it was amazing

Maybe I give 5 star ratings too liberally, but this book was just as wonderful as Herriot's first memoir, All Creatures Great and Small. Delightful, hilarious writing with lots of little life lessons, vignettes about a large variety of people and animals, and so much understanding and empathy. Reading this second novel felt like coming home because of how much I enjoyed the first.

I did feel there was a bit more "gore" in this one...he is after all an animal doctor and surgeon, so be warned if medical things make you queasy.

Highly recommended to animal lovers and lovers of English literature. Such beautiful writing!
