    Story
    "Dark and light"

    Black Beauty the book is NOT the story of the movie! It is far more textured, fluid and realistic rather than romantic. And the original Anna Sewell, of course. There are some grim dark times, and also warm light that comes through in the interactions and Black Beauty's views. The insights expressed from the horse's world view made me smile, and the perspectives on the human world touched me and made me laugh. Read with warmth and imagination, a gift of an audible book.

    "A most moving read!"

    Since hearing this audio prgramme at school, I have been strongly moved by it, and have enjoyed it from beginning to end. This book (and having had personal contact with horses) has taught me to have an abiding love for horses, and to understand something of their moods, preferences and feelings, and to get to know and feel close to them. I strongly recommend this book to anyone with feeling for animals, as I have: I love them very much and would do anything for them They are, in my opinion, as intelligent as people. Just beause they cannot talk does not mean that they do not have feelings or a brain.
