A lovely memoir by a Scottish veterinary doctor living in Yorkshire. Herriot never disappoints If I had to choose one of his books that is the weakest, it would be this one The stories and characters are not quite as memorable as in his other books, and there are some rather off topic chaptersabout that in a bit But even if it is the weakest of the five, it is still a touching, engaging, funny, and perceptive book It picks up right where All Things Wise and Wonderful left off, with Herriot coming home from the RAF It chronicles life post war, and the picking up of dropped threads It jumps a bit, and several years seem to vanish without a trace Suddenly, Siegfried and Tristan are both married and moved out of Skeldale House As with his other books, the chronology bounces around, but that never really bothered me except that I d love to hearabout how when to whom Siegfried and Tristan got married This book chronicles his children, Jim and Rosie, as young children, and includes a story about a neglected boy and his dog that made me want to move to the country and adopt a bunch of kids and give each of them a rescued puppy Herriot s gifted that way.The chapters I felt were off topic were where he intersperses entries from his diaries from his trips to Russia and Istanbul They were very clearlylightly edited and less polished than the rest of his work They also didn t seem terribly germane They were not intriguing or well written enough to help me overcome my feeling of Yeah, yeah, but can we get back to Darrowby already That being said, even these chapters are awful, or bad, or anything They just made me read fast to get back to what I felt was the meat of the book his life as a vet in Yorkshire. I was supposed to have devoted my day to Bill Bryson s At Home today, since I ve got about 450 pages to get through between now and when my book group meets on Monday, but Christoper Timothy reading James Herriot is just too addicting Herriot s hundredth birthday was this week, so I had to mark the occasion by indulging in this volume No regerts I read the entire James Herriot series as a teenager, and loved them all I would recommend them for anyone who loves animals and animal stories. I simply love James Herriots heartwarming books When my children were small, we read and re read the children s version of the Herriot books, a beautifully illustrated Treasury, which I highly recommend We all loved the stories, our son especially Herriot s descriptions of Yorkshire are so wonderful that he made us want to visit So a few years ago, on our trip to England, we spent a few nights in Thirsk known as Darrowby in his books and we visited the Herriot Museum The World of James Herriot The museum is the actual surgery where the stories take place We stayed at a cozy little BB in Thirsk The owners grew up knowing James Herriott, who lived down the street with his family They re friends with the Herriott children not children any and went to school together We took this picture of the church where James Herriot and his wife got married It s just down the street from the Herriot Museum Some of my favorite quotes I only half realised at the time how lucky I was I had a demanding, round the clock job, and yet I had the company of my children at the same time So many men work so hard to keep the home going that they lose touch with the families who are at the heart of it, but it never happened to me Both Jimmy and Rosie, until they went to school, spent most of their time with me round the farms Parents are never sure that they have done the right thing They can only do what they think is right Maybe ye don t know it, Mr Herriot, but this is the best time of your life Do you think so Aye, there s no doubt about it When your children are young and growin up around ye that s when it s best It s the same for everybody, only a lot o folk don t know it and a lot find out when it s too late It doesn t last long, you know There are great days ahead I have to admit that this is my least favorite Herriot book of the four I have read this month.Oh, it had its moments of glory, such as the piano recital scene, Jimmy getting his farmer boots, the case of Fred the junk yard man s cat, Brandy the garbage diving Labrador, and a few others But I just couldn t get too interested in Herriot s trips to Russia and Istanbul as caretaker for animals being sent overseas I couldn t keep my focus in those chapters At least the trip to Istanbul was related in consecutive chapters The one to Russia was scattered between the usual stories of the Yorkshire Dales farm country and I was surprised every time it showed up As a matter of fact, the whole book seemed to be tossed together, rather than thought out and well connected I feel almost rude to say that, because there were some grand stories, but overall I simply did not enjoy this one as much as the previous three This book ends with the sense of a true final chapter, and I know from other reading that this was the last planned book, but that later Herriot did write oneI am about to start that one now, the final lap of my Herriot marathon.
