Question 14:
The author, Anna, had an unhappy childhood. She spent almost all her life at her family's fame where has lovely animals. One time, her friend wanted she run into and catch an animal has shot. She yelled and angry because of that cruel action, and later on she becomes love animals, especially is horse. Her friend has a black horse,really strong and beautiful. She really liked to take care of that horse and understand about horse's life clearly. She took six years to finished the Black Beauty and given it to publish. Later on, her book became the best seller more than her image. Six months after the first published Anna died. The message Anna wants to share with everyone by thus book is the love between human and animal. She gave her own real love with animal to everyone see that animals never were animal but they are human's friend. I like the way Anna used animal's life to talk about people and people's life. I also learned about the love of animal is so amazing.

This book has a beginning with the birth of a baby horse. He grew up with the hard training to become the best vehicle for human. His mother was one of the best vehicles at that time, and never got the bad behavior. Because of his boss got business not successful so he was sold to another one. Her mother was really sad, got sick and died because of that. He didn't know his mother died but inside his heart had a weak feeling. I understand how hard was lost the person we loved and felt sympathy for them. Even though they are not human, just animal but I can feel the personality of those horses. That was a picture about human's life not animal anymore because the feeling they gave each other so strong and their life, their thinking were not of animal. I don't believe I identify with them because my situation different, but I can feel the sadness by this book. It was not the sadness of animals but it was the sympathy feeling of the author. Almost authors wrote about animal's autobiography they always shared about the human's life in it.
