Book Review: Seasickness

SeasicknessSeasickness by Peter Tate
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Peter Tate, gives us a delightful autobiography of himself and his experiences as a young doctor. You might think that this would lead to a boring read, but Tate’s writing style and wry humor help guide the reader through a delightful set of characters and locations. With the host of characters, this book has a slight edge of the fantastical about it as well. The 1970’s were an impressionable time for the young doctor Tate, and although he did not choose this profession (his father did), he made the best of his cards and applied himself to learning the cure for ills that his medical texts did not cover.
The many flashbacks do make this book a tad bit more complicated in the beginning to read and orient yourself within the story, but around the 6th chapter, I had the author’s rhythm down and was zooming through the pages. Well written, articulate without any editing errors make this a good read.
