    MOBI Enid Bagnold ì National Velvet PDF/EPUB ´ ì national download, velvet download, National Velvet ePUBA truly magical story that has been on my favourite books list since I was a childThrough the years my children and grandchildren have all enjoyed reading this book that makes you think that no matter how big the dream your dreams can come trueI also love the film that was made starring a very young Elizabeth Taylor and Mickey Rooney and I believe it was Elizabeth Taylor's first movieThis has to be one of the best classic stories around that never

    MOBI Enid Bagnold ì National Velvet PDF/EPUB ´ ì national download, velvet download, National Velvet ePUBA very uick review as I'm going away tomorrowNot an easy book to classify but I will go with young adult because of Velvet Brown's age She was fourteenI love the interaction of the Brown family and found them all very easy to relate to I loved seeing a young girl follow her dreams But I did find too much just too improbable and I found the book poorly structured it took till chapter 7 to get going and with distractions like view spoiler the other five horses hide spoiler

    MOBI Enid Bagnold ì National Velvet PDF/EPUB ´ ì national download, velvet download, National Velvet ePUBHow do you rate a book like this? It's marketed as a children's book but when I read it as a pre teen there's no way I got all the subtleties that the author works into her themes It was written in 1935 so of course it's aged While I was reading the book I was very aware that I was being given a slice of life for a way that people don't live any How many people even know what butchering is much less what it would be like to live in front of a kill yard? There's nowhere I know that would give kids candy bars on credit with the kids carefully tallying up what they owe for when they have the money The rural way of life in which most dogs aren't pets your pony is your means of transportation instead of your hobby and the village is a long walk

    MOBI Enid Bagnold ì National Velvet PDF/EPUB ´ ì national download, velvet download, National Velvet ePUBThough I've treasured this since I was 12 I'd completely forgotten to include it here until Flicka's lyrical narration on the Hallmark Channel sent me scrambling for book excerpts online thru red swollen eyes of course hey it's a horse flick which led to a lovely Velvet detour And what a lovely book it is yes yes the triumph of the human spirit and all that which by the way can never be overdon

    MOBI Enid Bagnold ì National Velvet PDF/EPUB ´ ì national download, velvet download, National Velvet ePUBThis may be one of the strangest books ever written I first read it when I was eleven or so and didn't understand it uite frankly I still don't Is it a slice of life book? Is it a race book? The race speeds by so fast page time is given to the media than to the race and yet the entire novel turns on those few pages It's odd The first half of the book is purely a family story and that has its very odd moments too Lots of the older girls looking like golden greyhounds and being beautiful and Velvet looking boyish or like Dante huh? Lots of Donald being well impossible Lots of inadvertently hilarious mealtimes And some passing commentary that never fails to make me ra

    MOBI Enid Bagnold ì National Velvet PDF/EPUB ´ ì national download, velvet download, National Velvet ePUBNot long ago I read Cold Comfort Farm by Stella Gibbons written in the 1930s and set in rural England just like this novel There was an illuminating introduction to that book in which the editor explained how Gibbons was parodying a writing style and subject matter popular in that era If you've read any DH Lawrence you will have a feeling for what I'm referring to the inarticulate but powerful Nature of women and th

    MOBI Enid Bagnold ì National Velvet PDF/EPUB ´ ì national download, velvet download, National Velvet ePUBOne of the best books ever written about childhood adulthood and all the days in between Horse lovers will of course find this fascinating but it's a book that's much than a horse book It's a book about family and relationships and knowing your own self and others I can't recommend it too highly

    MOBI Enid Bagnold ì National Velvet PDF/EPUB ´ ì national download, velvet download, National Velvet ePUBI encountered this novel in a Short Story collection Its negative aspects impressed themselves so much on my mind that I felt that the book itself warranted another separate reviewDon't get me wrong I have nothing against the content of the book The plot line while fragmented had some saving graces Velvet Mi's touching relationship was great There was also some joy to be extracted from the family's Kafkaesue demeanour What made me dislike the book profusely was the prose It was too dense and too niche Bagnold relies too much on cryptic slang For the average horse fanatic in 1930s England I bet the book would've been a mere couple of hours worth of reading But for me and I dare say us all of us who live in the 21st century it's all unintelligible twaddle To add to this it seems that Bagnold has difficulty grasping the basic t
