First, I adore Steve Martin! The story line was very interesting to me because I am not 'in' the art world but have always been curious about the characters that make it up and have made it up for my life time and beyond. Steve Martin's style is so easy on the ear and I love his analogies...sometimes on the edge of cliche but he always hits it on the head and I get it when he describes things in that way. Steve Martin is Analogy Man :-) Campbell Scott did a fantastic job narrating this novel. In a way his voice is as close to Steve Martins as someone can get but he had his own twist and he toggled back and forth throughout the characters flawlessly. This was a fun listen. Thank you Steve and Campbell...
The story line of Water for Elephants is about a time and business in history I would have never known about if not for Sara Gruen's novel. The old Jacob's narrator (I believe was voice of) John Randolph Jones is why I listen to Audio books. His voice was smooth and filled with warmth and character. David LeDoux introduced us to an array of characters through his voice talents. As it always is in the world of books, I loved the book but I can't wait to see the movie!
