306 Days-Rom Films:Till Valentine's:...THE HORSE WHISPERER...is Lush, Majestic, Rich in Artistic Visuals but lacks the grand passion that pulls on heart strings. For a romantic drama, not good. 'LOVE STORY AD HURT HORSE' Subplot of fixing damage of accident carries more weight here. Redford should've stuck w/girl & horse. He & Scott Thomas. Great actors, but script isn't up to their talent. Scott Thomas in English Patient, now there's chemistry. QT: Truth is, I help horses with people problems.

"The Zombie War came unthinkably close to eradicating humanity. Max Brooks, driven by the urgency of preserving the acid-etched first-hand experiences of the survivors from those apocalyptic years, traveled across the United States of America and throughout the world, from decimated cities that once teemed with upwards of thirty million souls to the most remote and inhospitable areas of the planet."

The short stories give an overview of the different ways dogs have been used during times of war, and will be a great starting point for some of the other books about service dogs. Very interesting and well done. Review by Ms. YingLing Reads.
