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.… (mais)

This is a long meandering book with sections of brilliance. It is especially important for people interested in global health issues. ( )

Not as good as i expected it to be considering what great reviews it got. The writing was good and most of it was interesting but many parts lacked believability and the ending was disappointingly anti-climatic. I wouldn't give it any more than three stars and would think twice about recommending it. However because I like the author's writing style I will probably read some of his other books. ( )

This book is the June selection for our neighborhood book club.

I wasn't surprised to learn that the author is good friends with John Irving. It's been a long time since I've read any Irving, so I can't speak directly to similarities to the two authors, but there was something very reminiscent of Irving in this novel.

As I've grown older, I've become more aware of the gaps in my history knowledge. I still think of nonfiction history books as, for the most part, boring as hell, even though I might find that's not the case if I made an effort to broaden my reading. I do, however, find that I appreciate well-written fiction that deals with historical events. In this case, the novel is set mostly in Ethiopia during time of great unrest and change. Perhaps what I enjoy is getting a sense of how the big machine of history affects the everyday lives of people. And that's what this novel gave me.

Add in the fact that all the major characters are doctors, and I was hooked. I really enjoyed this novel and am looking forward to discussing it with my ladies. ( )

Very long book about a pair of twins in Ethiopia, whose mother (a nun)dies in childbirth and whose father is scarred by her death and abandons them. Raised by loving foster parents in an unstable country, they both become doctors like their absentee father. Highly complex interpersonal relationships are the highlight of this novel. ( )

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
