Summary

A celebration of the different creatures - great and small - that this Yorkshire vet has come to know and love.

Yorkshire vet Julian Norton has spent his days as a mixed practice vet treating animals across the bucolic Yorkshire Dales. Julian's voice and humour - well known from his titular role in Channel 5's long-running series The Yorkshire Vet - leap out every minute as stories of drama and excitement unfold.

Whether treating dogs, cows or sheep, Julian has come to recognise and appreciate the very particular ways in which healthy and happy animals express their well-being and contentment. Lambs will skip and gambol, cows will ruminate placidly and the gentle sounds and soft curious facial expression of alpacas or llamas are enough to lift the spirits and warm the coldest of hearts. 

Here in All Creatures, Julian tells the stories of each of the eight species he has the good fortune to care for every day. He shares the heartwarming and life-affirming characteristics of animal happiness and once again reminds us of the power these creatures have to bring joy to us all.

Interesting pronunciation

I’m a great fan of the Yorkshire Vet programme and usually read the book. I decided to download the narrated copy for a change. The narrator consistently mis pronounced veterinary incorrectly somehow adding another set of syllables. Interestingly I didn’t know that a cat’s nether regions were its perennial area! Surely he meant perineal! If this kind of thing doesn’t bug you you’ll be fine but I found it irritating

Most Enjoyable

I am rewriting my review and this will teach me not to write another until I have completed the book. Originally I did not give the narration a favourable review but as I was determined to finish the book I found that I did get used to Simon Slater’s narration. There is no doubt he approaches it differently to Christopher Timothy whom I had been listening to in my last book but I did eventually adjust and enjoy the stories and narration.
