I bought the book Water for Elephants at a yard sale for a dollar. I would have to say I got more than a dollar's worth of reading entertainment.
It's not a book I would normally read but, I kind of wanted to see the movie because of the actors but now I really want to see the movie because of the story.
The main character, Jacob, narrates his experiences as a young man who joins a traveling circus at an emotional time in his life.
The author easily takes you through Jacob's life at 23 to his life at 93 and back again. The times of past and present flow smoothly together.
I would recommend this book!!! I can't wait to rent the movie now!!!
