Alas, I am once again a bit behind on my reading with this one. Yes, it came out in 2006. Yes, everyone and their mother has read it and seen the movie. 587 more words

Water for Elephants, by Sara Gruen

For a story about the circus – the magical, dizzying, fluid, fantastical circus – this is a helluva downer. It recounts two parallel narratives in the life of Jacob: first, his youth spent as the runaway amateur veterinarian in a Depression-era circus; second, wasting away in a nursing home. 213 more words

Water for Elephants

This book was so ridiculously average. For those that haven’t already read it, it follows Jacob, a runaway veterinarian student, as he leaves his regular life and accidentally joins a circus. 162 more words
