Listening to this audio book, it is like I was really there. I could see and small the horses and hear the cheering of the crowds. I only wish she would feel well enough to tackle another. Read full review

This was a well written book, but I couldn't get into the book. I just wasn't interested enough in the horse racing. And this book is really about horse racing. It is does have descriptions about the people, but they weren't the main focus of the book. Read full review

Listening to this book was a treat - the narrator added suspense and excitement to an already exciting story. Hillenbrand is an excellent writer and makes this story of Seabiscuit, one of the star ... Read full review

I finally got around to reading this and I'm so glad that I did. Seabiscuit's story is well-known to racing fans, but mere racing statistics cannot explain this horse's popularity to Depression-era ... Read full review

This was one of the best books I have read in a really long time. I am not particularly a horse-racer or a historical novel lover. I mean, I've read a couple of historical fiction that I've loved ... Read full review

One of the best non-fiction reads..ever. Hildebrand does a marvolous job immersing the reader in the life and times od Seabiscuit and his jockey and owners. A must read!

Who wouldn't enjoy a story about a super horse that you can't help but root for.

47. Seabiscuit, by Laura Hillenbrand. 339 pages. This is nonfiction. It is definitely one of the better books I have ever read, and I am not a horse freak. Don’t own one, and they generally scare me when I ride one, don’t you know? So, here I am reading about this Preakness-winning horse, and I am totally absorbed into it. It was a New York Times best seller, and I would support that opinion here. It is also an awesome story because of the great way is discusses the lives of the jockeys who ride and love this outstanding piece of horse flesh.
*****Five Star rating!!
