    Great summer read

    This was a fabulous read! I think I did it in one sitting. Didn't see the movie, I think it would spoil my experience.

    Absolutely superb

    This is one that I wasn't to sure about when it first came out. But I was pleasantly surprised by the book and movie. It was superb and worth the time to read and watch. I'd buy again.

    My MIL recommended this book to me. I absolutely loved it!! I still have not seen the movie but they always disappoint me anyway. I have recommended this book to all of my siblings and friends. I've read it twice already and plan to read it again

    Gorgeous beautiful reading!

    This Reader has been enjoying books since the age of 4 years and therefore is now very picky about choice of reading material. Author style and story content are paramount. I can highly recommend this book. Beautifully written, great story and will tug at heart strings you didn't know you had! Worthy of keeping in my personal library ( they have to be really good to command a place on my shelf) and re-reading from time to time.

    One of my favorites

    One of my favorite books! I read the book way before I saw the movie. The book made me both cry and laugh at parts. This is one of those books that grabs you right from the beginning, and finds you fighting sleep to put it down. Highly recommend.

    Good read

    I really enjoyed this book, but I am not entirely sure about the excitement and raving some folks do, it was entertaining, but not groundbreaking or life changing.

    Seen the movie, now wanna read the story!

    I am very surprised to see this book "Water for Elephants" here cuz I've seen the movie version a few years back and I've loved it so much. It was so emotional watching it and I've even found myself cheering for the animals...especially my favorite, the elephant. Now there is a book I can read...I'm very sure it's going to more detailed and with that, I'm very excited to buy this. Cant hardly wait!
