Publisher's Summary

With two years experience behind him, James Herriot still feels privileged working on the beautiful Yorkshire moors as assistant vet at the Darrowby practice. Time to meet yet more unwilling patients and a rich cast of supporting owners.

Full of hilarious tales of his unpredictable boss Siegfreid Farnon, his charming student brother Tristan, the joys of spring lambing, a vicious cat called Boris and James' jinxed courtship of the lovely Helen, this third volume of memoirs is sure to delight hardened fans and new readers of James Herriot titles alike.

Very good, but!

As with the previous James Herriot stories I've listened to, "Let Sleeping Vets Lie" is very interesting listening, with humour sprinkled throughout. Thoroughly enjoyable!

A note for those reading my review; if you haven't already listened to "All Creatures Great and Small", leave it until later. That book takes excerpts from other books by James Herriot, including this book and seemingly gives an overview of a few other books of his. The same might apply to "All Things Bright and Beautiful", which I haven't purchased or listened to at this point in time. It's somewhat annoying that I paid for the "All Creatures Great and Small" Audiobook. I listened to the two books that were apparently released first, then 'All Creatures', followed by this book, meaning that I was listening 'in repeat' some stories.

This is another great Herriot book which I read a long time ago. I really enjoyed listening to this book Christopher Timothy has a very good way of not just reading but performing the book which is what makes it great. Loved It.

Warm 🐶.

Definitely a better story than the previous one, this one has more of a plot.
