Review: Water for Elephants
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I picked this up for free from the Amazon Lending Library. I recently read Night Circus and thought I might enjoy one more circus related book before I head back into genre fiction once again.
The writing was solid, the characters each believable and likable, and the story interesting. The book’s strength came from a wonderfully researched circus train and a dismally realistic portrayal of the despair of old age. Each world grounded the other in reality and made this story something special.
