For about eleven years, I wrote reviews on a Web site called Epinions. It was a great place to write. I made a lot of friends who are still friends today, some of whom I actually met at Epinions hosted parties. I also made some money. Unfortunately, Epinions croaked a few years ago. Every once in awhile, when I look on Facebook’s On This Day feature, I run across links to some of my old reviews. Although I saved my old reviews, they are on my old computer which has a broken hard drive.
Anyway, I try to preserve the book reviews on my blogs if I am able to access them. Sometimes I click the link and don’t find the review. Sometimes, I get lucky and it’s still there. I put most of my old reviews on my main blog, but I put my reviews about travel subjects on this one. So, if you need a break from politics and want to do some light reading, have a look at the reviews I am reposting today. British physician Ben MacFarlane was a doctor on a cruise ship and has also worked for insurance companies, traveling to people who have gotten sick or injured while on vacation. He arranges for their care as they transit back home (to England).
I found both of MacFarlane’s books very entertaining. In fact, I may need to re-read them. They may be just what the doctor ordered to chase away the winter blues.
The second book is about MacFarlane’s experiences traveling to people who have become sick while on vacation. He accompanies them back to their home and arranges for their care.
