This review is from: Water for Elephants: A Novel (Paperback)
I bought the book because I had heard about the film and knew I was going to see it, so I felt I should read the book first as I figured if it was good enough to be made into a film it should be a good read. I wasn't wrong. I could hardly put it down, it was so fluid there was almost no good time to stop, even between chapters. a simple genre which is easy to read and get into, but the context is what's so gripping, you just cant help but want to be there and experience that era and that style of life and industry. The characters are so charming and intriguing you just want to meet them. It lets you really visualise everything, a wonderfully colourful and vibrant read.
I thoroughly recommend it.
