War Horse

Before the Steven Spielberg film, before the National Theatre production, there was the classic children's novel...
In the deadly chaos of the First World War, one horse witnesses the reality of battle from both sides of the trenches. Bombarded by artillery, with bullets knocking riders from his back, Joey tells a powerful story of the truest friendships surviving in terrible times. One horse has the seen the best and the worst of humanity. The power of war and the beauty of peace. This is his story.
War Horse was adapted by Steven Spielberg as a major motion picture with Jeremy Irvine, Emily Watson, and Benedict Cumberbatch. The National Theatre production opened in 2007 and has enjoyed successful runs in the West End and on Broadway.
A great way of introducing young readers to the realities of WWI. Look out for Morpurgo's other war books including Friend or Foe, Waiting for Anya, King of the Cloud Forestsand An Eagle in the Snow.
War Horse is a story of universal suffering for a universal audience by a writer who 'has the happy knack of speaking to both child and adult readers' (The Guardian).

Black Beauty im I. Weltkrieg
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden am 11.09.2017
Bewertet: Einband: Taschenbuch

Ein Buch aus der Sicht des Pferdes gab es schonmal, das ist richtig, allerdings funktioniert auch War Horse als Geschichte ebenso gut wie schon Black Beauty. Aus der naiven, treuherzigen Sicht des Tieres bekommen viele Situationen einfach einen besonders emotionalen Wert. Trotz der geschichtlichen Thematik ein Buch für Zwischendurch.

Beindruckende Geschichte
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden aus Sargans am 20.02.2014
Bewertet: Einband: Taschenbuch

Das Buch ist sehr interessant, es ist sehr bewegend geschrieben. Die Geschichte handelt um eine tragische Story im zweiten Weltkrieg. Es ist sehr spannend und lohnt sich zum Lesen. Reclam-Bücher sind ideal für B1-C1 Englisch-Sprechende.
