Every Living Thing Mar 26, 2011
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).
