    " I love the Dalesmen farmers. They remind me of hobbits. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather | 2/12/2014

    " I just can't get enough of Herriot's books! I really need to get my own copies so that I can grab one at will for a quick visit with good friends and a little dose of soul soothing humor. They are all excellent and worth every star "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tim | 2/12/2014

    " James Herriot has a knack for telling stories, and the characters he includes are very nuanced. The book reads more like a collection of memories than a coherent story, but it is quite amusing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Darrell | 2/9/2014

    " One more great James Herriot book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Loretta | 2/8/2014

    " I read this one out of order, but no matter. I am planning on reading Herriot's other books, and will savor them just as I did this one and All Creatures Great and Small. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anna | 2/5/2014

    " This one of the most bittersweetest James Herriot I have ever heard! It truly is amazing, if you are an animal lover, you'll adore this book. Let me rephrase that, whoever likes good humor and bittersweet moments in stories that will make your heart soften as Mr. Herriot tells of his patients one by one you should buy this book and if you like this one, you'll adore the whole series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pamela | 1/26/2014

    " Actually, I am reading this for the second time...the first being about 15 years ago. It is every bit as enjoyable this time as it was then. For anyone who is an animal lover it is a feast of interesting stories written by a man who knew first-hand what it was like to birth a calf that was too big to be born or save a beloved dog that developed diabetes...and on and on and on. It is not only the critter stories that are wonderful--their "people" are just as interesting as is writing about the Yorkshire area of Great Britain. Each chapter is a story in itself making for an easy, fast read that I would recommend for all friends of animals, lovers of humorous writing and human nature. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lesley | 1/22/2014

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen | 1/21/2014

    " A timeless, feel-good classic - I blew through it in two sittings because I could not tear myself away from triumphs and frustrations of Yorkshire's animal kingdom. I was greatly saddened to note that the last time the book had been checked out of the library was 2008 - I hope Herriot's gems, this one especially, are not being lost to modern readers. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tal | 1/20/2014

    " James Herriot was a fantastic writer. All of his stories are entertaining - and it's amazing how many stories he has! He can turn any boring day into a tale. I think I will re-listen to this on my cross-country drive in July. That's how much I loved it! "
