Water for Elephants

I just read the greatest book. My father lent it to me and said “You have to read this book!” So even though I have an entire bookshelf of books to read beside my bed, I picked it up immediately and started it. I was hooked from the first page. Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen is even Canadian, which just makes me like it even more. It is a story about an old man reminiscing on his time in the circus during the Depression, as well as coming to grips with what aging has done to his body and mind. It was a very powerful story, but also very light and easy to read. I absolutely loved it…one of the best books I have read in ages.

PS If you have read it or decide to read it, let me know what you think…
