I wanted to read the book prior to see ing the movie and this was a quick way for me to do that as I was going on a trip.
I liked that the main character was so changed that neither he nor Albert recognized one another.
I'm not sure I appreciated the narrator. He did not give the horse any maturity as the story progresses. Joey sounds immature from start to finish.
Great use of language and vivid description. A little too sentimental and melodramatic.
Patchett did a super job of narrating.
Patchett has a wonderful grasp of irony, irreverence and inevitability as well as not taking herself too seriously in her resistence to marriage.
Great short listen for a trip in the car. You may not want to stop listening if you reach your destination prior to finishing it.
