Publisher's Summary

Animal lovers of all ages will cherish this memorable story.

Perhaps the most celebrated animal story of the 19th century, Black Beauty is the suspenseful and deeply moving account of a horse's experiences at the hands of many owners - some, sensitive riders who treated him gently; others, cruel drivers who thoughtlessly inflicted lasting damage.

This is supposed to be Unabridged but it is Abridged!

Very irritated and am going to work to get my credit returned. This is not the correct version of the book. It is abridged. My son needs this for English class and this is unsuitable!

Not impressed by the narrator.

This version sounds so odd, the narrator does not pause properly, as if there is no period after a sentence. Sounds robotic also. My 9 year old listen to it first and asked: Is this a machine reading it? Then my husband and I listened to it, No wonder the question! Want my money back.

Worst narration ever.

Do not buy this audiobook. So awful I couldn’t even make it through the first page. Stilted speech, sounds like a robot who can barely read.

The narrator was terrible

Great book, but the narrator was one of the worst I’ve heard. He was completely lifeless.

Condensed without being advertised as such

Narrator mispronounced simple equestrian terms: ie: “bridle”. Also sounded electronic and puppet-like. So unfortunate.
