    Michael Morpurgo's classic tale, capturing the power of the human spirit. First published back in 1982, 'War Horse' has taken the world by storm. The book was adapted to the stage and was performed at the National Theatre and on Broadway. This full and unabridged edition is beautifully performed here by the National Theatre's first Albert, OIivier-award-winner Luke Treadaway.

    Set on a farm in rural Devon, Farm Boy is a collection of Grandpa's reminiscences and stories, touchingly told to his grandson. Joey was the last working horse on the farm, and the apple of Grandpa's eye. In War Horse, Joey was sent away from the farm to be a warhorse in World War I. Grandpa had joined the cavalry in order to find, and fight, with Joey. Farm Boy brings us forward 50 years....

    Brilliant! Just to brilliant!

    I think this is a lot easier to understand that war horse but it's a sequel so you have to listen to war horse but 5 star from me!
