'I grew up reading James Herriot's book and I'm delighted that thirty years on they are still every bit as charming, heartwarming and laugh-out-loud funny as they were then.' Kate Humble Fresh out of Veterinary College, and shoulder-deep in an uncooperative cow, James Herriot's first job is not panning out exactly as expected . . . To a Glaswegian like James, 1930s Yorkshire appears to offer an idyllic pocket of rural life in a rapidly changing world. But even life in the sleepy village of Darrowby has its challenges. On the one hand there are his new colleagues, Siegfried and Tristan Farnon, two brothers who attract a constant stream of local girls to whom James is strangely invisible. On the other he must contend with herds of semi-feral cattle, gruff farmers with incomprehensible accents and an overweight Pekingese called Tricki Woo . . . Heartbreaking and hilarious in equal measure, If Only They Could Talk is a book for all those who find laughter and joy in animals, and who know and understand the magic and beauty of Britain's wild places.… (mer)

I love All Creatures Great and Small, the tv series, so thought I should read the books, so I started with this first one. What a delight to read and enjoy again! If you love animals, then you must read these books. They are warm and a wonderful rendition of 1930's Yorkshire. We can all use a little walk down memory lane in these trying times, and I can think of no better place to start then with Herriot's memoirs. Thanks to my Brit TV fan club for turning me onto these stories. ( )

The first in the series, and the best. The episodes are naturally connected into a story of Herriot’s initial year in the Darrowby practice.

(Unless you buy the current Amazon Kindle edition, which for some inexplicable reason lacks the final chapter, which makes it like ... like Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band suddenly cut off at the end of Good Morning Good Morning.) ( )

This was a bit too G-rated for me. It isn't bad, just really bland. ( )

Title: If Only They Could Talk Series: All Creatures Great and Small Author: James Herriot Rating: 4.5 of 5 Stars Genre: Autobiography Pages: 205 Format: Scan Synopsis: Jim has just graduated from Vet school in England, at a time when the tractor is literally putting the horse out to pasture. Thankfully, he gets a post as an assistant in a small rural town and these memoirs are the various adventures, funny and sad, that he has with the animals and the owners. My Thoughts: Thoroughly enjoyed this. Herriot's writing style is laid back and calm and I was swept along with each story. Even in the midst of some of the sad stories, Herriot's ability to keep it light made it easier to deal with. At the same time, the funny stories didn't have me roaring with laughter, but they had me laughing out loud and nodding when human nature shown through, the same then as it is now. He doesn't shy away from describing some of the very nasty and gross things that a vet had to deal with. And he doesn't shy away from describing how he felt at 2am, after getting back from one call, grabbing all of 15min of sleep and then having another come in. The descriptions feel genuine. Not all shiny, not all crap. I also connected with his love of his job. On the good days and the bad. On a book'ish side of things, I didn't realize that this was re-released, or re-titled or something, as All Creatures Great and Small. I guess it isn't just indies who can screw their fanbase over.

I had made my mind up about these Herriot books without ever having read them. They are much better than i thought. The beginning to this one is excellent - I particularly liked paragraph 2: 'I lay face down on the cobbled floor in a pool of nameless muck, my arm deep inside the straining cow'...it builds on that.

They didn’t say anything about this in the books, I thought, as the snow blew in through the gaping doorway and settled on my naked back.
