5.0 von 5 Sternen This is a really great book for readers and non-readers.
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.

3.0 von 5 Sternen The book was interesting but could keep boring at times.
The book that my group read was called All Creatures Great and Small by this surgeon named James Herriot. The book was not the best book in the world and it did get boring at a lot of times but I did manage to read all of it. It was interesting to see a man work so hard to take care of all kinds of different animals. The funny part was when he was looking for a lady...

5.0 von 5 Sternen This is a really great book for readers and non-readers., 13. November 1998
Rezension bezieht sich auf: All Creatures Great and Small (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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Superb, 21. April 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: All Creatures Great and Small (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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Timeless Classic - An Animal Lover's Delight, 28. April 2000
Von 
S. Antico (Southern California USA) - Alle meine Rezensionen ansehen
(REAL NAME)   
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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wonderful, charming book, 2. Oktober 1998
Von 
A. Spivey (DeKalb, IL) - Alle meine Rezensionen ansehen
(REAL NAME)   
Rezension bezieht sich auf: All Creatures Great and Small (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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen interesting, whimsically funny, but above all instructive, 19. Juli 2000

Rezension bezieht sich auf: All Creatures Great and Small (Taschenbuch)
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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Warm, Touching and Always Insightful, 12. Juli 1998
Rezension bezieht sich auf: All Creatures Great and Small (Taschenbuch)
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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An Amazing Novel, 2. Dezember 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: All Creatures Great and Small (Taschenbuch)
When I was in 7th grade I recieved All Creatures Great And Small as a Christmas present. At first I did not know what to make of it, however I had always been an animal lover and decided to take it for a spin. Never before had I run through the entire spectrum of emotions while reading a novel. Sad and dissapointed when an animal is lost, tense when a life is on the line, and relief when the patient has been brought back from an untimely death. There is no better description of Jim Herriot(White)than that of an eloquent story-teller. He does not try and elevate his vocabulary so as to be difficult to understand, but states his experiences as a country Veterinarian in ways which are somehow able to draw the reader into the enchanting setting of early 20th century Yorkshire, England. Now a junior in High School, I have this book to thank for steering me in the direction of Veterinary medicine as a future career. Reading this novel has changed my life, and may do the same for you.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Long But Good, 5. Juni 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: All Creatures Great and Small (Taschenbuch)
Monique Gammon Sunnyvale C.A. 6/5/98 The book All Creatures Great and smallby James herriot was not my first pick. Infact it was my last choice but because ai was absent on the day my class handed them out I was stuck with it. My first impression was "Great now I have to read this fat old thick book" I wasn't to happy. But, after reading the second chapter I started to enjoy it. By the middle of the book I couldn't put it down. What I enjoyed most about it was the love story and the struggle Mr. Herriot had with his boss. For a person that dosen't enjoy reading this probebley wouldn't be the best book for you. It is a realy good book with ggreat stories. One sujestion to you is to organize your time so you don't end up breadig the whole book in one week. Because if you do that you won't get the full affect of the book. PS."Try not to judge a book by it's thickness" The movie Titanic was a long movie but a great one at the sametime.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The first book of it's kind., 13. Dezember 1999
This was a revolutionary book. This is the book that Herriot uses to first introduce us to his friends, both human and animal alike. You will find yourself laughing through tears as we follow this Scottish vet to an English land filled with inspiring stories of people, farmers, and of course, animals. The quirky characters lend us a picturesque look into the life of a country vet. There is just no other author who can touch me the way Herriot does. This book is not just a woman's book (as my review seems to point to), but men will find the farmers and Herriot (though sometimes drunken) screamingly funny. Herriot's memoirs are indeed a classic in it's own right. The only item that seems to frighten readers away is how truly English the book is written. The strong Yorkshire dialect can make the new Herriot reader a little frustrated at first. Yet stick with it. It will certainly come to you sooner than you think. It's worth the trouble... Believe me!

5.0 von 5 Sternen one of the best books out of the best series ever written, 14. Februar 2000
It's been six years since I first bought one of James Herriot's novels, and far longer since I read his picture books (e.g. Bonnie's Big Day). Even now in my last year of high school, it's a choice I have never regretted making. All Creatures Great and Small is just one of the most heart-warming and touching books written by someone who was truly blessed by God. This book is serves as an inspiration and companion for the soul of any animal-lover, one whose stories will never fade with the passage of the years. It brings every facet of life and love into being, and is a calling for all animal-lovers around the globe. I have James Herriot, my idol, to thank for helping me choose veterinary medecine as my future career, a choice I have stood by for eleven years!
