LearnOutLoud.com Review

Black Beauty is one of the best-selling books of all time. It is the first and only novel written by the English author Anna Sewell and it was published shortly before she passed away in 1878. The story is written in the form of an autobiographical memoir told by a horse named Black Beauty. As we follow Black Beauty throughout her life the story contains many allegorical lessons that teach us to treat both people and animals with kindness and respect. The novel is narrated by one of Librivox.org's best volunteer narrators Cori Samuel. It is available on MP3 download from Librivox.org.


Description

Black Beauty is Anna Sewell’s first and only novel. The story is told in the “first person” (or first horse) as an autobiographical memoir of a highbred horse named Black Beauty, from his carefree days as a foal on an English farm, to his difficult life pulling cabs in London, to his happy retirement in the country. Along the way, he meets with many hardships and recounts many tales of cruelty and kindness. Each short chapter recounts an incident in Black Beauty’s life containing a lesson or moral typically related to the kindness, sympathy, and understanding treatment of horses.

Beautifully read but...
Reviewer emackenz

The sound quality and the lovely English accent in this audio version of Black Beauty combine to do this classic title justice to its esteemed place in children's literature.
Naturally this book has been a favorite of girls through out the decades, but Black Beauty is a "boy horse", right? When I read the book over 50 years ago as a horse-crazy girl, I imagined the narration in a masculine voice. I was disappointed to hear the opening lines in the feminine gender. The voice of women should be reserved for Black Beauty's mother and for Merry Legs, the pony companion we all grew to love as youngsters.
If the audio version must be read by but one person, perhaps a fellow would be the better choice because a good story teller of the male gender can soften or raise his voice a bit for the opposite sex when their lines are spoken. Furthermore most of Black Beauty is filled with many characters of boys and men.
