Finally I've had some time for summer reading. Here's two of my recommendations for your own summer reading lists.
Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen -
An elderly man, named Jacob, struggles with his own aging process and remembers his circus adventures during the Depression Era. Jacob's tales revolve around the evil manager of the menagerie, a lovely circus performer, and an understanding nursing home caregiver.
Captain Correlli's Mandolin by Louis de Bernieres-
A tale of forbidden love between an Italian captain and the Greek daughter of the local doctor during the Italian occupation of Greece during the Second World War. An expert tale of love and of the bitterness of war. De Bernières echoes the fanciful writing style of Gabriel Garcia Marquez.
