Excellent

I first read this in 1998. Then in 2008 I listened to the audiobook. On impulse I decided to listen to it again as an audiobook. For me the audiobook format works the best so I can completely enjoy the various accents. I find I like to listen to a James Herriot book when I need a break from reading more intense books and when life gets a bit stressful. Harriot’s books seem to allow me to unwind.

James Herriot is a master story teller. He tells about practicing veterinary medicine in the Yorkshire dales, England in the early 1900s. He visits farms and helps treat sick animals and, of course, deals with the birth of calves, lambs, horses and pigs. I got a kick out of Dorothy the goat and Blossom the cow. Herriot’s dry British wit is delightful. This audiobook won the 1998 Audie Award for non-fiction.

The book is only three hours long so makes a great book to take a break with. Christopher Timothy does a great job narrating the book. Timothy is from Wales. He is an award -winning actor and director in the United Kingdom. He also narrates audiobooks.

More great fun!

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!

Wonderful and inspiring

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 !

great sampling of Herriot's work

This book is a mix of the best stories from his other books and some new ones. All of his vignettes are delightful and heart-warming. The narrator also does a wonderful job. This is a great book to sample this classic author's wonderful work. I guarantee you'll want more!

I loved 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.
