Biography & Memoir • 3 hrs. • Anthology • © 1997

Reader Christopher Timothy portrayed the semi-fictional Yorkshire veterinarian James Herriot in the wonderful BBC television series "All Creatures Great and Small" and has recorded versions of Herriot's work in such productions as the abridged Every Living Thing, Parts I and II (Audio Renaissance, 1993). He's just as good a reader as he is an actor. His cultured British voice twinkles with humor and shades into heartwarming emotion as appropriate. The stories of the animal doctor's vicissitudes with a variety of animals are kind and affecting; Timothy makes the characters real and well individuated. With his crystal articulation, he is marvelous, and so is the music from the television series. Longer editions of Herriot's works are available from Chivers Audio Books, also read by Christopher Timothy. D.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 98]
