    A marvel! Every horse movie that ever was is based on this novel. It’s the greatest horse novel ever written. I hope I write the standard-bearer for a whole genre someday.

    This book will surely make the reader aware of the hardships that horses have to go through in their lives.

    Black Beauty has had 9 masters over her lifetime, but only 5 of them treated her well: Her birth master, “Master” Squire Gordon of Birtwick Park Mr. York Mr. Barry (whose groom was Filcher) Jerry Barker, the nice cab driver Jakes, driver for the corn dealer Mr. Skinner, mean cab driver Mr. Farmer Thoroughgood Miss Ellen A few words about the masters: Squire Gordon was very good to Beauty, and she loved the three happy years she spent there. But the mistress got sick and had to move to warm places. Jerry Bar Black Beauty has had 9 masters over her lifetime, but only 5 of them treated her well: Her birth master, “Master” Squire Gordon of Birtwick Park Mr. York Mr. Barry (whose groom was Filcher) Jerry Barker, the nice cab driver Jakes, driver for the corn dealer Mr. Skinner, mean cab driver Mr. Farmer Thoroughgood Miss Ellen A few words about the masters: Squire Gordon was very good to Beauty, and she loved the three happy years she spent there. But the mistress got sick and had to move to warm places. Jerry Barker, a cab driver whose real name was Jeremiah, was great to Beauty. He had a nice daughter and son and his wife was named Polly. But he got dangerously ill, and the family moved to the country. Do not you think it is odd that both of these exceptionally nice masters had to move because of health-related family matters? The only mean horse that Black Beauty ever met was Ginger, but they grew up to be best friends. Ginger had suffered a harder life than Beauty, so it was only natural for her to be a little mean-tempered sometimes. One day, when Beauty was still Jerry Barker’s cab horse, a pitiful sight of a horse pulled up a cab, and Beauty saw it was his old friend Ginger with the same chestnut color, although the once shiny and glossy coat was now beaten up and missing in places. She looked half-dead, so Beauty wanted to believe that this horse was not Ginger, but it was. Later, they saw a dead horse being towed to the burial place on a cart, and Beauty saw the chestnut color and hoped it was Ginger, to end her long suffering. Merrylegs was a fat gray pony, but it’s not clear whether he was a boy or a girl. I think Merrylegs is male, but there is no conclusive evidence or proof. What do you think? Merrylegs was often thought of as a machine by the little boys, and they mistreated him cruelly, by hitting him with sticks to make him keep going. Speaking of little boys mistreating horses, there are boys who are awfully mean in this book to all the horses, not just to Merrylegs: Case 1: Black Beauty and her mother Duchess lived with their first master. But there was a boy who liked to steal blackberries from Mr. Master and throw stones at the horses, which really hurt the horses. Case 2: Filcher was employed as the groom when Beauty was under the care of Mr. Barry, her fourth owner. Filcher brought a child everyday with him to work, and the child stole Beauty’s oats, making her very thin. The child and Filcher both went to jail after their plot was discovered. I think, if anything, the illustrations are beautiful, even if the book is sad and filled with hatred, yet also with kindness. I don't know, but who do you think the girl on the cover is?

For the first four years of his life, Beauty is well cared for. His mother gives him sound advice and his owner is gentle. Beauty is then trained to pull cabs in the city. The work is hard and very dirty, which he is not at all accustomed to. Throughout the novel, Beauty's name changes with his different owners.Every owner has been mean to him and abused him except his first owner. When this man buys him he hates the owner but meets a beautiful chestnut mare named ginger. He falls in love with her, then his owner sells him. towards the middle of the book black beauty is pulling a carriage while it raining and he comes to a bridge and it breaks. The river is very fast and suddenly beauty stops and saves his master. Later, beauty is pulling a cart through town and he sees a cart go beside him and sees ginger in the back with her tongue out and dripping blood. in the end beauty is reunited with squire Gordon and the children. Although, it has a cheesy ending it is one of my favorite books ever. It is a truly inspiring book about pain, cruelty, beauty, and happiness. In conclusion, I definatley recommend this book its truly inspiring.

    I have always loved this book growing up. I hadn't read it since I was in middle school, and it is a story that I could read over and over again. It's beautifully written and pulls at your heart. I recommend it for anyone, adults and children.

    The book is about a colt a black one and follows his life of good masters and bad ones. I liked this book because I like horses and I like reading. I would recommend this book to Ambar because she likes reading this kind of book.

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.

Many people see animals as fashion , cuts off dog's ears and pony tail's of horse don't even realising animal's pain. But many people are also good and feel animals are their friends . In short ; It really worth reading for the book lovers.

    the most favorite title in my childhood years. up until i found anne rice at the age of 8, i would re-read this title countless times and visualize the chapters in my head like a virtual reality movie. i dare say this book has contributed towards my love for horses and my rebellious trait at a young age, for which i simply listened to my heart and not the adults around me.

    I give this particular adaptation 3.5 stars. I have not read the original, full- version of Black Beauty, but I would like to. I was intrigued by and enjoyed hearing the story from the horse’s perspective. It really made me think about animals and how we, as humans, treat or mistreat them. But this adaptation was lacking in its ability to capture me fully. My daughter and I found it somewhat boring and repetitive in parts.

    It was very interesting but very sad because many of the homes that Black Beauty is placed in were not very nice homes for a horse, it is also sad because his friend Ginger die's in the end very very sad book.

    I love that this book, told from a horse’s perspective, tells so much about people. It describes kind and gentle people and contrasts to people who are mean spirited and thoughtless. You can see how you need both love and education to provide the best care for these magnificent creatures.

    I'm pretty sure this is the only full-sized book I ever sat down read from cover-to-cover then immediately turned back to the first page and read the whole thing over again.

    4 year-old's review: I did not really like it, I will never read it again. There were a lot of bad boys and a mean lady.
