a wonderful book.

It was a wonderful book. Wonderfully read by Christopher Timothy. If you like the Yorkshire vet series or Yorkshire itself it is a must !!

Herriot's legacy is in safe hands.

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

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.

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.
