Water for Elephants - Sara Gruen

This book was amazing! It was recommended to me by a co-worker, and I'm so happy I read it. Being a former clown, I'm partial to circuses and such things. Some parts were pretty messed up, but I imagine that's how it was during the depression. You get to see the darker side of the circus. I loved the story, and I was interested the entire time. It read really fast and had great characters. I want an elephant! It had good twists and funny moments. I was surprised to find that many of the events were "true" or at least circus legend from the past all mixed in together. That's cool.

Yeah Sara Gruen!
