Synopsis

Nonagenarian Jacob Jankowski reflects back on his wild and wondrous days with a circus. It's the Depression Era and Jacob, finding himself parentless and penniless, joins the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth. There he meets the freaks, grifters, and misfits that populate this world. He introduces us to Marlena, beautiful star of the equestrian act; to August, her charismatic but twisted husband (and the circus's animal trainer); and to Rosie, the seemingly untrainable elephant Jacob cares for. Narrators: David Ledoux, John Randolph Jones

I loved this book. The author really draws you into the story with wonderful characters and a rich back drop. You get to know Jacob and cheer for him throughout the novel. I had trouble putting it down...

I found it a wonderful read. It was full of insight, made me laugh & made me sad, with a great ending.

AudiobooksNow review by RoseAnne on 2007-12-08 19:58:01

I thought this was a great story - touched on issues of old age as well as the life in the 30s. The actors who read the story were great too. I really enjoyed it.

A superb book - a page turner. Could not put it down, yet did not want it to end!
