This was a terrific read and hard to put down at night. It was like running away to join the circus and becoming very connected with the story's most unusual characters. The writing is so rich one can almost smell the smells and hear the sounds of the train, the animals, and the music. All of the characters are enticing -- even the ones who are despicable in nature. I found myself really cheering for the main character in both his present situation and the past events of his life. I will never look at a circus or a nursing home patient the same again.
