As with other reviews, if you listen/read one book this year, I recommend War Doctor.
I'm in awe of Dr David Nott, respect for his wife Ellie as well. They're an amazing couple.
I'm still shocked at what people can do to each other!

Rob is so refreshingly honest. I bought his selection of best sellers on kindle because you need to actually go back an reread them, if you're a visual person.

Frank, funny, honest. Great insight into the chaotic world of doctors. I refuse to call them junior doctors. They are stretched, denied sleep, assumed superhuman until they make a mistake!
Treat your doctor and nurse etc with compassion and respect. They jolly well deserve it. AND pay them more!

Scary and interesting

I wasn't very surprised that so many black youngsters are incarcerated for petty crimes after listening to Bryan Stevenson's brilliant Just Mercy.
My heart breaks for people who have no hope or future because of their skin colour!

This book could have been non fictional.
Refugees are people. We don't know what they have been through to leave their homeland in sheer desperation.
Yes, there are bad refugees, bad Muslims, bad Christians, bad other religions, but there are also good refugees, good Muslims, good Christians, good other people...
I feel for the authorities and charities who deal with every case/person.
But we need to love our neighbour.

Stephen Fry shows why he's a national treasure.

I don't think I could listen to anyone else besides Stephen Fry when it comes to narrating Sherlock Holmes.
Love the English from an era 100 years ago. So polite and proper.
