Water for Elephants
The author first started with a prologue of a scene that will happen at some point in the book. The reader knows something climatic is going to happen, so wants to read on. The author kept my attention because of the prologue. It's like you know the main part of an important scene but you don't know how the characters got there. As I am introduced to new characters, some of the names are familiar from the prologue so I want to learn more. I really have no idea how this book is going to turn out, but I just hope the main character finds happiness in his life. His entire life and what he has worked for is gone so he has to start over, and I just want him to be happy. He didn't deserve wat happened to him and i believe everyone needs happiness in their life.
