Première phrase
As I crawled into bed and put my arm around Helen it occurred to me, not for the first time, that there are few pleasures in this world to compare with snuggling up to a nice woman when you are half frozen. Lire la première page

5.0 étoiles sur 5 As good as the first one 28 juin 2012
The sequel to the hugely successful 'All Creatures Great and Small' does not disappoint. James Alfred Wight (writing under the pen name of James Herriot) gives us another funny, loving, entertaining, enlightening, delightful look into the life of a country vet. This time the narrative is less direct and instead we get a series of short stories (not always in strict chronological order) still vibrant with the (sometimes infuriating) personalities of both men and beasts, and alive with Herriot's deep love of the Dales and the challenging job he has embraced. One of my all-time favourite literary characters features in several of the anecdotes: the smooth, classy, unflappable Grenville Bennett, with his immaculate surgery, and his elegant, gorgeous wife whom James is destined to always meet while in the reduced state of a gibbering idiot. The spectre of WW2 hangs over the land and the book ends with one last successful intervention on a dog before James is called to arms.

If you enjoyed the first book, you will most likely love this sequel. There is a little more factual detail on the veterinary side of things but the same infectious humour prevails and the funny bits are still hilarious even when we know what's coming. A classic, suitable for everyone, and which has stood the test of time.

Most enjoyable reading and quite a lot of funny experiences. It shows how much progress has been made in the last 60 odd years and how difficult animal husbandry was out in the country.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An absolute delight! 9 août 2005
Par Terrie S. - Publié sur
I read all of the 4 Herriot books when I was in high school, but I find I'm getting so much more out of them as an adult. Mr. Herriot is a delightful companion to take along on an overseas flight, but you should be prepared to explain to your seatmates why you are laughing so hard that tears are streaming down your face!

Only once a century (or less) someone one like Herriot comes and makes you feel like you are truly there. I wish I could of meet him. He has made me want to be a veterinary doctor. Once again, JUST AWESOME!!!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Changed My Life. 5 mars 2001
Par Christopher B. Jonnes - Publié sur
All Things Bright and Beautiful is a fantastic book that had a curious effect on the direction of my life. This sequel to Herriot's best-selling "All Creatures Great and Small" continues the true, autobiographical adventures of the author as an English countryside veterinarian. I had just read his first book and dove right into this second one, absolutely convinced as a teenager that veterinary medicine was my destiny. But by the end of this second book, Herriot helped me realize that while I loved animals, I wouldn't be happy as a vet. The odd hours, inevitable disappointments, and requirement to frequently and literally go elbow deep into places I'd rather not, caused the realization that petting a warm and fuzzy pet and fixing a sick and slimy farm animal are two entirely different propositions. One measure of a book's merit is its power to change lives. This one has such power, for which I'm eternally grateful. -- Christopher Bonn Jonnes, author of Wake Up Dead and owner of 3 cats, 2 dogs, and 2 horses.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 James Herriot - an Amusing Storyteller 21 février 2004
Par Nanna - Publié sur
James Herriot Describing Himself in All Things Bright and Beautiful
In the novel All Things Bright and Beautiful, the author James Herriot is using his experiences as a veterinarian in Scotland to make an indirect characterization of himself. Reading the book, we get the picture of James Herriot as being a person who simply loves life because of the small things that happen in it whether they happen when he visits the farms in the country, goes and gets drunk in a pub, or has to get up in the middle of the night because of his job. Due to his amusing and joyful way of describing what he sees and does, we get encouraged to love life as much as James Herriot loves it himself. The way he indirectly describes himself makes the novel a joy to read.
We are not supposed to learn the lessons of life when reading this novel; we are supposed to enjoy James Herriot as a fantastic storyteller and get inspired to enjoy the small though extraordinary things in life that happen every day. The indirect characterization of James Herriot is what makes us realize that. We get inspired by his personality and his actions. James Herriot has put his personality onto every page of the book, and it is his personality that shapes the novel and makes it as good and amusing as it is. James Herriot has not written this novel because he had to; he has written it because he wanted to, and his love of writing about a topic as banal as his own life makes this novel a positively different and extraordinary piece of literature.
