Water for Elephants, by Sara Gruen

Forget it. Don't bother, because it's not worth reading. Too much sex. I only made it about a third of the way through, hoping that each scene of sex would be the last and we could simply move on with the story, but no. I'm not even offering to send this one to an interested reader. I'm sorry I picked it up.


  1. When the movie came out, I looked up the Amazon reviews on this book and quickly realized this was not my type of book. Not just too much sex, but adultery that is glossed over.

  2. I remember when this book first came out and it was all the rage on book blogs. I was tempted but every time I looked at the description I realized it was not my kind of book either.
