Lately (or maybe always, who knows) it seems like there are a lot of popular books that everyone is loving (thus the popularity) but that don't sound at all good to me when I read the review or synopsis or whatever. But then I figure if that many people like the book, there's obviously something behind that and probably I should suck it up and read the book too. (Does that make me a follower?)
Said sucking it up occurs, and lo and behold, I usually do like the book too.
The most recent example of this would be The Hunger Games trilogy. The synopsis on Amazon did not sound at all good, but I decided to give the books a try and ended up reading all three of them in less than a week.
The book in point at this exact moment though, happens to be Water for Elephants.
However, all these good reviews cannot possibly be wrong.
So if everybody else is doing it, Megan will too.
I bought the book for my kindle tonight and will start reading it whenever I can summon up enough interest. I'll let ya know how it is.
What about you? Have you read it? Your review??
