Buku ini sebenarnya rangkaian cerita pendek James Herriot dalam kehidupannya sebagai seorang dokter hewan dan juga seorang pilot. Kebanyakan ceritanya sih tentang pekerjaannya sebagai dokter hewan. Ada sukanya dan tentu saja ada dukannya.

Gue nggak terlalu suka buku ini sebenarnya, mungkin karena ada term-term yang gue nggak ngerti. Sepertinya sih, karena gue itu nggak terlalu familiar dengan istilah-istilah dokter hewan. Jadinya, gue agak lost in translation di tengah jalan.

Ada juga beberapa ce

The third book on the life of a British veterinarian.
The author juxtaposes his time in the RAF during WWII to remember back on the bucolic
and innocent days working as a vet (not veteran).

Light and enjoyable reads, I wonder if I'm too young to really appreciate these books.
The times seems more simple out in the British country in a time where the modernity of
science has yet to pervade the agricultural landscape. Was this so real?

The characters are, sometimes, overwhelmingly British, and the anima

I have read this book at least 3 times and will be reading it again soon. It is everything I would want in a book. Hard to put down. Funny, touching. Read it to my children, to my grandchildren, to my-self more than once and will be reading it to my 85 year old mother next.

In the information on this book it states 373 pages. That is the number of pages in the second half. Since this book is actually 2 books in one.
The actual # of pages is 805. But worth everyone of them.

I love all the Herriot Books and have read them all. Yorkshire vet chronicles the tales of his many decades of practice with two other vets. The stories are warm hearted, cozy and charming - not everyone's cup of tea, but definitely mine.

If you love animals you will love both of these books! I was so sad when I finished them. I can't wait to read is other books.

Classic, an enjoyable read for any animal lover. I enjoy the first half of the collection much more than this half, since Herriot talks more about his experience in WWII, which, honestly, bored me.

Even though these books have been out for some time, I've only recently read them and fell in love! The stories from this English vet involving the animal world is amusing AND educational!
