An Irish Country Practice - Patrick Taylor

This was all over the place. Fingal parts except for some storylines was okay and Barry was insufferable throughout. Taylor doesn't even show Barry's wedding, you have to read about it in the afterword which annoyed me to no end.

 

Good:

 

We get to see what happened to some of the villagers from the earlier books. 

 

 

Bad:

 

Kinky tells a ton of people about her gift (she's fey). And this contradicts her always saying she was not supposed to tell people.

 

Barry all of a sudden hates children. If he was ambivalent about them coming into the world due to war and other things like the prior book, fine. But he sucked. 

 

Taylor inserts a friend of his in the book that wasn't needed.

 

We barely hear about the third doctor anymore.

 

Fitzpatrick's addiction contradicts him placing a bet in the earlier books. Taylor gets him gone through some terrible plot device.

 

Same issue with Lars and Mryna's romance.

 

All in all disappointed. Two stars.
