Wonderful book that took me away to a a beautiful place in a difficult time. Can't wait to read James Harriots next book.
What a great book , very well read by Christopher,really is a pleasure from start to finish Highly recommended
A lovely story but I had some problems with the audio. It is easy to picture Christopher Timothy in his TV role. A great insight into prewar veterinary medicine
Fantastic Book and very well written. Top Marks for this excellent production.
A beautiful book written by an empathetic person who loved what he did, understood people & had a delightful sense of humour. It's also a huge plus that it was read by Christopher Timothy who also played his part in the TV series. I listen to it every few months.
Interesting story, a 'light' listen. Didn't finish all 12 discs, but finished 9....
James Herriot tells delightful stories of the life of a veterinarian in Yorkshire, England. I grew up on a farm in NW Iowa that had cattle, pigs, horses, chickens, dogs and cats. Now a city girl, it was fun to hear the stories and reminisce of my childhood days. I loved the book !!
It was a great 12 hours. The reader really brought the story to life. But along with all the joy were a few sad parts. I guess dealing with life and death problems of animals it's bound to happen. Don't get me wrong, it's a 99% "Glad to be alive story" you'll remember and chuckle about. :-)
This book is more a collection of stories than anything else, however, each story will leave you smiling. This book always left me laughing and feeling refreshed
to the Yorkshire Dales where I can eat Yorkshire pudding, marry a young strong farmer and gaze over the rugged beauty of the Dales every morning over tea. classic writing, amazingly read.
James Herriot's best-selling series of memoirs includes "All Creatures Great and Small, All Things Bright and Beautiful, All Things Wise and Wonderful, The Lord God Made Them All, "and "Every Living Thing. "His veterinary practice in Yorkshire, England, is now tended by his son, Jim Wight.
