This latest novel from Patrick Taylor in the Irish Country series is not only funny, but also hilarious at times. The Wily O’Reilly is a collection of short stories that Patrick Taylor had written back in the 90’s that were published in Stitches: The Journal of Medical Humour. This was just the start of a new story line that became a great series. I like reading where Taylor develops his characters in the beginning and knowing where he takes them in the future.
If you have not started Patrick Taylor’s Irish Country Novel yet, this book would be a great one to start with. It gives all the pieces you need to get to know Dr. Fingal Flahertie O’Reilly and some of Ballybucklebo’s interesting people. Pick it up and enjoy reading.
