love the whole series couldn't put it down you get to love the caricatures so much its sad when it comes to an end
I am not an avid reader, but while on vacation a few years back, I stopped into the book store and picked up the first book of the Dr.'s collection. And have been a fan ever since. Unfortunately for me there are no bookstores near where I live. I had the entire collection at one time and never got most of the books back. I would like to get either the hard cover of the soft cover collection again. But never seemed to find them except for one store and then they were still so expensive it was not in my Budget. But....If anyone is looking for humor, or light easy reading this is the collection for you. Just a wonderful Story line in each book, humor and light enjoyable reading.. I wish I would have have an opportunity to meet the man behind the stories. A genus!
Absolutely loved the whole series. Couldn't wait for the next book to arrive. Awaiting the next book in a new series if there aren't any more to come from this one. Most impressive writer, one that captures your attention and makes you feel like you know the characters as well.
