    "Enjoyable easy listen"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I enjoyed the mood of the story. A very pleasent listen while driving.


    Would you recommend War Horse to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes,I think most of my horse friends would enjoy the story, young and old.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The reader was too gentle for the story, maybe it was just his accent I didn't care for. He was OK not great.

    Married mother of three teenagers, back to work after 15 years at home - when I read a lot. Now I am the assistant to the Mayor of Omaha and work at least 60 hours a week, and on top of what I have to do at home - no more books. This lets me listen to the classics, the latest, whatever I want. I can learn or escape. I have always love audio books, but now I NEED them.

    Story
    "WONDERFUL! Loved this even after the movie"
    If you could sum up War Horse in three words, what would they be?

    Sweet, unique, uplifting


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love that it is told from the perspecitve of the horse. The movie couldn't do that, but the book can.


    What about John Keating’s performance did you like?

    I loved the folksy nature of his telling. I felt I was in another place with his voice, and that was good.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I couldn't, I listen in the car to and from work, but I looked forward to driving somewhere - and that is a good thing with gas prices where they are.


    Any additional comments?

    It is different from the movie, but not in a bad way. I am glad I saw the movie first, this filled it in, made it richer, and gave me visuals to work with while listening. I only wish I could have gone with my parents to see it on Broadway too.
