    It Shouldn't Happen to a Vet is the second book in the series of All Creatures Great and Small This was just as enjoyable as the first book and once again we are led on a delightful journey as Yorkshire vet James Herriot attends to his daily appointments No two days are the same when you are working with animals but James just takes it entirely in his stride and tends to the animals the best way he knows howWhilst on his daily routines he crosses paths with the beautiful Helen James is immediately taken with her and feels an attraction between them but does Helen feel the same way?Another beautifully written story with many laugh out loud moments as well as a few sad moments I thoroughly loved this book and look forward to reading the next book in the series Highly recommended

    This is the 2nd of James Herriot's books The first I just casually liked But since then I have fallen in love If you ever feel like cuddling by the fireplace with a cup of hot chocolate but don't have a fireplace and have run out of hot chocolate this book will suit just as well They are just full of stories that make me laugh I have to tell Brandon at least one or two each night and he laughs too Also I am not an animal lover in the smallest degree but I am while reading these If you really only like fast paced page turners do NOT pick up this book This is like having the best storyteller ever in your living room every night

    Loved all the James Herriot books My parents began to read them when I was maybe 10 or so and they would laugh out loud but I was far too cool to read what my parents did until one day I had a miserable toothacheearache and to take my mind off it I began to read one of this series of books I too ended up laughing and simply being transported away to a different time yet with places that seemed comfortingly familiar I'm from Yorkshire originally and was living there at this time I wrote my first ever fan letter to anyone to James Herriot and he replied I was smitten and even investigated on my own to find out his real name I also loved how he began to write the books kind of from a dare from his wife And that he began them later in life All things encouraging there

    I needed a break from depressing dystopian blood and gore so I shifted gears and went back to my tried and true James Herriot Although his stories do involve nearly an eual amount of blood and gore 1930′s veterinarian style they’re FAR uplifting A much needed respite to say the least And I believe the last of James Herriot’s books that I’ve not read– what the hell am I supposed to use as palette cleanser now?As always James Herriot’s uaint little stories of life as a veterinarian in long ago England offered a pleasant easy read escape from the real world Rolling hills English accents darling animals up the wazoo and an occasional bloody medical scene to keep things interesting You really couldn’t ask for a better take a break from everything book Now just keep your fingers crossed that an as yet undiscovered James Herriot manuscript is sitting on some dusty bookshelf somewhere waiting for just the right moment to reveal its’ animal loveliness to the world

    I am a late comer to the Herriot books but am utterly enchanted by the 1930's rural Yorkshire setting and the poignant gently comic stories about the people and their animals The old social customs are fascinating as are the old veterinary treatments that have been replaced by modern drugs and procedures Each vignette is a vivid glimpse into a world long gone but full of charm and pathos I really love these books and want to read everything the author ever wrote

    A funny book of stories from junior vet James Herriot when he was working in the 1930s in Yorkshire

  7. Maria Maria says:

    I remember reading one of the illustrated omnibus collections of James Herriot All Creatures Great and Small I absolutely loved itAnd I loved this one too It's just as funny as all the others especially the terrible luck he seems to have whenever he goes out on a date with HelenI laughed and snorted a good deal of the time as well as gasping out I REMEMBER TRICKY WOO a few timesLovely book

    James Herriot is delightful at any age I've been reading him since I was in my early teens and now in my late twenties he still makes me laugh out loud His little world is so charming his characters so real I wish I could holiday there A real treat I recommend this to anyone who loves to read and loves to laugh

  9. Julie Julie says:

    I read all these as a teenager and forgot just how great they are perfect reading for when you're starting a new job and bumbling around making mistakes as James Herriot feels your pain and writes of his experiences with such self effacing humour you've just got to love him Laughed my head off

  10. Meg Meg says:

    A wonderful memoir from James Herriot filled with entertaining stories of his work as a young vet in rural Yorkshire in the 1930s Charming and well written I read these books when I was younger and just bought three of them at a secondhand sale I looking forward to revisiting them
