      What would the world be like without animals?I can't believe I've never heard of James Herriot before. He writes the most beautiful books. There's a lot I could say about this book. But I won't. I'll just say one thing. Animals are awesome, both great and small. Here are a few pictures of my babies. I don't actually own this squirrel. She likes to sneak in, steal my vegetables, and tease my cats.

      Oh dear heavens, a cow is having a difficult birth! A cat's sick! The local lord's thorough bred has skinned its knee! To live in a world where these are your most worrisome worries is to live in the world of James Herriot, the pen name of the real-life mid-20th century country vet of the Yorkshire Dales in northern England. Loosely based on his experiences, these delightful tales ("drama cozies" I call them) take place in an idyllic setting: The Yorkshire Dales and the North York MoorsMuker in [...]

      I have this problem--an addiction, really--called BOOKS. I start reading one and I usually can't stop until I realize that awful smell is ME! or my kids do that incessant-tapping-on-my-shoulder thing to ask if dinnertime will be occurring before bedtime (I know, I know. Probably shouldn't have put that in print. Now CPS is gonna come after me.)Point being: This book was NOT like that. I could read one chapter each night, then put it down without my brain going all twitchy (those of you fellow ad [...]

      It's semi-astonishing that I've been married to a veterinarian for a year and a half, which followed a year and nine months of dating/engagement, in which time I went on many emergency calls with her to treat sick horses (and the occasional goat), adopted a dog and a second cat to go with the first one my dearly beloved already owned, and various and other sundry proximity-to-a-vet type stuff has gone down AND YET only now have I finally said to myself, "Hunh, I should read that James Herriot gu [...]

      4.5 stars. I adored this book and swallowed it whole when I first read it back in the day, and grabbed the three sequels as soon as I could lay my hands on them. All four of these old paperback books still have a place of honor on my downstairs bookshelf, wherein reside all manner of classics, old SF and fantasy, ancient English lit textbooks, and other old books. It's quite the massive collection - a lifetime's worth of books that have been lovingly and thoughtfully - or sometimes not - collect [...]

      I've read this book so many times over the years, yet every single time I get to the last word on the last page I am ready to go back to chapter one and start all over. From the first day of Herriot's arrival at Skeldale House, being greeted by a tsunami of leaping, barking dogs, to the week of tuberculin testing that brings the book to a close, we share the moments of joy, laughter, tears, nerves, confidence, mix-ups and triumphs involved in his Yorkshire veterinary practice of the 1930's.We me [...]

    7. Mike (the Paladin)

      There are no negatives in this book. When I first read it (them as I read Herriot's vet stories one book after another)I would read them late at night in bed after my wife had gone to sleep. Frequently I'd be laughing silently, but laughing so hard I'd shake the bed. Now and again I'd look over and see her just looking at me having been awakened by my convulsions of mirth. Then I'd end up reading aloud for hours us both much needed rest.

    8. Tom Mathews

      I've read a lot of James Herriot's stories over my life but haven't read this first volume of his beloved series of memoirs. It is delightful, touching and often knee-slappingly funny. I highly recommend it. FYI: The audiorecording of the book is narrated by Christopher Timothy, the actor who played Herriot on the BBC series based on the books.

    9. Tracey

      James Herriot's books are, for me, the ultimate in comfort books. Which is odd, it occurred to me while listening to this audiobook; there's blood and gore and uterine explorations and knackerings and death and cruelty… There is casual mention of deeds and practices which would turn PETA's collective hair white. But I've been reading these books since I was about ten. (Which, considering the language, is surprising. Them Yorkshire farmers were salty, mind.) And then there was the wonderful tv [...]

      I have absolutely loved James Herriot's (or should I perhaps say Alfred Wight's) All Creatures Great and Small ever since I first read this book (which is actually an omnibus and consists of If Only They Could Talk and It Shouldn't Happen to a Vet) at the age of twelve (in the autumn of 1978, and thus, All Creatures Great ands Small was in fact one of the first longer novels I read entirely in English, with a dictionary in hand of course, and aside from my immense reading pleasure, I was also ex [...]

    11. Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books)

      As a future veterinarian growing up, I was told by many people to read this book. It is apparently considered a rite of passage for those who want to enter the veterinary field. Finally I did read it when I was in my junior year of college before vet school. It was wonderful. Herriot is a hilarious,heart-warming and talented author. He writes with an ease that is addictive to read. He manages to imbue every chapter with scenes that are laugh out loud funny, but also scenes that will bring tears [...]

    12. Kellyn Roth

      Nothing has ever been as charming, amusing, and almost magical as this series. The setting, the era, the writing style, the stories just lovely. I'd recommend it to any lover of animals, England, or the country.

    13. Anne

      Sale's over for this book, too. Boo.***********************************This book, the first in a series of memoirs by a Yorkshire country vet, is one of my favorite books ever. I read the whole set repeatedly throughout my childhood and, even now, I reread them every year or two. They are amazing, and this one is on sale for Kindle right now at $1.99. If you've never read James Herriot, please, please get a copy and try it on. It's the perfect thing for any animal lover. Get a copy here.

      When I was five, I wanted to be an artist. I was crazy about drawing. When I wasn't fighting with my sibs over something, you'd likely find me holed away, either reading or drawing. My dad was an artist, you see. Sure, running that liquor store in the ghetto was what paid the bills, but it was firmly stamped in my six-year-old mind that he was meant for a higher calling. I mean, look at the gallon of milk he painted on the side of the store. Was it not the perfect rendering of a gallon of milk? [...]

      I should start with a warning: this book contains some graphic explanations of animal anatomy and veterinary procedures that I would have preferred be left ignorant about, however the charming descriptions of idyllic country life and their inhabitants more than make up for it. I was surprised at how funny this book is; I should have read it years ago! My favourite episodes involve Mrs. Pumphrey and Tricki Woo. I’d recommend the audio version narrated by Christopher Timothy who does an excellen [...]

    16. Lisa A

      This book reads like a consecutive series of individual diary entries told from the perspective of a newly graduated veterinarian beginning his journey into the world of employment. The stories were sometimes comical and other times more serious with a plethora of medical terminology thrown in. I am not particularly squeamish and I usually relish challenging myself with comprehending "doctor-speak" but in a few chapters the graphic surgical references overshadowed the personal experience that th [...]

    17. Sariah

      This book is well, spectacular, in a normal day way. James Herriot had a way of showing how little annoying, silly, and/or normal everyday events are truly remarkable. This book has those fuuny moments, embarrasing moments with those sweet ones that can only be called miracles.I have really enjoyed this book and I recomend it to everyone, whether you like animals or not (This one is different from other animal stories, because its not only about animals, but about a world of people with animals [...]

    18. SilviaG

      Que libro tan sencillo, enternecedor, y a la vez, divertido (algunas anécdotas me han hecho reír a carcajadas). Me encanta su atmósfera, sus descripciones, sus personajes. Creo que seguiré con la vida de este veterinario en un pequeño pueblo inglés

    19. Razzberry

      I wasn't sure that I would like James Herriot's works when I first came across them. A collection of animal stories by a country vet, I thought, but how wrong I was. I was well and truly engrossed the minute I started. His tales are so much more than that! They are beautifully crafted stories that are funny, touching, and quite simply, likeable.What makes his memoirs truly remarkable are the vivid pictures he paints of the Yorkshire Dales, his self-depracation and the evident love and respect he [...]

      Most people know by now that James Herriot wrote about his life as a country vet in the 1930s and ‘40s. I strongly recommend this memoir to every Anglophile and animal lover. The stories are hilarious in some parts and brought me to tears in others. It is books like these that teach me to appreciate all the little things around us. When my children were small, we read and re-read the children’s versions of the Herriot books. We all loved them, our son especially. Herriot’s descriptions of [...]

    21. Bevan

      Those of a certain age will remember the popularity of these books and the spinoff TV series. In retrospect it seemed strange that the gruelling life of a vet in an isolated part of Yorkshire in the 1930s could be an international bestseller. I recently happened across mention of James Herriot and thought I would engage in some nostalgia.This book is a model of memoir. I now appreciate more than in my youth why these books were so popular. Although the tales are entertaining Herriot's writing is [...]

    22. Book Concierge

      Book on CD read by Christopher Timothy This is the book that launched a successful series of memoirs of a Yorkshire country vet in the years before World War II. I am definitely *not* an animal person but Herriot’s reminiscences of his early efforts to build a practice were delightful, if a bit repetitious. This is a re-read for me. I first read it back in the early 1970s when it was a fairly new book. I probably bought it as a “book-club” selection from Book of the Month or Literary Guild [...]

    23. Ashley

      OK, I admit it. More than once as I was reading this collection, the words of Kramer (yes, that Kramer) popped into my head: “Oh, I’ll take a vet over an MD any day. They’ve got to be able to cure a lizard, a chicken, a pig, a frog—all on the same day.” And for more than 50 years, in the Yorkshire Dales of northern England, that’s exactly what James Herriot did. (Well, maybe not the frogs. But pigs and cows and sheep and horses and dogs, yes.) All Creatures Great and Small is the fir [...]

    24. Zoe

      I had always been curious about this book, because there was such a great fuss over it that persisted well into my life (it was written shortly before I was born). Well, the fuss is all true - this is one of the best books I have ever read - an autobiography, technically, about a simple man who loves his job. Not only is he a good author, but he is perhaps the best observer of people I have ever seen - he can make 20 english farmers all seem different. I laughed frequently - his descriptive skil [...]

    25. Katie Ziegler (Life Between Words)

      I should maybe bump this up to five stars, because I could see this going down as one of my favorites. I was so utterly and completely charmed by this book. Alternately laugh out loud funny and poignant to the point of tears, this book has a magical concoction of sweetness and grit. Plus, great storytelling and larger than life characters. I loved it!

    26. Teresa

      Llevaba mucho tiempo con este libro en mi lista de pendientes y con muchas expectativas que sinceramente no se han terminado de hacer realidad cuando por fin lo he leído. Está bien escrito si y las historias sobre el veterinario rural protagonista son entrañables pero ha llegado un punto que se me ha hecho repetitivo, siempre contando los mismos tipos de casos. Está bien para entretener sobre todo si te gustan los animales pero de ahí no pasa.

    27. Sinta Nisfuanna

      Membaca buku ini rasanya nano-nano, kadang sedih, kadang tertawa, kadang terhenyak, kadang tersentuh, kadang jengkel, kadang merenung, dan banyak kadang-kadang lainnya ditambah lagi cara bercerita Herriot mengalir dan santai.Pastinya akan membaca buku-buku Herriot lainnya yang masih antri di timbunan :DUlasan selengkapnya >>Segala Makhluk Besar dan Kecil

    28. Bookworm

      I just ate this book up in chunks! We've had James Herriot's books around the house for as long as I can remember, yet I never really read through one completely until now, very sad to say. Very well written, endearing, with a sweet thread of romance. On a side note, there was a lot of bad language through the book sadly, just a heads up.:s I really wish I could have met James and Seigfried, and Helen in real life-wouldn't that have been thrilling!
