Not THE Horse Whisperer of Nicholas Evans's novel, but A horse whisperer, Monty Roberts has a personal history more engaging than many novels. He writes with the special clarity of someone who has no pretentions as a writer, but has a story he very much wants to tell and a deep understanding of his subject. This book is effective in audio much in the manner of good, non-theatrical storytelling--it's more like a conversation than a performance. Ed Sala's reading at first seems flat and deliberate. But it soon becomes apparent that he has achieved precisely the right tone for Robert's straightforward style. J.N. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 00]
