I resisted reading this for years. Years. I wrote it off as romance pap; nothing I'd be interested in.

Yet something made me pick it up, and I was amazed to find it is one of the best-written books I've ever encountered. Even now, all I need to do is think back and I can conjure up the mental images the book produced in me. And I've read probably two hundred books since then.

I say all this with one caveat: I never saw the movie. I strongly suspect I don't want to.

By now, everyone has heard of this book. If you haven't read it, you should. If you are familiar with the "real" horse whisperer, then parts of this will not ring true, however, it is a great story that will definitely hold your interest. I think the book is much better than the movie. It is an original concept, a very moving story with a gripping, unexpected ending. I think this will become a classic horse story, a must read.

One of my all time favs. I read it long ago and saw the movie years later. I must say the movie was okay, but the book was magical. Extremely good reading and very thought provoking.
