Publisher's Summary

His name is Tom Booker. His voice can calm wild horses. His touch can heal broken spirits. And Annie Graves has traveled across a continent to the Booker ranch in Montana, desperate to heal her injured daughter, the girl's savage horse, and her own wounded heart. She comes for hope. She comes for her child. And beneath the wide Montana sky, she comes to him for what no one else can give her: a reason to believe...

So Sweet, so innocent, so destroyed by the movie

The book was actually riveting. The writing was smooth, tense and consistently high quality. the characters were real and full. I was so anxious to see the movie, but what a flop. So, if you loved the movie.... you'll go crazy with the real, undiluted, story of love and family and, by the way, horses. If you saw the movie, try hard to forget it and replace that memory with what you hear!

Excellent Read

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.

A Love story, plus healing hearts

What did you love best about The Horse Whisperer?

It's hard to say what I loved best. I guess it just swept me up. A mothers drive to heal the wounds of the family ( including her own). The ''horse whisperer'' tom is based on an actually man ( still alive ) today who does horse therapy so to speak. He does therapy for the horses as well as the riders. I suppose the notion and romantic situation caught me up. The story was touching, heart breaking and sweet. I guess it was simple well written cowboy love story with a twist.

Another Classic from Muller

The story was excellent, the performance nonpareil. This is one of the few books that compares favorably in term of story and performance to "The Prince of Tides" (also performed by Frank Muller)

Good book

Good book but I do not like the narrator. He sounds like he should be narrating something very severe and extremely intense all the way through.

The Horse Whisperer

Frank Muller's narration of this excellent story is beyond words.....the story flows where I become lost, picturing in my mind the characters as they share their story. Descriptions of Pilgrim and his recovery from dark places heighten the way for me, the listener, to be able to feel his suffering and his rise out of it. Thanks to the author for helping me learn the compassionate role of a horse whisperer.

I really liked it

I read the book years ago when I myself used many of those techniques with my own horses. Then the movie came out at the time I liked the book better. But now many years later and much older, I like the movie best. But either book or movie you won't be disappointed.

Touching entertaining novel

About modern and old fashion love in contrast with the morals and the pit falls of human desire and aloneness
