This book was the last one we read last year and was enjoyed by all. It's the story of a young Polish man, Jacob Jankowski, who after short series of unforeseen tragic events, finds himself working for the circus. Being a veterinarian student, he works with the animals and makes himself two particularly special friends: Rosie the elephant and Marlena, the prettiest girl he's ever seen. Marlena also happens to be the wife of the header trainer, August.
I watched the recently released film version of this story after reading the book and it was just as spectacular. Both book and movie come recommended from Team Boheem. Next book: Catcher in the Rye.
