Return to Book Page. I wanted to see if the ending would be as trite as I predicted. Definitely a book I’d consider a lighter read and in the chick-lit genre – thoroughly enjoyable: The plot focuses on the main character’s daughter and her eventing career.
May 15, Jenny rated it it was ok. I read this because, as the ssra who suggested it said, “it’s about horses and it’s easy to read”–and I’d read the first book. The main character was really annoying everything makes her cry. Flying Changes Sara Gruen.
Other editions – View all Flying Changes: I guess I would just describe it as poor chick lit. The experience of traumatic injury is misunderstood and misrepresented.
Reading Gruen’s books have opened my eyes to a whole different world. If I EVER thought about speaking to my mother the way she did, I’d be sleeping in the barn and be lucky to have some goddamned hay to cover with. While her “knight in shining armor,” Dan, is her strength right now, she often finds herself holding up one end of his vet practice while he travels around rescuing mistreated horses.
The story flows and kept my attention from beginning to end. Once again a shallow treatment of serious things.
Flying Changes (Riding Lessons, #2) by Sara Gruen
Books by Sara Gruen. For Saa because she Once again Annemarie and Eva come to the fore, but this time the focus is on Eva and her desire to tread in the family footsteps and take up an equestrian career. I wonder if she’ll write another book any time soon Jul 14, Ingrid rated it really liked it.
There are a changss of big moments in the book that would otherwise have you thinking “how does this much happen to one family,” but Sara Gruen still pieced everything together to make the story believable. One bad ride, makes her a weak and insecure woman and terrible mother.
Anyway, the book starts out with lots of horse stuff and I was a bit put off by it, but figured hey, read something different- maybe cnanges a good book! But it is an unanticipated tragedy that will most drastically alter the fragile world of one remarkable family—even as it flings open gates that have long confined them, enabling them all to finally ride headlong fying free. Oh the teen angst!
Though I didn’t enjoy this one as much, it was a good read all the same. The heroine-narrator drove me nuts. I liked Water for Elephants actually but it had some depth to it and some good character development.
And then the last third of the book takes a spectacular turn for the melodramatic with rain soaked eventing courses, car accidents and drama over gaining custody of a baby. I will read any book about horses. This was a terrible, terrible book. She’s gone from being a complete basket case to being only spastic.
Annemarie is not an easy character Based on the reviews I read before starting this second chnges following Riding Lessons, I was worried I wasn’t going to like this. I love reading about how far people will go for their families and also horses.
The divorce doesn’t help either. Water for Elephants was truly incredible, but the Flyimg Lessons series seems like it was written by another person entirely.
Yeah, sure you did, you flaming asshole- as soon as you realized how bad you screwed up you ran out he ran to Jared!

May 05, Brenda rated it liked it. So in the end, I hated this book and I pray I don’t forget this author’s name and read more of her garbage. So, why did I devour the pages?
Flying Changes Sara Gruen No preview available – What a waste of my time. If you’re a horse person and don’t think you’re crazy, you’re probably wrong but it’s OK.
