunted by its length (though i listened to the audiobook). This vast novel spans several lives, lifetimes, locations and gives us the story of twin brothers and the world that created them. There are some graphic medical descriptions but those add to the authenticity and beauty of the work. Don't be put off by its length or depth. If you take the time to savor this incredible novel and you'll carry it with you always. ( )

I think this might be a very good book. I couldn't continue with it because of the medical and surgical details, which I find disturbing. I'm just not a fan of medical details. Since the story is about a family of doctors, I decided to let it go. ( )

I loved the story yet some parts of the book I did not like. It took awhile to get to the story which made it hard to keep reading. I did like the medical side of it. It gave me a new perspective of surgeons. I do hope they make it into a movie. I believe it would make a better movie.

This book had it all-Romance, Mystery, Family Drama-heartbreak, love, and war.

It is the story of Marion and Shiva Stone-twins born to an Indian Nun and an English Doctor at an Ethiopian Hospital called Missing (because the Ethiopians could not pronounce Mission). Their mother dies, their father leaves and they are swept into the arms of Hema, an Indian Doctor who loves them the minutes she holds them. Her love for the twins leads her to the love of a man, Gosh another doctor, who adores her. The story Verghese weaves of the family left me laughing and crying.

The POV is Marion's, from childhood in the world of Haile Selassie-through teen-age angst and then adulthood. Verghese can get a bit long winded in some of his passages, but he connected me to these characters so deeply I was able to overlook (and skim a bit I admit) that.

I never give a book 5 stars unless I can recommend it to all. There is violence, rape, a lot of dying- but considering the time and place it is set in, the story could not be told without it. So rounded down to 4 1/2 stars - but I am sorry it had to end. ( )

Cutting for Stone - the phrase is from the Hippocratic oath - is about twins born joined at the head, in a mission hospital in Addis Ababa half a century ago. Their mother, a nun from Madras, does not survive the birth. Their father, a British surgeon called Thomas Stone, cannot bear the loss and flees, so Marion and Shiva are raised by two Indian doctors in the hospital where their parents worked; both become surgeons.

And because I love this life
I know I shall love death as well
The child cries out when
From the right breast the mother
Takes it away, in the very next moment
To find in the left one
Its consolation.
-- Rabindranath Tagore,
from Gitanjuli
