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 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.
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.
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 every living thing!
I can't say enough how much I love these books. so full of heart warming, tearjerking, laugh out loud moments. Excellent book. Excellent narrator!
LOVE ANIMALS AND LOVE JAMES HARRIOT,ALL THE STORIES ARE WONDERFUL,SO FULL OF LIFE IN THE DALES.
NO FAVORITE THEY ALL HAVE A WONERFULL CHARACTER,SO REAL AND RICH IN CULTURE.
HIS APPEARANCE IS SO REAL SEEING HIM PLAY THE PART ON THE WEEKLY ON PBS TELEVISION
