Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen is unlike other novels I’ve read so far. I never thought of life in circus. Hence, it was mesmerizing and thought provoking. I’m tempted to read more about life in circus.
Sara Gruen has brought out various human and animal characteristics so beautifully. In India, Elephant is very precious especially because of Shri Ganesha. Hence, I felt so much admiration for Rosie. She reminded me of the Hindi movie, Haathi Mere Saathi. Overall, the story has depth and Jacob Jankowski inspired me to value old age.
