Since I just wrote about another book that I just read, I want to mention one more. Rather than food, this one is more animal focused: Water for Elephants, by Sara Gruen. While I don’t get to read as often as I’d like, I do love good fiction, and this was exceptional. I actually put the book down in my lap and said “Wow,” out loud when I was done. The story is focused around a vet at a circus, which may give you some idea as to the nature of the subject matter. It’s brutal at times, so if you’re easily offended, it’s probably not for you. I think it ends with some poetic justice for the animals, though, which is why I’m mentioning it here. The book has been out for a while, so perhaps you have read it, but if not, it’s worth your time.
