Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I had no idea what this book was about when I chose it. If someone told me it was an entertaining read about the circus during the 1930 depression era I may have put it back down. I ended up really liking this book, I could not put it down. It flits back and forth from the past and present day Jacob Jankowski and how his life changed one summer after being told some grave news and then jumping a circus train. Fantastic, emomtional read!
I heard it's being made into a movie with Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon, bad casting if you ask me!
