Water for Elephants, Sara Gruen

Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen is definitely something to be read. In this very compelling novel a young man Jacob Jankowski’s life changes dramatically and in an instant. At the same time his life seems like it is done with and over he minds a way to change it around. Jacob does something that every child has threatened to do and that every parent has suggested at some point. He runs away and joins the circus. The circus is something that every child dreams of being a part of because of the glamor and all of the wild animals that are dreamt to be pets. Soon does he find out that the circus is not everything that he has imagined. On his adventure to find out who he is and what he stands for, he also finds love and a higher sense of purpose and friendship to the ones around him.

I highly recommend this novel because it provides an insight to what it is like to turn your life around. When everything was going for the worst Jacob found a way to make everything better. I recommend this to anyone who is trying to take life as it comes to him or her. I of course recommend it before seeing the movie. Until next time,

Keep turning the pages,
