    I wasn t really looking forward to this one because I m not a big fan of horse stories, but it was surprisingly enjoyable It focuses on things like family, abandonment, and finding your voice and the horses are just kind of a side bar At first our two main characters Nelly and Angel are kind of unlikable, but as their stories come to light I found myself enjoying the story and anticipating the ending.

    Theme of this book is friendship because Nellie becomes friends with a girl named Angel who isn t really liked by other people The book shows that you should always give people a chance no mateer what their reputation is.

    Halfway through reading this short children s book, I lost it among the stacks and stacks of books in my apartment for about four weeks and wasn t really in any hurry to find and finish it I think that says a lot about the kind of book it is I enjoyed it, certainly, and I think the target audience will too But in the end, the main character Nell failed to captivate me I finished the book mostly to find out the resolution of her relationship with Angel, and to tie up the music box storyline, whic [...]

  6. Betsy

    This is really a bit of magical realism in the guise of realistic fiction A book about a young girl starting to find herself and her growing friendship with another lonely girl than it is about horses It didn t grab me, and I m trying to figure out why Sometimes the writing felt slow, the pacing off a touch I also got annoyed with the vernacular bad grammar Not a bad book, just not awesome.

  7. Suzanne

    Me and my daughter read this It s a tender story about an unlikely friendship between two young girls, this book demonstrates how love and trust between friends and families can help overcome difficulties in a most unlikely way

    When Nell was sent to stay with distant family, she packed a suitcase full of secrets When she got there, she met a girl called Angel Both girls had secrets, everyone had secrets But Angel was dangerous, Rita said Could Nell trust her Things got stolen, even goats and some blankets Days have gone by and both girls got closer and closer The challenge Nell had to take is to find who stole all those things from the neighbours What I like about this book is that this book is about friendship and tru [...]

  10. Bonnie

    Eh Yawn Not sure what else to say I never felt like I knew any of these characters and the story rambled and didn t really make a lot of sense.

  11. Diane

    That s what angels do they bring things back to life Nell and her mom are on their own When Nell s Dad left for Las Vegas, her mother emptied the house of all reminders of him That s why Nell is so surprised to find her father s model carousel in the attic Did he intend to leave it for her What would happen if Nell s mother found out she had it Nell knows she must keep it a secret and when she goes to stay with her Aunt Liv and two cousins, Gemma and Alfie, she hides the suitcase in the trunk of [...]

    A Hundred Horses or published in the UK as A Horse for Angel is a unique book with unpredictability The story begins with Nell and her mom having a rocky relationship due to the haunted memory of Nell s father abandoning them seven years earlier Nell s mom decides to send Nell to her aunt s and cousins farm While there, Nell meets Rita, the kind neighbor who is forced to sell her farm animals and Angel, the mysterious girl people say is a thief and trouble Nell also meets the beautiful horse Bel [...]

    Serendipity This books is the best example of this word As a book reviewer and school librarian, it has become all too easy for me to look at the cover of books and write them off immediately as juvenile crap Clues that books are not worth my time animals and pastel covers I didn t pick this book to read at my last review group meeting I always get excited to see what my colleagues choose for me when I miss a meeting Well, Missy Naseman Rivera, you did a great job I loved this story about two gi [...]

    This book had potential, but I was reading it from my 8 year old daughter s perspective, since she had just read it it was on a library list of recommendations for her age group Nell the narrator speaks like an enigmatic adult, alluding to certain feelings and connections without talking about them directly All I could think of was how many layers my daughter must have missed Also, the theme of abandonment is strong throughout this book, something that is unfamiliar to my child And Nell s mom an [...]

    So, in our family we have two horses and we treasure a good fairy tale I love books and seldom rate a story as 5 stars unless it is a story that I think I will remember for years.This is one of those stories it was outstanding Ideal for an 8 10 year old, this story has a lot of parallelism between the main character, Nell and an orphan girl, Angel Brief synopsis is that Nell s dad is long gone and Nell s mother needs two weeks away for job reasons Reluctantly, Nell visits her aunt on a farm some [...]

    A Hundred Horses is a simple, enjoyable story by Sarah Lean The main character, Nell, is unexpectedly sent to spent two weeks with her aunt and cousins that she has never met on their farm Nell is prepared to find the time unenjoyable, but is pleasantly surprised when she finds herself with new friends whether they are adults, children, family or animals Lean incorporates some life lessons through the storyline and her interesting characters I would recommend A Hundred Horses to any young reader [...]

  28. Rena Sherwood

    A promising beginning soon spirals out of control The narrator, supposedly 11 years old, talks like a middle aged Psych professor Also, the book s attempts to Americanize this English novel are laughable and distracting There are some crucial plot points that are, quite frankly, bloody ridiculous I admit that I m an adult that likes to read kids books every now and then for relaxation, but even as a kid I would have been disappointed with it.
