Críticas

These are the delightful, semi-autobiographical stories of veterinary surgeon James Herriot (real name Alf Wight) who trained in Glasgow then began practicing in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors in the 1940s.

From his arrival at Skeldale House, Darrowby, the stories are captivating. James deals with all manner of veterinary challenges, ornery farmers, and stoical country people. He seems to spend an inordinate amount of time with his arm right up a large animal’s back end. There are other memorable characters who add to the cosy drama of these stories: his very English employer Siegfried Farnon, Siegfried’s loveable hapless brother Tristan, the backbone of the practice, Mrs. Hall the housekeeper, rich elderly widower Mrs. Pumphrey and her pampered Pekinese Tricky Woo. And last but not least the beautiful farmer’s daughter Helen.

I thoroughly enjoyed rereading this book with its animal stories, the humour, and the wholesome romance. James is a nice, thoroughly likeable character and the book gives an insight into life in the Dales in the 1940s and the life lead by the Yorkshire farmers.
