Good book well narrated.

Interesting account of life in the new vetinary practise in Yorkshire.
well narrated by Christopher Timothy and not at all like his narration as James Herriot. an enjoyable book with a touch of the Yorkshire dales in there too.

Not the best

Unless Christopher Timothy’s voice has totally changed over the years, this book is not narrated by him. After listening to the Herriot books with Timothy’s wonderful narration, this one was quite disappointing. The voice really makes a difference.

Yorkshire vet sories

Although not the same as the. James Herriot stories I enjoyed listening to this, and finding out all the ins and outs that were not told on the Yorkshire vet TV series I did enjoy listening to it.

Herriot's legacy is in safe hands.

Really enjoyable and insightful with plenty of laughs along the way. Alf and Donald would approve.

Surprisingly good

This book is not another book in the James Heriot series.

It is an account of a man his childhood, student career and vetinary stories and relationship with Skeldale house.

I partucularly liked it, when he was being opinionated. Particularly the bit about suicide awareness and the Foot and Mouth disaster in the 2000s (Sigh same mistakes being made again over Covid. Do Governments ever learn?)

Disappointment

So bad especially considering its association with James Herriot. It is painful to listen to.

disappointing

I thought I would be listening to a book about Peter Wright’s life in fact there is a lot more about his thoughts on life the environment and nurturing his own ego
Because boy does he think he’s incredible important
He isn’t the person you see on the Yorkshire vet that’s all for the cameras
He’s a total different person who at the very end of the book totally disappoints you
Only read this if you never want to watch the Yorkshire vet in the same way again

A pleasant journey in to Peter's vet life.

I have listened to this Audible book twice and enjoyed his book especially with the familiar voice of Christopher Timothy. Thank you to you both.
