The Night Circus

Book: The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

Pages: 387, Hardcover

The Night Circus is a very magical book.  It’s a fun book.  There is something very enchanting about The Night Circus.

When I had requested it from the library, I was on a very long waiting list.  200 out of just over 200 people.  But imagine my surprise and delight when happened to see a copy of it at the library.  I totally decided that a week was more than enough time to read it, and that was certainly preferable to waiting for a while to get it.

It’s definitely a slow-paced novel, but I got sucked in.  With a magic competition, romance waiting to happen, and being able to visit the circus, I often felt like I was at the circus and I didn’t want to leave.  I didn’t want anything to happen to the circus and was so relieved that everything worked out okay.

There is something very special about this book, and I definitely think it needs at least another reading to really get everything that’s going on.  There are time jumps and different perspectives, and it’s hard to connect the dots.  By the time you figure everything out, the book is over and you’re left wondering what just happened!

There is something very beautiful about The Night Circus, and all the hype surrounding it is very much deserved.  After finishing it, I am completely in awe, and was speechless afterwards.  I want to read it again so much that I’m seriously considering requesting it.  I’ll wait it out, it’s that good!  It’s so imaginative, and so hard to believe that it originally started out as a NaNo novel!

There is something very dream-like about it, and I want it to be real.

It gets a 4 out of 5.  There really isn’t a whole lot of plot going on, but there’s something so special about it.
