    Why we think it’s a great listen: Some books are meant to be read; others are meant to be heard – Water for Elephants falls into the second group, and is one of the best examples we have of how a powerful performance enhances a great story. Nonagenarian Jacob Jankowski reflects back on his wild and wondrous days with a circus. It's the Depression Era and Jacob, finding himself parentless and penniless, joins the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    nothing


    Has Water for Elephants turned you off from other books in this genre?

    absolutely not


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of David LeDoux and John Randolph Jones ?

    the narrator is not the problem, it's the storyline


    Any additional comments?

    the entire story, while it points out some realities most of us don't want to know about, upset me so much I never finished the book. I will delete it from my library permanently!
