Editorial Reviews

Review

“A great opportunity to introduce new listeners to audio.” ―AudioFile

“His message is affectionate, and his four-footed creatures are irresistible.” ―Time on James Herriot

“Herriot's skill as a storyteller is classic.” ―Detroit Free Press on James Herriot

“Herriot's generous nature and honest concern coupled with Timothy's friendly style are a winning combination.” ―AudioFile* on Dog Stories

“Christopher Timothy portrayed the semi-fictional Yorkshire veterinarian James Herriot in the wonderful BBC television series...he's just as good a reader as he is an actor. His cultured British voice twinkles with humor and shades into heartwarming emotion as appropriate. With his crystal articulation, he is marvelous, and so is the music from the television series.” ―AudioFile on All Creatures Great and Small

“Whatever joy one found in [All Creatures Great and Small] is in [All Things Bright and Beautiful], only even more joyous; whatever laughter rippled from the throat in the reading of the first, finds even greater gusto in this one. It is funny, wry, simple in its story but as deep and perceptive of life's truths as the superlative sensitivity of the writer and his talent can make it.” ―The Hartford Courant on All Things Bright and Beautiful

“Christopher Timothy conveys his relish for the countryside and country folk, not to mention animals.... Herriot's generous nature and honest concern coupled with Timothy's friendly style are a winning combination.” ―AudioFile on all programs read by Christopher Timothy

Years ago, after reading the books, I never missed an episode of the NPR sponsered TV program on Channel 6 in Sacramento, CA. In the early '90's, my son (USAF) and family were sent to England and my husband and I had the wonderful opportunity to visit there and actually toured the Yorkshire dales and countryside. We were able to visit the real home of this wonderful veterinarian and the one used in the making of the television series.

Listening to the audio version of the books has brought back vivid memories so real it sometimes brings tears of happiness to my eyes.

This is one of my all time favorites and Christopher Timothy is ABSOLUTELY one of the best readers of all times. I have not yet started watching the DVD's but I know I will feel the same. Truly I cannot say enough good things about this collection.

Got the entire collection for my husband to listen to on his commute to work. I'm almost sorry because I keep hearing the stories when he gets home every evening, but he's really enjoying them.

Great, classic books, and Christopher Timothy's performance is excellent. I am only giving it a low rating because it is very unclear from the product description which books in his series you are actually receiving. To me, "The James Herriot Collection" implies the set of four of his most famous books. This set includes only the following three:

1) All Things Bright and Beautiful
2) All Creatures Great and Small
3) All Things Wise and Wonderful

It does NOT include "The Lord God Made Them All."

Great to hear the voice of the actor who played JH so well in the television series, also read his books so passionately: wonderful atmosphere.

This is a very well-done production. Having read all the books and watched the TV series, hearing them read by Christopher Timothy brings back all the vivid imagery. These are great for the family to enjoy on a road trip.

This CD collection is wonderful! It's easy to get submerged into the storyline of each tale. We've been listening to a couple of chapters during dinner each night & will be sad when we've finished them all! The stories are appropriate & interesting for animal lovers of all ages.
