Book Review: Horse Crazy- Girls and the Lives of Horses by Jean O’Malley Halley is a fascinating cultural and sociological study @NetGalley #ReviewAThon

Why do women love horses? What does our love of horses say bout us? Reading Halley's book was refreshing because it felt as if I finally had the opportunity to sit down with a well spoken and very well educated friend and talk through these questions. She uses stories from her own personal history with horses (some of which made me cry) as well as different sociological and psychological frameworks. She also shares results from an interview she conducted with self-identified "horse crazy," women. The results, especially the way "horse crazy," impacts members of the disability community, were fascinating.

Gould's playful work is purr-fect for anyone who wishes that she knew a little bit more about art history. This book won't make you into an overnight art history expert (which makes sense, because that isn't her goal), but it WILL use adorable cat paintings to introduce you to the major developments of art history in the Western World.
