Sometimes it takes me awhile to catch up to what the rest of the world is reading. I’m too busy with my own stuff to keep up. But after I finished the Agassi book I was ready for some fiction and decided to download “Water For Elephants” on my Kindle. Sara Gruen’s novel has been a fixture on bestseller lists and will be a movie next month with Reese Witherspoon. I figured I’d better get with the program.
So far, I’m loving it. What a unique voice Gruen has and what a fascinating backdrop. If you told me I’d be reading about a circus, I’d say, “Nah.” But I was hooked from the first page and have stayed hooked.
If there’s anything else I should put on my Must Read list, please let me know. I love recommendations.
