©1974 James Herriot; (P)2008 Macmillan Audio
"A great opportunity to introduce new listeners to audio." (AudioFile)
"Herriot's skill as a storyteller is classic." (Detroit Free Press)
"[Herriot's] message is affectionate, and his four-footed creatures are irresistible." (Time)
I run/knit/swim/climb/watch Bollywood when not driven to the brink of insanity by homeschooled children who think and talk far too much.
It is Good rainy day book. It has a Nice slow pace and voice. It's understandable and smooth. I like it.
Actually, yes. As an American, I can't imagine the Yorkshire accents just from the printed word. Jim Dale's reading is quite excellent, though his James Herriot doesn't sound as Scottish as often described in the books.
That would be a spoiler.
Timing, accent, voices.
worm, good fealings
all of the books writen by James Herriot. he gives such an "UP" to even the worst of times.
Jim Dale is one of the best.

being a life long fan of James Herriot storys on TV and Audio i must admet Christopher Timothy is my favorit reader. he played James on the BBC TV series and did most of the books. which I wish you would get.
