Horse under fire Review with images

AdvantagesA moving story, told unusually from the horse's point of view

DisadvantagesNone

"...my eye. == The book == The war horse of the title is Joey, a red bay with a distinctive white cross emblazoned on his forehead and four perfectly matched white socks – a pattern, you understand, not literally two pairs of garments on his feet. He is also, unusually perhaps for an animal, the narrator of this story, which is told entirely in the first person (well, first four-legged person, if you like). At the age of six months he is bought in a ..." Read review

A heart fit for war...

AdvantagesMaturely written, appeals to young and old, characters and emotions

DisadvantagesNone

"...of having to go to war without Albert who is too young, and then all of the adventures he has and characters he meets along the way. '''The horrors of war''' Morpurgo describes the horrors of war very cleverly, and I found that this book was the perfect opportunity to discuss the war with my son. The story focuses on the First World War, where cavalry was initially such a vital component, an element of warfare that soon was discarded as the massacre ..." Read review

Straight from the Horse's Mouth Review with images

AdvantagesChildren's story set in WW I told with sensitivity and honesty

DisadvantagesQuite emotionally draining at times

"...story is set in World War One told through the voice of a cavalry horse called Joey. We first meet Joey as a young frightened foal being auctioned at a market. He is bought by a drunken rather rough farmer but fortunately he is lovingly treated by Albert the farmer’s son and supported by the farm horse Zoey. Despite being a horse of breeding Joey is taught to work on the farm as no animal can be kept on the farm and not earn its keep as the family ..." Read review

War Horse - Michael Morpurgo

AdvantagesGreat story

DisadvantagesI would say too short, but it is a childrens' book

"...stage version of Michael Morpurgo’s War Horse a couple of years ago, I am now eagerly anticipating the film release. I hate watching films before I have read the book, so yesterday I finally sat down to start reading it. The book was first published in 1982 and was the runner up for the Whitbread Book Award in the same year. Like Black Beauty, the main character is a horse and the book is written from the point of view of Joey, a beautiful ..." Read review
