really liked it

Good book. I loved the photos of circuses from the time period. Jacob was a wonderful character. Marlena was a little frustrating and flat at times. I did not like the way they used August's "schizophrenia" as the excuse for the violence. It was not even remotely believable - he was just simply mean. There was also the question of the horses. I thought all the horses were killed, but then they reappeared afterward at a performance. ??? The ending was a little too neat for my liking. Otherwise, I thought it was a good book.
