Description

Michael Morpurgo’s classic tale, capturing the power of the human spirit. 

First published back in 1982, War Horse has taken the world by storm. The book was adapted to the stage and was performed at the National Theatre and on Broadway. This full and unabridged edition is beautifully performed here by the National Theatre’s first Albert, OIivier-award-winner Luke Treadaway. 

At the outbreak of World War 1, Joey, young Albert's beloved horse, is sold to the cavalry and shipped to France. He's soon caught up in enemy fire, and fate takes him on an extraordinary odyssey, serving on both sides before finding himself alone in no man's land. But Albert cannot forget Joey and, still not old enough to enlist, he embarks on a treacherous mission to the trenches to find him and bring him home.

Great book for a middle schooler

Would you listen to War Horse again? Why?

Yes, I'd listen to War Horse again. Knowing everything that happened, I could listen to it from another perspective and catch details that I didn't the first time. It was a quick moving story and enjoyable, even though it was stressful at times.

What other book might you compare War Horse to and why?

Black Beauty, Black Stallion, Animal Farm, A Dog's Life
Written from the animals point of view

Which scene was your favorite?

My favorite was when Joey is reunited with Albert; an excellent example of dramatic irony

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

when Joey and Albert were reunited

Any additional comments?

Showed most of the soldiers unhappy that they were soldiers; did not glamorize war, a happy ending, true story, movie to compare/contrast later

Sad when story ended

Wonderful story beyond expectation. Narration is top class and very empathic. I want to listen to the story again immediately. Great production.
