it was amazing
Read in October, 2010

This is the first somewhat extracurricular book I have read in a long time. It is, however, also the most touching book. I have a dog, so I can easily connect with Herriot's passion for the animal. While the book is a bit thick, every minute of reading it is enjoyable.

As a writer, Herriot showed me that sometimes it is not so important playing on the emotions of your readers as it is to simply tell your story. The collection of stories in Herriot's book does the job of getting the reader emotionally involved. Through not going out of his way, Herriot makes the text less contrived and more relatable. A truly fantastic book about a fascinating animal.
