Water for Elephants

I am starting to read this for the upcoming movie that is set to come out in 2011, starring Reese Witherspoon, who will play Marlena Rosenbluth, and Robert Pattinson, who will play Jacob Jankowski.
If you want more information about the upcoming feature film, then head to waterforelephantsfilm.com, which highlights new news about the movie and its cast.
Have you read this book yet? If so, what did you think?
Hope you all are having a fun, relaxing summer.
xoxo, Meg

I love love LOVED this book. Cannot recommend it enough. But I kinda hate Robert Pattison so I'm a little bitter they put him opposite Reese Witherspoon.

I've had this book at the top of my "to read" list for a few months, upon recommendation from a few friends with great taste. I'm on the wait list at the library and constantly looking for it at a few local thrift stores that have a great book sections. Glad to hear more positive recommendations! I can't wait to read it.

I read this book a year or so ago, I enjoyed it. Didn't expect Robert Pattinson to play Jacob, but should be a good movie.

Oh I loved this book! And I can't wait for the movie. Didn't really picture Reese playing Marlena...but I am sure she will do the job perfectly.

I've read it, I think Reese will do great but I'm surprised at their choice of Robert Pattinson, he seems too pretty or not masculine enough for that part...maybe because I'm so used to seeing him as a vampire.

LOVED this book and only vaguely heard there was going to be a movie. Didn't picture those two at all, but I'll still look forward to seeing it. It is such an interesting story and I could see how it would be fun as a movie.

I am so excited to watch this! It looks wonderful. I haven't read the book, but I have read her other, "Riding Lessons: A Novel" and love it! Sara Gruen is a great writer.

I started ages ago and I was so moved and cried so much that I put it down with the promise to return. I really must finish it soon. It was superb.

This book was very charming. I read it along time ago, and when I heard they were making a movie I nearly jumped out of my seat. I'm glad you're reading the book first. If the movie doesn't live up to it, I'd hate to see people not give it a chance.
