Don't think the movie is the same as the book!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I read this book as a child because I loved horses. I re-read it as an adult for the same reason, but I thought the movie was off. I was correct. As usual, the book is so very much better.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Of course Joey, the horse is my favorite character. Through his innocent, but not dumb eyes, he tells the stories of war, friendship, love & struggles. Yet I loved Albert, his first owner and Topthorn, his equine buddy. The relationships and observations are adult & real. I don't know why I always thought this was a children's story.

What does John Keating bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The reader was excellent. He added, not detracted from a beautiful story.

Any additional comments?

I'm not a real history fan, but I like historical fiction. This book is about the horrors of WWI. Graphic enough to be compelling, but not overly so. And it has a happy ending - the best part! I encourage you to listen to this book with your horse loving child or grandchild - or by yourself.

Wonderful story of a horse used during WWI

Great story told by the horse of his adventures during WWI first with the British army then the German army and again by the British. Heartwarming story of the love between a young boy and the horse he grew up with.
