    "Every Living Thing"

    I really enjoyed this. I grew up watching the narrator play James Herriot in the British T.V. series and don't think I could imagine any one else reading this. He reads it really well. As he reads the stories you can hear the warmth and humour in his voice. You can even almost "hear" him smiling.
    I would definitely recommend it.

    "I Can Never Get Enough Of James Herriot's Stories"

    I have loved the James Herriot collection for years and am now ecstatic to have it on my iPod. All his stories elicit a 'feel good' feeling for the listener with his brilliant writing and subject matter. Add Christopher Timothy's ability to make it all come to life in audio and you've got a winning combination over all.

    "Charming, classic literature"

    Having read the other 3 James Herriot book as a child, I picked this one up knowing what I'd get. It's even more charming than I remembered, peppered with life lessons and the reality of farm life and rural England. You can't go wrong for entertainment and inspiration with this book.

    "Timeless and endearing!"

    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 every living thing!

    "Great story and reader but too much static noise"
    Would you listen to Every Living Thing again? Why?

    Yes. I love James Herriot and his heart-warming escapades. The animals and their owners all feel so authentic.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The author is able to create a positive spin on everything.


    What three words best describe Christopher Timothy’s voice?

    British expressive melodious


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed a few times. One reason I enjoy this author is that the stories are pretty easy to listen to, without huge drama or unbearably emotional stories.


    Any additional comments?

    The only thing that would make it better is to remove the static background noise in the first nine parts. Ten through thirteen have a clear recording.

    "Only sad to have the book come to an end"

    These James Herriot books are delightful and heartwarming semi-biographical stories of his career as a large animal veterinarian. I would enthusiastically recommend them to anyone.

    "My Favorite audio book"

    James Herriot is great, and Christopher Timothy, who played him in the TV series, does a fantastic job doing all of the voices of the different characters.
    This book is my favorite because of Calum, 'the vet with a badger', and Tricky-Wu, the pekingese who bets on horse races!
    Wonderful, true stories of life as a country veterinarian, expertly read! A delight for all ages!
