"Water For Elephants" by Sara Gruen

Water For Elephants by Sara Gruen was pretty good but not great.  I was not “wowed” by it. 

Reasons to read this book:
(1)  great characters; (2) animals are part of the story; (3) Jacob Jankowski at 93 or so yrs. old, he’s not sure.  The part of the story when he is in the nursing home is hilarious!! (4) it has a very good ending; (5) it is going to be made into a movie.

Reasons not to read this book:
(1)  The plot of the story was a little confusing to me; (2) The prologue gives away the story.  I suggest you skip it if you decide to read this book; (3) some swearing in it.

Have you read this one? What did you think of it? You can help Canine Lifeline (a dog rescue organization that saved our dog, Abby) by leaving a comment on any of our blogs in March. We will donate 50 cents per comment at the end of the month.
