So well read
Dan Stevens reads this abridged edition of War Horse by Michael Morpurgo wonderfully.
The story by Morpurgo is a materpiece, and so we wanted to go through a literary version before we watched the film.
Stevens slides easily through a range of characters voices which gives War Horse a much more interesting edge, and makes for a richer listening experience, than a straight read through would.
We're listening to this as part of our WWI history study. by Chelle
