    Born a Parsi in Bombay, sent to university and medical school in Vienna, Dr. Farrokh Daruwalla is a 59-year-old orthopedic surgeon and a Canadian citizen who lives in Toronto. Once, 20 years ago, Dr. Daruwalla was the examining physician of two murder victims in Goa, India. Now, 20 years later, he will be reacquainted with the murderer.

    Overall

    The first 4-5 hours are difficult to endure. Lots of character introductions and scene setting. But if you can hang through this, you will find this a charming, quirky, funny novel.
    The main charcter is loveable and quite endearing. I felt I was in India along with Dar and the Duckworthians. The author gave me such a feel for the characters. He made me care about their antics in this mysterious country. Now I want to visit India and see the Royal Circus.

    Laurel Shields, 35 and mother of two, awakens to find that her husband, Warren, a prominent local physician, is not in bed with her. Creeping out to the kitchen of their palatial home, she sees him through the doorway of his study, wildly pulling books from the shelves.

    Overall

    I usually like this author very much, but this one dragged on and on. I stuck it out until the end hoping for something worthwhile to happen and sadly it was all for naught. The main characters were either about as deep as a mudpuddle or just trite and boring. Don't waste your credit.

    Only three years old, little Melanie was kidnapped by her father. Six years later, police found her wandering the L.A. streets, her eyes blank. What had become of her in all that lost time...and what secret did she dare not even whisper?

    Overall

    Please tell me that this is not a book written by one of my favorite authors. Where is the dorky loveable hero? Why is the narrator so annoying? And why is the storyline just not good? This is one to skip, sorry to say.

    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.

    Overall

    This book has it all! Loveable animals, the kind hero, scary bad guys,a beautiful girl and lots of suspense.
    The narrators were terrific. The author puts us on the circus train; our hearts with the characters. You will love this book and want to give it to your friends.
