Welcome to my first ever book review.
I personally never read book reviews so this should be, erm, fun.
First of all, I remember clearly stating when I asked for recommendations to keep ‘em clean since I am a bit on the prudish side. WHAT WOULD YOU PEOPLE HAVE RECOMMENDED IF I HADN’T SAID THAT?
Sweet tenderloins! There was swearing,liquor, strippers, prostitutes, murder and boobs galore!
However, it was a very good book. And it has a pretty cover. Sure I say I picked it because it was the most recommended, but truth be told when I was facing the fiction section at the bookstore it all boiled down to which one was the prettiest.
SUCKER FOR PRETTY PACKAGING ***RIGHT HERE***
Since the moosh’s favorite movie lately is Dumbo, and Water for Elephants takes place at a circus, the similarities between Disney and Ms. Gruen are plentiful. (Well, after you take out the swearing, strippers, prostitutes, murder and boobs. Surprisingly there’s a bunch of liquor flowing in Dumbo. Pink elephants anyone?) I never knew what a roustabout was until reading the book, I just sang along to the song blissfully naive of roustabouts
drunken rich history. And I also get it now why an elephant in a circus is such a big deal. Who knew?
What else goes in a book review? Can I even call this a book review? Well, I can ask that if there are any books on my big list that may be too much for my tender brain to process give me a little warning, you saucy book readers you.
