    "Captivating read for all ages"

    I am 50yrs old & first saw the stage play in London recently which is brilliant & inspired me to listen to the book. I love the combination of clever & engaging narrative, lovely characters & a wonderful story based on the realities of the first world war. What a wonderful history lesson without the lecture. I loved it from start to finish.

    "Marvellous story - very well read"

    Since this book is now a play and is being made into a film I thought I'd find out what all the fuss was about and download the audiobook. The story is about a horse called Joey and his experiences during World War 1. The book is touching and moved me to tears which was a bit inconvenient as I listen to audiobooks as I walk my dog! I'd thoroughly recommend this book to anyone who loves animals or just enjoys a great story well told. Can't wait to see how well it translates to the big screen (probably no where near as good as the book).

    "Beautiful Imagery Emotionally lifting and draining"

    This is one of the most beautiful books I have ever had the pleasure of reading through listening. It is my first and only book so far by Mr Morpurgo. I thought the narrative by John Keating was ideally suited to the book and it enhanced my pleasure of it. The use of language was such that I felt part of the story from the beginning and felt every joy and hardship along the way It is such a wonderful story so beautifully told. I will listen to it again I know and would recommend it highly.

    "Over-sentimental but beautifully written"

    It is not easy to write a story from the point of view of a horse. I write fiction and have written a story from a horse's viewpoint so please trust me on this, However, Morpurgo pulls it off with a story that is bittersweet but lovingly crafted. The target audience seems to be the teenager but I found a great deal to like in the story and the performance was first rate. If you don't mind a touch of the mawkish, this is a very fine read.
