This was a great story of a old man looking back on his youth. It was a enjoyable book to read but halfway into it I read a description of the book online and immediately began thinking about the way the story could go. But to my disappointment the story was mostly detail about the first 3 months at the circuit and a quick few paragraphs about all the years in between.

I was looking forward to reading about the hardship involved in taking care of a new wife, an unborn child and the animals that Jacob was left with. Unfortunately that all was summed up in the ending.

But beyond that it was a great story that shows us that time is not something we can stop or slow down.
