If Only They Could Talk
by James Herriot (Michael Joseph, 1970)
audiobook read by Nicholas Ralph (Macmillan, 2020) [as part of “All Creatures Great and Small”]
Gentle memoirs of a young vet in 1930s Yorkshire. While Herriot’s story has been adapted into films and TV series, this first book retains its own distinct charm through humorous self-observation, setting, and the three principal characters, well voiced here by Ralph.
