Water for Elephants

I have to say that I was disappointed in this book.  To me it was very dark with too many bizarre and cruel things happening to the animals and people. I expected some of this  because of the circus setting, but it was depressing after a while. 
Has anyone read a good book lately that you can recommend?

  1. I just finished The Red Garden by Alice Hoffman, and I have read Water for Elephants, and you are right. It is dark and depressing, but the story is about a terrible time in history. I am anxious to see what they do with the movie. Annie Joy's has a great list of books on her blog and she gives reviews weekly.Also, check out Half-Broke Horses by Jeannette Walls.
