Every Living Thing

I’m usually more into novels than short stories; more into fantasy, sci-fi, romance and mystery than humor, but this collection was great fun.  The stories were just the right length to read while a child was occupied with a meal or a short computer game, and they kept me laughing when laughs were hard to come by. I appreciated the well-written prose and the immersion in a simpler time as well.

I have a bit more time for reading these days, so I’m back to novels, but I might still seek out another few of James Herriot’s short story collections.
