Modoc The True Story of the Greatest Elephant That Ever Lived Review Í 102 Ormed a bond that would last their entire lives and would be tested time and again through a near fatal shipwreck in the Indian Ocean an apprenticeship with the legendary Mahout elephant trainers in the Indian teak forests and their eventual rise to circus stardom in 1940s New York City  As the African Sun. i think maybe i have read too many books in my life to be able to like this book or maybe i am too jaded but overall i felt like the book metronomed between insultingly childlike language unbelieveably gooey and ridonkulous love scenes and near constant celestine prophesy eue new ageyness i honestly wished the author would shut up stop trying to make the story impressive and just talk to me about the damned elephant who seemed pretty coolsometimes i was able to set aside the issues i had with the book and get into a scene but then the problems always came back again yeah i still got choked up at some of the animal abuse scenes i m not a total robot i just felt like the story was conflated and done a disserviceand then i researched it to figure out how much was true and it all made sense of COURSE it sounds like the celestine prophecy of COURSE it seems like the story was somehow corrupted the true story of the greatest elephant that ever lived seems to be almost entirely false thanks for not only wasting my time dear author but for not even having the balls to do so honestly
