James Herriot is the best. This is a fabulous collection of all of his stories about being a country vet. I could listen to it over and over again. He is such a wonderful writer...it's hard to stop listening. Some of his stories just left my sides aching with laughter. Perfect for the car, before going to sleep, or for the visually impaired. I gave it to my 89 year old mother who can't see, and it keeps her entertained--as she said, she doesn't mind listening to it repeatedly. It's always fresh, beautifully written and SO funny.
