This is my second time reading this book, the first was 10 years ago. Back then i loved it. I was more interested in the horse business/racing aspects than the storyline but it did hold my attention and was entertaining. This time around I still enjoyed the breeding and racing segments but began to grow tired of the personal stories. It became a soap opera with a few too many tragic episodes, a hard to believe side story that, in my opinion, was akin to having someone's body taken over by aliens and a less than satisfying conclusion. Once certain characters and places began to bow out of the picture, my interest began to wane.
I got this book as a gift years ago from my husband. I lost the book but now I have another copy. It was a wonderful story.
Hidden in the exciting story is a primer on the horse racing industry.

It graphically details the history and breeding of Thoroughbreds and the sometimes seamy business side of this "Sport of Kings".

Author William Kinsolving has obviously done a great deal of research and the reader will find himself becoming more informed about the whole business as the tale unfolds into what another reviewer said read like a teleplay for a miniseries - what's wrong with that?
Of all the books I've read in my lifetime, this is right up there at the top as one of the best, if not the best. The book was just like new, and a wonderful price for a hardback.
Loved this book. Had read it many, many years ago and enjoyed it just as much this time as before. Glad I found it.
This book was given to my mother by her mother when the book hit the stands. I read it for the first time in 1996. Since then I have read it 3 other times and I am currently starting it again. Even though I have read it so many times and I remember the different ups and downs of the story it is still an awesome book to read in repitition. This is the perfect story in deplicting that no matter what back ground you come from if you want something bad enough and your willing to do what it takes to get there, there is no stopping you. I have to say out of all the novels i have read in my life (quite a few, i love to read anything with termoil) this one remains my favorite and probably always will.
This is one of the best novels I have ever read. There is so much detail and information that you just want it to go on forever. I read this book at least once a year. I just wish I could get it on my kindle!!! Please, please, PLEASE! Who do I have to beg?!?!
This book is for someone who likes books like Gone with the Wind- they go own for decades. The characters were very empathic.
