El Medico Noah Gordon. Yes, it was actually quite revealing, but only to a point.
It went on too long. This can be said in relation to many, many points. You learn how to correctly place phylacteries according to the Jewish faith, how to prepare kosher food, how to make the the medicines then available Parts, for example how the school in Isfahan, Persia was organized, were very interesting.
Probably different parts will appeal to different readers, but to no one will ALL of it be interesting. Let me repeat, it was very didactic, to a fault! The language was clear and informative, but that was it - no sparkle what so ever!!!! I guess that is my biggest complaint.
It felt like you were reading YA literature, even though some of the episodes were quite rough. Always you felt like it was trying to teach the readers. The writing was simplistic. It seems that he believed that proceeding to Scotland himself would essentially mean the end of his medical practice.

He risks and sacrifices all for the chance to study in Persia with Ibn Sina, the greatest physician of the 11th century. The story is especially fulfilling because it comes full circle.
Rob returns to London after many years in foreign lands. Through comparison with those who have never left home, he realizes how he has grown in compassion, tolerance, and critical thinking. He's so far ahead of the doctors around him that he doesn't fit in, but he does finally find a place where he can put down roots and be surrounded by a loving family and community.
This is a sweet relief for him after having been an orphan and an outsider since the age of nine. I read the final paragraph of the book three times in a row with tears in my eyes.

There are no spoilers in it, so here is that paragraph: The extra sense, the healer's sensitivity, never abandoned him. Whether he was called lonely in the night to a bedside or hurried of a morning into the crowded dispensary, he could always feel their pain. Hastening to struggle with it, he never failed to know--as he had known from the first day in the maristan --a rush of wondering gratitude that he was chosen, that it was he whom God's hand had reached out and touched, and that such an opportunity to minister and serve should have been given to Barber's boy.
That is a tragedy beyond reckoning. View all 4 comments. Jul 07, Frances rated it really liked it.

Wit 4. With a difficult and demanding road to travel once he reaches manhood his one true desire takes hold; to become the best physician he could possibly be. Travelling far from his homeland Cole meets several individuals who help him as he struggles to achieve his quest. As the story continues to unfold, his new acquaintances begin to form a strong bond of real and lasting friendship enhancing the storyline significantly.
If the book had pages trimmed from the first half, and some pages from the remaining half it would be a true masterpiece.
Having managed to carry on through the first half of this substantial book through to the end, it was well worth the journey. View all 68 comments.

The book does this well. You do learn what all aspects of life were like. You get the details concerning food, clothing, hardships and joys, both pagan and religious Christian, Jewish and Muslim beliefs and how medical problems were viewed, treated and looked upon by various groups. How was the book written:: OK, here is the problem! It was didactic.
There were so many details that you were swamped. A chapter was spent on how one can learn to juggle Yes, it was actually quite revealing, but only to a point.

Always you felt like it was trying to teach the readers. The writing was simplistic. Only very, very rarely did it encourage the reader to pose philosophical questions.
It just presented the facts. By the end of the book I was finally engaged in the characters and had to find out how things would end. However for the majority I was slugging through the pages.
Rarely did I laugh. I cannot remember in fact if I ever laughed I will not be reading another book by this author. There are better books out there that BOTH inform and capture my imagination. My head tells me the book deserves more stars, but I am sticking with my gut feelings.
Most of the time was thinking this book is OK. That is how I felt, not how I was thinking. The point of this review is to try and figure out for myself and perhaps others why I felt the way I did. View all comments. Dec 28, Salma rated it liked it.
It is the story of the British orphan Rob. J from the 11th century who became a barber-surgeon, who dreamt to study medicine under Avicenna supervision. This was a condemned matter and a crime punished by death, at times when heretics were burnt. He disguised as a Jew to manage the matter. He made you live everything in the novel with him for the first time… Everything seemed bizarre and different, frightening and severe, rough and disgusting, charming and astonishing… The novel presents variety: It seemed nobody like that but the Jew; the Jew was the only one who seemed loving to his family, enlightened, peaceful, high-minded, while the Muslim was the lewd and wild.
You wonder how such people made a civilization, medicine and maristan? Well, it seemed to Rob that it was not more than imitating the Greeks. Eventually, of course as usual, the European Rob J. I know it is almost impossible to read a book or novel about Orient or Muslims without this arrogant tone. However, in this novel it seemed extra dissonance, because it was the tone of a 20th century man, i.
Regardless what mentioned before, it is an exotic breathtaking novel, soaked with adventures. The writer is a real storyteller. I want to add a piece of information I've discovered recently, that it is not true what the novel said about that there was no anatomy of the human body in medieval Islamic society, and it was considered as a crime, because for examples there were the contribution of Ibn al-Nafis who described the movement of blood through the pulmonary transit, and made illustrations, Abd al-Latif al-Baghdadi who described the bones of the lower jaw and sacrum, and others.
Well I know that novels are not authentic sources of information, because they are imagined, however they make you want to know more about the subject.
