I have read the book before I watch the adaptation into a movie. I really like the book from the cover to every pages. The author knows how to illustrate the life of the Circus on 1956. Gives me interesting question how it is like to live on that year, on that place and on that type of life living on the Road. I love how Sara show us every type of people and society on that time. How different language, different belief that time was categorized how to have friends. I love the Romance between Jacob and Marlena. And their love for animals. I like Sara illustrate the feelings an emotions in the story. Its nice that even Jacob was put in Elderly house by his children he still understand why they need to do it . In the end he always believe that he had a wonderful life. Things that make us happy is home

If you liked the movie, reading the book is a Must! This was the first book I read on my kindle. I am the type of person that a book has to catch my attention early or I loose interest. At first the book is slow but you can tell that it is setting the scene for the reader. then it grabs you and you Just Can't stop reading! How the author catches you in describing details in a scene is inspiring and watching the film it gets lost. The Book is a true Love Story!
