Definitely in my Top 10

Water for ElephantsWater for Elephants by Sara Gruen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is firmly positioned in my top 10 best reads ever. A riveting plot with full, rich characters (including the animals), written in simple yet powerful prose. The way in which the two storylines (old Jacob and young Jacob) are intertwined is masterful, and the conclusion of each, equally satisfying. A truly wonderful book.
