Water for Elephants

In Water for Elephants, Sara Gruen makes the 1930s-circus world come to life and in Jacob gives us a main character we care about. I just didn't want the book to end. It harkened back to that mythical, simpler, more honest America where good seemed to prevail against evil. C'mon, Sarah, do a sequel!
