Readers, if this is your first experience with James Herriot's writings, do yourself a favor and buy the real thing. You'll get the full stories as they were meant to be read, with no guesswork.
The stories are by turns enchanting and uplifting with the odd, rare dip into tragedy. The style of the last book is a little contrived as Herriot is remembering his RAF life in episodes of him remembering his prior life in Darrowby. Awkward, a bit.
But the contents are delightful and the price is definitely right.
There are a few typos, surprisingly few, and the text flow is not buggered up by the limitations of the markup - which collapses vertical whitespace and ruins any of the author's careful breaks in narrative continuity by presenting the text as a solid splodge. Either the editors took the proper care when assembling this volume or the editing style eschewed the device in favour of traditional chapter markup. Whatever. The book is very readable in the kindle version.
Recommended. A good beach read or train read or rainy day read.
It wouldn't surprise. Such was the uncanny ability of Alfred Wight's eye to capture the immensely rich nuances of man and beast in the Yorkshire hills and dales of the earlier 20th century. Over a re-read that has lasted a year or two, I marvel at the patient and slightly awed love—I think that's the word—which fuels the gentle, acute conversations that are sprinkled across every page of ALL CREATURES GREAT AND SMALL, ALL THINGS BRIGHT AND BEAUTIFUL, AND ALL THINGS WISE AND WONDERFUL.
I'm not sure whether you need to adore animals in order to delight in these books. Perhaps so, but maybe the short chapters work their way into readers' hearts and *turn them* into animal lovers. And devoted readers.
I can think of only one tribute to these readable classics that comes even close to giving them their due: I'll just have to start reading them all over again.
