I just finished reading Water For Elephants By: Sara Gruen and I must say, I loved the book! The book is set in the 1930's where a man named Jacob has jumped onto a traveling circus! The book is based around Jacob's experiences on board the train and also the people he meets.
The book is researched so well that you really feel like you are with Jacob as you read this book. The character development is very good I thought, and there is never a dull moment in this book! It is a soilid read throughout!
Overall, I would give this book an 9/10
Happy reading all!
