Black Beauty by Anna Sewell
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
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.
