A Country Doctor's Notebook (Vintage Classics)
A Country Doctor's Notebook (Vintage Classics)
by Mikhail Bulgakov
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.39

5.0 out of 5 stars Sensational book, 15 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bulgakov work has only recently become known to me, and I feel this semi-autobiographical depiction of life in a far-flung hospital in revolutionary Russia is his best.

At times sad, it combines elements of farce and humour whilst also dealing with the loneliness of the human psyche and the creative and mysterious country patients ailments and quirks.

I would also recommend the DVD "A Young Doctor's Notebook" which recently adapted elements of this book into a four part Sky Arts series. Wonderful acting by Jon Hamm and Daniel Radcliffe portraying the old and young doctor.

This review is from: Shar Pei (Calendar)
The star is for the quality of shar-pei pictures within the calendar, but it was for 2010-2011 - a 15 month issue - which was not made clear on the description.
