The Horse Whisperer
- A Novel
- By: Nicholas Evans
- Narrated by: Frank Muller
- Length: 13 hrs
A 40-ton truck hurtles out of control on a snowy country road, a teenage girl on horseback in its path. In a few terrible seconds the life of a family is shattered. And a mother's quest begins - to save her maimed daughter and a horse driven mad by pain. It is an odyssey that will bring her to...The Horse Whisperer. He is the stuff of legend. His voice can calm wild horses and his touch can heal broken spirits. For secrets uttered softly into pricked and troubled ears, such men were once called Whisperers. Now Tom Booker, the inheritor of this gift, is to meet his greatest challenge.
So Sweet, so innocent, so destroyed by the movie

I put off purchasing this book because of the movie - I shouldn't have, it was excellent. The narrator was a perfect choice for this book - (I also enjoyed his reading of The Green Mile). The book covered the gambit of emotions and was well written, the descriptions made you feel like you were there, and, if you love horses and/or love stories, you will really appreciate this book.

In the latest from Nelson DeMille (author of The Lion's Game), Paul Brenner is called out of CID retirement to investigate the murder 30 years ago of an army lieutenant in Vietnam. Brenner's trip up country, with a beautiful American expatriate for company, will lead him to uncover an explosive, long-buried secret.

I found this to be one of the best books of his that I read/listened to. Exciting and kept you wondering how it would turn out and right up to the end, you still weren't sure!
