Vernon Coleman con The Young Country Doctor Book 3: Bilbury Revels (English Edition)

Bilbury Revels is the third in The Young Country Doctor series of books (though it can be read as an individual title) and continues the account of the doctor and his young wife, Patsy, who are settled happily at Bilbury Grange. Disaster strikes during a long, relentless storm which batters the village and blankets the whole area in a thick covering of snow. The doctor nearly loses his life and the village schoolteacher loses her cottage roof. The excitement really starts when the villagers join together to raise money to repair the devastated cottage. Vernon Coleman describes an old fashioned music hall evening (during which just about everything that can go wrong goes wrong), and one of the funniest cricket matches ever described is reported in chapters 16 and 17 (People's Friend magazine warned that this chapter was likely to produce so much uncontrollable laughter that it should not be read in public). There is also a village produce show where the locals compete to find out who has grown the biggest and best vegetables. And, as if all that were not enough, the doctor has to promote his first book. He travels to London, makes his first (and hilarious) television appearance and is invited to speak at a local village hall where things don't go entirely to plan. Vernon Coleman's comic books have been compared to Jerome K.Jerome's classic Three Men in a Boat. Vernon Coleman and his wife still lives in Bilbury - as do Thumper Robinson and Patchy Fogg et al.
This book was re-edited in 2014.
