    Story
    "Following in James Herriot's footsteps"
    What made the experience of listening to Dog Daze and Cat Naps the most enjoyable?

    A gentle tale of the not-always-smooth road to becoming a vet. At times I laughed out loud and any story that can do that is a gem! I could relate from med school days! The protagonist is a likable fellow who you want to see succeed.


    Any additional comments?

    An enjoyable story, the author is not overly technical but I could really relate and draw parallels to med school ( although he was much more confident with his exams than I was; he described himself as "fatigued" after exams, where my mental state could better be described as "despondent"!), portraying the overwhelming volume of information, the excitement of learning hands-on clinical work, and the quirks of professors and classmates (such as his bird-crazy roommate!) Vignettes both funny and poignant, and he's not above laughing at himself too; medicine is a humbling profession and sometimes you have to laugh at yourself. I'd recommend this story to aspiring young would-be vets as well as anyone who enjoys a good story.

    "Too long"
    What did you like best about Dog Daze and Cat Naps? What did you like least?

    I found the story of an America vet student's journey through training interesting but it could have been shortened considerably. It would have benefited from some stories of his patients and their personalities. His fellow students and professors were effectively portrayed but I felt the animals who are the reason for his training were neglected.

    Story
    "A good lullaby"

    I was looking forwards to listening this book but found it very repetative and since I was ill in bed whilst listening to it, I did finish the book, but not impressed at all.
