All things bright and beautiful - James Herriot

Had read all of this books long back in college and totally loved them.

Along with Wodehouse he has been my all time favorite authors. Yesterday while scanning my book shelf looking for something light and easy to read to tide me over, I found the whole set of the Herriot series and picked one up after many years. Was reminded of a conversation with a friend who had been in a pickle once, and while discussing Wodehouse, we'd both agreed how the humour was just so precious.. the perfect antidote to life's blows.

Stuck between heart warming stories of the dogs and sheep and cows and horses, was the stoic philosophy of 'these things happen'.
