Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese

Written by a physician, this story caused me to gasp out loud many times by the sheer twists and turns of the journey from birth to adulthood of an Ethiopian-Indian twin born in Addis Ababa. It describes the world of doctors saving lives, the political turmoil during the reign of Halie Selassie, human emotion from compassion to hatred - all written in the most detailed and fascinating story that you could ever imagine. Wildly beautiful.
