Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen
I’ll be honest with you, originally I started reading this book because of the upcoming movie with the Gloriously young and attractive Robert Pattinson. Sigh… yes it’s true. I suppose there are worse reason to read a book! 🙂
Back to the book. This was a very enjoyable and easy read. The author does not require the reader to stretch their imagination to unbelievable limits or introduce anything particularly contriversial. In fact, Sara Gruen masterfully leads the reader through a lifespan, sometimes pulling the reader playfully forward and sometimes slowly gathering momentum. The end result is a satisfying read. Complete. Start to finish.
