    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.

    "top of my list for good reads"
    Overall

    i tend to pick books from best sellers lists and reviews and this did not disappoint. i was unsure of the circus theme...but the story line was so much more. this ranks right up there with 'secret life of bees' - which is my all time favorite book! a must read!

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    I'm sad it is over...this just bumped 'Secret Life of Bees' to my number 2 for 'best ever' books!

Not to mention her attempts to bring in the sometimes scary bail jumpers of Trenton and the sudden appearance of a mysterious female stalker, who turns out to have a close connection to Ranger.
