Arianna Water for Elephants starts out with the main character, Jacob Jankowski, reflecting on a dramatic memory of his past and then returns to the present where he is living in a nursing home. The book then went back to the past when he was in his 20's, dealing with the death of his parents, and hopped onto a circus train which he now works for. I like how the author went from past to present to past again. I think it worked well for the beginning of the book. Jacob is just beginning his job with the circus and is working well but isn't officially "in" yet. I wish that the author would get into the plot of the book and I look forward to what will happen in the next few chapters.
