Beautifully performed by Dan Stevens, 'War Horse' has taken the world by storm. First published back in 1982, the book was adapted to the stage and was performed at the National Theatre back in 2007. It's well-deserved success means that it has now gone into it's third year at the New London Theatre and will be later debuting on Broadway in New York City.

At the outbreak of World War I, Joey, young Albert's beloved horse, is sold to the cavalry and shipped to France. He's soon caught up in enemy fire, and fate takes him on an extraordinary odyssey, serving on both sides before finding himself alone in no man's land. But Albert cannot forget Joey and, still not old enough to enlist, he embarks on a treacherous mission to the trenches to find him and bring him home.

    " I have not seen the movie, so I have nothing to compare this to. The book is an easy to read children's book that never really grabbed me. The only real pull that I felt to the story line came in the last couple of pages of the book. Otherwise, it wasn't very compelling. "

    " I chose War Horse because i like action and it seemed very interesting to me when i saw it. The book is about a horse named Joey who was won in a auction into a farm where he met a young caring man named Albert. As time passed Alberts father needed money for the farm and sold Joey to the army to fight out and help a war that has broken out, but with is farm skills its hard for him to change into an army horse meeting some friends though helps him out. My favorite quote was when Albert said "Please take good care of him and treat him the best you can." that was the part where Albert had to part with Joey when he was getting transferred to the army. I found the point of view of the story to be very interesting because its on Joey, the horses point of view. That kind of style made you fell what Joey was going through and a little bit of what goes in a horses mind. I would recommend this book to all people who like action and suspense because the plot makes it very addicting. "
