This is Going to Hurt: Secret Diaries of a Junior DoctorThis is Going to Hurt: Secret Diaries of a Junior Doctor by Adam Kay

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was hilariously funny and heartbreaking. It was such a quick read due to the short diary entries and I never had a moment throughout the book where I felt skimming the paragraph.
My initial response when picking up this book was interested as my friend had picked it up a few weeks before and had really enjoyed it. Through her recommendation, I decided to pick it up myself and have a read. From the first page, I was engrossed in the life of a junior doctor and didn’t want to put it down.

While reading this book I was laughing and genuinely interested in the things that were talked about. The NHS is a serious hung and we are so lucky as a country to have this system in place. I already knew from halfway into this book that it was going to be a highly rated book and I’m so glad that my mindset was like that until the very end.

In conclusion, I fell in love with the narrative of this book and the easy comical flow mixed with the heartbreaking realities of working in the medical profession. I am really glad that this book has reached a lot of people.
