    Loved all the James Herriot books My parents began to read them when I was maybe 10 or so and they would laugh out loud but I was far too cool to read what my parents did until one day I had a miserable toothache earache and to take my mind off it I began to read one of this series of books I too ended up laughing and simply being transported away to a different time, yet with places that seemed comfortingly familiar I m from Yorkshire originally and was living there at this time I wrote m Loved all the James Herriot books My parents began to read them when I was maybe 10 or so and they would laugh out loud but I was far too cool to read what my parents did until one day I had a miserable toothache earache and to take my mind off it I began to read one of this series of books I too ended up laughing and simply being transported away to a different time, yet with places that seemed comfortingly familiar I m from Yorkshire originally and was living there at this time I wrote my first ever fan letter to anyone, to James Herriot, and he replied I was smitten and even investigated on my own to find out his real name I also loved how he began to write the books kind of from a dare from his wife And that he began them later in life All things encouraging there

    Being a young vet myself, James Herriots books have been an amazing companion when I feel overwhelmed by my work Set in a small, Yorkshire village in the 1930 ies, mr Herriot writes about the ups and downs about his work and introduces us to the wonderful people in his area I have lauged out loud, cried a little and always been well entertained when reading his books Do not read them, if you want exhilarating murder stories, but if you need to smile and be happy about the wonderful world we Being a young vet myself, James Herriots books have been an amazing companion when I feel overwhelmed by my work Set in a small, Yorkshire village in the 1930 ies, mr Herriot writes about the ups and downs about his work and introduces us to the wonderful people in his area I have lauged out loud, cried a little and always been well entertained when reading his books Do not read them, if you want exhilarating murder stories, but if you need to smile and be happy about the wonderful world we live in with so many different creatures, do give it a try

    Great, great, great As always The only thing is, I have been reading his series one after another, gobbling them up like a pig in a swimming pool of scraps, and they are all merging into one The monk chapter is unrivalled in the comedy factor by any other books I ve ever read, ever It s hard to believe these characters were in fact real people I wonder if everyone knew a Tristan or a Siegfried equivalent in the thirties And now, eagerly onto the next Herriot book expectations are high.
