I recently read "Water for Elephants". It is a great story about a boys who runs away and joins the circus and falls in love. The book does have some vulgar scenes in it but nothing you can't skip over or read through quickly if it bothers you. I thought at first I would not like the book because it was about the circus but it is more than that. It is about a young boy falling in love with something he can't have. It is about a boy growing into a man and trying to make things right for others. It is about a woman who is so innocent and sweet she refuses to see past the ugliness of people. There were a few slow parts in the book but overall a great read. It is an easy read and you put it down and pick it up later and remember exactly where you were in the story. The book does not just end either, it lets you know what is going to happen to the characters. I recommend this book to everyone. No I will hopefully see the movie one day.
