    I was a large fan of James Herriot, and I enjoyed this book for similarly charming stories and a more up-to-date acc of veterinary medicine as it is today.

    I enjoyed the diversity of animals. Extremely disappointed that Skeldale sold out to a corporate vet practice.

    I loved this book. It reminded me of the James Harriot books. I was sorry when I finished the book, I hope Julian Norton writes more books about his Yorkshire practice.

    This book carries on in the James Herriot tradition. Funny and interesting on the medical government hoops and paperwork they go thru. Very engaging.

    I really enjoyed this book much more than the first one. I understand that Mr. Norton wanted to regale us with some of his hiking, biking and climbing adventures, but it was is fresh book was so much fun. I loved all the individual stories about the animals treated. He seems to really care.

    I have fun reading these stories. Sometimes I can correlate one or two to segments of The Yorkshire Vet TV program. But, most of them are not from the program. This is a book that as I neared the end, I did not wish it to end. I heard there is another one to come out later this year, and I'm looking forward to reading that one, too.

    My Yorkshire Great and Small: Journey through Britain's finest county with The Yorkshire Vet []  2020-1-23 2:7

    We start with an introduction to the Yorkshire Present in Harrogate, a huge agricultural happening that’s been ongoing for over 150 years. Mr. Wright mentioned Amanda Owen, The Yorkshire Shepherdess, who attended and was a guest speaker. I’m a fan of her books as well.What attracted me to the book was the setting and author being a veterinarian in the Dales. Peter Wright was a Vet trainee with Alf Wight and Donald Sinclair (James Herriot and Siegfried Farnon) something I didn’t know until I started reading this book. He also has a tv show! The Yorkshire Vet is a program I was unaware of until I read this book and yes, it seems I am living under a rock some days when I explore an old e observations and comparisons to show day and what life was like decades ago was also very interesting to me. Fishing is a pastime our author and his brother enjoyed very much. The observation that a lot of of the today’s youth don’t have that opportunity as they are living in cities and are so used to iPhone, Xboxes and that electronic distractions.I found the story about finding centuries old coins fascinating. A pair of brothers were digging up a piece of their farmland, leveling it off when they discovered a broken ceramic jug and coins. It’s a amazing story and fabulous discovery. After these old treasures were dug up they ended up in a museum. This is after a court decision. If I am ever visiting near York’s Castle Museum I will certainly wish to view the display of coins and old ch thanks to Netgalley for the advanced copy of this book. Publication date is January 17, 2020. If you have fun reading about veterinarians, Yorkshire or loved the James Herriot stories you will like this book.

    Fans of James Herriot books will love this one by Peter Wright. I am so satisfied to have received this book as an arc from Netgalley! I love the stories about Yorkshire, England in both Herriot and Peter Wright. Such personable stories in both series. I haven't read Wright's first book, it's one I'm going to have to look for in the future. But this book was just charming. I enjoyed the tales and characters, all the nuances of every day life in Yorkshire. I look forward to vising there someday, but in the meantime, I'll read these books, as they create me feel like I am there. Lovely stories!I received a Kindle arc from Netgalley in exchange for a fair review.

    All Creatures Great and Small: Book 1: The Classic Memoirs of a Yorkshire Country Vet []  2020-1-25 1:17

    If I could have given seven stars, I would have given seven stars.I first read this book some twenty years ago. Since then I must have read it at least 3-4 times. Recently I purchased the Kindle edition of this book and once again I lost myself in the 1930s life of a Yorkshire country vet. To say that I thoroughly enjoyed it is an understatement.I suspect James Herriot ( a pseudonym) was first a born story teller and then a vet. His felicity with words is simply amazing. Stories happen around everybody but spotting them and then telling them in a compelling manner is an art mastered by few and James Herriot is at the top of the list. I won't describe the stories here. Buy the book and read them. You won't regret your expense.

    As far as my family is concerned, James Herriot is one of the very best authors ever, and his books among the most enjoyable. This one is no exception. The fact that the stories are real add much to the books. But what conquers our hearts of readers is the human spirit behind the stories: his devoted live for animals, his kindness, his humility. Unsurpassed!

    All Things Wise and Wonderful: The Classic Memoirs of a Yorkshire Country Vet []  2020-1-25 2:28

    The only difference between this book and Herriot's others is that he has to cover more ground. He's flitting back and forth between his Globe Battle II experiences in the RAF and more of his experiences in the Yorkshire countryside with his beloved farm animals and some domestic animals. This created for a very complete autobiography. I found the story of his first solo flight to be very interesting. I think that there seem to be more people stories in this one than in the others, and some of them are sad, poignant stories.I think I have become addicted to Herriot's style of writing in his other books where he will provide us with stories of his day-to-day experiences with the animals and their owners. The result is more immediate--he tells how the phone awakens him in the night and every detail of what happens when he reaches the side of the animal who is in labor or in pain or distress of some sort. Never what you would call a real animal lover, I have found that these stories place me in another place--they create me feel compassion for the animals (and their owners). Whereas, in this book he will tell rather typical military stories and then write that he is reminded of the time when he had to go out to a farm and nurse a certain animal back to health. We still obtain a lot of of the stories which we have learned to crave from our warm and compassionate veterinarian, but the result isn't as focused. It's still a very amazing book, but I will say that there were times when his people stories, whether military or civilian, dragged a small for me. I'd search myself eager to return to his animal world. This is where he shines--when describing both the farm animals and the domestic animals whom he treated and, in a lot of cases, learned to love.I'm very glad that I read this book. I learned more about his multi-faceted life (it was amazing to obtain to know his wife better too). I highly recommend the book. Who knew that I, a 66-year-old lady who has kept her distance from animals her whole life, would become so addicted to Herriot's charming animal stories. In a method they read like a series of short mystery stories. The reader, instead of trying to figure out the perpetrator of a crime, is trying to figure out with Herriot, the cause of an animal's health problem. His books create for fascinating reading, and I'm proof that one doesn't have to be a lifelong animal lover to love these books.

    James Herriot is a master of the pen. He twists and blends the stories into a unbelievable long journey for the reader. His descriptions are hilarious and he truly knows how to hold the reader wanting more. Set in the thirties, you see a glimpse of just how primitive medicine was back then. With a mix of cattle, cats, pigs, dogs and sheep as regular patients, he has also included the owners with amazing depth. His boss, Seigfrid Farnon, the book just comes alive. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, even more so because of the fond memories from the old television series. Just love Herriot`s style and humour, THE VET book for others to follow.

    I have always loved James Herriot's books and especially have fun the unabridged recordings for long-distance traveling. With a amazing book in the CD player the miles roll past. Herriot's unbelievable writing style is both soothing and stimulating, and Christopher Timothy's recordings have become the standard I expect. I was very glad to be able to this since my library has stopped carrying a lot of of its audio books in favor of MP3 downloads or Kindle books. Thanks.

    I remember the first time that I read the stories of James Herriot. Still at high school, and not having a amazing time of it, these books took me away to a much happier time in history to a life that I have always wanted to e stories have stood the try of time and are as vibrant as lively as they were forty years ago!Easy to read and painting a clear picture of life in rural England before Globe Battle 2, I can't recommend this book enough to anyone who has a love of animals, an interest in true life history and a desire to be reminded that there was a time when life was a lot nicer.

    This is everything you expect from a Herriot book. I think this one has been the best of the three, partly because I enjoyed the mix of Yorkshire memories with RAF memories. This one definitely has the largest tear-jerker for cat people with the story about a feral cat named Debbie (which has a bittersweet, hopeful ending that still makes me cry thinking about it), balanced with the story of Oscar, the cat who liked to go to ere was one story that I thought I had already read, but it may have been in one of the previews.I also enjoyed him finally having a gotcha moment or two, instead of always being the victim of them.Well worth getting, especially if Amazon is running a on it.

    This was also a very amazing book, I have read all his other books, they are the best. The only one I have not read was his son's . They always create you smile and laugh, this for a change was not a cry one. The story was more on the surface of him getting older and getting additional support , his kids and always his farmers and all the animals. In this day and age everyone needs books like this , it shows the pure innocents and kindness that seems to be missing in this globe . James Herriot was one of the best people on this earth.

    I have enjoyed this series some years ago. Long enough that most of it was new and fresh again. On several occasions the writings brought tears to my eyes. I ran a cattle farm for about ten years, and a lot of of the things James went through were very familiar to me. Calving time and dealing with scoures. Prolapse uterus was the worst. But the end, with the [email protected]#$%! home the hardest. Over the years, we have had several stray kittens adopt us. One retained her desire for the wild and got away from time to time. The latest escape she was the for weeks and never recovered after that trip and only lasted about three more weeks. The loss of a fur baby is a loss of a family member.

    In this particular edition, the print is extremely small, so little that I ended up purchasing the kindle edition in to read it without getting a headache. I would give this edition one star, but I can't stand to cast any aspersion on anything so unbelievable as James Herriot's writing. I would highly recommend getting a various edition of this attractive book.

    Set as it is in the countryside created popular by the unbelievable books by James Harriot this book happy my longing for thereto be more written about that put and my hope that it had not lost its magic and entered too cruelly into the 21st century. I'm very grateful for the efforts of this amazing man and all those who have helped him to preserve this bit of kindness in our world. I did not search this book to be a not good imitation of the Harriet books-rather, it is like a continuation in the same method that living in a city and in a family and the generations coming and going is a continuation and that one sees and feels the ongoing influence of a method of life, a set of principles and a group of people beginning before Dr. Hariott continuing on the same street but traveled by each in their own method and expressed beautifully by each in their own way.

    We listened to this book on a trip and wanted to hold driving so it wouldn't end! It was a collection of Mr. Herriot's adventures as a country vet in England, and was so delightfully written. Having lived with the different ailments of huge animals, the occasional realistic descriptions of ailments did not bother us. Someone not accustomed to huge animals and their care, might search it too descriptive. We enjoyed the book immensely and hope to hear them all!

    I first came across this series of novels back in the 1970s and, despite being an avid fan of the TV series, this was first time I have revisited the novels since my first reading. Suffice to say, I was not disappointed with these unbelievable stories of a young James Herriot, his partner Siegfried Farnon and his amiable but mischievous brother, Tristan. A pure delight to read.

    I will forever have a spot in my heart for all things Herriot. I read the children’s books to my kids over and over again and we have visited the city of Thirsk in Yorkshire and the James Herriot Museum, which we is book however, has been my least favorite so far. Don’t obtain me wrong. I still liked it very much, just not nearly as much as the others that I’ve read. I didn’t particularly care for the begin of each chapter with the RAF/WWII anecdotes. If it had been just battle stories, I would have been fine with it. But then it would go off in a clumsy sort of method to his pre-war vet days and that was a bit distracting.

    I had just completed reading this well written and compassionate book. This is the latest book written by Alf Wight. I have read most of James Herriot's books and even though they were written a lot of years ago when veterinary surgery was in the midst of undergoing changes as modern drugs become available and the vet's knowledge of palpating his/her animal patients still remains a vital part of veterinary practice to this day. This final book is an perfect read and each chapter is a complete story in itself. One can place the book down and return to it without the chapter ending on a cliff hanger. Each chapter is a gem in itself. James (to use his pseudonym) illustrates amazing compassion for his clients and their pets. His understanding and dealing with distressed pet owners and their ailing pets is a common denominator in every chapter of this book. Not only does he have wonderful patience in dealing with distraught animal owners, he illustrates his love and devotion to his patients under his care. He pays house calls to follow the progress of his patients under his care without even being called in. In his later years, he became more involved in little animal care, while his practice also involved treating huge farm animals such as horses, cows, pigs and sheep. James Herriot books are ageless and one can have fun them even a lot of years after they were written. The anecdotes in each chapter create for interesting reading and the fact that he writes in the first person gives the reader the feeling that the writer is talking to the reader and sharing his emotions with him/her. I recommend this book to all those who share a amazing love for animals and their well-being as well as for those who share a common humanity.

    The end of the series is always a small sad. There's sadness in this one, of course, but it's well is one has several sad or bittersweet cat stories, which always obtain me - torn between the dying old man who wanted his cat and the adopted stray who dies just as some progress is being created as to which got me more (especially his companion who kept looking for him) - but it's clear from reading his work that the writer understood not only cats, but cat is one is particularly amazing for the younger vets coming through the practice, including the vet with t'badger.

    Perfect author is James Herriot! Easy, relaxing read. When I enter one of Mr. Herriot's books I feel like I've entered the wardrobe in the "Narnia" stories. He opens the door and escorts you into a much more lovely globe though in Yorkshire where he was so privileged to have practiced veterinary medicine. His experiences with animals and people that he shares will have you laughing, crying and learning a lot of things that were fascinating to me about the beginnings of veterinary practice as we know it today.

    I enjoyed this book very much. I liked reading about Dr. Norton's private life and professional life. He tells stories of treating animals, as well. I found his analysis of the current state of veterinary practice and thoughts about its future interesting. What I liked best was on the 4th and 5th pages from the end: "But, in the Norton household, we have something of a motto to explain what drives us to challenge ourselves. It goes along the lines of: 'Because it would be easier not to.'" Then he explains what he means by that. I found this attitude to be just what I required at the time, so that caused me to like the book even more.

He loved his work, the people, the animals & esp the countryside which he marveled at continuously. He writes so vividly you can see it & why he loves it so. He gets himself into situations anyone, esp anyone in the healthcare profession, will be able to relate to. I got this as a Christmas bonus for a mate who read one of mine & loved it.

    All Things Bright and BeautifulI just finished it. I hadn't read it in years and wanted to read it again, so back to Amazon to it. I search myself laughing out loud with some of the antics of James Hariott, and the a lot of animals and people he knew. I have 2 of his books and would like to obtain the rest. He was a talented writer and as a vet wished I had met him. If you are looking for a delightful book to read this. If you never read anything by him, this book.

    I remember the first time that I read the stories of James Herriot. Still at high school, and not having a amazing time of it, these books took me away to a much happier time in history to a life that I have always wanted to e stories have stood the try of time and are as vibrant as lively as they were forty years ago!Easy to read and painting a clear picture of life in rural England before Globe Battle 2, I can't recommend this book enough to anyone who has a love of animals, an interest in true life history and a desire to be reminded that there was a time when life was a lot nicer.

    All Creatures Great and Small: The Classic Memoirs of a Yorkshire Country Vet []  2020-1-16 16:48

    If I could have given seven stars, I would have given seven stars.I first read this book some twenty years ago. Since then I must have read it at least 3-4 times. Recently I purchased the Kindle edition of this book and once again I lost myself in the 1930s life of a Yorkshire country vet. To say that I thoroughly enjoyed it is an understatement.I suspect James Herriot ( a pseudonym) was first a born story teller and then a vet. His felicity with words is simply amazing. Stories happen around everybody but spotting them and then telling them in a compelling manner is an art mastered by few and James Herriot is at the top of the list. I won't describe the stories here. Buy the book and read them. You won't regret your expense.

    I first came across this series of novels back in the 1970s and, despite being an avid fan of the TV series, this was first time I have revisited the novels since my first reading. Suffice to say, I was not disappointed with these unbelievable stories of a young James Herriot, his partner Siegfried Farnon and his amiable but mischievous brother, Tristan. A pure delight to read.

    If you wish to laugh, cry, thoroughly love and have fun animal stories as I do, this book is the best with which to do so. All of these books by this most magnificent English country veterinarian are extraordinary and well written. You will enter the globe of this marvelous author in his private and professional life. You will experience all the animals he treats, cures and helps in every method possible and you will sublet a room in your heart to him and his family and mates without reservation.

    Every Living Thing: The Classic Memoirs of a Yorkshire Country Vet []  2020-1-23 2:9

    The worst thing about reading Every Living Thing was coming to the end of it. This is a excellent book for anyone stressed by their work, the politics and news of the day, or any other cause. The latest book of the "All Monsters Amazing and Small" series, it contains stories of a veterinarian's life after Globe Battle II and into the 1960s. Sometimes humorous, sometimes poignant, always interesting, the book is a series of sketches of a method of rural life that no longer exists; slower than today, filled with hard work and few luxuries. I heartily recommend this book.

    This is a delightful read for all who are fans of James Herriot and everyone who loves animals. This has a true day to day acc of the authors treating animals from the field and office. At times its sad,, funny and always entertaining throughout . I love learning that he worked with the true Herriot as his mentor. and teacher .I highly recommend this book and found it quite enjoyable from first page to the last. Thank you for the ARC which does not influence my review. Very well done to the author. As one who has read all the Herriot books and watched the present for years this gives a fresh current insight of the veterinarian work for animals that goes on in Yorkshire. I look forward to watching this present someday.

    This is everything you expect from a Herriot book. I think this one has been the best of the three, partly because I enjoyed the mix of Yorkshire memories with RAF memories. This one definitely has the largest tear-jerker for cat people with the story about a feral cat named Debbie (which has a bittersweet, hopeful ending that still makes me cry thinking about it), balanced with the story of Oscar, the cat who liked to go to ere was one story that I thought I had already read, but it may have been in one of the previews.I also enjoyed him finally having a gotcha moment or two, instead of always being the victim of them.Well worth getting, especially if Amazon is running a on it.

    We listened to this book on a trip and wanted to hold driving so it wouldn't end! It was a collection of Mr. Herriot's adventures as a country vet in England, and was so delightfully written. Having lived with the different ailments of huge animals, the occasional realistic descriptions of ailments did not bother us. Someone not accustomed to huge animals and their care, might search it too descriptive. We enjoyed the book immensely and hope to hear them all!

    I have always loved James Herriot's books and especially have fun the unabridged recordings for long-distance traveling. With a amazing book in the CD player the miles roll past. Herriot's unbelievable writing style is both soothing and stimulating, and Christopher Timothy's recordings have become the standard I expect. I was very glad to be able to this since my library has stopped carrying a lot of of its audio books in favor of MP3 downloads or Kindle books. Thanks.

    I will forever have a spot in my heart for all things Herriot. I read the children’s books to my kids over and over again and we have visited the city of Thirsk in Yorkshire and the James Herriot Museum, which we is book however, has been my least favorite so far. Don’t obtain me wrong. I still liked it very much, just not nearly as much as the others that I’ve read. I didn’t particularly care for the begin of each chapter with the RAF/WWII anecdotes. If it had been just battle stories, I would have been fine with it. But then it would go off in a clumsy sort of method to his pre-war vet days and that was a bit distracting.
