Overall rating 4. Yes No Thanks for your feedback! Report as inappropriate. This was a real gem of a book. It blended knowledge of medicine, religions, areas of Europe and Asia with an excellent story.
It brought to life a time of repressed learning and the striving for excellence in a era of superstition and distrust.
It truly deserves the acclaim it has received. The characters were made to have human failings but redeemed through trial and error.

Also, the book brought a tremendous gratefulness for NOT living in such a repressed society but sharing the joy of someone that did and survived. A wonderful read filled will colourful characters with enough twists and turns to keep any reader delighted! I can't wait to delve into Shaman … Show more Show less. I liked the story of an ancient time and place. The author adds detail to give one a real sense of what it was like then.
I enjoyed learning how the three religions interacted. The battle detail interested me the least. He teaches the boy how to juggle, to draw caricatures, to tell stories, to entertain a crowd, to sell the nostrum on which they make their living. He also teaches the boy all he knows of medicine—which is little. When Barber dies, Rob takes over his traveling medicine show.
But he is restless, desiring to know more about the ways of medicine. Unfortunately, besides being worlds away, the schools do not admit Christians—and even if they did, no country in Christendom would allow a person with such heathen learning to return. In a moment of epiphany , Rob decides that he shall take on the guise of a Jewish student, so that he can travel to Persia and study at the feet of Avicenna Ibn Sina. This decision carries its own risks: while Jews generally were allowed more freedom in the Muslim world than they were in Christian Europe, Rob would still have to cross Europe, where Jews were routinely faced with blood libels, expulsions, forced conversions and killings.
Here he becomes Jewish in appearance, and travels eastwards with a group of Jewish merchants, learning their ways as best he can. He also meets a young woman called Mary Margaret Cullen, who was traveling with her father, in search of superior Turkish sheep.
The pair falls in love and become occasional lovers, but as Mary, by her father, proposes marriage to Rob, he dismisses her, saying that he needed to study medicine and telling her all his plans.
The Cullens leave the caravan and Rob continues his journey. Part Three: Isfahan[ edit ] Rob arrives in the city of Isfahan , in the heart of the Abbasid Caliphate in present-day Iran , and tries to enter into the school of physicians there. He is not allowed access. He struggles to survive in the city, homeless, while searching for a way to enter the school.
Here he begins the study of medicine—the first formal study he has ever had in his life. At the same time he immerses himself in the life of a Persian Jew.
