Book 5 for 2011

Call the Ambulance! by Les Pringle. 383 pages

I wanted to read this book, because Pringle, like my late father, was  an ambulance driver in the 1970s. Pringle worked in Birmingham and my dad in London, but I thought I could at least get a general feel for the sort of thing that went on.

I wasn't expecting a great deal in terms of writing, but was pleasantly surprised. It's a well-written, well put together peek into an ambulanceman's life at that time, and I was pleased to find that the author has a previous book that I haven't read, but which I shall certainly be looking for.
