When I returned my library books a couple weeks ago, I looked around the new release section for a book to read. (There was nothing I hadn't read in my current favorite authors, and I didn't really want to hit the 1001 books list, I wanted something light and fun) Those of you who have known me for any length of time know I do have a weakness for Irish things. Books that take place in Ireland as well. After looking at several possibilities, this book caught my eye, so I checked it out.
It was a great light read, nothing heavy in the storyline. Great descriptions of Ireland, and although there was a glossary at the end, it was easy enough reading the conversations and I didn't look at it until a quick perusal at the end. I did want to smack Barry upside the head a few times for being whiny. I loved Fingal the older doctor, Kitty his new girlfriend from his past, and Kinky the housekeeper was great.
I liked it enough that I requested a copy of An Irish Country Doctor to be sent over from another library.
