Its always somewhat of a sad affair to finish a good book. And I just finished one– called The Night Circus.
I really enjoyed this novel!
The novel begins: The circus arrives without warning. and it just blossoms from there.
It’s a circus that only operates between dusk and dawn and is full of magical attractions. It is also the venue for a competition.
A competition without rules, without objective, which only ends when one of the competitors is dead.
The two competitors are inescapably bound to this duel to the death… and fuck things up by falling in love.
The book is seriously well written, and the way the story unfolds and jumps around a bit in time keeps you well engaged.
And the best part are the descriptions of the circus and it’s inhabitants. The prose is simple and elegant and allows your imagination to run wild.
Such colorful descriptions for an all black and white circus!
If any o you are in the mood for an original, inventive, and good story, then I highly recommend picking up The Night Circus.
I got it on my iPad via my kindle app.
I listened to the audiobook version (narrated by Jim Dale) several months ago; I agree, it’s a wonderful book.
“…operates between dusk and dawn and is full of magical attractions…”
Kinda like some people.
