    1 thought on “The Young Country Doctor Book 3: Bilbury Revels”

    1. WonderfulSo picturesque! I felt like I was traveling along the hedgerows with this young country doctor! Loveable characters and heartwarming stories.

    2. WonderfulBest book I've read in a long time. The exploits are hilarious, you will laugh out loud. Very uplifting book.

    3. Times to RememberAnother quiet enjoyable read. Characters come alive with all humbleness and joy. This story was real with all humor and fears that make up the lives of people that I am blessed to live among.

    4. Okay, I'm finished reading this series.The author's underlying character had at last been revealed. In this 3rd book of the series, he shows his true colors as a reverse snob (a bright man living in a very rural village and sneering at everything urbane: people, traffic, possessions, values), an arrogant, opinionated jerk clothed in false modesty and humility.And, OMG, if you know next to nothing about cricket, you can skip about 50 pages devoted to an exaggeratedly slapstick cricket match betwe [...]

    5. In this volume the author spends quite a lot of time away from Bilbury, and I didn't like those parts as much, because he seems more curmudgeonly and judgemental when he's away from his home. But I loved everything related to the revels and the way the village worked together. As I've said before the villagers aren't particularly honest, but they do care for one another. It was still very fun to read.

    6. This third title in the series lacked the energy of the first two books. Our young doctor has suspended his medical practice and acts like a lazy ne'er do well. The various village anecdotes repeat scenes written by far more accomplished writers. The characters have become one-dimensional and stereotypical. Disappointing.

    7. Delightful, enjoyable readMarie's Read (Marie Shirley Griffin)This is the last of the three book series. It was the one that I laughed out loud in several places.While each book can be read "as a stand alone", you really should read them in order to get the complete story.This middle-aged American has thoroughly enjoyed her visit to the small village in England.

    8. Readable and enjoyable!The Bilbury series is a fun collection of stories about an English village in Devon, the trials and successes of its very colorful characters. I have read this series from the beginning and enjoyed each installment very much. I'm on to Book Four now, and looking forward to the continuing adventures of the inhabitants of Bilbury village

    9. EntertainingIt was full of mishaps but everything worked out better in the end. Loved all the characters in the series. Didn't understand about cricket which made it hard to follow in the end.

    10. Great seriesI feel the characters have become friends of mine. The quirks, the scams, the dodgy deals just enhance the friendships. These books are a gentle, enjoyable read; showing small town life with its warts & beauty.

    11. Charming and AmusingOnce again Dr Coleman writes about village life in Devon with wit and humour. I find the stories heartwarming and lively, full of country life at it's best.

    12. A Fun ReadA little slower than the first two volumes but still a fun story. Would help if I understood the game of cricket.

    13. Enjoyable easy readingThis is the third book in a series. It is a good easy read that tells about the life of a country doctor in England
