    Two Books

    Discussion in 'Book Discussion' started by InkDream, Nov 9, 2010.

    I just read these two books and was wondering if anyone else has read them:

    -Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen

    -The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein

    I've been meaning to read Water for Elephants but haven't got around to it yet. How is it?

    I loved it! It's a new favorite. The premise seemed a little questionable until I started reading and then I couldn't put it down. You should check it out. ;)

    I've red them both. I preferred "Water for Elephants" because although "Art of Racing" was quite a moving, proufound book, I felt the narrator - the dog, was a little too smart and onto it for a canine. He was too humanised.

    "Water for Elephants" was quite an insightful look into the life in a circus during the depression. Have you read her new one, "Ape House"?
