I did not know what to expect when I bought this book. I had heard it was good - I don't even remember from where - and I thought the idea of a depression era carnival/traveling circus setting sounded really interesting, so I bought the book, brought it on vacation, and read it. And loved it. The book has a depth to it I was not expecting: the problems of aging, the definition of family, animal rights and personalities, love, loss, morality, and on and on and on. Typically I would throw some plot points or character analyses into this entry or spend some time discussing one of the themes. But in this instance, I just want everyone to read the book.
