Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen

Just as he is about to graduate with an Ivy League degree in veterinary medicine, Jacob Jankowski's life is turned upside down by the death of his parents and the loss of his future.  Jumping a circus train, Jacob starts a whole new life.

This was an entertaining book but I was disappointed because I didn't feel it lived up to the hype around it.  It just seemed to be the same old boy runs off to the circus story to me.
