Water for Elephants is about an old man named Jacob Jankowski who lives in a nursing home. During that time he gets flashbacks of his youth. From the moment his parents get into a car accident to when he ends up taking care of the animals on a circus. The novel is a mix of adventure and romance.
The novel takes you through all the challenges and feelings Jacob was feeling. Very well written makes you feel as if you're there. As well as heartbreaking at times when romance is involved.
I would highly recommend this novel if you're into adventure, conflict, and a little romance. Very heartfelt and makes you want to read it all over again. I highly recommend you read the novel first before seeing the movie.
