Coal Black Horse
Truly a Southern Gentleman's prose, bring your dictionary and thesaurus. Wordy, erudite and graphic text describing the mayhem of the Civil War battlefields and man's inhumanity to man. Not a pleasant or comfortable read but a good storyline. Not for children less than 16 or the faint of heart, or those with sensitive stomachs.

What made the experience of listening to Coal Black Horse the most enjoyable?
The narrator's skill is wonderful; he captures the story in its' true form
What did you like best about this story?
The motif of the black horse was the best part
Which scene was your favorite?
The scene where the old guy whose face and hands come alive with crawly things-- OOOOOOOH! that was wonderfully described!
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
All the scenes that encompass the boy growing to manhood gripped me
Any additional comments?
This story is one of the most well written stories I have read in a long time--- well deserved any awards it received. I learned new words-- and how to use them. That is amazing as I am quite well-read across various genres.
I highly recommend this book and look forward to the continuation of the series!
