Nancy RJ McGill should be a writer herself. I was vascilating about reading this book, because many of the other reviews were negative. RJ's review convinced me it was worth giving it a try. I definitely wasn't sorry. Thanks RJ!!

Frank Really? You guys think that about this review? She's wrong about everything. Gruen can't write.

Heather Too late. Bought it from barnes&noble the other day ! I guess I'll see how it goes.

Shannon Parnell I loved this book and this is a great review. I couldn't put it down and at the end I needed to know what happened to him.

Noelle Heiser because of the amount of negative reviews there are my opinion is swayed in their direction. Although i will eventually read the book, im not all too excited ti read it because of the negative reviews. The troubling thing is that i cannot stand a book without strong characters so im not sure how it will.go...

Sierra Elsfelder I read the book Water for Elephants over the summer and it gave me chills. The transition between Jankowoski as an old man to his circus boy days were confusing but had a lot of rhythm. I liked this book a lot and I'm hoping I find more books like this one to read. It was very dramatic and left me begging for more as the words spilled across the page. It is by far my favorite book I’ve read in a while.

Michelle Smith Rj - What a beautiful review! I loved how you said, "Hurry, hurry, step right up, readers and book lovers everywhere!" You should write something of your own. You have a fan in me!
