wrenching end.This is the story of Mighty Mary, an elephant, who in infancy is ruthlessly taken from her world and raised in America to become one of the most celebrated circus performers This reminds me of Ernest Thompson Seton s wildlife animal stories We can look at the world through the animal s eyes and understanding that they are not at all that different from us they also have feelings and emotions, capable of complicated thought and reasoning They are capable of imagination and love But this is not a kids story, there are some very dark sides to it The innocence of the animals makes people s actions look even monstrous.From the first few pages, Mary gets our sympathy There are wonderfully poignant words about Mary s longing for her mother, her past life and her friends It tugs at the heartstrings Descriptions of nature and animals are full of poetic metaphors and similes In contrast, the world of people is full of suffering, injustice, and cruelty Even the ones who think to be kind are inadvertently cruel We get to know how Mary s life changes and how she changes with it It is a long way, and it doesn t become easier for her.We encounter many interesting characters Mary formes an unusual connection with rebellious circus performer Christine They have a deeper understanding of each other, sharing almost the same fate, trapped in the world they cannot control performing tricks to avoid pain But ultimately we are learning about ourselves, about the human world There are some very astute observations, which will keep you thinking.I truly enjoyed this book, even though I was often in tears It is beautifully written and I highly recommend it flag 3 likesLike see review Jan 17, 2019 Ros rated it it was amazing One of the most poignant and eloquent reads I
