This book is just as cute as the rest of his stories, but I was listening to it while I was swimming and it ultimately wasn't gripping enough to really keep me enraptured while I was doing laps. I need hard core story-candy for that. So, I am giving up. But take no offense James Herriot--I still heart you.

Also: to anyone who is curious about the '70s BBC television show based on his stories, I highly recommend watching one or two. They are horrible and not very interesting, however, hilarious due to terrible production values. That is to say, all the indoor shots were done a la Dr Who - broadcast live - and they used live animals which provides for comic issues. Plus, the outdoor shots featured the actor playing James Herriot repeatedly stripping off his clothes and sticking his arm up cows' asses.

Real cows.
His real arm.
Up to his shoulder in their asses.
You see the whole thing.
I am not kidding.

WHO WAS THIS ACTOR WHO TOOK THIS GIG? HOW DID PETA NOT SHUT IT DOWN?!

I find his hilarious and fascinatingly insane.
