My 14-year old son and I listened to this audiobook on a road trip. We both loved it. We know a bit of World War I history, and that was what hooked us into the story. Neither of us are horse lovers per se, and I was wondering what I'd think of hearing a story told from a horse's point of view. But it really works! Joey the horse does duty as a farm horse, a cavalry horse, and a cart horse during the course of the whole book. Dan Stevens makes it all come alive with his various voices and accents. He keeps the dialogue lively and fun. He brings real warmth and depth to the human and horse characters. I learned a few more things about life during World War I too. I recommend it!
