Myslela jsem si, že to bude nějaký ten roztomilý veterinář, který popisuje srdceryvné historky o nemocných psech , nečekala jsem meziválečný anglický venkov, samorostlé farmáře a zběsilého veterináře a jeho bratra.

I am really looking forward to reading the rest in the series - this is the sort of comfort reading that I know I can look forward to if I need a break from real life. Many of Herriot’s works—including All Creatures Great and Small, All Things Bright and Beautiful, All Things Wise and Wonderful, The Lord God Made Them All, and Every Living Thing—became international bestsellers and have been adapted for film and television.To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Beautifully-written, lots of laugh out loud moments, stories of the author's first year of practice as a newly-qualified vet in the Yorkshire Dales. In this book at least, there's really nothing heavy, it's all just entertaining, fun, and light, but very well written.

This has been a favourite of mine for nearly 35 years, so encountering it in another guise, I was more than happy to re-read it.He is also a sharp observer of the people, animals and their association in an agrarian society as these stories offer a delightful insight born out of his observations into the country life of Yorkshire. Martin's Press in New York City, received a copy and arranged to have the first two books published as a single volume in the United States. I read these works by James Herriot for the first time almost twenty years ago, and I’ve reread them countless times since then.

As you probably guessed from the titles, James was a veterinary surgeon in the 1930s in Yorkshire, England. In ‘ If Only They Could Talk’, the first book in a series of his semi-autobiographies, the reader gets acquainted with a young James Herriot, just out of veterinary college, taking up a rural practice in the town of Thirsk, Yorkshire during late 1930s.

Wight was just as interested in their owners as he was in his patients, and his writing is, at root, an amiable but keen comment on the human condition. I am left, standing there, knowing if i respond too slowly, the asker will label me completely stupid, or an inability to speak, no doubt explaining their previous views of my (!
