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.

I just litened to it for the second time and found it just as delightful as the first. The evil characters are appropriately creepy while the 2 main characters make you cheer for adultery. The narrator did a good job of helping you to recognize each character by tone and inflection. A must for you library.

If you could sum up Brainrush, a Thriller in three words, what would they be?

I purchased this book at Audible by 1 get 2 sale. I wasn't expecting much but was very pleasantly surprised through most of it. At the end it got a little fantastical but overall a good read. It kept me entertained throughout. and I was very happy to discover it is the first of 3 books. Cant wait to continue the journey!
