Présentation de l'éditeur

Bilbury Chronicles is the first of a series of books (all available on Amazon as Kindle books) describing the adventures (and misadventures) of a young doctor who enters general practice as an assistant to an elderly and rather eccentric doctor in Devon, England. When he arrives in Bilbury, a small village on the edge of Exmoor where central heating is a log fire in the middle of the room and where doors are never locked, the young doctor doesn't realise how much he has to learn. But he soon finds the extent of his ignorance when he meets his patients. There is Anne Thwaites who gives birth in the middle of a field and local rogue Thumper Robinson who knows a good many tricks that aren't in any textbooks. And there is Mike Trickle, a TV show host, who causes great excitement when he buys a house in the village. The young doctor's employer is elderly Dr Brownlow who lives in a house that looks like a castle, drives an old Rolls Royce and patches his stethoscope with a bicycle inner tube repair kit. The local pub, the Duck and Puddle, is run by Frank, the inebriate landlord, and the village shop is run by Peter who also drives the local taxi, delivers the mail and acts as the local undertaker. There is Miss Johnson, the receptionist with a look that can curdle milk; Mrs Wilson, the buxom district nurse and Len, her husband who is the local policeman with an embarrassing secret. And there is Patsy.
The author of the Bilbury series of seven books, Dr Vernon Coleman, is a qualified doctor who has written over 100 books which have sold more than two million copies in hardback and paperback in the UK and been translated into 24 languages. Many of his books have been bestsellers. His novel Mrs Caldicot's Cabbage War has been turned into an award winning movie and his medical books include Bodypower and How To Stop Your Doctor Killing You - both of which have been huge international bestsellers. Dr Coleman has written columns for many of the world's leading newspapers and magazines and has presented hundreds of television and radio programmes.
What the papers say about Vernon Coleman and his books:
The tales he tells are truly uplifting and thought-provoking. They are a breath of fresh air in a troubled world and are also very amusing. The tale of the village cricket match in Bilbury Revels is the funniest thing I have ever read. Be warned -don't attempt to read it in a public place. - People's Friend
Vernon Coleman writes brilliant books - The Good Book Guide
Truthful, well observed and consistently readable - Daily Telegraph
His dry humour transforms doctor-patient encounters into hilarious anecdotes - Publishers Weekly
Most of his adventures are funny, some hilarious; but he has the good sense to leaven the comedy with some that are sad, some touching. All are written lightly, easily, entertainingly. We could do with some more. - Oxford Times
He has succeeded in writing a book that will entertain, a book that will entertain and warm the cockles of tired old hearts. - Punch
The funniest book I have read since Three Men in a Boat - Chronicle and Echo
Coleman is a very funny writer - This England
His powers of observation combine with his penchant for brilliant word pictures to create a most delightful book that will appeal to all those who appreciate humour and sharp characterisation. - Sunday Independent
No thinking person can ignore him - The Ecologist
Superstar - Independent on Sunday
Brilliant - The People
The calmest voice of reason - The Observer
Compulsive reading - The Guardian
His message is important - The Economist
The man is a national treasure - What doctors don't tell you

5.0 étoiles sur 5 delightful story 9 février 2015
Par Jean - Publié sur Amazon.com

“The young Country Doctor” by Vernon Coleman, M.D. is book one in the Bilbury Chronicles describing the adventures of a young physician who enters general practice as an assistant to an elderly, eccentric physician in Devon, England.

The author is a prolific and well known author in the United Kingdom. His book “Mrs. Caldicot’s Cabbage War” was turned into an award winning movie in the U.K.

The book sort of reminds me of the James Herriot books about a country veterinarian in Northern England. The book follows the daily happenings of a newly minted young physician in his first position after completing his hospital residency. The story takes place in 1970 in Devonshire. It has a simple, pleasant story with twists, turns, tears and laughs. The characters are unique and intriguing and just plain delightful. The village is small where everyone knows everyone and there are no secrets.

The stories are moving, funny and heartwarming. The book is well written and an easy delightful read. I cannot wait to start reading the next book in the series and drop by for a look into the life of the village. The book is 480 pages. I read this on my Kindle app for my iPad. This was a book on Kindle unlimited.

I never thought starting a family practice just after getting your diploma as a doctor would be so much challenge... This story, happening in 1970, is a reminder of the "good old days", in the words of this young doctor: "It is one of the paradoxes of modern living that the larger a community is the fewer friends and acquaintances each individual will have." The story is told with much humanity and wisdom. How can I not want to read the 6 books thereafter and learn how this young country doctor is faring over the years?
Remember this is countryside England, but may be America used to be the same.
I am lucky to live now on a small island in the Caribbean where much has kept the same: no appointment, first arrived first served basis, homeopathy before harsh drugs, contacts in the street and at the supermarket, everything relevant in a small village where everyone knows everyone (and where there is no secret)... The Bilbury Chronicles were worth my time, maybe it will be worth yours?

A wonderful, fun read from start to finish! I was finishing nursing school about the time this story begins and it was fun remembering my fresh new energetic mind getting started about the same time this story takes off. There is laughter and tears and in that way is an honest portrayal of life! I will continue the series as a nice "walk back in time".
