    In 1914, a beautiful foal with a distinctive cross on his nose is sold to the Army and thrust into the midst of the war on the Western front. But his heart aches for Albert, the farmer's son he left behind. Will he ever see his true master again?

    What made the experience of listening to War Horse the most enjoyable?

    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.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked that the main character was so changed that neither he nor Albert recognized one another.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    Great use of language and vivid description. A little too sentimental and melodramatic.

    We are excited to present our members with a gift that is truly unique: an original essay, available exclusively here at Audible, written and voiced by best-selling author – and fellow listener – Ann Patchett. This Is the Story of a Happy Marriage is a very real love story, and one that is much more about the journey than the destination.

    "FUN!"

    What did you love best about This Is the Story of a Happy Marriage?

    Patchett did a super job of narrating.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Patchett has a wonderful grasp of irony, irreverence and inevitability as well as not taking herself too seriously in her resistence to marriage.


    Any additional comments?

    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.
