 A Compassionate Story

I loved this book. Verghese was so full of compassion, so obviously pained that the story had a profound effect on me as a reader. I don't have my own copy - I read it from the Public Library here in Barbados. There were times when I felt that some editing was needed - some of the narrative is extended, perhaps too informative - the style of writing, however this may also add to the pathos of the inevitable sad end. This book was written with love, compassion and understanding.
