War Horse by Michael Morpurgo

At times, War Horse was a bit difficult to read.  I wanted to reach into the story, grab a few of the characters, and whack them on the head for being cruel or ignorant.  However, all in all it is an excellent story.

The book takes a hard look at dealing with adversity, how friendships help with overcoming struggles, the tenacity required to fight for someone you love (even if your efforts seem wasted), and it explores the power of the human-animal bond.

This is definitely a book worth reading.

  1. I have read and watched this story a bunch of times and what I love about the movie is that it is close to the book you don’t need to watch the movie to read the book or read the book to watch the movie. I am in love with this story, and it is beautifully written. It is hard at times yes, and if you’re a crier like me you will want tissues handy when reading and watching this.
