Cutting for Stone isn't too hard. It's straightforward and action-driven, it'll keep your feet moving one in front of the other, and it'll entertain you along the way. You may even be delighted by the Ethiopian terms, which are all clearly explained, and you may feel like you've learned a lot after you finish this climb.
