46. The Blue Roan Child

The title: The Blue Roan Child
The author: Jamieson Findlay
Publication: Doubleday, 2002
Got it from: Book Club

"The unforgettable story about the magical bond between a young girl and a wild mare." That's what the back cover says. If you like horses and similes, you'll probably love this book. As for myself, I'm hesitant to say anything harsh about it because I don't think it was all that badly written. But oh my sweet nectarines, was it ever boring. I had to force, force, force myself to read it until the end. If the interest-o-meter was like those hospital vital signs, I don't think mine would register far over "dead." I can't even even write this review without getting a little heavy-lidded, so...C.

If you enjoy fantasy novels, may I suggest one to try? "Outcasts Of Skagaray" is an action fantasy adventure which you can preview by reading the sample chapters on www.threeswans.com.au My blog is http://threeswans.blogspot.com if you feel like dropping by. It would be a joy if you read and enjoyed the book; but whatever happens, best wishes.
