Subject: Fantastic book and a fantastic review!
In reply to: Syl 's message, "Seabiscuit by Laura Hillenbrand" on 13:03:43 09/19/03 Fri

Loved Seabisquit! It was full of details but the story kept moving right along to a satisfying finish. You know you've stumbled onto a great writer when the characters stay with you long after the book is done. I also enjoyed the movie, but too many details had to be left out. I felt like turning around and asking everyone if they really got the significance of a certain scene. Kept my craziness to myself though! ;)

[> Possible spoiler - reposted.....>>> -- Judie for Lemora, 10:48:45 09/20/03 Sat

I don't know if this is really a spoiler or has anything to do with the actual STORY line itself, but I'll post inside just in case. :D


Great review! However, I disagree as to a happy ending. Red Pollard slid further into alcoholism and more racing injuries, when he should've given up jockeying, and Tom Smith's passing was completely unnoted in the news. Marcella Howard lived on until 1986. Thought it a shame she couldn't have helped them both in their old age. BTW, the ranch in Willits is being restored after years of neglect & several owners.
