The Water Knife by Paolo Bacigalupi
The Water Knife by Paolo Bacigalupi
Into the chaos of a prolonged drought step Angel Velasquez—a "water knife"; Lucy Monroe, a hardened journalist; and Maria Villarosa, a young migrant, who dreams of escaping north to those places where water still falls from the sky: All three find themselves pawns in a game far bigger, more corrupt and dirtier than any of them could have imagined.

More About the Author

I am a transplanted Canadian (now also an American citizen) who moved to the States in 1999 for a technical writing job. Two years later I got laid off. Instead of looking for another job, I decided to take a gamble on writing fiction.

I live with my husband, three children, two dogs, four cats, two horses, and a goat in North Carolina.

I loved the book. It was by far one of the greatest finds in the last years. It was funny, full of life and with an inocence that let you wanted more. Great book for everyone.
Uno de los mejores libros que he leido en los ultimos tiempos. Tierno, emotivo, gracioso en momentos y lleno de una inocencia que nos transporta. Este libro es genial y esta escrito de una manera especial. No puedes dejar de leerlo

What a terrific find !! I am an avid reader and do not often find a book that I simply cannot put down, but this is one of them. Great story and so well written that you can almost SMELL what's going on.
I sometimes read 3-4 books a week and rarely enjoy one as much as this. This book is for women AND men.

Me encantó. Lo compré porque la película se filmó el año pasado y la quiero ver, y siempre me ha gustado leerme los libros antes de que lancen las pelís, si son adaptaciones. Quedé encantada, adoré el personaje de Jacob, y disfruté mucho éste viaje a través de la historia del circo. 100% Recomendado.

Después de haber visto la pelicula (que me gusto mucho), mi hermana me regalo el libro. Estaba muy emocionada de leerlo, se que es un bestseller y que probablemente me gustaría.

La verdad es que tenia ganas de leerlo hace tiempo, por el simple hecho de que Jacob, el protagonista, es veterinario (como yo).

Jacob es un joven que esta a punto de terminar sus estudios universitarios, cuando su vida da un cambio inesperado con la muerte de sus padres. Despojado de todas sus poseciones, Jacob decide irse a la fuga y por coincidencia se sube al tren de el Deslumbrante Espectáculo de los Hermanos Banzini.

Jacob se salva de ser tirado del tren por el simple hecho de ser veterinario. El circo tiene muchos animales, y ellos son lo mas importante por el simple hecho de que son los que mas atrae a la gente.

Jacob es joven, veterinario y practicamente inocente. Con un gran corazón y amor por los animales, se convierte en el cuidador de los animales del circo. Es así como conoce a Marlena, esposa del encargado de los animales, hermosa y fragil.

Me encanto como la autora, Sara Gruen, describe la vida del circo en los años 30, donde el alcohol estaba prohibido y la situacion actual del pais no es la mejor. Se nota que investigo bastante de como se manejaban los circos, el ambiente de los mismos, y sobre los animales.

La narración es tal vez lo que mas me atrajo al libro. La historia la cuenta Jacob cuando ya esta viejo, de unos 90 años, desde una casa de reposo para ancianos. Los capítulos se alternan entre el viejo Jacob y el joven Jacob, y los dos son fáciles de gustar.

En conclusion, Agua para Elefantes es una historia que te atrapa desde el principio. Aunque me hubiese gustado mas emoción entre Jacob y Marlena, es un libro romántico, lleno de amor por los animales, acción y lo magnifico del circo.
