Not one of his best works by any stretch of the imagination. I have been trying to get into this book, but I'm going to return it.

I found this book spellbinding, and thoroughly enjoyed every moment of it! I was sad that it ended because it felt like leaving friends behind. I will be looking forward to more from this author

I finished this in one sitting! I really enjoyed the story, I only had an issue with the change over from the point of view of the narrator. I still don't understand why it kept changing...that was confusing. Overall very much enjoyed this book!

OUTSTANDING!

I could not put this book down! It kept me riveted from beginning to end! The only problem I had with it, is that it ended at all. Beautifully written, beautifully read. I will definitely be looking for her next book.

I read James harriott's books when I was a young girl, and listening to them has been such a joy. This narrator is outstanding, the perfect man for the job!

I read this book and all of James Herriot other books when I was a teenager. I loved them then, and I love them now. It is a beautifully written story, or actually many stories, and the narrator does an outstanding job. I cannot recommend more highly! Not many books get 5 out of 5 from me!

This book is extremely difficult to listen to because of the way it is written. The author jumps back and forth between first person and second, but the narrator doesn't make it clear by changing his voice. if you can see the written word, and see the punctuation, it would make sense but when you hear it is very difficult to comprehend. I also question the detail in which the author goes when it comes to describing the murders and the disposal of the bodies. This seems to me to be excessive, and God forbid any if the family members of the victims read this. it is also my considered opinion that it was not necessary to go into gory detail about how the animals were abused and slaughtered. This book comes across as being more of a tabloid style story. I come away from this audio experience feeling slimey, needing a shower and wishing I had not listened.

not what I was hoping

I found this book to be presented as being along the same lines as the Tattooist of Auschwitz. It's not. it's a fiction, and although the premise is extremely interesting, the story present several situations that are highly unlikely.. I do not read romance novels and that's pretty much what this was.
