Nice love story. Someone implied it had similarities to "The Time Traveler's Wife," which is why I downloaded it, but I couldn't find the similarity. Not exactly a page-turner for me.
This book will make you laugh , and cry...it is such a different setting that most books - but it is a great story. And after it you will probably want a pet Elephant for yourself :-)
Gives great insight into what circuses are really like. The characters are distinct and are memorable. The author paints a picture of the various scenes and you feel like you're there with them. Great listen!
Understanding the frustration of living in a 93 year old body is not something I've read about. I also knew nothing about the circus during the 1930s depression. This work of fiction gives great insights into both, in a fabulously entertaining way. The narration was a major enhancement to the story.
This is not a book I would normally pick but it was fantastic. Just about any reader will enjoy this book. Great story, narration that brings it right to life, and fun from start to end!!
Really enjoyed the two narrators of different ages. Made all the difference and showed a dimension sometimes missed in a cold reading.
The story was interesting and entertaining; the readers were a real treat to listen to. I don't know which to do first: find another book by the author or find another book read by these gentlemen.
I absolutely loved this story!! I couldn't stop listening to it. Trust me, take the time to listen to this story. It's heartwarming, funny, reflective and exciting all rolled into one. I give it TWO THUMBS UP!!

This story was very captivating. I really enjoyed the atmosphere of the depression era circus, the innocence of the public, and the ability of the characters to manipulate them. The absolute power the depression gave the few over the many was compelling.
The main character was crusty and confused about the present but clear and passionate about his past; much like I imagine it realy is for any person his age and in his situation. The narration was excellent and brought the characters to life. I was very pleased with the ending.
