Book Description

Bilbury Pudding, the seventh in The Young Country Doctor series, is a collection of stories, reminiscences, essays and anecdotes about life in the English village of Bilbury in North Devon. All the well-loved characters are here: the Doc and Patsy, Thumper Robinson, Patchy Fogg, Peter Marshall and Frank and Gilly at the Duck and Puddle public house. But there are many new faces too. Some of the stories are poignant, some contain a message or two and some are just old-fashioned funny. There are the usual wonderful descriptions of the Devon countryside and, as a bonus, Bilbury Pudding contains more than a little advice on life from Dr Brownlow, Patchy, Thumper and the Doc. Finally, there is a pen portrait of the Doc himself - written, in his own inimitable style, by Thumper Robinson.
Vernon Coleman, the author of Bilbury Pudding, is a qualified doctor as well as a bestselling author. He has written over 100 books which have been translated into 24 languages and sold in over 50 countries. His books have sold over two million hardback and paperback copies in the UK alone. Dr Coleman has written columns and articles for many of the world's leading newspapers and magazines and has broadcast regularly on TV and radio. He was the BBC's first agony uncle and the Breakfast TV doctor.

    3.0 out of 5 stars OK if you enjoyed the other books 7 Jun. 2015
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    For me this was one of those books I like to have at the bedside in case of a sleepless night: utterly undemanding, total escapism, nice and calming to hopefully send you to sleep! Lovers of the series will of course enjoy this too, though it is composed of stories rather than being a novel (actually in this series I think there isn't a lot of difference). The stories are very uneven, some really made me laugh out loud, others seemed mere fillers. But I am afraid I was as usual irritated by the poor quality of Coleman's writing...which in the end prevented me from going to sleep!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Another great read 7 Jun. 2014

    I hope it isn`t ,but fear this is the last book of the young country doctor. These books are on a par with James Heriot which is the highest compliment I can pay the author. I have read the series on my kindle, which I know the author does`t approve of ( I am reading his diaries at the moment ), and to pay less than £2 a book is an absolute bargain.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Vernon Coleman! 5 Jun. 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I've read all the Bilbury series and thoroughly enjoyed them. Now branching out in to Vernon's other works and, hopefully, his other hundred or so books should keep me going for a while? Just reading "Hope your penis shrivels up" which is extremely amusing and quite a bit outside the Bilbury series. Keep it up, Vernon, as you might recommend in the aforementioned book!

    I've read now, each one of the Bilbury books. Every one was a sheer delight. From the first page of the first book the characters and stories came to life. Highly recommended.
