Tietoja tekijästä

A.J. (Archibald Joseph) Cronin was born in Cardross, Scotland on July 19, 1896. He was educated at the University of Glasgow Medical School and served as a surgeon in the Royal Navy during World War I. After the war, he investigated occupational diseases in the coal industry and worked as a general näytä lisää practitioner in Wales and London. His first novel, Hatter's Castle, written in 1931, was an immediate success, and Cronin gave up the practice of medicine to become a full-time author. Hatter's Castle was adapted into a film in 1941. His other works include Shannon's Way, The Judas Tree, A Song of Sixpence, and A Thing of Beauty. He drew on his medical background in writing his books, and his most popular character was Doctor Finlay, which provided the background for the television series, Doctor Finlay's Casebook. Many of his books were made into films including The Stars Look Down, The Citadel, The Keys of the Kingdom, and The Green Years. He died on January 6, 1981. (Bowker Author Biography) näytä vähemmän

Read this a long time ago and went back to it to reread but found the Scottish terms and dialogue difficult to get past so didn't persevere.

Read for our local book group. Compelling reading at times, about a young, idealistic doctor starting out in a Welsh mining village in the 1920s. He learns a lot, makes friends (and enemies), and his idealistic principles are challenged - even abandoned for a while.

The characters and situations are realistic, based on the author's own experiences, and demonstrate some of the horrors of medicine before the NHS. I didn't really relate to any of the characters, and found some of the events shocking, but definitely think it's worth reading.

I'd give it three and three-quarters stars if I could!

I recall this was about a Catholic priest, his youth and work in China. I believe I enjoyed this book.
