Publisher's Summary

His former boss, now partner, Siegfried, lives downstairs with Siegfried's brother Tristan.Herriot continues the rich and rewarding day-to-day life of a small-town veterinarian, and we journey with him across the dales, meeting a whole new cast of unforgettable characters - humans, dogs, horses, lambs, parakeets - all of them drawn with the same infinite fascination, affection and insight that made James Herriot one of the most beloved authors of our time. And all the stories are warmly, evocatively told by the world-renowned "voice" of Dr. Herriot: Christopher Timothy.

Marred by background noise

Glorious story read by the very actor who brought James Harriot to life in the British series, how could anyone ask for more? How about a background free of indistinct chatter loud enough to be a significant distraction? The distracting verbage waxed and waned, and could only be ignored when I turned the volume down so soft that I then lost the nuances of Timothy's wonderful performance. I was disappointed to say the least. I do not recall hearing this noise on the CDs I borrowed from the library years ago, read by the same narrator. Is this a different edition, or just poor importing into the Audible data base?

Top of the Class

This is one of the best authors and readers I've read. Both are 5 out of 5. The subject matter here is not something I thought I would like. I was pleasantly fascinated by it. I enjoyed each listening session very much. I am very happy I experienced it. You really need to experience one of these books and then evaluate for yourself if the subject matter will keep you coming back. The book contains a number of experiences of a country vet in Scotland. Some of the stories will stay with me the rest of my life. I never got the feeling that this book was repetitive, but I can see how future books may become that way.
