Say something about yourself!
This book is incredibly interesting. I had a hard time getting into the story at the beginning, but once past the first chapter I was hooked. I am a horse person, so I was able to follow all the details regarding the classical dressage, if you are not a dressage person or at least a horse person with vague knowledge of things such as the piaffe some of the jargon may make it hard to imagine what is going on.
However the book is very much a coming of age, with extremely well written charter development and evolution - but not just for the main character, it develops and evolves several characters in real life situations and hardships.
I adored this book and highly recommend to my fellow horse people.
Enjoyed this thoroughly. I'm a horsey person, and was pleased that the equestrian references had been well researched and written. And it's a great story. Although I did have the urge to slap the characters every now and then as they all kept so many secrets, but if there had been open and honest dialogue there would not have been any story to speak of.
I am retire, love to read
Este libro puede ser intersante, pero la vos de esta persona me lo esta destruyendo, odio su vos parece que tuviera saliva en su boca y que cuando la abre me va a mojar. Los acentos lo hacen dificil de escuchar
WOW!! This is my third book by JoJo and she is a truly gifted Author!! Some how once again she has touched my heart and spoke to me in story. I CANNOT wait to read more of her books!!
I almost gave up on this book several times. The characters are not likable and found myself frustrated with them often. Also not fond of the narrator. I will not seek out her other works as I often do after listening to a narrator for the first time. If not for the ending two stars are what I feel the book would merit.
I was expecting only an interesting historical romance and was shocked by the depth of subject matter in this book and the genuinely knowledgeable discussion of classical dressage. The horse isn't a major character in his own right as he might be in a marketed "horse story," he's more of a set piece or environmental element, but the horsemanship is accurate and there are some brilliant discussions about the relation between rider and horse that brought tears to my eyes as an lifelong horsewoman. The narration was excellent with great French accents and the writing moved me deeply. There are a couple places I felt the book could have been improved by the author better explaining why her characters are making seemingly stupid moves but those are at least clarified in the end and overall I felt the book was excellent. Well worth the download!
This book took me by surprise. JoJo Moyes write a beautiful story with accurate details and a phenomenal ending. This is probably the best book I have purchased in 2016. I recommend it to anyone who loves a good story about horses and he loves a good story.
The journey I traveled while reading this book was an absolute joy! I didn't want to stop reading, yet I dreaded the ride's ending. Now that it has, I know I will just listen to it again sometime and enjoy it all over again!
