I really enjoyed this story of a country doctor just starting his career in Northern Ireland. I wish there were more.
In the good 50%
I think I really liked Sunny who was even more eccentric than the rest of them.
I liked when they went to the snooty people's house and made the husband (who was not really ill) do urine tests all night.
No. I liked that it was in single stories.
Really great narration. Wonderful job John.
This was a lovely character-driven tale filled with anecdotes about the colorful characters in an Irish village. Reminded me a bit of the Jan Karon Mitford series, though with some "saltier" language. The Irish brogue of John Keating really fleshed out the characters, though at times I think there needed to be a bit stronger differentiation between the two doctors speaking.
I'm not looking for hard-hitting drama or anything, but honestly this is like Barry Fitzgerald wearing green and sporting the necessary twinkle in his eye.
I love books. Love to read them, listen to them, and build my stash of them.
I like stories like this, and An Irish Country Doctor is a very enjoyable one. John Keating did a praiseworthy job of performing this story, and his various voices and accents were entertaining and convincing. There is some bad language but I was able to accept that as fitting with the characters.
I'm only about 10% through this book but am finding the characters totally engaging
The James Harriot books. Similar because of the interesting, down-to-earth characters and country settings.
I smiled a lot
