At the outbreak of World War I, Joey, young Albert's beloved horse, is sold to the cavalry and shipped to France. He's soon caught up in enemy fire, and fate takes him on an extraordinary odyssey, serving on both sides before finding himself alone in no man's land. But Albert cannot forget Joey and, still not old enough to enlist, he embarks on a treacherous mission to the trenches to find him and bring him home.
Stevens brings adult sensibility to child's tale

A book that holds you to the end
Would you consider the audio edition of War Horse to be better than the print version?
It has been the first audio book that I have had. It was very easy to listen to. It still allows you to have your own imaginal input into it. The accents where done very well. It would have been harder for me in my time restraints to read it. I would definately recommend it.
What was one of the most memorable moments of War Horse?
There where a few. When he gets taken away and the heartache that Albert feels. When the two soldiers meet to save him from the fence. When he is reunited with Albert. When he has to watch his friend die and carn't leave him. When he is taken away from his mother.
Have you listened to any of Dan Stevens’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes but I did it over a week.
Any additional comments?
Loved it, thank you very much. It is a great thing that people with busy schedules, long driving times or being able to lie in bed and listen so that you don't interupt your partner.
