    Seabiscuit was one of the most electrifying and popular attractions in sports history and the single biggest newsmaker in the world in 1938, receiving more coverage than FDR, Hitler, or Mussolini. But his success was a surprise to the racing establishment, which had written off the crooked-legged racehorse with the sad tail.

    K. Knutsson says: "Best book ever!"
    "Horse race the jockey fell, each healed. Repeat."

    Story
    What would have made Seabiscuit better?

    Seabiscuit would have been better as a short story. After the first part when reporting on the life of the jockey, it was repetitive and dull. I couldn't wait for it to be over. Additionally I felt sorry for Seabiscuit. The owner, trainer and jockey just wouldn't let the horse rest until it stopped winning


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I may listen to the second book of Hunger Games.


    What about George Newbern’s performance did you like?

    Performance was o.k. Not much emotion but then not much emotion wasn't needed.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Seabiscuit?

    I would have cut details of each race and each of many times Seabiscuit was cut from the race because of rain.


    Any additional comments?

    Unless you are especially fond of horseracing, I'd pass this one up.
