Water For Elephants

Water for Elephants Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Not much new in the main plotline of this book: boy meets girl, girl is already married, boy gets girl with help of elephant. OK, so that last bit is the key: the world of the old circus train is so wonderfully described, it’s hard not to get sucked in and see all these things happening (many of the stories actually did happen and were deftly woven into the book). That saved the book for me, since I thought it was otherwise a somewhat unremarkable plot.
