DNF…couldn’t do it. Dull, drawn out, uninteresting.

A beautiful book with a lot of tragedies. Just like life, I guess.

I know this will be an unpopular rating - only 3 stars - but I'm so glad I'm finally finished with this. I don't shy away from long books, as long as they're good. Covenant of Water, although the writing is very good, was simply too long and could as well have been told in 500 pages instead of the 700 . The author went off on descriptive tangents that didn't need to be told and didn't add to the narrative. Sorry Mr. Verghese.

Lovely story, good writing. Interesting and believable characters. Didn't fill me with passion but still looked forward to reading it every night.
