    1. Nice and comforting The I read of this series the I notice the repeating phrases and motifs But rather than become annoyed at the formula it feels instead like putting on a favorite sweater.


    2. More amusing anecdotes about Dr O Reilly in this short novella This story describes his installation after WWII in the small town of Ballybucklebo when he is trying to build up his clientele from scratch.


    3. I saw this a month or so ago, available only as an e book on the Nook Since I truly enjoy this series, I went ahead and got it The author describes it as a long short story It s actually the tale of Dr Fingal Flahertie O Reilly s return to Ballybucklebo after his stint in the Navy during World War II He has managed to purchase the practice of his mentor, and is anxious to start his medical career, in charge of his own practice It s very enjoyable, with Kinky Kincaid already being in place as the [...]


    4. This novella fills in some of the back story that occurred when Dr O Reilly returns to Ballybucklebo after serving 6 years during World War II We are introduced to some of the characters that become mainstays in future books.


    5. Typical Irish Country Doctor Story Funny, poignant, historical, story of small town life with wonderful recurring characters Series must be read in order, so don t start with this one If you have read others in the series, this is like the others, so no needs to be said The series is great for audio book Great Irish accents and slang usage This book gets 4 stars instead of 5 because it was too short Patrick Taylor needs to write , and much faster.


    6. I ve heard about this series, so tried this short prequel It was similar in some ways to James Herriot s books, but without the humor animals Well read, but I m not going to continue listening to the series.This is the wrong edition I listened to it as an audio book, but one isn t listed I m too lazy to add it.


    7. I love Patrick Taylor s Irish Country Doctor series This was a pleasant long short story that explains how the main character ends up being the doctor for Ballybucklebo at the end of WWII It was a fun and quick read, but now I have to wait until Nov 2013 for the next full length installment to be published.




    8. A nice short story about Dr OReiley s first days in his new position Fun for anyone who is addicted to this series.


    9. I love Patrick TaylorI came across Patrick Taylor s name through another favorite author Maeve Binchy Taylor s Irish Country Doctor series is fun and funny.




    10. I enjoyed this short audio book I love small town stories about quirky characters The Irish accent was a bonus


    11. I am not sure where this book should technically fall in the series It is considered a prequel to the series but I feel that while the story does precede the books, it builds upon the flashbacks developed throughout the other novels It would turn most readers off of the series if this was the first book that they read In it s publication order it falls as 7.5 which also does not quite fit in with the two books surrounding it I am however, a stickler for things being in order and this book does n [...]


    12. Wonderful Only wish it were longer Good connection between the other books Glad we could find IG here when we could not find it in print Thank you.


    13. Home is the Sailor by Patrick Taylor is a short story giving fans of The Irish Country Doctor series a glimpse of Dr O Reilly s return to the village of Ballybucklebo, following the war it is a nice little enticement tiding us over until the next full length novel of the series is published or hopefully another book in the series will be written This is an ebook readable in a short time.


    14. Fantastic a very good book He catches you from beginning to end And makes you want to read It is a quaint IRISH town setting about a Dr and his practice and life in Ballybuckleboo Worth reading you ll get hooked I have read two other books by Taylor an IRISH country Dr And an IRISH country village both great.I look forward to reading in the future I hope you find it as interesting as I found excellent.


    15. A very, very short story about Dr O Reilly coming home from WW II and trying to establish his medical practice This story has the warmth that all the Irish Country Doctor stories have As well as presenting the problems of starting a practice, this short story introduces many of the infamous personalities in the town, as well as the beloved Kinky Kincaid, housekeeper and cook extraordinaire for the Dear Doctors.


    16. My local Library did not have a hard copy of this Irish Country story, they only had it on CD So instead of reading this, I ve listened to it It was a shorter story than usual, but enjoyable none the less Hearing the words pronounced in a lovely Irish brogue was wonderful If I find a hard copy, I would be happy to read the story just to say I have.


    17. In the same realm as the rest of the series but a short story that gives insight into the doctor s transition into his practice after he is demobilized from the WWII Navy.It s fun to see the Irish language that author Taylor liberally sprinkles through all these books.


    18. This is the explanation for the beginning of his story it was worthwhile just to understand where Dr Fingal Flaherty O Reilly s experience as a physician began The author is one of my favorites, and think I have read nearly everything he has written, and will continue to do so.


    19. After the disappointment of The Wily O Reilly, this one reminded me of why I like Patrick Taylor s books This was a short story which is not my favorite type of reading, but I really enjoyed it.


    20. Breath of Fresh AirIn the spirit of Doc Martin and Ballykissangel , this story is a breath of frsh air with an Irish lilt to its tone Enjoyed it immensely.


    21. A good short prequel The dialect writing and vocabulary made it a wee bit difficult to understand.



    22. This short story tells of O Reilly s return from the war and setting up his practice in Ballybucklebo.




    23. This one just did not meet up to the standards of the rest of the series I had hoped for comedic antics and tender moments, but felt short changed.
