Publisher's Summary

From the frontlines of modern medicine, Tell Me Where It Hurts is a fascinating insider portrait of a veterinarian, his furry patients, and the blend of old-fashioned instincts and cutting-edge technology that defines pet care in the 21st century. Dr. Trout takes the listener on a vicarious journey through 24 intimate, heartrending hours in his life. His wry, companionable voice offers enlightening and engaging anecdotes about cuddly (or not-so-cuddly) pets and their variously zany, desperate, and demanding owners. If you've ever had a pet or special place in your heart for furry friends, Dr. Trout's inspiring account of loving and healing animals is for you.

So close, yet not quite.

I happen to be a real James Herriott fan and I suppose I thought, unfairly, that I was going to hear a modern day version of his writing. But, of course, times have changed and it could not be quite the same endearing and folksy writing. That said, Dr Trout's work is fascinating and he is a very kind man. A real animal lover, he clearly favors dogs, which makes him top notch in my book!

Narrator Simon Vance is one of my favorites -- one of his most excellent narrations is Charles Dickens' David Copperfield! And as any audiobook aficionado knows, the narrator quite literally makes or breaks the reading. A terrific narrator can save a mediocre book, but a mediocre narrator cannot save a terrific book.

- ButterLegume "Books on tape -- every commuter's friend. American history is my choice but then, in books, as in music, I'm all over the place."

A good listen for animal lovers.

This book was a very entertaining listen for me, humorous and fast paced enough to keep it ever interesting. Well done.
