Where does The Horseman rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I think this is somewhere in the middle. It was a very good performance. Perhaps not the most literary of books, but an entertaining listen without being too dumbed down or simple.
What did you like best about this story?
I loved the setting, the characters, the horses. It was really and intriguing story of happenstance that was believable yet whimsical at the same time.
Have you listened to any of Wendy Bos’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Who was the most memorable character of The Horseman and why?
Craig and Peta were both excellent characters. They each struggled with their own demons, which brought them closer together.
Any additional comments?
I really enjoyed this book!

I don't review many books, usually they have enough said about them that I feel my praise might be over kill, but this book was different. This is a terrific book, clean and fresh, like the Australian highlands. Intriguing and fascinating, strong characters.Reminds me of Elyne Mitchell's works, but for adults. Would love to see more of Ms. Nash's work on Audible.The narrator, well you just can't narrate about Austrailia without being Australian, I think. She has the right cadence in her voice does Ms. Bos, a music that Australians have when they speak about their country.
The story was engaging right from the beginning. Plenty of suspense and the answers to the listener's questions gradually unfolded as the book progressed.
The narrator has a warm and smooth voice but I found it to be like a verbal form of elevator music. I would have like more expressive narration to better reflect the excitement and tension in some parts of the book.
Overall, very enjoyable and would recommend.
Surprised it hasn't been rated more often. It's a solid story, well written and well narrated. A nice Australian version of drama, romance and horses in the High Country with a Medical twist. Very easy listen.
