I don’t know who recommended this, but I downloaded the sample when someone told me about it. Its a great book. it’s a saga, maybe sentimental, interesting because of its depth about Ethiopia and medicine. One reviewer called it ‘ecstatic realism’. Anyway I loved it. I’d hate the movie, I imagine it would be a manipulative tear jerker. The book transcends that.
