    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.

    Kindle Customer says: "Great Narration!!"
    "The narration enhances an already excellent story"
    Overall

    Water for Elephants has all the elements of great fiction. It transports a reader to the facinating life of a traveling circus..and at the same time, beautifully and insightfully speaks to the one thing we all have in common one way or another....growing old. But, what really sets this audiobook apart, is the deliciously cantankerous narration of the aging Jacob who brings his chapters alive when juxtaposed to the rest of this wonderful story. His voice growls and gurgles with the richness of a long long life.
