Black Beauty review õ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ñ [Read] ➲ Black Beauty By Deidre S. Laiken – A horse's life can be filled with love and tenderness It can also be filled with meanness and cruelty Black Beauty learns both sides of life in this classic tale by Anna Sewel Told from the horse's po A horsTher Duchess to harsh years as a cab horse in the city and finally to a peaceful old age Black Beauty's life shows that horses have feelings too and sometimes they even know things people don. Picked this up out of the unit box at the camp I volunteer at The girls in the cabin were going into 4 6th grade and I read it aloud over three nights I enjoyed the fact that the book is narrated by Beauty; I only knew of a few other classics like that It really lacked human details though and I found myself wanting to rewrite chapters from the human perspective as a fun writing exercise Why was the master’s wife sick for example A warning though this book is pretty real about the way horses were treated back then and I’m sure in some places now It doesn’t not leave humans with a favorable view of humankind but only that there are kind exceptions to the rule The parts surrounding Ginger who appears several times across the book are especially dark with Ginger voicing aloud to Beauty that she wishes someone would shoot her and put her out of her misery Beauty even feels this way a little when he gets hurt In another chapter Beauty sees Ginger looking especially bad and being led away and then late Beauty thinks he sees Ginger dead in a cart that rolls by Not good bedtime fare but definitely realistic and I enjoyed it in general
