Water for elephants
Time for another book recommendation, "Water for elephants" by Sara Gruen. While I read this book, I told myself several times, that "this is a good book" (yes, I do talk to myself sometimes) and it really is! It's about an old man, who is thinking back on the days when he worked in a circus. It might not sound that interesting, but I think it's entertaining and well written as well.
I think it's more than ten years since the last time I went to see a show in circus. But after this book I'm in the mood for circus, maybe I should go to see a show again. Or maybe I should just go to the cinema sometime this summer, when the movie (based on the book) is released.
