No one writes as clearly and intelligently about modern medicine as Seamus O'Mahony -- Emily Hourican, Sunday Independent
Wonderfully funny and curmudgeonly, The Ministry of Bodies is a descent into the very bowels of modern medicine, as brilliant and candid as Solzhenitsyn's Cancer Ward -- Kevin Toolis
Doctors tend to be seen as saints and heroes, but that's a picture few of them recognise. Seamus O'Mahony, a medical Dostoevsky, gives a much more interesting and much funnier portrayal of a doctor's life -- Richard Smith, former editor of the British Medical Journal
The Ministry of Bodies has much of what we expect from O'Mahony - it's blunt, witty, erudite, curmudgeonly -- Melanie Reid, The Times
There's plenty of interesting strangeness * iNews *
Funny, sad, infuriating, heartening and depressing, all in almost equal measure, although the overarching theme is one of deep regret for what has been lost... There are many parts of The Ministry of Bodies that had me laughing out loud... O'Mahony has a very keen eye for the absurd. But much of it made me wince too... The moral conviction of the book is unwavering' * Irish Sunday Independent *
