批評家のレビュー

"A unique voice that combines insight, humour, and an often surreal style.” (Richard Smith)

あらすじ・解説

Family doctor, Irishman, musician, award-winning author, anarchist and recovering morphine addict, Liam became a columnist for the British Medical Journal in 1994. He went on to write for many major publications, winning a series of prestigious awards; in 2005, he was the first doctor to win Columnist of the Year in the Periodical Publishers Association awards. The book contains a selection of Liam’s best work, from his columns, blogs and short stories. Brilliantly funny, glittering with literary allusion and darkly wicked humour, this book is much more than a collection of stand-alone anecdotes and whimsical reflections, rather a compelling chronicle of the daily struggles - and personal costs - of a doctor at the coalface.

Hard going

I thought I'd love this as am Irish and a doctor. but I found it very hard going. I stuck with it for 4 chapters, waiting for it to get better then gave up. It was just too slow for me.

A rare mix of raw pain and gentle humour

I bought this on kindle but was so pleased I also bought the audiobook, as many of the short chapters are ideal for my commute. The opening chapter is about the author's addiction, raw and painful to listen to, and puts in context the humour of the rest of the book; the humour is obviously the author's escape. Loved this book

Book and narration hard to follow

This book seems to be mainly a reproduction of columns previously written. Not even in chronological order. This coupled with the slow narration made the whole thing hard to follow. I wasn't enjoying it. I'm sure the stories in this book could've been made more entertaining with the style of another writer perhaps or the author writing in a different style.

Not the book for me.

Couldn't get into this book. I think it was due to the fact that nearly every patient is called 'Joe'. (either that or Joe is very ill / a hypochondriac). Narrator has a strong Irish accent which I sometimes found difficult to concentrate on, especially whilst driving. Didn't finish the book I'm afraid.
