This is a funny, short collection of stories from Adam Kay recounting the many Christmases he spent working on the labour wards when most of us were stuffing our faces with a Turkey dinner. As it jumps from consecutive year to year it doesn’t flow as well as his brilliant ‘This is going to hurt’ but is much in the same vein. The audiobook is probably better than the written form in this case as it read by Adam himself, and this adds another layer to it.

If you enjoyed ‘This is going to hurt’ then you’ll enjoy this, it doesn’t need much concentration, it has some really laugh out loud moments (it’s all in the delivery – ba-dum-tish!) and is an easy listen to in the car or when or walking the dog.
