A great feel good story that loses the detail by being abridged. The story skips detail and the listener is left wondering what they missed. Either buy the book or wait for the unabridged version.
I have loved Jilly Cooper's books about horses since Riders started it all. This one did not disappoint! It was so much fun to get involved with all of my old favorite characters again - Rupert, Billy and now their offspring! A fun book that delivered exactly what I expected!
It's great to see Jilly Cooper return once again to the Horse world, Rupert Campbell Black and all. Excentric characters, colourful backdrops of 'rural' England and animals with personalities greater than their human companions make for fantastic listening. Unfortunatly by the end of the book every, and I mean EVERY character be it human or animal gets on your nerves. Jilly Cooper allows a bit of hero to show in some of the characters but mostly she shows how completely horrible people can be to each other and the animals around them. Lastly the ending was more of a brick wall at 120 mph then the tapering off of her other books. There is no tying up of loose ends, the obnoxious getting their just desserts in an epilogue chapter. If you're in the mood to be annoyed at 99% of the characters through the book but enjoy the brilliance of her descriptive narrative then this is the book for you. An easy listen that sucks you in from the first paragraph and difficult to put down. Unfortunatly it is because of the ending and the absolute hatred I developed for every character, including the filly, that I rate Jilly Cooper's latest a 3.

This is the worst book I have ever listened to or read. It is shocking. If you wish to hear some tedious unbelievable nonsense go ahead.
