Rating- *** 3.5 stars


My thoughts:

This made for a very interesting as well as humorous read. The story is told through the point of view of a Horse named Pie, this idea very unique and original for an Adult read.  It, to me, was entertaining, informative and cute all intertwined with instances being described as only a horse’s mind could conjur.

There were instances my heart melted, tugged, broke. I was on a rollercoaster of emotions from laughter, to “Aww’s” to feeling as if I could see each occurrence through the horses eyes as if I were the horse itself.

Kandy has a neat hand writing style where it flows easily, very well written and relatable. I found I enjoyed this book, despite my first initial reaction to being unsure if I would.
