The second book in the series. Though not quite as good as the first (5-stars) I thoroughly enjoyed it. The anecdotes are witty and well written. I would recommend this book to all who like animals.
I didn't like the music that would come in the middle of a story (despite the chapter change) and the reader would have to talk over the music before it faded out.
I also wish the chapters of the book matched the Audible chapters. It's confusing.
These two complaints are true of the 3 major Herriot books.
Love Christopher Timothy. Very delightful way of reading the stories and doing the accents and tones of voice.
I forgot how beautifully written these books are, not having read them in over 20 years. If you haven't read them, there is something missing from your life.
Wonderfully interpreted by Christopher Timothy.
It is, of course, the only way you can descibe tthis delightful tale,of an English country animal vet in the 1940s. Wonderful narration of the books is in store for you to a place that none of us can ever go again. Please read them all.....
Yes, the stories are timeless. Interesting, heartfelt and very enjoyable.
He did a great job bringing this story to life!
I cannot say enough about these precious books. I've never considered myself an animal lover, but these thoroughly engaging stories have made me envious of those who have shared their lives with pets and other creatures. Christopher Timothy's performance is perfect. The only flaw is the background noise that is present from time to time--not enough to ruin the overall experience, but very distracting. I did not hear these extraneous voices in All Creatures Great and Small, and I hope they will be absent from the next in series.
