Review: I haven’t seen the movie, Water for Elephants, but I do see how this would make for an eventful movie script. Maybe it’s more epic on the big screens. Personally, I thought I would have liked the novel in Marlena’s point of view instead. Nonetheless, Water for Elephants has a cast of interesting characters. It was a nice shallow walk on the beach of a vast, by-gone thing of the last century – circuses. It didn’t make me think much deeper though.
