Water for Elephants ~ by sara gruen

this book was mildly entertaining at best. i did manage to finish it, but i cannot give a high recommendation. it was a bit rough around the edges for my taste. if a book has redeeming qualities in its characters, storyline, or overall message, i can easily overlook a book's shortcomings in crude language or unpleasant scenes. unfortunately, WFE did not offer much to redeem its shortcomings.

I have a VERY difficult time reading about animal cruelty, and Sara Gruen left nothing out in her descriptions of how some of these animals were treated. But at the same time, those descriptions were important to the story because the made the whole thing much more realistic.
