Description

The second volume of memoirs from the author who inspired the BBC series All Creatures Great and Small.

Now settled into the sleepy Yorkshire village of Darrowby and married to Helen the farmer's daughter, James Herriot thinks he's finally got himself sorted. But life as a vet in the 1930s was never going to be easy. Quite aside from his unpredictable colleagues, brothers Siegfried and Tristan Farnon, he must contend with new-fangled medical techniques, delivering calves after far too much homemade wine, and a grudge-holding dog called Magnus who never forgets. And then, with Britain on the verge of war, James faces a decision that could separate him from Darrowby - and Helen - forever....

Since they were first published, James Herriot's memoirs have sold millions of copies and entranced generations of animal lovers. Charming, funny and touching, All Things Bright and Beautiful is a heartwarming story of determination, love and companionship from one of Britain's best-loved authors.

Brilliantly written

This book was wonderful and would have been better if only the editor kept the music out of it, I did not feel it added and often it diminished from the book.
On more than one occasion the music was between sentences in the same paragraph or even words in the same sentence, each musical piece was about 30 seconds long and often overlapped the end of the sentence and the beginning of the next.
In general I think the editor and narrator did a poor job of it and would not recommend their works to anyone, James Herriot is still a great author and should be read/listened to.

Christopher Timothy is excellent as usual

And there are no glitches in this version as well. Several sad points in the story. Change can be sad

why the music?

love this story, but I really felt the music was annoying... i find it a very strange idea to add music in at random places in an audiobook

weniger Musik ist mehr

Die Erzählungen stehen für sich, die ziemlich willkürlichen Musikstücke stören eher. Wenige Leitmotive hätten gereicht.
