Black Beauty is about the life of a handsome black horse. Black Beauty’s life story is full of ups, downs, horrible grooms, gentle masters, and amazing friends. The story starts with his first home and ends with his last. In the adventure in between we see his hardships and his luck. We see an ancient world through the eyes of a gentle stallion. We see the viciousness of the world around Beauty, and all the good people can bring if they go against it. Beauty learns to be a loyal companion. Even when his masters mistreat him; Beauty somehow finds a someplace in his heart to forgive them.
Good Points
This book is very good. It’s not full of action, but it’s an adventure just the same. Black Beauty has it’s thrilling moments as well as boring moments. It’s the perfect book to just settle down on the couch with. Anna Sewell had created a beautiful, classical, novel. Black Beauty was wonderful and I couldn’t put it down. A definite must read.
