5.0 out of 5 stars Darn, That's the End
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!"

3.0 out of 5 stars The intended finale to Herriot's work
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...

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
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.

I loved every chapter of this book very much. I ordered EVERY LIVING THING A FEW DAYS AGO . Three minutes later I realised that I had ordered the CD by mistake I really wanted the paperback book, I instantly sent an email to find out if it would be possible to change it. Would please let me know. Thanking you. M. McCreery.

3.0 out of 5 stars Proof reading?, 14 May 2014

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
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
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.

This review is from: The Lord God Made Them All: The classic memoirs of a Yorkshire country vet (James Herriot 4) (Paperback)
I read James Herriot many years back but had never read this one so when I had the opportunity to get the book, I did. Probably the best of the series, even though more "real" and less "funny".
