Publisher's Summary

The fourth volume of memoirs from the author who inspired the BBC series All Creatures Great and Small.

Finally home from London after his wartime service in the RAF, James Herriot is settling back into life as a country vet. While the world has changed after the war, the blunt Yorkshire clients and menagerie of beasts with weird and wonderful ailments remain the same. But between his young son, Jimmy, trailing him around aping his every move, stubborn farmers refusing to try his 'new-fangled' treatments and a goat that has eaten 293 tomatoes, Darrowby is far from quiet. And with another baby on the way, life is about to get even more chaotic....

Since they were first published, James Herriot's memoirs have sold millions of copies and entranced generations of animal lovers. Charming, funny and touching, The Lord God Made Them All is a heartwarming story of determination, love and companionship from one of Britain's best-loved authors.

Always good and this ones different

Been a fan for years and thought I had read them all. This tells a different story but well done and would not be the same without Timothy narrating.

Pure James Herriot

I bought this book to help me fall asleep at night, but quickly fell under the spell of James Herriot and started listening to large chuncks of it.

Lots of short stories from when his children were young, covering the dawn of antibiotics.

I found the Russia story fascinating. There was a time before the internet and mobile phones.

Recording choppy, and what’s with the out-of-context startling music selection?!

I usually appreciate audiobooks even with musical interruptions if the story and performance are stellar, but dear dudes at audio renaissance, what’s with the odd music chopping stories midway? Is that your equivalent of commercial breaks?! And sound quality choppy too.

Another super book to listen to

Loved listening to Christopher Timothy’s voice reading one of my favourite stories with such passion. His voices and the incidental music allow me to really picture the scene. I listen to about 25 mins every night to lull me to sleep, it is so relaxing to listen to.

Faulty recording

The only fault I could find was the recording itself was poor, other than that Christopher Timothy was perfect.

If only there weren't musical interludes

Loved this series when I read it as a kid and when I watched it on BBC and the new adaptation and these audible series makes a welcome accompaniment whilst in the kitchen or at bed time.......cracking narration by Christopher Timothy....... the only screaming travisty is the crash of the instrumental interludes. Like adverts on TV, the volumes seems to rocket, killing the benefits of a sleep timer.
