I read all of James Herriot's books several times over during the 20+ years and have never tired of them or have they been far from my mind (as a cat, dog and horse owner). I watched the BBC program as well (which was excellent). The review "Comfort Listening" says it all. My vision is now impaired and I can't really read a book anymore, so the part about them being good for someone in ill health, etc. is very accurate. If you have read these books before, you will still be as enchanted as you were the first time---and if you haven't, it will be well worth your time and your book credits to give them a try. I'm so happy that I can download the 2nd one right now and keep going!
Comforting and addictive.
I would compare the series to the Father Tim series by Jan Karon.
It was just fine. I've grown used to Cynthia Darlow because she's the narrator for all the other "Miss Julia" books on Audible.
I'm going to contact Audible and see when the other four books will be available. I can't imagine they would put on Number One and not add the rest to catch up:-)
