Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
Our May book club selection. I found the first half pretty boring despite of or because of how beginning spoiled the end, but I enjoyed the end a little more. Still, it was a little predictable, and didn't have a lot of deeper literary value.
It's interesting though that a lot of research went into the book to make both the experience of working on a circus and the actual elephant realistic. I respect that.
I also agree with my dad that the book could have used "more elephant."
