Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese.    I'm not quite sure where to begin with this book--it is so full of rich characters, medical procedures (with perhaps a little more detail than you'd like), political turmoil, etc. Verghese doesn't jump straight into the story, but builds a back story that gets filled in throughout the rest of the novel. This is my favorite book of the year!
