this was a really good memoir of "James Herriott", written by his son. Not a surprise that his son describes him as a sensitive, nice man, just as we would expect. I enjoyed this book from beginning to end .Nice pictures. ( )

“James Herriot” was the pseudonym of a veterinarian, James “Alf” Wight, who became an author after decades of veterinary practice in the countryside of England in the mid-20th century. This biography was written by his son. Instead of, like Herriot’s books, a focus on the animals, this book focuses on Alf and the people in his life – his family, lifelong friends, veterinary partners, and more – starting with his life in the country and his vet practice, then switching to writing books, which he also really seemed to enjoy.

I’ve only read a couple of Herriot’s books, but I’ve really enjoyed them. This biography is very good, as well, and of course, there have to be a few animal stories thrown in – not only of a few of the patients, but also of Alf’s own pets. It’s been a bit too long for me to remember the “characters” in Herriot’s books to compare them to the real life versions of those people, but I still quite liked this book. ( )

This biography of Yorkshire veterinarian and author James Herriot (whose real name was Alfred Wight) was written by his son. Obviously the reader has to keep in mind that the author is not objective about his subject. Jim Wight is also no where near the writer that his father was. His writing style is mediocre at best, and the chapters were not as organized as I would have liked them to be, but I got used to Wight’s writing after a few chapters. Even though the biography wasn’t particularly well-written, it was really nice to get to know more about James Herriot after enjoying his books. Wight explains that much of what his father wrote was based on fact, but the times, places, and characters were altered to keep readers from finding out who the real people involved were. I recommend this biography for those who love Herriot’s books. ( )

So wanted to read this book as I have loved all the books by James Herriot and the television adaptations. Such a wonderful life, full of loveable characters, and here we get the story of the real man from his son. ( )
