My heart has never gone pitter-patter for horses. No, I’ve never gotten swept up in that crazy love that so many young kids suffer from, horse fever. Something tells me that most of the people who pick up The Black Stallion do have horse fever. That’s okay, but it is something that must be considered when taking a look at all the rave reviews this book has received over the years.What is the opinion of a regular, horse-neutral person?I liked it. It was okay. Improbable, I think. (Would the owners of the two fastest horses in the country even consider adding a third horse, an unknown, to the race? I don’t think so.)If you love horses, you will love this book. If you simply like horses, you will most probably simply like this book. There you have it.
