Henry's Nursing Notes

1 star1 star1 star1 star1 star
Ian Martin spent three years as a hospital orderly and kept a ward diary chronicling the sights, sounds and smells that assailed him. Based on this record, "Henry Fuckit's Nursing Notes" is an unflinching account of nursing the sick and dying.

Looking through the eyes of his disreputable hero, Martin uses a brutal blend of cynicism and dark humour to describe a world of suffering and pathos.

About Ian Martin

At the age of 50 Ian Martin gave up his regular job and moved to a remote coastal village near the southern tip of Africa. Drawing on his experiences as an insurance clerk, naval store man, lavatory attendant, assistant farm foreman,temporary school teacher, hospital orderly, weather station medic and house builder, he began the next phase of his life. Now, after more than a decade, he has produced three novels, a fictionalized autobiography and many short articles and stories, and he is still writing. When asked how he has been able to survive for so long without having written a bestseller, he says he is entirely dependent on his wife, who goes out to work. Otherwise he would have died from starvation.

Review by: Hannah Hummel on July 08, 2011 : star star star star star
Some of the scenes in this book were funny, in a dark humor kind of way, but many lack any type of context leaving them flat and void of meaning to the reader. Use of unexplained acronyms also makes it inaccessible to a reader without a medical background.
