I have read every one of Patrick Taylor's books and loved them. However, since I've read them all this was a review of his previous books. For newcomers this would be a great book to read first. For those of us who have read them all - not so good.

Patrick Taylor wins again with this one. A very different book but a must for all Ballybuckleboo fans and those just starting. These short,humorous stories will give you so much insight into what made Dr O'Reilly the warm ,lovable character that he is. Unlike the Country series where it is impossible to put the book down before it is finished this is easy to dip in and out and pick up to read when time is short.

Anyone who works in the medical field, particularly surgical services, will at least enjoy part of this short story collection. Anyone who has Irish roots can relate, and anyone who has a sense of humor will appreciate it.

This is a collection of articles (just a few pages each) written before the Irish County Books. This is not the O'Reilly we have come to know and love, and "Pat" the narrator comes off like a dolt. The stories are humorous anecdotes at best and hard to get invested in because they are so short. A lot of the stories show up in the books later as well. I can also say that Patrick Taylor's writing has come a long way since these were written! I'm kind of sorry i even bought this book, but I am still looking forward to a new chapter of the Irish Country books I love so well.

I have read other Patrick Taylor's work and loved it. I didn't care much for this.

The stories are very short per life as a newspaper column, occasionally repetitive of things in the books, but overall very satisfactory. It can be nicely used as short quick individual reads when one only has a snippet of time but wants to read something enjoyable for a few minutes.
