bookshelves: 2010, audio-read

** spoiler alert ** I can't wait for this movie to come out in 2011. I hear Rob Pattinson is playing the part of Jacob Jankowski, a 90- or 93-year-old man, living in a nursing home, dreaming about his younger years when he worked for the circus (first for Benzini Brothers and later for Ringling Brothers). The beginning caught me because, of course, i wanted to know who killed August and why. The killing of August was well-thought-out by Ms. Gruen. The love story & desperation of Jacob and Marlena kept me reading and wondering how they would get away and be together.
