the whole james harriot series: the best use of paper besides the bible! everytime i read these moving books i don't know if i should cry or laugh. a great balance of funny and tear-jerking chapters. buy all three, read them. re-read them. you won't be disappointed.
Well, what can i say? This is one of the books that made me think about changing my job to become a vet! The stories are great, the caracthers are full of life. James Herriot writes beatiful stories. In one storie you laugh, in the next you cry. This whole series is a must for everyone!
This book was absolutely fantastic. I've been meaning to read one of James Herriot's books for ages and I'm so glad I finally did. The way he writes really connected with me and made me feel for the author in his various predicaments. Every chapter is filled with hilarious events and anecdotes, and it was interesting to learn about the changing veterinary practices at the time.
The only reason I haven't given this a five star rating is that there are many spelling mistakes in the book, I suspect from when it has been made into a Kindle version, which is a shame. They are very obvious mistakes and if the book had been properly edited before being put onto the Kindle they would have been instantly noticeable and easy to correct.
Other than this, it is a fantastic book and I'd highly recommend it!
Again, this is a lovely account of the Yorkshire country vet Herriot. I really love his writing style, and his stories make you laugh out loud one time and cry another one. The book is suitable for children and adults, and I can strongly recommend reading it.
und - mal ab von den vielen Fachausdrücken, wo dann auch mein Englisch ein paar Lücken hat - gut auch auf englisch zu lesen. Man wird ganz wunderbar in die englische Bilderbuch-Tierarzt-Welt hineinversetzt.
Herriot brings his series to a close with more of the same (wonderful) stuff. Included in this volume are accounts of not one but two trips abroad with cargoes of pedigreed livestock. The volume ends with Siegfried's pronouncement, "James, there are great days ahead!"
This book is wonderful for any person who is interested in vet medicine or just someone who loves animals. His books will take you through all the procedures and expose you to wonderful stories of dogs, cats, and his clients. I really hope you enjoy
