War Horse (War Horse, #1)War Horse by Michael Morpurgo

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

A very touching and sensitive story involving the friendship between a former British farmer and his horse. With the beginning of World War I, both friends have a separate life in France but the destiny bring them together with all the suffering which came by the end of this War.

 

Another two sensitive books with similar subject should be mentioned here: Black Beauty by Anna Sewell and Seabiscuit by Laura Hillenbrand. In the latest, the horse is not a character/narrator himself as opposite of the first two books mentioned here.

 

I haven’t watched the movie which was made based on this book, War Horse (2011), which was directed by Steven Spielberg and with Jeremy Irvine, Emily Watson, David Thewlis.
