Retired bookkeeper, married, Mom of 2, two granddaughters. Love cozy mysteries.
I am thoroughly enjoying James Herriot books - AGAIN! I plan to eventually get all of his audiobooks. Rented a few from the library, but it's no good. Sometimes library rentals are in horrible condition. This book was another fun trip to the Dales with Jim Herriot. Some of the stories are repeated in his other books, but some were new to me. I'm happy to have this book in my library!
The book was interesting and funny at the same time. It gave a good description of his work cars a veterinary in a small village in England. I thoroughly enjoyed it !
I love to read the James Herriot stories anyway; but, I really enjoyed listening to this story. I loved it when the stories aired on PBS; and watching Christopher Timothy playing the role of Herriot. And now, it's really great to hear him reading about "his" experiences. Looking forward to hearing more from him.
I just wish their were more stories from James Herriot DVM. What a great collection.
