Full of wonderful humour and beautifully written.
on 5 October 2013
I bought this book after watching old episodes of "All Creatures Great and Small" on the Yesterday channel The television series is just terrific, bringing the characters in the books to life with such excellent acting. Often television and cinema cannot live up to the written word, but this is certainly one exception. And the books themselves? Well, if "If They Could Talk" is anything to go by, these books are just beautifully written, full of the most wonderful country characters, rich with humour, invoking the atmosphere of those post war years. This will definitely not be the last James Herriot book I will buy. (The Kindle version is free of the usual typos which you often see, especially in the free books which I avoid like the plague these days).
