About the book
With more than four million copies of the book in print, Sara Gruen's Water for Elephants has now spent over three years on the New York Times bestseller list and fourteen weeks at number one.
Fascinating insight into the world of language apes.
The movie of Water for Elephants is currently scheduled for an April 2011 release, starring Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon.
Moving and funny - a genuine page turner.
First chapter is included in the Water for Elephants paperback reprint in November 2010.
Isabel Duncan, a scientist at the Great Ape Language Lab, doesn't understand people, but animals she gets--especially the bonobos. Isabel feels more comfortable in their world than she's ever felt among humans . . . until she meets John Thigpen, a very married reporter who braves the ever-present animal rights protesters outside the lab to see what's really going on inside.When an explosion rocks the lab, severely injuring Isabel and "liberating" the apes, John's human interest piece turns into the story of a lifetime, one he'll risk his career and his marriage to follow. Then a reality TV show, Ape House, featuring the missing apes debuts under mysterious circumstances, and it immediately becomes the biggest--and unlikeliest--phenomenon in the history of modern media.Ape House delivers great entertainment, but it also opens the animal world to us in ways few novels have done, securing Sara Gruen's place as a master storyteller who allows us to see ourselves as we never have before.

Read Review   Want to write a review?
'Propulsive... Gruen writes with the commercial breathlessness of a cozier Dan Brown.'
'Gruen delivers a tale that's full of heart, hope, and compelling questions about who we really are.'
'The biggest accomplishment of Ape House is that it brings bonobos to life. The writing is effortless, as though Gruen sat down and wrote the book in one breezy afternoon.'
'Ape House is difficult to put down, filled as it is with genuine hilarity and heartbreak.'

 

'Consider reality TV, meth labs, over-the-top animal-rights activists, Botox, tabloids and Internet diatribes, and you, too, might come to the conclusion: People should be more like animals. Sara Gruen's entertaining, enlightening new novel will certainly leave you thinking so.'
'Very, very few novels can change the way you look at the world around you. This one does.'
'It is a page-turner written with flair, imagination and a sharp sense of irony.'
'Has the dramatic tension of a crime thriller... Twists and turns, lies, and treachery abound in this funny, clever, and perceptive story.'
'Gruen's astute, wildly entertaining tale of interspecies connection is a novel of verve and conscience - the fate of the bonobos is a brilliantly satirical surprise.'

'had me instantly enraptured'
