Water for Elephants

Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen....
I will give you the short "jest" of the book but I don't want to give anything away, I want you to be able to unfold the story without knowing much like I did.....Jacob who is finishing Vet school leaves it all behind after a terrible loss and he hitches a ride on a train, not knowing this is a traveling circus. From there this is the story of his life with the circus which is engrossing to say the least. This book will literally transport you to the early 1900s and you will be able to feel as though you are there shoveling manure with Jacob. This book did have some hard scenes for me to read regarding the circus animals but I realize it was all crucial to the story ......but that doesn't make it any easier to read. Water for Elephants has it all romance, murder and it is so easy to get emotionally invested in the lives of the characters and the animals within the circus. I loved this book and I can not wait until the movie comes out next year....
Below is the two leads Reese Witherspoon & of course Robert Pattinson who I believe is the prefect Jacob.
I highly recommend this book, I was so lost into the book and finding out what happens next that I read it in 2 days. I also am going to look into Sara's next book that is getting rave reviews Ape House.

You are the second person to say how amazing this book is! It's now my next read! Plus I always need to read the book before seeing the movie, and any movie with Rob is a can't miss :)
