Patrick Taylor Book Reviews:

I had never heard of this author prior to buying several at an estate sale. What a great find!

One of the main characters, Dr. Fingal O’Reilly comes across initially as a bumbling idiot who just slides by in his diagnosis and treatment of patients. As you continue to read, you realize he has a very distinct way of doing things. He is a very good Dr. to the people and very kind to everyone that deserves it.

The characters in these books are Irish and have a different way of speaking and thinking about life than we do here in the US. It is a very entertaining read and I look for to reading the next in the series.

These books remind my of the books by James Herriot, but a lot better!

Would recommend these books to anyone!
