Many more famous authors could work for a lifetime and not achieve more flawless literary control."-- Chicago Tribune Book World

"Herriot charms because he delights in life, embraces it with sensitivity and gust and writes with grace. All Creatures Great And Small may well be the happiest book of the year."-- The New York Times Book Review

3 von 3 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von glogie am 13. November 1998
Format: Taschenbuch
I found this book to be a very easy read, and would recommend it to anybody that reads at the fourth grade level or higher. The Scottish author, James Herriot, describes his life as a newly hired veterinarian, in pre-WWII England. He shares with readers his experiences in handling distressed animals, their owners and caretakers, the business of being a veterinarian, and the successes and failures of love and life.
His descriptions of the situations he was in, were right on. Being British, and the grandson of a blacksmith, I could easily picture in my mind what kind of weather he was experiencing, or how dark a barn, byer, or piggery might be. His characterizations of the local farmers and townspeople were great, and he met some really interesting people!
The book left me with a new respect for what life was like for people in the days when life seemed so much simpler than what it is today. I have just started "All Things Bright and Beautiful", and look forward to completing it, and the rest of Herriot's books in the future.

Format: Taschenbuch
Rarely will you find a novel which so well captures the essence of real people. This book goes beyond just talking about the life of a country veterinarian in Yorkshire and his cases with all forms of pets. It brings insight into the amazing relationships that people have with their pets, whether they be dogs or cats, or farm animals. We see the true grit of birthing a cow as well as the tender affections that an elderly lady has for her prissy poodle. This book also includes biographical accounts of Mr Herriot's clumsy courting of his future wife and other amusing side adventures; marvelous truths that we see in ourselves. Whether you read this book for the vet's practice, the animals, the people, or all of the above, you will enjoy what has become a treasure around the world.

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I recieved this book as a gift then it was first published in the 1970's. I have read it at least five times. Each time I read it I am delighted all over again.
This is an animal lover's delight - but it's much more than that. Follow the young James Herriott as he starts his adventure as a country veterninarian. You feel his pain and joy as he experiences failures and successes. His courtship with his wife-to-be Helen is poignant. Herriott tells it like it is: there's no fancy stuff. Don't let that make you think this is dull. Herriott's descriptions of the landscape and characters make you feel like you're there: the sights and smells he describes tantalize your senses. You can smell the fresh country air, the hearty farm meals, and so much more.
This is a book that will delight young and old alike. Read a chapter and it's a mini-book in itself, or curl up for the long haul. I found it very hard to put down.
You'll be enchanted by Herriott's adventures (and misadventures) and find yourself laughing and crying. Even after 5 reads, I'm ready for another. This stuff never gets old.

1 von 1 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von A. Spivey am 2. Oktober 1998
Format: Taschenbuch
This is the first of a series of sort-of-autobiographical books written by "James Herriot," a real-life country veterinarian in Yorkshire, England. The first book covers his arrival in "Darrowby" in 1937, when new research and new technology were just beginning to change both farming and veterinary medicine. We meet James' boss, Siegfried Farnon, and Siegfried's fun but irresponsible brother Tristan, as well as a wide variety of local farmers and pet owners. As good as the BBC series is, the books are so much more. I think readers of any age (these books are perfectly suitable for older grade school age children) who like animals will enjoy the stories here, as will anyone with an interest in English country life, or stories of days gone by.

You have probably heard that Herriot is heart-warming, enjoyable, and all that. (It's all true.) But how so? And what is so instructive about it?
Herriot was a small-town veterinarian who practiced for over half a century in Yorkshire, Great Britain. He took notes and remembered stories. He did such a good job of it that he was able to put together half a dozen books of his recollections. The accumulated stories are a delightful account of his efforts to get started in the practice, the whole gamut of farmers and pet owners in his area, and all the little details you normally wouldn't hear about. What a man he must have been to have for a grandfather.
The great unheralded benefit of Herriot's writing, in my view, is for the small businessperson who has a limited number of potential clients and who must win them over to succeed. By seeing how Herriot handled a certain type of customer, one can improve the way one deals with one's own customers. The excellent results he ultimately got while dealing with some very tough customers in difficult situations can show the way and inspire you to greater patience and effort. This, in my view, is the hidden value of Herriot.

James "Jems" Herriot provides the reader with a look into a bygone age in the North of England when the science of veterinary medicine was on the cusp of modernity. His recounts of not only his experience with animals, but with his employer, Siegfried, and his pursuit of female companionship are so sweet and funny that I often found myself smiling from sheer pleasure. I would have loved to have met this gentle-man and gotten an eyeful of his borrowed black patent leather dancing slippers with their silk bows!
Luckily, on cable TV, is Animal Planet where there is weekly series that provides a glimpse into present day vets in England, Vets in Practice, and complements Herriot's writings well and gives visualizations to many of the same situations in which Herriot found himself, e.g. difficult cow births. I admire the dedication of these country vets and feel priviledged to have been given such a wonderful look into this man's life. I cried when I finished it- I am such a sap, I know...
I look forward to reading the other titles in this series.
