Book: Water for Elephants
Author: Sara Gruen
Recommend: Definitely- a great read…
I had been putting off this read for months, simply because I couldn’t imagine enjoying a book about life in the circus. I am now regretting waiting so long to pick this one up. It was definitely more than I expected and I thoroughly enjoyed the read.
I think my favorite thing about this book is the in depth development of the characters. I also liked hearing the story from both the young and old versions of Jacob.
The only negative I would mention with this book is that sometimes the switch between young Jacob and 90 or 93 year old Jacob come at the strangest moments and it detracts from the story.
Overall, it was a great read and definitely something I can’t wait to revisit.
