Review
I really liked this book because I have never read a book like this before. It didn't give me all of the character traits of all of the people in the book, it just got straight to the point.

This book made me laugh, it made me cry, basically it made me feel actual emotion. My favorite portions were the ones that showed the perspective of the 90 some year old Jacob. He oscillates between being old curmudgeon to a charming old man (it would be beneficial to know why he had such dramatic changes of personality). The younger Jacob was a sweet character who got caught up in the life of the circus and fell in love with his boss's wife - a boss that might I add is certifiably insane. There is some surprising twists in the novel, and overall the book was quite enjoyable.
