Not Mandatory but Freaking Good: Water for Elephants
Have you guys read this book? My roommate Amber let me take it to Nigeria and thank God for her; my sleep schedule didn't change for about two weeks so I spent the first couple of nights reading Water for Elephants before heading to bed.
Sara Gruen's novel is the story of Jacob, a 93 year old man who joined a traveling circus during the Great Depression.
While the novel didn't rock my world, it was a great and entertaining read so I recommend it.
I'm sure I can't imagine all the ways the film is going to suck in comparison.
