Publisher's Summary

The volume that completes the verse: All things bright and beautiful, All creatures great and small, All things wise and wonderful, The Lord God made them all.


The world's most beloved storyteller once again brings us the magical beauty of Yorkshire, the joys and sorrows of its inhabitants, and the richly rewarding experiences of a country veterinarian.


James and Helen now have two growing children, Jimmy and Rosie, who bring a new kind of adventure into James' life. The Herriots live at Skeldale House on the edge of the Yorkshire dales, whose peace, solitude, and feel of the wild make the countryside both thrilling and comforting at the same time.


It is the 1950s, a time of new advances in veterinary medicine, but the hard-working people of Yorkshire have not changed. That includes James' dear old friends Siegfried and Tristan - neither of whom has lost his great good humor. We also meet new friends, as James travels behind the Iron Curtain and learns about a world very different from his own. And always, his wonder, exhilaration, and affection glow in every word, whether he is talking about the glories of the moors and dales or the fascination of the people.

    Story
    "Not my fave, but still good"

    This is my least favorite of the four in the series, but as you can see from the ratings I gave it, it's still good.

    Unlike most of his works, this one has portions that some parents will want to pre-screen before reading to young children because of explicit references to animal sexuality, detailed accounts of collecting specimens for artificial insemination, etc. And, additionally, parents should be aware that this was a hard-drinking culture, and Herriot didn't minimize that fact.

    The story is also oddly disjointed, making frequent jumps from the 1940's to the 1960's and back again, which detracted from its quality in my opinion.

    However, it's still very enjoyable because Herriot had a wonderful eye for beauty, for humor, for poignancy, for sorrow, for joy. And he knew how to set it all down masterfully on paper.

    And the narration? Well, it's Christopher Timothy! What more needs to be said? He's wonderful.

    Story
    "Can't get enough."
    If you could sum up The Lord God Made Them All in three words, what would they be?

    Like great storytelling in a pub, told by the players involved. Could picture it all. Had me smiling, chuckling or outritght laughing.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Lord God Made Them All?

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


    Have you listened to any of Christopher Timothy’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, he doesn't disappoint.


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

    Many.


    Any additional comments?

    I won't miss any other works by this author and narrator.

    "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.
