Top critical review
Story wonderful, publication by Pan Macmillan is horrific to read.

I love James Herriot and this was a most enjoyable story, which was totally undermined by the fact that it is littered with spelling mistakes, grammatical errors and horrific typo's. This was not made any better by the way the word 'the' is replaced by the German word 'die' in many of the chapters, thus suggesting that this edition was given over to someone for whom English was not their first language.
I purchased a Kindle in order to get reading literature again for its positive effect of my grasp of the English Language. I did not expect to end up an unpaid proof-reader. It was really hard work reading this.
