Aimie, November 21, 2006 (view all comments by Aimie)
I am a sure animal lover, and this novel is no disappointment. Although this novel does look like it might appeal to young readers, it may not be the best choice for some. This book is a heart-renching tale told by the horse himself, Black Beauty. This book is extremely well written and actually makes you believe the story was told by the horse. It is a novel that keeps you reading while in complete empathy for the horse. I LOVE IT!!
