I loved the movie and the book. I've lent it to a friend of mine who knows nothing about horses and doesn't read a lot, but she devoured this book. I took her to see the movie and she loved it as well.
The only thing I found a bit distracting was all the horse switches for Seabiscuit. I know they couldn't have used only one horse to film the movie, but some of the horses looked nothing like the other one. Also, for some reason, they had horses nickering in every scene, no matter what they were doing-it's very unrealistic, but I've noticed that movies which have horses in them, the horses are always whinnying.
Has anyone read Man O'War by Walter Farley? I thought that was a good book, but it has been several years since I read it.

[> [> Erica...I LOVED Man O'War....and every other book by Walter Farley. I had devoured all the Black Stallion books by the time I was 14. Did you see "The Young Black Stallion" is coming to IMAX theaters at Christmas? It looks like it take place in the Middle East with a girl as the main character. 10 yr. old , horse-crazy niece and I already have a date. :) -- Lady Jane, 20:52:39 09/20/03 Sat
