Water for Elephants review by Kara
on September 11, 2017
Water for Elephants overall was a decent book, but I would not call it one of my favorites. There were very few parts in the book that was shocking or interesting. Although it gives great detail, some of it is unnecessary. I did like the ending because it revealed that it was not Marlena who killed August; it was Rosie, an elephant. It seemed intriguing at first from reading the summary, but in my opinion, it was not as good as it sounded. It was very predictable, and it never had that "wow" moments besides the ending. I prefer more action packed and cliff hanger books that leave me on the edge of my seat. It does include romance, so if you like romance books this is a good choice. But if you're looking for a thrilling book, Water for Elephants is not for you.
