BLACK BEAUTY

by | Read by Martin Jarvis

Classics • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © (1877)

From country squire to cab horse and back to gentle ladies, Beauty's life is a happy tale to be enjoyed by families and young children. The abridgment cuts much of what some of us remember of the horses' cruel treatment. Martin Jarvis is a master, who draws the listener into the story from his first breath. He effortlessly brings to life the orchard at Bertwick or the London cab rank. The character voices are distinctive while easily understood. Remember, the story is narrated from Beauty's point of view. Without sounding contrived or trite the horse's account is sympathetically presented. Sharing Beauty's delight or diligence, listeners will enjoy this compassionate presentation. R.F.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN 96]
