I read all of the book rather than be rude and not give it chance to grow on me.
Don't forget this is my personal thoughts and experience, you may enjoy this.
See my other reviews - I do enjoy midwife/nursing true stories.
Some of the metaphorical comparisons feel a bit forced, like they were added in by a different hand. And there are too many of them. "like a..." can definitely be overdone and just feels like it was to pad out the page-numbers a little.
Not bad, but not great.
I've been struggling to get into it from beginning and now half way, I decided to give up.
It's poorly written, and makes it difficult and unpleasant to read. The story itself is not that great, a bit on the dull side but as long as there are babies and birth involved, it would have been good enough for me to finish if it wasn't for the messy style.
I did enjoy this book and will continue reading ones of a similar genre.
It was interesting to read the experiences of the trainee midwives set in Dublin and the mix of the trainees who in those days had to complete their nurses training before they could even contemplate becoming a midwife...unlike today
The book is humorous and easy to read but if you are expecting 'call the midwife' it is not. This book is focussed on the midwives training in a busy hospital where they are all trying to observe the required number of births and pass their exams. There are a several characters introduced as patients that pass through and enrich the story but it is mainly the story of the trainee midwives
An enjoyable read
