Herriot continues the rich and rewarding day-to-day life of a small-town veterinarian, and we journey with him across the dales, meeting a whole new cast of unforgettable characters - humans, dogs, horses, lambs, parakeets - all of them drawn with the same infinite fascination, affection and insight that made James Herriot one of the most beloved authors of our time. And all the stories are warmly, evocatively told by the world-renowned "voice" of Dr. Herriot: Christopher Timothy.

There is nothing better than a good book!
Where do I begin?!?! James Herriot's words and experiences are brought to vivid life by the flawless and brilliant narration of Christopher Timothy! I have never been so captivated! Timothy's spot-on vocals left me awestruck- he truly captures Herriot's sharp wit and genuine love of all creatures great and small, all things bright and beautiful!
I loved the TV show and the books. They are one of my most favourite series in TV and books.
I love the audiobooks because it brings back memories of the era and the people. Christopher brings the characters back to life and all the images flood back.
I have come to love audiobooks as much as I do books. It is to hard to choose for me. I love both.
Just the other books in the series compare to All Things Bright and Beautiful.
No this is the first time for audiobooks.
If you love animals and people you will enjoy this book. There is humour sorrow and history all rolled up in to one.
Jame Herriot is not only a great vet he is also a great writer who can make you laugh and cry.
Yes. I love listening to stories and this one is so lovely.
All the voices he makes, and the inflections of his voice give feeling and emotion to parts of the story
Not much I can add to the glowing reviews of any James Herriot book, other than 'Ditto'. All his books are a fascinating historical record of veterinary practices from the 1930s. We're all fortunate he took the time to write out his experiences.
You won't regret the purchase of any of his books and will laugh and cry through them again and again.
James Herriot's stories are perfect for a cold night, a warm fire, and a hot cuppa. Chirstopher Timothy does is great. So many characters, each with a recognizable voice and personality. You hardly know it isn't a full cast performance.
The stories are fantastic! They will touch your heart! You will laugh and cry but be unable to turn them off! I played this book in my office and teachers that vcme in got so interested that they did not want to leave.
Trick Whoo! The stories about him are so funny and heart warming.
The way the author discribes the country side I feel like I am there.
I don't get to listen to it in all one setting. I play my audio books while at work at a high school. I share them with the teachers that come to my office to work on things. They love them and some have even joined and are purchasing the books as well.
I selected these books by James Harriot because I read them when I was younger, and I thought I remembered them, but having the read to me has been a whole new experience.
Each of James Herriot's books are to be cherished. Such wonderful stories and experiences. I feel like I am the fly on the wall as James lives his life and work his profession. And so descriptive. My husband is now listening to the stories with me.
Who doesn't like a story about a good man helping to heal helpless animals in a town full of interesting people?! Wonderful story for adults, teens and children.
