Country Doctor by Michael Sparrow

This memoir is a collection of stories of a country GP and though most of them seem slightly unbelievable they are true!

From the ridiculous stories which one finds hard to believe true, to the self derision where the doctor wonders what he is doing in this profession, the book is a bit disjointed and rambling and though at most times funny it was not a book which actually held my interest.

I was disappointed that for the most part it seemed as if medical students missed classes or were too hungover to follow these classes. Dented my appreciation of doctors found in this story though right now my appreciation of all medical professionals are at its very height.

  1. I love memoirs so I'm disappointed to see this one's disjointed.

  2. This does sound disappointing. Probably not a book I would enjoy much.
