it was amazing
Read in January, 2010

I absolutely loved this book! :o) James Herriot is such a good writer. In an early chapter of the book, he manages to summarise his relationship with one of his assistants so well that at the end of the chapter I felt so nostalgic and was sad that the fellow had left the practice. Herriot does the same thing with another assistant, but describes their relationship throughout the book, leaving me with the same feeling of sadness that this person is no longer there.
I was also pleased to come across some old friends : some of the cats I met in James Herriot's Cat Stories are from this book.
Also, having read some of James Herriot's other books, I knew which house his family would end up living in, so I was entertained to read of how they finally found it, which is told in this book.
All in all, a wonderful read. James Herriot really has a way with words and each chapter was such a pleasure to read.
