i normally don't read abridged versions or excerpts from books and wouldn't have picked this up had i known that this is largely that. but i'm glad, in the end, that i did. because honestly i wasn't going to read h is 7 or so books, and this gives me a little taste of most of them and of him and his life and stories. it also comes with explanatory commentary to let us know, before the passage from his book is read, what was going on in his life at the time. so i feel like i have a little summary and snippets of his stories and writing that i wouldn't have before, and that has made me appreciate what he did and his writing. if you've read him before, there is no point to this, but it's a lovely little introduction or a good overview, and i'm glad to have read it.… (mer)

This book made me want to become a country vet, and I don't particularly like animals! I loved Herriot's stories of the unique characters in town, and his descriptions of the various procedures he performed on the animals.

Honestly, the only downside is that there is quite a lot of profanity, especially God's name used as a curse word.

I really enjoyed listening to the audiobook! I generally liked all the accents , but the narrator did sometimes run his sentences together, making it harder to understand who was saying what. I also liked the music at the beginning and ending of each disc, but disliked that it overlapped with the narration, making it harder to hear the actual book.… (mer)

In a world where the pace of life seems to be ever-accelerating, James Herriot's stories offer a delightful escape to a simpler time, reminding us of the beauty and profound connections that can be found in the most ordinary and extraordinary moments of life. The Wonderful World of James Herriot is a treasure trove of these moments, making it an essential addition to any bookshelf and a testament to the enduring legacy of a remarkable author.
