Yes it is, and its good.
Great book! Haven't seen the movie yet. Heard that is good too.
I loved how the story is told through the eyes of an old man telling his life story. I work in a nursing home and some of these people have led amazing lives, yet all we see sometimes is this old body and not the person behind it. the story was beautifully told and the whole circus worlds really came to live when reading it. One of my all time favourites as well.
so wht book was it

It wasn't the chatacters so much as the story its self. I could myself sitting in a nursing home listening to this man tell me his tale. I could see his old face and hear his voice. I wanted to be there, at that time, riding the rails and being part of that amazing traveling circus.
I was the same Thembu. I enjoyed the first part of the book but it did seem to drag in the middle. I did persevere and did not regret it. The characters really developed themselves into a lovable story.
I am not a movie-book type of person though.
I loved the way this book joined the past current life of Jacob. I was trying to do a facebook discussion of this book but it kinda fell through. People liked it just no one discussed
