    1 thought on “The Young Country Doctor Book 2: Bilbury Grange”

    1. FascinatingWonderful book about a small town country doctor along the lines of books written by Patrick Taylor. This is the second book in the series, both were delightful. I usually don't read two books in a row by the same author but I will be reading this series without stopping.

    2. Easy reading and pleasant, as in the James Herriot novels or Alexander McCall Smith ones. I will read all of Vernon Coleman's novels.

    3. Book 2 is not quite as engaging as book 1, but still worth reading. Coleman has a deft touch for describing the idyllic village & it's townspeople. As a physician, he also presents himself as an inept idiot at times. He'd never be able to conduct himself in such an unprofessional manner in the 21st century. He also starts to deviate towards a liberal bent in this story, which dampens my enthusiasm for the story, yet he's a capable descriptive writer. If you google the author, he comes off as [...]

    4. Another excellent Bilbury bookThe first book in Dr. Vernon Coleman's Bilbury Series was so beautifully written that I eagerly read book 2: Bilbury Grange, which continues the story of a young country doctor and his new wife,Patsy, with a colourful supporting cast of both village and city characters, and richly-described situations that make page-turning reading and create mental pictures putting the reader smack-dab in the middle of a 1970s sea-side village in England. Now, onward to book 3!

    5. I imagine that these stories are semi biographical. However, I thought them not particularly well written, I'm afraid and far from the hilarious as apparently other readers have found them. As I understand Dr. Coleman has his own publishing house, does his own advertising and sells vast quantities of books I'm sure he can afford to ignore my opinion!!

    6. Progress threatens BilburyMy second enjoyable read from Mr. Vernon Coleman. I have fallen in love with Bilbury Grange and could imagine myself in the garden there petting the cats and picking strawberries.

    7. EnjoyableA relaxing read with wonderful characters. Second in the series was enjoyable as the first. Made me want to move in with them

    8. DelightfulFive stars deserved: writing style clear, humorous stories that revealed country living yet poignant, well researched ups and downs of life.

    9. I'm not sure I'd actually like this author, if I met him in person; however, this opinion is based on some reading I've done about him on the Internet, his beliefs, his soapboxes, his rather strident opinions (most of which I disagree with)EVER: These books on his early life as a country doctor in rural England are really delightful escapist reading. I'm not particularly 'learning' anything important by reading them, but neither am I truly wasting my time - because I read the 1st one in 2 days a [...]

    10. Between reading book one and this volume I read up a little on the author, and he definitely has opinions about many political and health issues. I probably wouldn't agree with a lot of them, but in this book he did a great job of introducing some of his opinions without turning it into a polemic. It was interesting to read about some of his career struggles and the reasons for them, and as always there were some funny stories too. I was pretty sure how the book was going to end, but I enjoyed i [...]

    11. Truly delightfulMarie's Read (Marie Shirley Griffin)Along the same lines as "All Creatures Great and Small", only the patients are people.Life as a doctor in England is so much different than here in the States, I find it fascinating how it works.I'm on to Book 3 of the series.

    12. Lovely readThe characters are endearing & the portrayal of life in a small town or village is spot on. I feel like these folks are my friends & neighbors & I care about them. Well written & very enjoyable.

    13. DelightfulMr Coleman writes a marvelous story(s) about rural village life in Devon (UK). From a GP's perspective humor and tragedy are woven into the the telling. Good stuff.

    14. Our newlyweds encounter and overcome some problems in rebuilding their house. The book ends with us unsure of exactly what will become of them

    15. Entertaining and easy readI really like this series. Its a very entertaining book and you can easily get hooked on it. Totally recommended

    16. InterestingIt is a wonderful story and I feel like I know all the characters in it. It is like having a window into another world.
