This is not a book that cant be put down and returned to later. That does not mean it is not better-written and funnier than some novels Ive read straight through. And every time the authors boss goes overboard and I feel righteously angry on behalf of the author, I realize that he had his revenge by recording his bosss nutty behavior in his books. First in a series; sequels include All Things Bright and Beautiful, All Things Wise and Wonderful, The Lord God Made Them All, and Every Living Thing.

James Herriot's love for animals shines through in these feel good stories of his life as a country vet in England. From taking care of kittens and puppies all the way up through large farm animals, Mr. Herriot always has an interesting anecdote and lesson it impart. His entire series are a pleasure to read.
