Black Beauty - Anna Sewell

This is nearly 300 pages of descriptions of people being cruel to animals (unsettling), and better techniques for raising horses (boring). I appreciate what this book is, and what it was trying to do, but the unsettling/boring roller-coaster ride was too much for me, and I didn't make it through.
