Review: Water for Elephants

Water for Elephants Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen

My review

rating: 5 of 5 stars
I have to say I found this book an easy read & thoroughly engrossing. It moved along at a rapid pace, and the author did a fabulous job of portraying some in-depth characters. Again, another book I would not typically have selected on my own, but a quite enjoyable read. It was also a fascinating and (as far as I know having visited The Ringling Museum in Sarasota, FL and having watched Tod Browning's Freaks) accurate portrayal of circus life in the 20's and 30s' in the US.

I love readers--My sister and I have embarked upon our own project and decided to blog about it. Check it out in your "spare" time! Although it seems you have tons of blogs to visit.

I couldn't agree more - I was not expecting to enjoy it as much as I did!
