Review:

"In such a big, ambitious book, there are bound to be a few slow spots. With so many characters in action, it's inevitable that some stories will be more compelling than others....And the novel, as a whole, is so sunny that a realist...might wish for a splash or two of darkness to even out the canvas. But this is HORSE HEAVEN, after all, and a heaven of any kind implies a happy ending....There's a benign deity at the helm in Smiley's world. Her final chapters have a wonderful restorative quality, filled with grace notes and epiphanies that offer a fitting close to this smart, warmhearted, winning book."

Bill Barich, New York Times Book Review, 04/02/2000

Review:

"Odds are, even those who've never been to a racetrack and who don't particularly care for horses will nonetheless find Jane Smiley's new novel, HORSE HEAVEN, an absorbing read....Smiley pulls it all off by writing flawlessly..Instead of seeming cutesy--Mr. Ed in literary garb--the animals' point of view (like the humans') is complex, persuasive and thought-provoking..That we take the animals' thoughts, emotions and memories seriously is one of the real triumphs of the book..Coming into the home stretch, it's Smiley's insight into her characters' psyches...that makes this book so winning."

Debra Spark, San Francisco Chronicle Book Review, 04/09/2000
