The Horse Whisperer...


I just finished reading The Horse Whisperer last night. Now, to be fair, I have quite the history with this story. I vividly remember going to see the movie on my 13th birthday (it was rated PG-13, so it seemed so fitting!) & I absolutely loved it. Almost 11 year later I finally got around to reading the book :) The first 3/4 of the book are absolutely amazing! Then he completely and utterly ruins the story at the end. The movie ending is SO MUCH BETTER! While there is definitely a love story element to the movie, the other stories are more in the forefront. The book chooses to ignore the beautiful story built up in the first half of the book and just highlights the inappropriate love story instead of the other beautiful stories within. I was so disappointed. My advice - go see the movie. It's a really wonderful movie & ends the way I think the book should have.
