My Review:20151216_142631-1.jpg

It is one of those books that was super hyped about and I was reluctant to read it. But then I simply gave in. I expected this book to draw me in immediately. It didn’t. It took some time for me to get invested into the story. And I was totally expecting for a cheesy, done to death ending. But ooh boy ! Was I wrong.  Continue reading “Me Before You by Jojo Moyes (Book Review)”

Black Beauty – Anna Sewell (Book Review)

20151021_144221Goodreads Review:

A horse is a horse of course unless of course the horse is Black Beauty. Animal-loving children have been devoted to Black Beauty throughout this century, and no doubt will continue through the next.
Although Anna Sewell’s classic paints a clear picture of turn-of-the-century London, its message is universal and timeless: animals will serve humans well if they are treated with consideration and kindness.
Black Beauty tells the story of the horse’s own long and varied life, from a well-born colt in a pleasant meadow to an elegant carriage horse for a gentleman to a painfully overworked cab horse.

Goodreads Rating: 3.9

Author: Anna Sewell

My Rating:5/5

My Review:

Black Beauty is one of my favourite childhood books. So when I saw the leather copy of it in Jarir, I had to buy it. I love horses and I am still keeping my fingers crossed to have one of my own someday.

Anyway, this was the first time that I was rereading this classic. Hence I was nervous as to whether I will find it as amazing as the 8 year old me did. I loved it even more.

Black Beauty is an autobiography. The story is simple, gripping and fascinating at the same time. You would think that a well cared for animal would have life pretty easy. They don’t. That’s exactly what this books portrays.

Normally, I find classics really hard to read because of all the detail that is in them. But this is not like that at all. It was a very easy read.

I loved how even as a horse, he was so proud of being a high class, well breed horse whose family was just as good. Time and again, he is forced to show his temper but he never does. Even in the worst of times, he is positive and hopeful.

You will take away something from this horse that you probably won’t get from anyone else.
