    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.

    "Captivating"
    Overall

    I loved this book. Humanity towards those who used to be called freaks as well as humanity towards old people and animals. (All of which seem to be lacking today) A wonderful look at how we see things when we look below the surface.

    Born a generation apart and with very different ideas about love and family, Mariam and Laila are two women brought jarringly together by war, by loss, and by fate. As they endure the ever escalating dangers around them, in their home as well as in the streets of Kabul, they come to form a bond that makes them both sisters and mother-daughter to each other, and that will ultimately alter the course not just of their own lives but of the next generation.

    David says: "Somber but gripping"
    "Great Story"
    Overall

    A great story that shows the strength of a mother. This book introduces two female heroes. At times the book will bring you to tears. It will also have you cheering.

    It was a splendid read!!!

    Clare and Henry have known each other since Clare was six and Henry was thirty-six. They were married when Clare was twenty-three and Henry was thirty-one. Impossible but true, because Henry is one of the first people diagnosed with Chrono-Displacement Disorder: periodically his genetic clock resets and he finds himself misplaced in time, pulled to moments of emotional gravity from his life, past and future.

    Herve Bronnimann says: "My Favorite Audiobook so far"
    "Good read"
    Overall

    WARNIING: This may be a book version of a "Chick Flick". This is a wonderful love story if you are able to "get into" the time travel idea and not think about it too much. The more you think, the more confusing it is. It can be graphic at times, but you really do understand the pain and joy the characters feel. I couldn't wait to listen to it every day.
