Weekend Reading: The Night Circus
Amazon Best Books of the Month, September 2011
: Erin Morgenstern’s dark, enchanting debut takes us to the black and white tents of Le Cirque des Reves
, a circus that arrives without warning, simply appearing when yesterday it was not there. Young Celia and Marco have been cast into a rivalry at The Night Circus
, one arranged long ago by powers they do not fully understand. Over time, their lives become more intricately enmeshed in a dance of love, joy, deceit, heartbreak, and magic. Author Morgenstern knows her world inside and out, and she guides the reader with a confident hand. The setting and tone are never less than mesmerizing. The characters are well-realized and memorable. But it is the Night Circus itself that might be the most memorable of all. –Chris Schluep
To be honest, it took me a little while to get into The Night Circus. Worth it! I’m glad I didn’t give up. But it’s unusual, enchanting though it takes a little while to cast its spell. Romance readers looking for something a little different, but still a romance, might give The Night Circus a try. http://erinmorgenstern.com/
