just as great as his first book; no decline in providing enjoyment. Just as many stories causing out-loud laughter and others drawing tears because they're so touching. I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the Herriot books.
James Herriot's love for animals shines through in these feel good stories of his life as a country vet in England. From taking care of kittens and puppies all the way up through large farm animals, Mr. Herriot always has an interesting anecdote and lesson it impart. His entire series are a pleasure to read.
The second volume in the beloved series of memoirs of life in the Yorkshire Dales by the world's most celebrated animal doctor. This delightful volume contains the stories begun in All Creatures Great and Small.
This book makes being a veterinarian seem like the most wonderful occupation and at the same time presents the very real world of human nature and animal sense of humor. A must read for anyone thinking of living with animals.
Two years ago when we published James Herriot's All Creatures Great and Small, we called it a "miracle between covers." In the first major review of the book, Alfred Ames said: "If there is any justice, All Creatures Great and Small will become a classic of its kind. The publishers call it a miracle--not too strong a word for a book that offers something for everyone: gusto, humor, pathos, information, romance, insight, style. It is vicarious living with one of the happiest and most admirable of people, a veterinary surgeon in the Yorkshire dales who can write superlatively well."
James, the miracle worker, has done it again. All Things Bright and Beautiful is precisely the warm and joyful sequel that readers all over America have been asking for. James is now married, and he and Helen live on the top floor of Skeldale House, while his former boss, now partner, Siegfried lives downstairs with Siegfried's brother Tristan. James continues the rich and rewarding day-to-day life of a small-town veterinarian, and we journey with him across the dales meeting a whole new cast of unforgettable characters--humans, dogs, horses, lambs, parakeets--all of them drawn with the same infinite fascination, affection, and insight that have made Herriot one of the most beloved authors of our time. This is the most loving book of the year to have--or to give.
These Herriot books are timeless and wholesome. Who wouldn't enjoy them and re-read them from time to time? They are a good antidote to those times when a reader is feeling down or sad or just wants to recall a kinder, gentler time.
This book follows All Creatures Great and Small. James Herriot has been working as a veterinarian in Darrowby for several years. Upon getting married, he became partners with his boss Siegfried. This book covers that time period up until he joins the RAF in World War II.
He describes many of his visits to the farms and his various animal patients and their owners with such affection that you can tell he truly loves it there. Even when he describes difficult people he has encountered, he tells the stories with such humor. Sometimes he reminisces back to times he was dating his wife Helen. He also describes many of the old procedures veterinarians had to use back then before the medical advances in this field.
I love the writing style of this author. He brings you into his world and you enjoy being there. Another 5-star rating.
