    Any of the veterinary treatments in the field and the interactions with the farmers...hilarious.

    Yes, he doesn't disappoint.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Many.

    Luke knows his I´nupiaq name is full of sounds white people can’t say. He knows he’ll have to leave it behind when he and his brothers are sent to boarding school hundreds of miles from their Arctic village. At Sacred Heart School things are different. Instead of family, there are students - Eskimo, Indian, White - who line up on different sides of the cafeteria like there’s some kind of war going on. And instead of comforting words like tutu and maktak, there’s English. Speaking I´nupiaq - or any native language - is forbidden.

    The narration, multiple voices.

    No.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    40 below was not the problem...we have the solutions for that.


    Any additional comments?

    My wife read the book, and when she heard the epilogue used as the prologue, she was disappointed for me, because she got a second set of insights by learning the background after reading the adventure. I see her point, but it's too late for me, since the cat's out of the bag. I didn't know any better, so it was O.K. for me. If I could hear it again for the first time, I would skip past the prologue, then go back and listen to it later, get the benefit of additional insights to stimulate even more consideration about this saga.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Timeless. Make me feel like I was there, looking over the main character's shoulder, immersed in each episode: sights, sounds, smells...grinning, gritting my teeth, wincing and laughing. The reader's voices brought the characters to life, and the story let you feel things from the main character's point of view. Wish I could meet him, and experience the Yorkshire Dales along side him.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The main character, the veterinarian, James Herriott. I liked his charisma, sincerity humility and occasional insecurity, in spite of his skill and diligence. I enjoyed his appreciation and affection for most people and animals, and agreed with his frustration and distaste for others. I shared his sense of intimidation of some, and cheered his pride or relief in occaions of triumph over grim circumstances.


    Which character – as performed by Christopher Timothy – was your favorite?

    The two-sided Boss Veterinarian, Sigfried Farnun.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Too many.


    Any additional comments?

    What great, realistic adventures! Start with the first book and go through them in order: All Creatures Great and Small, All Things Bright and Beautiful, All things Wise and Wonderful, The Lord God Made Them All.
