I have always loved black beauty ever since i was a little kid. The movie and book as a great classic and one that is still known everywhere today. Can read Black Beauty over and over again and still find it enjoyable

This book is a marvelous read. It's written in such a way that you can feel for the horses in everything they go through. I've had a great respect for them ever since reading it.

I remember reading Black Beauty a few years ago. It's such a wonderful classic! I think I almost cried at certain parts.
Just reading... :techie-studyingbrown: :techie-studyinggray:

I've tried reading this book a couple times but it just never really got my attention. The movie was alright though.

I love this book. I think it’s brilliant for children and adults alike. Fantastic story and a good reminder that we were put on this earth to look after the animals.

Reading the black beauty was too exquisite.. When i came across the abridged version, i couldn't wait to get the full version. I just kept reasoning as i was reading thinking of how I lived my life when i was very young.. My younger sister just took the book with her today.

I love Black Beauty with all of my heart and have read the novel many times over. It is one of the few books which captures a story literally from the mouth of a horse and I think everyone horse lover or not should read it.
