Book Review: Black Beauty by Anna Sewell (Audio Book; Family Read Aloud)

Black BeautyBlack Beauty by Anna Sewell

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Librivox Recording

For our drive home from Hilton Head we listened to the Librivox recording of Black Beauty.  I never read it as a child and didn't know what to expect.

We had differing opinions throughout the family.  The children enjoyed the story.  They liked hearing about the horse and his life.  I liked it, OK.  I enjoyed hearing about the horse and learning about the ways of life and his ups and downs.  Jason wasn't a fan.  He thought it was a bit too preachy and the analogous names too much.  I have to say that by the end I was agreeing with him despite my early enjoyment of the book.

Some of the readers were good.  There were a couple I was extremely happy when their chapters were finished.
