Water for Elephants, by Sara Gruen
I must confess that I often judge books by their covers, and I love the looks of this paperback! Lovely story too.
It's been awhile since I've read this book.
I remember the first few chapters having a lot of characters, each with funny nicknames, and it was a bit tough keeping track of who's who. Nevertheless, I found it very interesting! Even the animals (Silver Star and Rex) had personality and weren't boring...and I hadn't even gotten to the animal star of the story, Rosie; the elephant.
In that instant, I was dying to know the intricacies and importance of carrying water for elephants.
Of course, it's not all about the animals & the circus; there is a niice love story involved too. Yay!!!
