5.0 out of 5 stars A Joy to Read, 11 Feb 2012

Many years ago I was given this book without any prior knowledge of James Herriot the vet. From the first page to the last I was gripped by the sense of joy and wonderment contained within. Even now having read this book maybe five or six times it still fills me with that feeling you get on a warm summers day as the sun goes down. Is there a more joyous book? I really doubt it.

This is really the omnibus of the first few books that James Herriot or rather James Alfred Wight based loosely on his life as a vet in the 40's. It is charming warm and full of humour. It speaks of a simpler and sometimes harder life that Britain has lost.

The writing style is deceptively simple. However it packs all the information you need to recreate the Yorkshire of days gone by. Characters jump out the page and of course the love of animals is evident on every page.

A simply wonderful book that never fails to add a little warmth to my world.

My father is 93 and spends a lot of time reading. He'll never manage a Kindle so the large print books are great.

Good quality CD. Well read and brings James Herriot's classical works to life. Highly recommended for those who for any reason cannot watch the TV series.

It is wonderful to hear these stories read by Christopher Timothy, just as good as watching the old TV porgrammes
