Perfect reading of my favorite book

Black Beauty has been my favorite book since childhood. I know it through and through, and there are some passages that I know by heart. I have never liked the various TV and movie adaptations of the story, and was particularly annoyed by Beauty's voice in the 1999 movie version, in which he sounds like a gerbil. When I found this recording by Nathaniel Parker, an actor I have long respected, I knew I had found the right one. I was not disappointed. Parker gives this moving, thought-provoking classic all the right touches. He brings the story to life with the different accents for the human characters and the lively voices for the equine characters, who are of course the most important. He made me smile at the humorous moments and brought tears to my eyes at the sad moments. Most importantly to me, in portraying Black Beauty, he sounds like a noble, spirited, thoughtful horse. Not a gerbil, not a man, but a horse. I don't know how he managed that, but he did it. I can't recommend this recording highly enough to those who already love this book or to those who are coming to it for the first time. You are in for a treat.

a classic beautifully read

The classic tale of this famous fictional horse is beautifully read by one of the best readers around, the English actor Nathaniel Parker. As with all of his readings, he brings dramatic skill, sensitivity, and vocal dexterity into play once again. A treat for both child and adult, and a great gift for a special occasion (or even 'just because').

Wonderful reading of a classic

If you remember reading and re-reading this book as a child, then this audiobook is a new way to enjoy the story. The narrator is classic British - good characterizations and very clear speech. I listened to this audiobook almost continuously until the end!

Childhood favorite!

If you could sum up Black Beauty in three words, what would they be?

Horse survives Humans!

Would you recommend Black Beauty to your friends? Why or why not?

Yes, however I found myself bored a little and remembered how important pictures can be to a children's story. The story is good, but pictures improve it.

Have you listened to any of Nathaniel Parker’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

He is an excellent narrator and this is one of his best! Very much enjoyed his performance.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Beauty can do it!

Narrator inconsistent

Any additional comments?

I love the story, but I just didn't get on with this narrator. His voices slipped, and he had pauses in odd places.

Classic horse story holds true and relevant!

While I hadn't read this book in at least 30 years, it has held true. Reminding people to be kind and considerate to both animals and people. Giving a very different point of view, than one usually experiences.

Gripping yet soothing

This beautiful classic is beautifully read: the voice of the reader is pleasant. The story is exciting yet soothing. Listening to it was the perfect inducement to getting on with some awful chore like tidying or ironing. Whatever the job, it was done in a flash, my attention held by the clear and satisfying unfolding of the story. I also learned about the treatment of horses, something to discuss with my horse-mad granddaughter.

Lovable

What a sweet, lovable story. I fell in love with the horse and got a little frustrated about how badly the horses were being used. Definitely a book to read to my Daughter.

Black Beauty

I have loved this book since I was a small child. This audio version is beautifully done. The narrator is good and keeps the flow of the book well without being monotonous and his diction is fluid. I would recommend this version to anyone.

A Must Listen for Horse Lovers

Being a book written in 1877, you may think that a lot of the points here are dated and no longer applicable. This is my first ever read/listen to this book and I’m floored at how relevant it still is today, 144 years after publication.

Anna Sewall did a fantastic job of humanising these wonderful animals and expressing how our mistreatment hurts, harms and takes advantage of these very giving animals. Though times have changed, the main issues and themes within this book remain. There is wonderful insight into the issues of the time and the work horses were expected to perform, and Anna does a fantastic job in provoking emotion from the reader/listener.

It’s a must-have for those interested in horses and hopefully it can help garner compassion in the new generations of people in the equestrian industry.

Nathaniel Parker was an excellent narrator for this work and I thoroughly enjoyed his work in performing this great story.
