Book Description

17 Jan 2013 James Herriot 4

The fourth volume of memoirs from the author who inspired the BBC series All Creatures Great and Small

Finally home from London after his wartime service in the RAF, James Herriot is settling back into life as a country vet. While the world has changed after the war, the blunt Yorkshire clients and menagerie of beasts with weird and wonderful ailments remain the same. But between his young son, Jimmy, trailing him around aping his every move, stubborn farmers refusing to try his ‘new-fangled’ treatments and a goat that has eaten 293 tomatoes, Darrowby is far from quiet. And with another baby on the way, life is about to get even more chaotic…

Since they were first published, James Herriot’s memoirs have sold millions of copies and entranced generations of animal lovers. Charming, funny and touching, The Lord God Made Them All is a heart-warming story of determination, love and companionship from one of Britain’s best-loved authors.

Product Description

Review

"The attraction of Herriot's ever popular memoirs of a country vet...is their alternating highs and lows, humour and pathos, and gripping anecdotes about delivering lambs, grumpy farmers, hypochondriac pet-owners, stroppy cows and blunt Yorkshire characters. And, of course, there's a powerful nostalgia element in these stories about our green and pleasant land in the day before the ravages of ribbon development."--Daily Mail

"On original release in the 1970s, James Herriot's insights into the life of a working vet were so popular and enchanting to readers that the area of the Yorkshire Dales in which he practised became known as 'James Herriot country'."
--Yorkshire Ridings magazine

5.0 out of 5 stars Darn, That's the End 9 Nov 1998
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Herriot brings his series to a close with more of the same (wonderful) stuff. Included in this volume are accounts of not one but two trips abroad with cargoes of pedigreed livestock. The volume ends with Siegfried's pronouncement, "James, there are great days ahead!"

Having read all Herriot's books I knew what to expect. A wonderful book based on real vetinery life at that time. I am now in the process of buying the other books available in the series from Amazon.

3.0 out of 5 stars The intended finale to Herriot's work 2 Nov 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Until the disappointing "Every Little Thing" appeared shortly before his death in 1995, this was the last book by Yorkshire vet to hit the bestseller lists, in 1981. With the assurance and style honed over his preceding novels, James Herriot takes us through some of the highlights of his post-war years, reflecting on new treatments and lifestyles gradually entering the hilly countryside of the Dales.It retains the narrative feel and flow of his earlier classic work and consequently provides a satisfying and fitting finale to his literary output. Siegfried and Tristan don't figure as largely as they did in earlier books, here the emphasis is really on the hilarious array of farming characters Herriot encounters, their reaction to and suspicion of new style veterinary treatments a recurring theme. As ever, they are rendered convincingly and with warmth. We also hear of Herriot's young family, his children accompanying him on his cases as soon as they are able to walk, it seems. With some classic anecdotes, a dry and generous humour, I must recommend this book to anyone who has ever found themselves chuckling to a Herriot story. Don't bother with "Every Little Thing" though...it's pretty mawkish and feels forced.

Not as pleasing as his earlier books. could have been written by someone else as the style is totally different. The whole thing is peppered with typos as if it has been translated from a foreign language. disappointing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Total escape to HERRIOT land 13 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Very well written and you feel like you know the characters personally or would like to! Very believable situations with more than a suggestion of humour and sometimes sadness. Thank you James Herriot for giving me such great pleasure throughout my long life with your books.
