This is not a book that cant be put down and returned to later. That does not mean it is not better-written and funnier than some novels Ive read straight through. And every time the authors boss goes overboard and I feel righteously angry on behalf of the author, I realize that he had his revenge by recording his bosss nutty behavior in his books. First in a series; sequels include All Things Bright and Beautiful, All Things Wise and Wonderful, The Lord God Made Them All, and Every Living Thing.

I really liked this memoir of being an English countryside vet in the late 1930s. The book, though it did follow a loose chronology, seemed more like a series of articles or anecdotes than a cohesive novel. Some chapters did flow together, but the vast majority did not. That's not to say that I didn't like the book, because I did, I loved it - it had many parts that were laugh-out-loud funny - the brother, Tristan, was an especially comical character. The memoir was educational too, but the veterinary technicalities were well explained. It actually had less to do with animals than I thought it would - there was a great deal about people - even a central romance!
