4.0 out of 5 stars It works!, 13 Jan 2011
The mice in my bathroom ceiling, undaunted by large helpings of poison over many months, appear finally to have left home since the two repellers were installed.

5.0 out of 5 stars A lovely little novel, not just for Afrophiles, 11 Jun 2010
I have just put down, but not before the final full stop and with much regret that there was no more, an entrancing little story set in modern Nairobi, A Guide to the Birds of East Africa by Nicholas Drayson. I've bought copies for my friends and am going to write to Drayson. It cast a spell over me. It's mostly set in a Kenyan Indian gentlemen's club. Peter Robbs, Cambridgeshire

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful novel, a great political study, and a vivid medical narrative, 27 July 2009
This review is from: Cutting for Stone (Paperback)
Verghese brilliantly brings to life the Addis Ababa of the 1960s,'70s and '80s,a time of horrific political convulsions that transformed the ancient hidden Christian African empire of Haile Selassie's day into a Stalinist revolutionary hell under Mengistu, and to his regime's final collapse. Yet this is just the background, to a convincing and beautiful saga of passions and of family upheavals and torments, woven well into accounts of how a group of doctors are connected by relationship, rivalry and skills into a collective of dedicated men and women fighting to save life in a poor and war-torn third world country. It held me to the last full stop. Surprisingly, the book has attracted less attention in Britain than in the US. It deserves better from UK readers.
