This book continues in the same irreverant tone set by Adam Kay’s previous one – This Is Going to Hurt.

It describes six Christmases that the author spent as a doctor at NHS, starting from around Dec 15th till New Years Eve. As per his usual style of writing, there are humorous stories, sad ones and unbelievable ones as well.

My only complaint is that it wasn’t long enough. I suppose that was all the writing material Adam had if he spent just six Christmases as a doctor 😊

It rounds off nicely with a seventh Christmas – that he finally gets to spend with his loved ones – and his sister Sophie returns from spending the day on Labour ward (guess what, she took up ObGynae too!) and the author spends time quizzing her about all the events that transpired on the ward, showing us how much he misses his life as a doctor.

And Adam, if you were to ever read this post, I have a question – Would you ever consider rejoining the medical fraternity?
