I would recommend this listen. The narrator is excellent and the story is engaging. I knew nothing of horse racing but wanted to gain a bit of knowledge before my trip to Churchill Downs. It was well worth my time.
Laura Hildebrand has the rare gift to tell a good story while being vigilant in maintaining historic accuracy and literary grace.
The performance is excellent and the production is flawless.
This is a must listen and a must read.
Wonderful reader, wonderful story. Laura Hillenbrand is a treasurer. Detailed, moving, exciting, and full. Without much knowledge of horses in general, and racing specifically, I learned a lot, too. A must-listen!
A moving biography of a great race horse. I've been aware of SeaBiscuit since my days in grammar school, but not the interesting details about a classic athlete's capture of an entire nation. Enjoyable Audible listening selection.
A total surprise.
I thought I "should" read this book so I'd understand the references. To my surprise, I loved it. The story is great and the historical picture that is painted was really interesting.
I had heard of Seabiscuit but had not real knowledge of the accomplishments of the horse and the people who helped make him a legend
Learning about the life of racehorses, owners and jockeys.
no. It took a long time to listen to all of it. Very well written and performed
