Every Living Thing
Every Living Thing is the fifth and final book in the James Herriot "All Creatures Great And Small" series. It's wonderful. The books do follow a chronological order - but the format is the same: Each chapter is a veterinary case set in the Yorkshire countryside. Really, it's about the people, full of character and wit. Once you crack it open and read a chapter, you'll be hooked. The books are charming, humorous and delightful. I ordered all five of them and alternated them with my other books over several weeks. I was sad to get to the end of this one, though, knowing it was the last in the series. All five James Herriot books are equally good: All Creatures Great and Small (1972), All Things Bright and Beautiful (1974), All Things Wise and Wonderful (1977), The Lord God Made Them All (1981), Every Living Thing (1992).

Low quality edition of the book
I was literary saying shaken to realize how many low quality books of this author are on the internet market. James Herriot without any doubts is a good writer and wrote an excellent book, but this edition itself with both-soft and hard covers is of such quality that I don't want to keep it at home. The top cover made in poisoned green and somewhere in brown with the man, sheep and horse to make everyone understand how all the veterinarians look like and do not mix them with someone else. The hard cover is made from the green cardboard to support the idea but without title and name on it. All beautiful illustrations that as I know were created for this book had disappeared somewhere. Does it have to do with saving natural recourses? I don?t think so. Thousands of these books will never be sold because of their low quality. Probably the time for professionally printed books (happily not their authors) is over. To spend $50-100 or more for an early edition of James Herriot is the only chance to get something that you will enjoy and keep at your library.
