However, I did get through one of them. The title is "Cutting for Stone" by Abraham Verghese. You can read a summary on this book page online. It had been a while since a book sucked me in and held me hostage. I was finding myself wishing I was reading instead of playing wooden trains and making breakfast. So of course I thought it was amazing. Here is the thing. I am NOT recommending it to you. I have anxiety about recommending books to people for this reason:
Nothing offends me in literature. Television? yes! Books, no. So I could tell everyone I know to read this book but what if they are disgusted by the medical graphic descriptions? What if the sexual references are too much? The violence? The sadness? The portrayel of women? I love when books touch on every emotion I have and leave me in turmoil about the nature of people. Some might be offended by the messages within the text. So to be safe I just don't tell people what to read. (Or at least not often)
I will tell you I fell in love with every character in this book and when I got to the last page I was very sad it was over.
Nothing else new on the McKown Town side of things. Its the weekend!!!! YEEHAW.
Here are some Z pics to tide you over:
