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.

    "Just as good as the others"

    All of the Herriot books are great in audio -- very engaging stories that benefit much from the fine reader's rendering of the accents. This one is no exception. I was really sorry when I finished this series because I know there will be no more books.

    "Great listen"

    I've always enjoyed the Herriot books and having grown up with the TV series, it was wonderful to hear them read by Christopher Timothy (who plays James). This is a very relaxing listen.
    Christopher Timothy reads these wonderfully, during the humourous anecdotes you can hear him smiling.

    "Awesome!"

    The James Herriott books are all some of my all-time favorites. If you are looking for a "real" story that reads like fiction, but is based on this man's extraordinary life, you will thoroughly enjoy this book.

    "No disappointment here!"

    I love James Herriot and Christopher Timothy is absolutely the best! I was leary of ordering another because the last one I ordered, All Things Bright and Beautiful was sub standard on recording, but this one was perfect. Very entertaining, a good listen for the entire family. Something for everybody! Love it.

    "Good Wholesome Reading."
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Lord God Made Them All to be better than the print version?

    Yes, I do. Christopher Timothy is the perfect narrator for James Herriot books. He does the accents very well and he has very good inflections when the exciting parts come. It is easy to visual James Herriot scrambling out of the way of charging livestock or dealing with ridiculous clients. He does a great job.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    James Herriot, of course.


    What does Christopher Timothy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    as above


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    I would stick to the title.


    Any additional comments?

    I have read the entire series of Herriot's books and re-read many of them. His books are good, wholesome reading of a time when life was more down to earth and quaint. I love his books. Comfort reading!

    "Priceless!"

    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!

    This was my third audible James Herriot book. As usual the stories were interesting and often humorous. Narration is superb. Never boring or dull.

    "every Herriot book is excellent."

    loved it. great performance as well. the only thing I am not in love with is the music. it's not always timed well and occasionally hits a few high pitched lingering notes that send me scrambling for the volume button. but it's worth it.
