A great read!

I finished reading Water for Elephants last night. Wow. What a great book. I literally took this book everywhere with me, antisipating a free moment to read a few more pages. It was that good people.

What a wonderful story. I don't know why I didn't read it sooner.

It was the quickest I've read a book since my pre children days. Now, this is saying a lot for me. It usually takes me a looong time to finish a book, if I ever even get to finish.

I felt a read need to read it quickly though, I have to admit. The movie is coming out on April 22nd starring Reese Witherspoon, Robert Pattinson, and Christopher Waltz. I really hope they don't F it up!
I'm gonna be pissed if they do.

I'm almost scared to go see it. Why, becuase if it's bad, it might ruin it all for me. All that said, I have to say the trailer looks good!! It looks very Titanic, circus style.

Movie Trailer here   check it out!!

For all of you out there, under a rock, here's a summary of Water for Elephants, a novel by Sara Gruen.

"When Jacob Jankowski, recently orphaned and suddenly adrift, jumps onto a passing train, he enters a world of freaks, drifters, and misfits, a second-rate circus struggling to survive during the Great Depression, making one-night stands in town after endless town. A veterinary student who almost earned his degree, Jacob is put in charge of caring for the circus menagerie. It is there that he meets Marlena, the beautiful young star of the equestrian act, who is married to August, the charismatic but twisted animal trainer. He also meets Rosie, an elephant who seems untrainable until he discovers a way to reach her. "
