Review - An Irish Country Doctor by Patrick Taylor
Title: An Irish Country Doctor
Series: Irish Country
Author: Patrick Taylor
Publisher: Tom Doherty Associates
Release Date: February 2007
What is it About?
Newly made doctor Barry Laverty meets with the current doctor, of a made up town called Balleybucklebo, Fingal Flahertie O’Reilly. He is to be an intern for Dr. Reilly who introduces him to the whole town, in which some seem somewhat insane.
Dr. Barry Laverty is just out of medical school in search of a practice to work at. He comes across Dr. O’Reilly’s request for a intern in a (made up) town called Balleybucklebo, Ireland. It seems a small town such as this has several different kinds of people, the kooks, and the actual sick.
I believe this is first book in the series although I do not think you need to read in order because the first one I read was the 4th? Irish Country Girl. I was hoping that the story was going to have more of irish magical feel like Irish Country Girl but it did not.
I still love the quirkiness of the characters and the town. The only thing is because the book has no real plot it is hard to describe what the story is about without giving spoilers.
