A forty-ton truck hurtles out of control on a snowy country road, a teenage girl on horseback in its path.  In a few terrible seconds the life of a family is shattered.  And a mother's quest begins -- to save her maimed daughter and a horse driven mad by pain.  It is an odyssey that will bring her to...The Horse WhispererHe is the stuff of legend.  His voice can calm wild horses and his touch heal broken spirits.  For secrets uttered softly into pricked and troubled ears, such men were once called Whisperers.  Now Tom Booker, the inheritor of this ancient gift, is to meet his greatest challenge.Annie Graves has traveled across a continent with her daughter, Grace, and their wounded horse, Pilgrim, to the Booker ranch in Montana.  Annie has risked everything -- her career, her marriage, her comfortable life--in her desperate belief that the Whisperer can help them.  The accident has turned Pilgrim savage.  He is now so demented and dangerous that everyone says he should be destroyed.  But Annie won't give up on him, for she feels his fate is inextricably entwined with that of her daughter, who has retreated into a heartrending, hostile silence.  Annie knows that if the horse dies, something in Grace will die too.In the weeks to come, under the massive sky of the Rocky Mountain Front, all their lives--including Tom Booker's--will be transformed forever in a way none could have foretold.  At once an epic love story and a gripping adventure, The Horse Whisperer weaves an extraordinary tale of healing and redemption--a magnificent emotional journey that explores our ancient bonds with earth and sky and hearts untamed.  It is a stirring elegy to the power of belief and self-discovery, to hopes lost and found again.

2.0 The Horse Whisperer by Nicholas Evans
I loved the movie but the book interestingly failed to impress me. It's focused too much on the love story - including stepping over the line to a physical relationship between Tom and Annie and a very cheesy ending where "fate" solves all problems. Sorry, but I rather have people solve their own ...

Najpierw obejrzałam film, a dopiero potem sięgnęłam po książkę. Oczywiście wersja do czytania jest lepsza i bardziej poruszająca. Polecam.

I think I was completely misinformed about this book. I expected it to be about horses, but I was mistaken. There's a very thin plot line that's actually about getting a horse back under control, but for the main part it's just a romance, badly written. I didn't like it, it felt fake, it felt at t...

"Chyba to właśnie jest wieczność. Po prostu jeden długi ciąg takich "teraz". I chyba też wszystko, co można zrobić, to spróbować żyć jednym teraz w danej chwili, nie zawracać sobie zbytnio głowy poprzednim teraz albo następnym "teraz". Po książkę sięgnęłam, ponieważ wiele osób mi ją polecało. Nie by...
