  1. Fantastic piece of work, or a disaster
    Barry, 30 juli 2020

    I think it's possible to read this autobiography either as a fantastic piece of work, or a disaster. The narrative is occasionally formal, occupational and technical, but at other times sensation-seeking and brute on the verge of being rude and unpolished. Is Adam Kay totally losing his ethical stance as a former medical doctor? Or is he just open-mindedly facing the bloody truth in a realistic and uncensored manner? Perhaps humorous, but the jargon is more mocking than fun.

I'd prescribe this book to anyone and everyone. It's laugh-out-loud funny, heartbreakingly sad and gives you the lowdown on what it's like to be holding it together while serving on the front line of our beloved but beleaguered NHS. It's wonderful -- Jonathan Ross So clinically funny and politically important for supporters of the NHS that it should be given out on prescription * Guardian * Painfully funny. The pain and the funniness somehow add up to something entirely good, entirely noble and entirely loveable. -- Stephen Fry Finally a true picture of the harrowing, hilarious and ultimately chaotic life of the junior doctor in all its gory glory, dark comedy and unavoidable sadness. A blisteringly funny account shot through with harrowing detail, many pertinent truths and the humanity we all hope doctors conceal behind their unflappable exteriors -- Jo Brand As hilarious as it is heartbreaking - and it IS heartbreaking (also hilarious) -- Charlie Brooker Blisteringly funny, politically enraging and often heartbreaking . . . hilarious . . . brimming not just with humour but with humanity . . . This should be a wake-up call to all who value the NHS -- Hannah Beckerman * Sunday Express * A funny, excoriatingly revealing, beautiful book -- Dawn French Horrifyingly hilarious and hilariously horrifying -- Danny Wallace A ferociously funny book -- Mark Watson Superb -- Pam Ayres As a hypochondriac I was worried about reading Adam Kay's book. Luckily it's incredibly funny - so funny, in fact, that it gave me a hernia from laughing -- Joe Lycett By turns witty, gruesome, alarming, and touching. Always illuminating and searingly honest -- Jonathan Dimbleby Brilliant -- Mark Haddon
