A New Favorite!

I discovered James Harriott's books (All Creatures Great and Small) about his days as a vet about 40 years ago. I have loved them since.

This book has surpassed them! I can relate to the events because I live in a farming community. My friend who is from El Paso, about 300 miles from La Mesa, listened to it as we drove just to hear a West Texas accent. I don't think she heard the stories at all so I sent it to her for free.

Normally, I just move on to the next book in my library when I finish. Not this one! I'm starting over as soon as I finish typing this.

Incredible Book and Narrator Lewis Arlt

This book is terrific in so many ways. The American wit and wisdom is so refreshing as are the stories. What really makes the book is the narrator Lewis Arlt. He literally makes you believe you are sitting across from and listening to a country vet from Texas reminisce about his life. I listen to so many books and in my opinion the narrator makes it or breaks it. If you have listened to the Remains of the Day narrated by Simon Prebble you know what I mean. Lewis Arlt is in that rarefied class and this book is a gem.
