Publisher's Summary

In this third enchanting collection of stories, James Herriot, the world's most beloved veterinarian, picks up where All Things Bright and Beautiful left off: World War II has begun, and James has been inducted into the RAF. We see him at training camp and we go back with him to Yorkshire - on real trips as he breaks away to see Helen, who is about to have a baby, and on trips of reverie as he recalls the dales, the animals, and the Yorkshire people who have so enriched his life. We meet old friends again - his partner Siegfried, the zany Tristan, the bon vivant Granville Bennett - and scores of new folk, each with a story to tell. James Herriot is back and, as one reviewer said of his work, "If ever you have loved a friend, human or otherwise, these stories are for you."

Excellent story, Poor editing

I love the James Herriot books, and this one is a favorite. Christopher Timothy does a great job as the narrator. However, in the middle of Chapter 50, the story changes completely, and then the end of the book is in the middle of chapter 55! Then it takes up where it left off in Chapter 50. Editors, where are you?

Great but flawed

Any additional comments?

I first discovered this entire series as a child and loved them then. Listening to them as an adult, I find them even more remarkable. However, this particular edition (or at least my download) of All Things Wise and Wonderful has a major flaw. It seems that at some point, the dvds the Audible edition was created from was put out of order. The end of the book occurs about an hour or so before the recording actually ends. I suspect that a single dvd was placed out of order.

Other than that, these are remarkable stories about fascinating people and animals. I highly recommend them.
