Marlena

So I fiiiiiiinally got to see "Whiskey for Elephants"!

(Blogger image fail)
So, I read the book a few months ago, in advance of a screening that was meant to happen outside of Seattle.
Although I really liked the picture the story painted and my heart strings were tugged by the compassionate nature of the lead, I had issues with the plot - namely, why in the hale do Jacob and Marlena actually fall for each other?
It's just sort of assumed of the principle characters take that leap from "hi, nice to meet you" to "let's start a new life together".

Hey There New Schmexy Water For Elephants Clip - Woah Spoiler Alert!

I'm a stickler for reading books before I see the movie, that being said, movie Marlena is coming across waaay more troublesome than book Marlena - she's just asking for it!
However, maybe this character/story development bridges the gap between "I met my boss' wife" and "I'm so in love with her" - never quite made assumed leap when reading... just me?
Thanks TK :)
