Description du produit

Revue de presse

"The attraction of Herriot's ever popular memoirs of a country vet...is their alternating highs and lows, humour and pathos, and gripping anecdotes about delivering lambs, grumpy farmers, hypochondriac pet-owners, stroppy cows and blunt Yorkshire characters. And, of course, there's a powerful nostalgia element in these stories about our green and pleasant land in the day before the ravages of ribbon development."--Daily Mail

"On original release in the 1970s, James Herriot's insights into the life of a working vet were so popular and enchanting to readers that the area of the Yorkshire Dales in which he practised became known as 'James Herriot country'."
--Yorkshire Ridings magazine

Présentation de l'éditeur

The inspiration for the BBC series of the same name

Fresh out of Glasgow Veterinary College, to the young James Herriot 1930s Yorkshire seems to offers an idyllic pocket of rural life in a rapidly changing world. But from his erratic new colleagues, brothers Siegfried and Tristan Farnon, to incomprehensible farmers, herds of semi-feral cattle, a pig called Nugent and an overweight Pekingese called Tricki Woo, James find he is on a learning curve as steep as the hills around him. And when he meets Helen, the beautiful daughter of a local farmer, all the training and experience in the world can’t help him…

Since they were first published, James Herriot’s memoirs have sold millions of copies and entranced generations of animal lovers. Charming, funny and touching, All Creatures Great and Small is a heart-warming story of determination, love and companionship from one of Britain’s best-loved authors.

'I grew up reading James Herriot's books and I'm delighted that thirty years on, they are still every bit as charming, heartwarming and laugh-out-loud funny as they were then' Kate Humble

Ce livre est un grand classique parmi les livres d'humour anglais. Il raconte les aventures d'un jeune vétérinaire dans les Yorkshire Dales en Angleterre. James Herroit arrive, diplôme en poche, chez l'eccentrique Siegfried et Tristan pour soigner les animaux, et parfois les humains, dans la campagne. Fous rires assurés avec ses portraits géniaux des fermiers et d'autres habitants du coin, et des situations dingues dans lesquelles il se trouve par inadvertance, ignorance ou mal chance.

When this book was published in the States in 1972, it caused a sensation. Critics and publishers alike called it “a miracle” and, for once, they were right. Its success prompted its author to write two sequels and several other books, and in time everything Herriot-related created a kind of industry, including an excellent TV series. Recently, a stage adaptation premièred in 2010, and late last year a BBC drama called “Young James Herriot” started airing on TV, based in part on a biography written by his son. With all these derivative projects, it pays to remember that the original books are still exceptionally good and worth rediscovering.

Set in the late thirties onwards, these hilarious anecdotes (loosely based on real-life events) relate the adventures and misadventures of a city-bred, newly-qualified vet who settles down to his first paying job in the middle of the Yorkshire Dales, where life is tough, men are tougher, money is short, and animals are mostly viewed as commodities and crops. James Herriot gets properly stuck in and finds that being a good vet is only part of the job. Siegfried Farnon, his jovial but mercurially unpredictable boss, requires careful handling, the local farmers would test the patience of a saint, and when Siegfried's younger brother Tristan comes home to help with the practice, tensions between the brothers soon escalate until James is unwittingly caught in the middle of some pretty serious domestic warfare. As if his life weren't already full, romance beckons but the path of true love is, as always, strewn with difficulties. The narrative is delightful, a perfect mix of humour and moving realism as the young vet's initially diffident and hostile clients gradually begin to accept the outsider (and a Scot to boot) and his difficult and often uncomfortable work starts to bring its own rewards. A heart-warming book suitable for absolutely everyone.

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.
