Michael Morpurgo

Average rating

5 out 5

In the deadly chaos of the First World War, one horse witnesses the reality of battle from both sides of the trenches. Bombarded by artillery, with bullets knocking riders from his back, Joey tells a powerful story of the truest friendships surviving in terrible times. One horse has the seen the best and the worst of humanity. The power of war and the beauty of peace. This is his story. War Horse was adapted by Steven Spielberg as a major motion picture with Jeremy Irvine, Emily Watson, and Benedict Cumberbatch. The National Theatre production opened in 2007 and became one of the most successful theatrical productions in recent history. War Horse is a story of universal suffering for a universal audience by a writer who `has the happy knack of speaking to both child and adult readers' (The Guardian).

I like all the books written by Michael Morpurgo. This book was amazing and also a sad story. we read a lot of story about war but this story is told by a horse that describes painful moments from the horse's point of view. It is very sad when you find every body, human and animals, suffered from war. They fought together without having any problem with each other, and therefor it is sad.

You should read the book War Horse if you like mysterious stories with adventures. It may be a long book, but there are pictures to look at in it, and if you are interested in books like that, then you wont even know when you have finished it.
