    1. Full Review at Booklikes.Disclaimer: This is an adaptation of a movie. This is for middle level readers – chapters and no pictures. I saw part of the movie and didn’t like it. The book was a gift. My comments about the plot are not reflective of the author who doesn’t even get listed in my edition. She had to work with the plot from the movie. This review is more of a criticism of the plot/movie plot than Duey's writing. Spirit is the story of a stallion in the Old West and his adventures [...]

    2. I have many memories of the film; it came out when I was in Kindergarten and I got a brown-and-white plastic horse toy from Burger King at the same time from the film - but I had no idea that it was a book until now. Spirit is very well-written for what it is, and follows the adventures of a wild stallion taken by humans.

    3. I haven't read this book but I've seen the movie.It's the only movie that has EVER made me cry.Makes me sad every time, though

    4. This was my favorite book series as a kid, and I couldn't resist a quick re-read when I found them at the library. This one is a really tight novelization, so if you liked the movie (which I did and still do), you're gonna enjoy the book. It's pretty straightforward. Lots of direct quotes.That said, I do remember buying and reading this book as a wee babe before I had actually seen the movie and it was a great read by itself. I was the weird horse girl in elementary school, so this was right in [...]

    5. More like 3.5 stars. I absolutely loved this movie when I was younger, (I'm definitely going to have to watch it again now that I've read this) but I think I can definitely say the movie was better with this one. I know it's written for a younger audience, but there was so much telling instead of showing And it was a little strange how some manmade things were addressed as completely unfamiliar to Spirit, but then other things he knew exactly what they were. It was still a good short read, which [...]

    6. First off, let me start by saying that I have not *yet* watched the movie.It felt rather off for me during the first few pages (what with having a nameless character being the star of the show not being something I'm accustomed to), but I did get used to it eventually. It's pretty funny how I was thinking all the while that I was watching the movie in my head. I suppose it was due to the easy-to-understand words, as well the active way of storytelling.It had little dialogue, which was great. Wri [...]

    7. I read this in less than an hour as it's so short & obviously written for kids. It was based on the movie so the text was somewhat simple & to the point with some poetic like elements here & there. I liked it very much & found the idea of a story being told from a horse's perspective quite lovely. Spirit is a stallion who's brave & loyal & a fierce fighter for freedom & Little Foot, the human boy he befriends is very much like him & I found that quite touching. &a [...]

    8. I read this in 7th grade. Never saw the movie, but I remember LOVING this book as a 12 year old! A friend let me borrow it after she read it. I was never much of a reader at the time, but couldn't out the book down! I recommend this to kids and also to any adult who needs a break from life. I would read it again.

    9. I was a little nervous in reading the book after watching the movie. I had thought I might hate the book and love the movie, or vice versa.But the excact opposite happened: I loved the book just as much as I loved the movie! Even though it was different from the movie, you can get some more details about Spirit's adventures in the book. Amazing!

    10. This book is a spot on match for the movie of the same title. When the movie was new, I was captivated by it and would of been thrilled to know that this book series existed. I enjoyed this book a lot and it evokes a great deal of nostalgia.

    11. I read this book years ago, back when the movie came out and I was obsessed with it. This is a very faithful novel adaptation of the movie - it has simple language with just a flair lyric pacing. I recommend it for every child obsessed with horses.

    12. Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron is my all time favourite movie and I enjoyed this book as well!

    13. I adored this book as much as the movie. I fell in love with the movie and had to read the book. It's the same as the movie, but still a good read.

    14. This book is great for any student that loves horses. It also contains historical fiction about the American West.

    15. I loved this book along with the movie, it's such a beautiful story. If you love horses like i do then this book is perfect for you. It's such a touching book and its really deep.

    16. Read this book shortly after the movie came out, because I was obsessed with horses. Fell so deeply in love with this book all those years ago!

    17. I didn't like to read when I was younger but this was one of the few books that I actually got through during Elementary School. I loved this book. :)

    18. i like the story of spirit i watch the movie and it make me cry from first tel the last and i hope i will buy a book of spirit full story cuz i love it
