Black Beauty by Anna Sewell

Black Beauty is a nearly all-black horse and is the title character and narrator of the story. Throughout the course of the novel, Beauty introduces the reader to many characters, including his mother, Duchess, and other horses named Ginger, Merrylegs, Sir Oliver and Captain.

 

The story that is told in Black Beauty is one that people can understand if they know horses, have a soft spot for animals and have a soft spot for animals. But, personally, I think that while a good read, that this book is a bit boring. Yes, it has interesting points but Black beauty is not what I consider my favorite story. It is a relief to read it after reading books heavy on action, drama, and other intense stories and it lets one relax to sleep or just relax. I recommend it but not if you are tired.
