Say something about yourself!
John Keating as always, did a fabulous job of narration.
As an avid horse lover I am always looking for another great horse book. This book is written from the point of view of a horse during WWI and tells of the harsh realities faced by both people and the horses. It doesn't go into so much detail that it wouldn't be safe for children however.
I bought this book on a whim when it went on sale. It looked interesting, but not so interesting I started it right away. In fact I probably held on to it for 6 months before I ran out of another series and gave it a shot. That was a huge mistake, by far one of the best series I've listened to/read. Once I started this book I could not stop. I'm normally one who needs to stop and listen to a different book in the middle of a series because I get bored with the plot line, not so far with this one.
Katherine Kellgren is amazing, they could not have picked a better narrator. She sings the songs and her voice lends so much life to this book series. I think she really adds a whole extra dimension to the books.
To sum it up (TL;DR):
I took a bit of a break from this series because I was a tad afraid to pick it up based on the other reviews. Now that book 10 is out I decided to give it a try.
As others have said this is a transitional tale, Jacky has a few escapades abroad and then is back in London to clear her name. Once again surviving only due to her friends and relationships that she has built over the last few books.
Unlike the other reviewers, I enjoyed this book and thought it worth my time. The adventures back in London got a bit slow as she just seemed to enjoy playing around with her flirts, and nothing really ever happened. Then it ended on an odd note, so I look forward to starting book 10!
I am not reviewing the book. If you want to know about that, read the reviews on Amazon, or Goodreads. I am writing about Allan Corduner. This was like listening to a Broadway play; amazing. Allan Corduner brought to life this poignant story. I could never have felt such joy and pain having read this myself. Oh, my heart still breaks when Liesel says "Papa!"
