Water For Elephants by Sara Gruen



I've been neglecting my book reviews...
But when I finished this one...
I just had to share...


I truly enjoyed this book! What a great way to spend the weekend.

Fun! Spicy! Unexpected! Sweet! Sad!

And best of all... it had a great ending!

I got to see the movie last weekend. With a few minor changes, the movie was very close to the book. The costumes were beautiful.

Aren't they gorgeous?!

Of course Rosie stole the show!

I honestly had no idea what this book/movie was about until I read a review in the newspaper. It sounds wonderful! I'll be sure to pick it up.:)

Ok, so I have not read the book or seen the movie. I heard it was about animal abuse and if there is one thing my heart can't take-that is it. So...clue me in. What's it about and is the book something I am going to cry my eyes out over?
I am such a wuss...

i didn't read the book and saw the movie. I heard the book was much better; but i don't like to read the book after the movie. I would rather see the movie after the book. The movie was so good. I loved it!! veronica Love to read your reviews. You will love the help.

"Water for Elephants" was one of the best books I have ever read! It was so good I just couldn't put it down, but at the same time I didn't want to get to the end. I just wanted to keep myself in that story forever! Great book!!! I'd recommend it for anyone!
