Wow-wa!

Just finished Water for Elephants. It was A-MA-ZING!
I can't even tell you why I liked it so much. There are too many reasons.
The story. The character development. The emotion. The ending.
Oh.my.god. The ending.
Please read it so we can discuss.

I just read this last month.

LOVED IT.

I'm having a hard time deciding if I want to go see the movie or not. (as always - I'm afraid I'll be disappointed).

There is one passage where the "old Jacob" talks about how he has to pretend to know what's going on, so no one thinks he's losig his marbles...had me in tears. All I could think about was my grandfather who just died. I wondered how often and for how long my Papa Jack had these thoughts.

I read the book so quickly - loved it! I can't wait to see it in the theater because of ROB (heh-hem!) (teehee) but also because the movie just looks vibrant and beautiful.

I liked the inclusion of the pictures in the book. I love Rosie's actions against August. I thought the book ended perfectly!
