Nice story but very clumsily written,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Water for Elephants: A Novel (Paperback)
Although the story is engaging you can't help but get the impression that the author only just discovered the thesaurus.
The stripper scenes are so obviously written by a woman that they're cringeworthy and the parts from an old Jacob's point of view feel like they're written by a teenager tasked with an assignment named, "What being old is like"
Overall, a nice story and worth a read if you can ignore the badly written prose.
