Still good!

Still a terrific book after all these years - I first read it as an eight year old and it only gains with age: it's not really a kid's book although it is so often marketed as such. The narration is good, even if Gus' Swedish accent comes second only to the Muppets' Swedish chef :-) What a shame Thunderhead and Green Grass of Wyoming aren't also available as audiobooks as I'd have bought them both like a shot after listening to Flicka!

back to childhood

I read this book, and the sequels as a child. tho it's much more than a children's story really. this was a real
time travel journey, full of feelings, I couldn't have enjoyed it more so 5"stars all round.

A childhood favourite

Wonderful to listen to a classic tale of horse and boy. So much more to absorb as an adult. Worth every minute. As a child I didn't understand the family dynamics. A strange relationship between the parents. A father who is a hard disciplinarian and an older brother who is horrid. Still, I loved the horse and boy growing together.

An old classic a must for horse lovers

This has a,ways been promoted as a kids book.
The whole Flicka trilogy is a complex story of life with the horses a central part.
Mary o hara has a deep understanding of both.
Don’t let the kid tag put you off it’s a very strong story of the life of a dreamer and his love of a horse
