Water for Elephants

I warned you here  that if everybody else is doing it, that I would do it too.

So even though the description of the book didn't sound that appealing to me, I still decided to read Water for Elephants.
And, as you would imagine from any book that is a bestseller, it is, in fact, quite good. It's so good that I actually read it in 2 days.

Like I said, I'm not into circuses at all (although now I really want to go to one!) and while that is an integral part of the story, it isn't the entire story.

Obviously, you can go to Amazon and find a much better review that what I could write here, but I just want to share that it is a great book. Great characters, good plot line, interesting story. I didn't want it to end when it was over, though.
(I will insert a brief note that if it were to be a movie, it would definitely be rated R. Language, nudity, sexuality, etc. None of this is the focus of the book, there's just parts here and there.) 

If you're looking for something to read, I would recommend this book.

  4. I'm adding it to my list. Thanks for the review. Oh, and I answered your question on my blog but I'll answer here too: my cooking classes are a "just for fun" thing. :)
