AlohaSD: So WFE, I thought that was an uplifting ending, however implausible.
Kiva: Very sweet ending
Krystle: I thought it was sweet since you thought the book was going to end sadly and it didn't :)
AlohaSD: How nice was the circus owner!
Krystle: "Wouldn't he be better off at home," says the officer. "This is home."
AlohaSD: Okay, loved that Rosie was the one who offed August.
Krystle: YES!!!! Nice surprise twist. Didn't see that coming. Delightful
Kiva: Nothing like a murderous elephant. LOVED it
Krystle: Looking back, the author foreshadowed that with Rosie being a lemonade thief. (removing her stake)
Our Chatzy chat room decided to majorly fail on us during the middle of such an important discussion. We reconvened using a different chat service…
Kiva: Where were we? Murder by Elephant
Krystle: I really thought Marlena murdered August at the beginning. Author was sneaky!
Alohasd9607: Poor August, getting trampled to death. NOT.
Dizzy: I loved it. Speaking of running away - he did it in the beginning and the end.
Krystle: Good point Dizzy!!!!! He came full circle.
Kiva: Man, I loved him crawling across the train roofs. So Ninja.
Dizzy: Superman! I really want to see the train roof scene.
Krystle: He's drunk and had a head injury! WTF Jacob?
Kiva: I kept thinking Rob will need a stunt man.
dizzy: LOL wires and harness...
Alohasd9607: Definitely a stunt man. I don't trust Rob. :(
The book club absolutely enjoyed reading Water for Elephants and cannot wait to see the movie adaptation. I know...we're going to have to be quite patient since filming hasn't even begun. ;) Thanks to everyone who joined in on our Sunday chats to discuss the book. I had an awesome time. I'll be putting up a poll shortly to vote on which book to read next. Stay tuned!
